MSilence TWARON Unicorn's Tail Sound Damping
TWARON Unicorn Hair is a speaker cabinet filler for acoustic damping which is produced by Thüringisches Institut für Textil- und Kunststoff-Forschung (TITK), Germany, exclusively for MUNDORF.
Unicorn Hair is predominantly made from TWARON fibres in form of user-friendly extremely thin fibre strings. Its long fibres support especially well the absorbtion and damping of the lower audio frequency range (less than 1 kHz) in subwoofers and long transmission line tube-cabinets. This gives you an audible difference, today TWARON Unicorn Hair is an essential "must" for many well-known developers and manufacturers of high-end speakers.
For loudspeaker application the extremely thin TWARON fibres are combed and processed into an extremely dense Unicorn Hair tail. In contrast to other plastic fibres, TWARON allows heat generated vibrations to be taken away, which means that it absorbs motion energy in an entirely different manner than conventional materials used for damping. Owing to the endless fibres strings used in TWARON Unicorn Hair, the effective functional frequency-range is lower in comparison with the TWARON Angel Hair. It constitutes a significantly better alternative to the damping materials which are otherwise used in transmission line systems. In short, TWARON Unicorn Hair results in a very direct and tight bass reproduction in (sub-) bass cabinets, and in transmission-line tubes. The low-frequency resonances are attenuated so efficiently that an extremely deep and clean bass reproduction is achieved.
The frequency / damping performance diagram below shows how the low and medium audio frequency range can be adjusted very easily with the correct quantity of Unicorn´s Tail filling.
