We are Eminence
Through their 25 years relationship with European distributor Adam Hall, Eminence has become a globally recognized brand known for high quality USA made loudspeakers and high frequency devices. Now, with the recent appointment of Damon Waller as European Sales Manager, Eminence will greatly enhance their ability to develop custom audio solutions for the many highly regarded OEM manufacturers there.
“By having Damon working hand-in-hand along with Adam Hall, we are better positioned to grow the Eminence brand.” said Chris Rose, President, Eminence Speaker. “Adam Hall continues to do a fantastic job distributing our branded product line. Their in-depth technical knowledge and unrivaled customer service are what make them one of the fastest growing distributors in the industry. With Damon’s new role we will be able to work directly with OEM manufacturers when a truly customized product is needed.”
Eminence is proud to introduce the following high quality pro audio and musical instrument products for 2017.
N151M-8 Ring Radiator
Despite its minute size, the 1” exit N151M-8 ring radiator compression driver delivers monumental performance. Weighing in at a mere 1.7 lbs., the N151M-8 utilizes a phase plug design that improves the distribution of forces over the diaphragm surface, which results in a driver with lower distortion, smoother frequency response, and increased sensitivity as compared to conventional ring radiator designs.
Eminence has greatly expanded their custom design capabilities to include modifying stock models for end users. Services include building alternate impedances of existing models, and a guitar speaker break-in service.
Eminence is pleased to announce the company has become ISO 14001 certified.
An ISO 14001 environmental management system is a systematic and process driven approach to controlling those aspects of a business that have a significant impact on the environment.
We’re very grateful to our friends at Sensey Electronics, our new exclusive distributor in Mexico.

Eminence is proud to announce the following new Pro Audio and Musical Instrument Loudspeakers for 2016. See all of these new models at the 2016 Winter NAMM Show booth 4334 in Anaheim, CA, January 21-24.
Building on our heritage of providing high quality products at a great value, Eminence has set a new standard in compression driver performance with the introduction of two new lightweight neodymium models: the 1.4” exit N314T-8 and 2” exit N320T-8.
Their 3” titanium diaphragms feature a geodesic rib pattern for increased stiffness, while their polymer surrounds utilize their new D3™ technology (Damped Diametric Drive) to provide a smooth, clean, and extended response while still allowing a low crossover point.
Eminence is pleased to announce industry veteran Jerry McNutt has been promoted to Product Design Manager. Two additional promotions within the Engineering department include Matt Marcum to the position of Senior Design Engineer, and Anthony Lucas to the position of Design Engineer.
Ed Catmull, President of Pixar Animation and Disney Animation, is no stranger to problem solving. In his newest book “Creativity, Inc.” he describes how Pixar is able to produce such great movies. Problem solving is a huge part of that. He says, “The responsibility for finding and fixing problems should be assigned to every employee, from the most senior manager to the lowliest new hire.” Here at Eminence, we’ve got some great thinkers and problem solvers, not the least of which is Paul Woodcox.
Persistence is not letting inclement weather keep you from taking a hike through the mountains. Stubbornness is refusing to take an umbrella. There is a fine line between those two things; persistence and stubbornness. In fact, the line is so thin that it is hard for a person to self-declare that they are one or the other. We usually need others to tell us.
Lisa Willhite finds herself in a position here at Eminence where she often needs to be persistent. Stubbornness would certainly not do. But she often has to see things through and make sure that they are correct. She often has to be the communicator for various departments and people. When problems arise in production, they often call for Lisa.
