When it comes to down to it
everything is only as good as the
complete system it
allows. Because all expenditure would be worth only the
half, if the cabinet or the crossover denies the
necessary precision for the Manger Sound MSW Transducer and
takes influence on a best possible result. For this it
was taken care in a large extent at the development of
the new version of the Zerobox 103
Details of the enclosure and
crossover improvements clearly demonstrate the new
Zerobox 103's superb sophistication of design and
engineering. The thickness of the cabinet walls, for
example, is strategically varied to prevent longitudinal
or transversal waves from creating unwanted resonance.
Moreover, an ingenious mechanical bracing design greatly
enhances the cabinet's superior stiffness. Then to
further dampen and stabilise the new Zerobox 103,
specially formulated resonate-absorbing materials are
applied to the cabinet's inner walls. The design and
engineering feats do not stop there however. Manger
engineers utilize their proven closed cabinet design (no
reflex port in the lower bass section) to further ensure
against unwanted resonance.
The crossover is critical to any
loudspeaker's performance, including the Zerobox 103.
Taking a cost no object approach, and to fully realise
the unparalleled sonic attributes of the Zerobox 103,
separate high and low pass crossovers, "zero-ohm"
transformer core coils, and the industry's highest
quality capacitors are all that is allowed onboard.
Finally, cross-talk attenuation is a non-issue due to
the superb design and layout of the crossover
No description of a Zerobox
loudspeaker would be complete without mentioning the
very "heart and soul" of its great sonic reproduction
capabilities the world renowned Manger Sound MSW Transducer.
Perfectly framed and supported by a highly engineered
enclosure, the upper section of the Zerobox 103 is home
to three Manger Sound MSW Transducers, which are cleverly
positioned to fully allow this speaker to "strut its stuff".
From its huge, wide open,
holographic soundstage, to its pinpoint precision and
incredible detail, the zerobox 103 is nothing short of
astounding, a music lover's dream come true with seamless
top to bottom consistency, pure, articulate upper bass
and midrange, and airy detailed highs.
And speaking of the future, the
Manger Sound MSW Transducer, with its lightning fast rise
time and super high frequency response, will reign
supreme throughout the next generation of high end audio
SACD and DVD as the #1 choice of audiophiles and home
theatre enthusiasts shopping for new loudspeakers.
Welcome to the next generation.
Experience the new Zerobox-103 and hear the future for yourself.

The ZB 103 and ZB 107 can be
purchased with one Manger MSW drive unit per speaker in the front,
or with three Manger MSW drive units per speaker (one in the front
and one on each side).
The three MSW driver models
are the far superior.
If you purchase a single MSW driver per speaker the
cabinets are only available with cutted holes for the two
side drivers, which are closed with dummy plates; this
allows a cheaper purchase price and the availability to
upgrade at a later date without having to modify the
Why three Manger MSW
The side mounted drivers
create an acoustic baffle, with no omnidirectional
radiation. The front driver is still the main driver,
and the side drivers are switched in serial with a coil,
so that they just support the front driver's radiation
like an infinite baffle. The result is that you can't
recognize the cabinet.
