The DeVille SQ (Superior Quality) is the ultimate DeVille. The entire enclosure is made out of solid Pennsylvania ash, either natural (light color) or torrefied (roasted) in either light, medium or dark. The phase plug is cast from a 3D printed sand mold in solid bronze, then patinated, polished and lacquered. Internal wiring is solid silver, and the crossover components are the finest quality.
Torrefaction is a relatively new process that roasts wood in an oxygen free environment (so it does not catch fire.) Torrefaction removes water and changes organic chemicals inside the wood’s cell structure, resulting in an aged, darkened wood that is more stable and tonally improved. This process is now used by most of the world’s finest guitar makers (Martin, Gibson, Bourgeois for example). Fleetwood Sound uses torrefied ash to produce speakers with superior sound quality that are also more stable in a variety of environments.
An optional tripod floor stand is available in two versions, and black or natural wood finishes.
The DeVille is bottom ported and comes with a base for placement on a stable surface such as a cabinet, table or shelf.
The rear panel of the speaker is fashioned from a solid sheet of phenolic, a composite material chosen for its anti resonant characteristics.
