Emininece Speaker Tech Notes

Multiple units exceed published ratings evaluated under EIA 426A specification while tested in a free-air, non-temperature-controlled environment. Multiple compression drivers exceeded published ratings evaluated under EIA-426A or AES specification while mounted on Eminence’s H290, H290S, or H2EA horn in a non-temperature-controlled environment.

Eminence Speaker frequency response curves are an average of multiple units measured while applying 1W/1m into the speakers’ nominal impedance (e.g. 2.83V/8Ω, 4V/16Ω, etc.).  All speakers are measured in a temperature controlled environment using monthly calibrated LMS software with supplied 0.25" microphone mounted on axis 1m distance from baffle.  2 ft. x 2 ft. baffle is flush with anechoic wall and speaker is rear mounted against a thin steel ring for minimum diffraction.  Measurements performed using monthly calibrated Yamaha P3500S amplifier and a 2700 cubic foot anechoic chamber with custom made fiberglass surface treatments.  Measurements below 200Hz are tail corrected to compensate for chamber volume.  Compression drivers measured using a 2ft x 2ft baffle flush with anechoic wall and horn front mounted.

Please note

BETA 8CX, 10CX and 12CX are coaxial speakers with tweeter sold separately. The data for these coaxial woofers was calculated with the ASD:1001 driver screwed into the woofer, but not active.
