Divin Sovereign


The flagship product Divin Sovereign sets the ultimate benchmark for high power subwoofers.

The Divin Sovereign subwoofer is the choice for the ultimate sub-bass reproduction. In order to achieve an absolute homogeneous coupling of the membrane surface to the air and therefore the best possible transmission of the membrane movement to the reproduction of air pressure differences, the subwoofer Divin Sovereign is equipped with a custom built Göbel® 18 inch long throw sub bass driver. The design of this Göbel® 18 inch long throw sub bass driver is based on absolute loss less behavior. Hereby any fine detail will be reproduced with maximum precision and dynamic.

The Divin Sovereign subwoofer is a closed chamber design. Therefore it combines from the outset an ideal impulse behavior, the best possible control and therefore the fastest possible bass response.

In order to create a non resonating enclosure without compromises we developed a constraint layer enclosure design with wall thicknesses up to 75mm and massive internal bracings. Hereby any fine sound details will be reproduced with maximum precision and will not be lost through cabinet vibrations.

Additionally, the Göbel® 18 inch long throw sub bass driver is symmetrically arranged in this closed chamber enclosure in order to bring the distortions level to the minimum possible.

The Divin Sovereign subwoofer comes with a build in 2.500 watt amplification as well as with a proprietary and powerful high end DSP engine and control unit made in Germany.

For the best possible user interface to adjust and control all parameters, the Divin Sovereign subwoofer comes with a proprietary WiFi Dongle in order to control and adjust the Divin Sovereign subwoofer with any WiFi devise. You do NOT need any other network units, the Wifi Dongle is creating it's own network. After final adjusting you then can simply remove the Wifi dongle and nobody can mess around with your adjustments.

Reviewer Statements

Jim Clements "hometheaterhifi.com"

"The sound quality was staggering."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"Digital sounded as resolved and easygoing as great analog, the highs remaining pure, the lows resolving to the very depths of the recording -- impressive stuff …"

Marc Mickelson "The Audio Beat"

"I know of no other speaker that plays music with such homogeneity."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"For the first time in show memory I just sat and listened for fun, to cut after cut."

Jonathan Valin "the absolute sound"

"The sound was captivating. The speed and dynamics of this system were mesmerizing."

Steve Marsh "6moons"

"The Lacorde Statement cables are the best cables I have ever heard with my system."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"I was so impressed I went back on Sunday to confirm what I heard, and yes, these just might be the most realistic speakers on the planet!"

"Audiokarma"

The Göbel Epoque with its unique bending wave driver covering a frequency range from 180 Hz to 31.000 Hz sounded detailed and extraordinary coherent."

Peter Breuninger "AVshowrooms"

"Another specialty of the Epoque Fine is its thrilling, yet unspectacular fine dynamics."

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"Yet it's a system which sounded remarkably open, natural and even dynamic with a string quartet piece."

Jason Kennedy "dagogo"

"I returned to this setup over and over again surprised each time by the overall ease and coherency of the Göbel Epoque."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"Simply unbelievable that so much resolution can be accompanied by such strong tonality and such a rich foundation!"

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"The German made Göbel Epoque Aeon Reference Bending Wave loudspeaker proved to be a show stopper."

Clement Perry "StereoTimes"

"The sound image was incredibly fast, with high resolution and to a certain extent simply effortless so that the awesome amount of technology immediately just faded into the background and let the music take over."

Martin Mertens "fairaudio"

"With the Lacorde Statement, you do not have to choose between a huge imaginary space or melodic, refined, yet rich bass response. Here, you absolutely get both!"

Dirk Sommer "Hifistatement"

"Simply the finest sound I have heard by a fair margin in these cable types.“

Dan Worth „hifipig“

"When the Epoque Fine is playing, the enormous homogeneity and the degree of authenticity with which sounds, voices and instruments are displayed is breathtaking.“

Ruud Jonker „Hifi.nl“

"Yes, that is what a true high end system sounds like, visceral and transparent at the same time“

Panagiotis Karavitis „parttimeaudiophile.com“

"The Epoque displayed gorgeous sound with resolution, transparency, a natural timbre and a three-dimensional soundstage with powerful dynamics.“

Key Kim „Stereotimes.com“

"Up to this point, any of the Lacorde Statement cables have definitely left my previous favorites behind by a wide margin.“

Lossless Subwoofer Drivers

In order to get an ideal impulse behavior and therefore the fastest possible bass response, we had to develop an incredibly fast and absolutely linear subwoofer driver for the Divin Sovereign subwoofer. The motor system is optimized to the maximum linearization of the magnet field in both directions of the extremely high excursion area, resulting in the lowest and smoothest possible harmonic distortion spectrum. Furthermore, all materials we use here are of unparalleled quality, making it possible to reach the minimum possible loss factors and the fastest impulse behavior. Only to sum up a few: Glasfiber voice coils, extremely lossless spiders and gaskets, extensive ventilation, extremely rigid paper/carbon fiber membrane, etc.

Ultra Rigid Sandwich Enclosure

The enclosure of the Divin Sovereign subwoofer is an absolute non-compromise design, where all our knowledge about material resonances was applied. Based on our bending wave technology, we certainly know exactly how to manage surface waves on enclosure materials so they don't even start to arise. For the Divin Sovereign subwoofer enclosure we are using a combination of our proprietary constrain layer damping with multilayered tropical room proof materials together with an extreme amount of bracings in order to prevent any resonances. Through this up to 75 mm thick ultra rigid material combination we are also avoiding any energy saving effects. This results in an unbelievably uncolored sound reproduction with tremendous attack and speed in front of an absolute silent background.

Ultra Rigid Sandwich Enclosure

Symmetrical Loaded Closed Chamber Enclosure

For the bass enclosure of our Divin Sovereign subwoofer we developed a special symmetrical closed enclosure alignment in order to further more refine the excellent distortion behavior. Through this symmetrical arrangement, the Göbel® 18 inch long throw sub bass driver is "seeing" a symmetrical load in the back, so the membrane don't wobble even if the excursions are getting bigger. This unsymmetrical wobbling of the membranes is a big reason for rising distortions, as the voice coil hereby is also forced to wobble in the magnet field. We are completely minimizing this effect because of our symmetrical alignment.

Highest End Signal Processing

In order to provide a non compromise solution in signal processing, we implemented the cutting edge DSP technology and a proprietary control software completely made in Germany. Hereby no music information gets lost and is precisely reproduced to the maximum possible precision. Additionally for the best possible user interface to adjust and control all parameters, the Divin Sovereign subwoofer comes with a proprietary WiFi dongle in order to control and adjust the Divin Sovereign subwoofer with any WiFi devise. You do NOT need any other network units, the Wifi dongle is creating it's own network. After final adjusting you then can simply remove the WiFi dongle and nobody can mess around with your adjustments.

Powerful High End Amplifiers

For powering our Divin Sovereign subwoofer we specifically implemented a 2.500 Watt amplifier. This power amplifier is a special adapted Class H type with an extremely low output impedance. Through this, we reach a stunningly high damping factor and hereby the best possible control over the Göbel® 18 inch long throw sub bass driver. Additionally, we hereby also avoid influences through back EMI from the outset. All of this results in a bass reproduction with the best possible impulse behavior and maximum control, that you have never experienced before.
