Description Technical Specs
 

After a 12 year run, the venerable 3.6 steps aside for the new 3.7

The first question on everyone's mind-- "How is the 3.7 different?"

It is easier to start with what is the same. The frame and cosmetics are the same, with one important difference---the additional option of aluminum trim.

The 3.7 is a 3-way design, like the 3.6, but, it is a full-range ribbon design, like the highly acclaimed 1.7. We are calling it "trickle-up" technology. The concepts that worked so well in the 1.7 were incorporated in the 3.7.

The specifications of the 3.7 are nearly the same as the 3.6, with a minor increase in efficiency.

Harry Pearson, the founder of The Absolute Sound magazine has been reviewing Maggies since he began the magazine in the 1970's. Here is Harry's review of the 3.7s--

The introduction of the 3.7 during CES 2011 was very similar to the introduction of the 1.7 during CES 2010. In their show coverage, www.theaudiobeat.com summed up the reaction of many who heard the 3.7 at the Audio Research and Magnepan rooms-- "In terms of high-end audio in early 2011, we don't know of a more important and impressive debut than that of the 3.7."

Editorial on 3.7s and Magnepan's CES demonstration begins in second column of link below. Gary Reber states--

"These are without question the best performance/value in loudspeakers that I have experienced. American-made throughout, these high-resolution, full-range ribbon, planar loudspeakers set a new benchmark for high-fidelity performance in loudspeaker design. No other demonstration at the CES came close to the sonic and spatial realism, and seamless response and time coherence delivered by the Magneplanars!"

In the link below, meet the new president of Magnepan, Mark Winey, to continue the family tradition with the 1.7 and 3.7.

3.7 becomes 3.7i

In past model improvements, driver changes and factory retooling were extensive. It is rare when improvements can be made that are audible in a blind test and do not require a major investment. So, in view of this good fortune, Magnepan chose to pass on these small improvements rather than save them for a 3.8.

Will you be able to hear the difference between the 3.7 and 3.7i? Yes, in a careful A-B test, but Magnepan doesn't do sales hype. It is not a 3.8. And for those that have a 3.7, Magnepan has some good news.

For the first time in thier history, Magnepan is able to upgrade your 3.7s at the factory for a modest $500. (That is what you have come to expect from Magnepan---good value.)

Need more bass?

Put a big speaker in a small room, too much bass. Put a small speaker in big room, too little bass. In general, it is true. There is no one-size-fits-all. In an ideal world, the bass diaphragm would be like an accordion which could be expanded to exactly fit the needs of your acoustical environment.

Magnepan now provides more options for getting the bass and frequency balance just right for your particular room. The relative levels of the bass and tweeter/super-tweeter can be adjusted. If that does not achieve a smooth balance in your room, bass diaphragm area can be added with one or more Maggie Bass Panels. Click on link below for more information.

If you have a high-current amplifieer, adding the Bass Panel is easy and inexpensive. Better bass for those difficult rooms and no subwoofer discontinuity issues.

How to use the DWM Bass Panel

At the risk of offending some advertisers, John Atkinson's "think piece" is very insightful. Magnepan's frugality and high value products are relevant to the needs of consumers in today's fragile economy. John's comments about Magnepan begin in paragraph 7.
