JAF Bombard is an evolution of the basic model of floor standing Bassoon loudspeaker. The principal differences lie in the use of a higher class of transducers, the crossover filter components, internal wiring and terminals.

JAF Bombard represents an acoustic system in open, non-resonant technology with asymmetrical dipole nature of sound propagation, in which the radiation of rear side cone is obtained by a slit in enclosure. The SFR technology (Smooth Frequency Response) allows to obtain a low frequency range and high efficiency. The loudspeakers has compact dimensions retaining the equivalent of 840cm baffle width.

In the Bombard model, four full-range transducers work with a diameter of 21cm and magnetostatic ribbon tweeter. There are appiled broadband drivers with stiff and ultra-light cone made of high density plant fiber with a mass of 7.8g. The advantages are a proper pulse answer and the correct transients reproduction.

Bombard loudspeakers are equipped with Room Gain Control module. This solution allows to adjust the range of the bass , enables exact tuning the loudspeakers to size of the room. In addition, independent adjustment of each loudspeaker makes possible to adjust the stereo balance of medium and high tones. Such need may appear in case of the asymmetry of: the room, placement of diffraction or damping elements and uneven of channels in other devices.

Single gold plated speaker terminals are located on the plinth. This allows to use shorter speaker cables laid directly on the floor and ensures safe operation. The standard internal wiring is made of a high quality oxygen free copper with an area of ​​4mm2 cross section. The essential components of the crossover is a high conductivity toroidal coils and high pulse current carrying capability film capacitors.

The mechanical design is based on materials from MDF and natural wood. Front wall, upper and base are made from the varnished MDF plate. The material on the side walls is a solid wood of Merbau, Acajou or Oak kind, coated with wax-oil that protects the surface. Finishes provides matt effect. Side panels with a thickness of 35mm ensure the stability of a narrow slit along the loudspeaker. The loudspeaker stands on the spikes. Three support points ensure even distribution of weight, without the necessary of the adjustment.

Bombard name comes from the folk musical instrument, whose roots go back to Brittany. Bombard belongs to a family of woodwind instruments. Bombard name is also used for organbuilding, defined as the pipes of the reeds family stops.
