External changes are quite significant – AudioSolutions Figaro MK 2 began to look much more modern. At the same time, the proportions of the speaker cabinets remained the same.

Despite the fact that the first generation AudioSolutions Figaro were truly revolutionary speakers, over the five years of their production, the developers have collected enough information about what could be improved. All this was implemented in the AudioSolutions Figaro MK2.

One of the most anticipated upgrades was the studded outrigger system at the base of the column. The acoustic system has not only become more stable, but the contact area with the supporting surface has also been minimized.

Crossovers have been significantly upgraded in the new model. For windings of inductors with air cores, conductors of a larger cross section were used. In addition, a new PCB layout has been developed, resulting in even shorter signal paths. The AudioSolutions Figaro MK2 continues to use the quality WBT Next-Gen screw terminals.

The most significant update concerns the speaker cabinet design. In the first generation Figaro, the manufacturer used a self-locking cabinet ( Self-Locking cabinet ), first used in the AudioSolutions Overture MK2 model in 2015.

The AudioSolutions Figaro MK2 case is an evolution of this solution, first implemented in the Virtuoso series in 2019. AudioSolutions called this cabinet Cabinet-In-a-Cabinet (CIC) .
