ESD15 - 3-way Passive speaker

The new ESD15 incorporates a unique coaxial 15" transducer with a 1.75" Nitride Titanium Neodymium Compression Driver on a wide dispersion 80 x 60 degree horn. Whilst most coaxial speakers will try to cover the full frequency response, the ESD15’s coaxial driver only covers bass and highs leaving the all important mid-range to a 6" neodymium speaker mounted on a large 80 x 60 degree horn. This resolves the issue of the 15" driver trying and failing to reproduce mid-range, a common problem with conventional coaxial designs. The ESD15’s unique design provides extremely flat, full range reproduction from a compact yet powerful package that out performs speakers twice its size, weight and price.
