We are Eminence
Eminence is pleased to announce industry veteran Damon Waller as European Sales Manager.
Waller brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise from his previous positions at Trace Elliot, where he eventually served as International Sales Manager, and Orange Amplification, where he worked his way up through the company to the position of Managing Director. In 2006 Damon oversaw the launch of the Orange Tiny Terror, the amp that changed the face of the electric guitar amplification and was voted ‘the number one most important Guitar product of the past 30 years’ in 2014 by Music Radar. His background in international sales, brand marketing and positioning, sourcing, and product conception make him the ideal choice to carry the Eminence brand forward in Europe.
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.
PF-350 Paul Franklin Signature
Offering complete tonal balance from top to bottom, this attack-sensitive and powerful 12” model was co-developed with veteran session and touring pedal steeler Paul Franklin. With headroom to spare, the PF-350’s tone transfers from low volume to very loud with warmth and clarity, making it ideal for pedal steel and 6-stringers alike.
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.

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.
