SPECIFICATIONS
Even with advanced test equipment and complex computer analysis, loudspeaker design remains an incomplete science. No measurements currently available can fully convey the sound of a speaker or provide a meaningful comparison between differing designs.
The truth is in the listening.

IMPEDANCE:
7 ohms nominal 4 ohms minimum.
SENSITIVITY:
86dB with 2.83 volts of pink noise input at 1 meter on axis.
RECOMMENDED AMPLIFICATION:
40 to 160 watts per channel into 8 ohms.
FREQUENCY RESPONSE:
29Hz to 29kHz 3dB
32Hz to 21kHz 1.5dB
By FFT step function.
DISPERSION:
29Hz to 16kHz 3dB 30 degrees off axis.
CROSSOVER FREQUENCIES:
600Hz and 5kHz. First-order, 6dB per octave
Dual inputs allow bi-wiring with a single stereo amplifier or
passive vertical bi-amplification with two identical stereo amplifiers.
