Eminence is proud to announce the following new Pro Audio and Musical Instrument Loudspeakers and HF products for 2014. See all of these new models at the 2014 Winter NAMM Show booth 4334 in Anaheim, CA, January 23-26.
Delta Pro 12-450A
Eminence takes the weight out, but leaves the performance in with the addition of a lighter weight version of their popular Delta Pro 12A, the Delta Pro 12-450A.
Utilizing a 56 oz. ferrite magnet, the 375 watt Delta Pro 12-450A is recommended as a woofer or mid/bass in vented enclosures, and also makes a perfect replacement in many portable PA cabinets. The Delta Pro 12-450A also features a 2.5” voice coil and a usable frequency range of 44 Hz to 4.0 kHz.
“For smaller PA cabinets, choosing the right loudspeaker will often come down to weight.” said Tom James, Eminence Product Design Manager. “While our popular Delta Pro 12 works well in many of these designs, we realized the 80 oz. magnet made the overall weight heavier than desired. The Delta Pro 12-450A still delivers exceptional performance, but with a significant weight savings.”
Kappa Pro 10LF
Eminence’s Kappa Pro series reaches a new low with the Kappa Pro 10LF, a low frequency enhanced version of their popular Kappa Pro 10.
With the low frequency content of modern music demanding more from the low end than in the past, the Kappa Pro 10LF excels with its high-BL, strong twin-reinforced cone, and high excursion suspension. Its high power handling capability (600 watts continuous, 1200 watts music program power) and its parameter set allow it to work in very compact vented or horn loaded bass guitar or subwoofer enclosures.
“This 10” will help end users meet the demand for tons of low bass while taking up just a tiny amount of space.” said Jerry McNutt, Design Engineer at Eminence. “The 105 oz. ceramic magnet allows it to offer these outstanding attributes at a very reasonable price point.”
LA10850, LA12850 and LA15850
Eminence packs a lot of power into tight spaces with the addition of three high power, shallow cast frame Professional Series models designed to give you high output in tight fitting horn loaded applications.
At a mere 4.5” deep, the LA10850 is a 10” high power midrange driver featuring a 3” voice coil, powerful ceramic motor assembly, and inverted dust cap for close placement to phase plugs used in many horn loaded designs. Rated at 350 watts, the LA10850 can also be used in small conventional vented enclosures when you need a high power mid/bass driver, or in very compact sealed enclosures when a true high power midrange driver is needed.
Providing clean low mids and tight punchy bass, the 800 watt 12” LA12850’s shallow cast frame and T/S parameter set will allow it to work in ultra-compact vented systems and allow very tight packaging in line arrays or other systems where overall depth is limited. Measuring less than 5” deep, the LA12850’s super stiff paper cone is driven by a 4” voice coil and a powerful vented ceramic motor assembly. “The LA12850 can be horn loaded in designs without close fitting phase plugs as the LA12850’s cap is not inverted.” said Jerry McNutt, Design Engineer at Eminence. “Not a problem for most modern bass horn designs.”
The LA15850 is Eminence’s most compact 15” cast frame Professional Series model. At only 5.5” deep, the LA15850 can also be used in small conventional vented enclosures when you need a great high power mid/bass driver.
“These LA models are the shallowest depth, high power models in our entire product line.” said McNutt. “They’re designed to help you fit it into very tight spaces like in line array boxes.”
Kappa Pro 15B
Our popular Kappa Pro 15 model is now available in 16 ohm, and is recommended for professional audio in a vented mid-bass or bass enclosure, and is also suitable for bass guitar.
Kappa Pro 15LFC
A 4 ohm version of our Kappa Pro 15LF-2, the Kappa Pro 15LFC is a long throw, low frequency woofer recommended for pro audio in a vented bass enclosure.
Featuring a hemp cone, 1” voice coil and lightweight 15 oz. ceramic magnet, the 4 ohm 620H offers 20 watts of warm, full, and clean tone that will make a small, thin amp sound bigger and fatter.
“The 620H is the little brother to the 8” 820H we introduced last year.” said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. “The 620H sounds cleaner, warmer and fatter, with better definition than any stock 6.5” speaker you will find. A perfect upgrade to just about any small amp on the market, particularly a Fender Champion 600.”
A new addition to the Red Coat™ Series of guitar speakers is the British-voiced 12” CV-75.
Featuring a British cone, 1.75” voice coil and 56 oz. magnet, the CV-75 offers complete tonal balance – grunt and punch in the lows, warm/tailored mids, and nice, clear, open/airy highs. The name says it all: Ceramic magnet, offering Vintage tone, rated at 75 watts.
“We’re very excited about this new speaker because we’ve been working on perfecting it for over 10 years.” said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. “Many of our OEM customers have been asking for something that could improve upon what hand-made British speakers from 20 to 30 years ago used to sound like. We’re extremely pleased with the result.”
A new addition to our popular Legend™ Series of guitar speakers is the 12”, 200 watt Legend EM12.
As the name suggests, the Legend™ Series offers classic tones from the past that have been utilized and made popular by many Eminence OEM amplifier customers since 1966. Featuring a 2.5” voice coil, 80 oz. ceramic magnet, and die-cast aluminum basket, the Legend EM12 features ultra-clean tone with big, round, punchy lows and warm, smooth mids and highs.
“We’ve received a lot of calls over the years from guitar players looking for a 12” high-powered speaker that can deliver ultra-clean tone.” said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. “Our Delta Pro 12A from our Professional Series was the only thing we had to offer until now. Unlike the Delta Pro, the Legend EM12 is optimized specifically for guitar players, and offers a more neutral tone so you can hear more of your amp and guitar.”
Also new to the Legend™ Series is the 12”, 75 watt British-voiced Legend 1275.
As the name suggests, the Legend™ Series offers classic tones from the past that have been utilized and made popular by many Eminence OEM amplifier customers since 1966. Featuring a British cone, 1.5” voice coil and 34 oz. ceramic magnet, the Legend 1275 offers tight, punchy lows, warm mids, and crisp, articulate, open highs.
“Often times we’re asked what speaker from our line is equivalent to a custom OEM design in this amp, or that amp.” said Anthony Lucas, Eminence tech support specialist. “With the Legend 1275, we wanted to offer something that combined the best tonal qualities from several of these most highly sought-after amp tones.”
Following the successful collaborative effort on the Eric Johnson Signature EJ1250 guitar speaker, Eminence Speaker and amp guru George Alessandro have teamed up once again to develop a 12” guitar speaker with vintage sounds circa 1964, the GA-SC64.
Well-balanced from top to bottom, the GA-SC64’s warm, dynamic character lends itself to vintage amps as well as modern gain and distortion. The traditional build materials offer warmth, dynamics, low note articulation and proper distorted harmonic content layering.
“The early 1960’s was a time when things were simpler. Studios were recording with one or two analog tape tracks. Stereo records were high tech, and hum canceling pickups were still awaiting a patent.” said George Alessandro, President, Alessandro High-End Products. “The warm, full character of the GA-SC64 brings you back to those days when used in vintage amps. While many things have advanced in 50 years, the tone of 1964 still rings true with this unique guitar speaker.”
