Upgrading the balanced armature speakers:
We used Balanced Armature Single - Full Range Driver to design our first prototype
One of the advantages of balanced armature is that it removes a lot of the moving parts. Unlike dynamic and regular speakers, balanced armature speakers do not require air to operate, and thus can be tuned very precisely since external air is not a factor, allowing you to hear all the details in the music.
With the single balanced armature driver the bass is warm but by combining several balanced armatures together you get a deep heartbeat bass sound quality that makes you want to dance. We will be upgrading our driver from single to 2-way balanced armature driver.
2-way balanced armature speaker: With multiple speakers you get a more precise sound reproduction,giving you a similar concert hall sound experience. Each driver is tuned for a specific range of music; one driver will handle the high frequency sound and the other will take the mid/low range sound.
We are a diverse, young and energetic team with various backgrounds, ranging from engineering, business to design. Of course, we are also proudly Canadian!

Risks and challenges
Like any product-development endeavor, there are inherent risks and challenges, and we understand the importance of pre-planning in order to mitigate risks.
At ALTO, we have identified some of the key challenges (technical, logistics, procurement, scheduling) and outlined potential solutions for each. We address these challenges through preparation, up-front analysis, as well as the deployment of the right personnel and tools. We have extensively analyzed components and materials, and validated availability of suppliers that will deliver the quality we demand. We also have a very effective model and cost structure for development costs after the campaign, as managing costs will be crucial for delivering results. Lastly, we developed a reasonable timeline with thorough preparation and set deadlines we can realistically meet without leaving you disappointed with delays.
Any pledge will bring us closer to make Alto reality. with your help we can change the your listening experience!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
