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.
Through the tireless efforts of our Relay for Life fundraising team, we are excited to be hosting our first ever Hope Jam concert on Saturday, May 24th at the Kentucky Renaissance Fair in Eminence, KY. All proceeds from this event will go to support Relay for Life.
Headlining this event is JD Shelburne. JD is a country artist that hails from Taylorsville, Kentucky but now calls Nashville his home. He has recently released 2 radio singles “Farmboy” and “Grandma & Garth” nationwide this past year followed by his debut music video for “Farmboy” featuring former University of Kentucky Head Football Coach Joker Phillips on bass guitar.
From the engineers behind the draftsman’s desk to the men and women stamping out cold, hard steel, Eminence is built upon hard work and dedication. This month’s Employee Spotlight shines on Rodney Tingle, someone who exemplifies both of these traits. Paul “Bear” Bryant used to say, “I’m no miracle man. I guarantee nothing but hard work.” Sometimes you need a miracle, but most of the time hard work will suffice. Rodney Tingle is a hard-working and dedicated employee, to say the least.
