Okay, so what do aircraft and speakers have to do with each other? The visual inspiration for Aviator comes from the history of flight for the last century and Chario’s heritage of making products from massive sections of solid walnut. Even the name of every Aviator model comes from the name of an important pilot or the concept of flight.
We’re highlighting the Aviator name to point out the similarities between aeronautics and speaker design. Both apply engineering solutions to the same problems: strength, flexibility, shape, control of moving parts, how they affect the air around them, and how they work in a given environment to name just a few. Design is not just what it looks and feels like, design is also how it works.
