When you’re a speaker fanatic, it’s one thing to get a little carried away. It’s quite another to make something from scratch.
What came out of the vision of Patrick Casabuena aka Local Sun and his friends is a Hi-Fi sound system that could easily be described as “typically Filipino.” Fatima Sound is their brand of handmade speakers that combines distinctive Philippine raw materials with top-of-the-line sound engineering. The Jacinta is their first floor-standing statement piece, and it is available in two sizes: standard and large.
There are three speakers in each unit: a 12″ subwoofer, a horn-loaded midrange, and a horn-loaded tweeter. The woofer, in conjunction with the unit’s front port that is integrated into the body, produces excellent bass output and extension at 40Hz. The midrange and tweeter horns, which have a frequency range of up to 20kHz, produce a more expansive and realistic sound. After working closely with a team of Filipino craftsmen and furniture makers, led by Marcial Gajo, the drivers were housed and sealed in PH Agusan Marine Plywood. The tweeter and woofer were protected by a woven grill made of 12” solihiya rattan, which is ideal for indoor use but should be covered when used outside.
The Jacinta isn’t short on electric intricacy, thanks to the collaboration of Fatima Sound founders and local sound maestro Noly Dy, who is also responsible for other custom-made speakers in the country, including the central pieces of listening room/selector space, OTO — a place that inspired Casabuena to create his own speakers in the first place.
The ideal team is unquestionably required for Hi-Fi artistry, and the young team behind Fatima Sound has taken their time and is tirelessly learning the tools of the trade while also collaborating with hardened virtuosos in order to achieve their goals.
