The EOS 2 Enclosure is designed to have several functions incorporated:
The front baffle is designed to aid the drivers in obtaining a smooth dispersion regardless of frequency, which yields a very uniform energy output, as well as a more stable soundstage.
The “Stealth” exterior design both functions as an efficient diffusor of standing waves in the area around the speakers, but more importantly it eliminates standing waves and resonances inside the enclosure.
Internally it consists of the new proprietary Gryphon “Line porting”, which is a special way of “tunnel-damping” the rear sound of the Mid-Woofer towards the Ports.
This ensures a direct path for the low frequencies to reach the port, while providing an efficient damping of frequencies above the 60-80 Hz region, resulting in a very fast and clean Bass reproduction, without disturbing artefacts from the upper frequencies.
By providing a choice between using a rear-OR front- firing port, The EOS 2 is very flexible and will work very well in both small and medium sized rooms.
The EOS 2 is fitted with 2 Drive units, a 7.5” (190mm) Mid-Woofer and a 1.34” (34mm) Large-Dome Beryllium Tweeter.
The Mid-Woofer is fitted with a powerful neodymium magnet which saturates the iron parts completely, resulting in a magnet-system with no compression. The cone is made of pure Thin-Ply Carbon fiber, (TPCD), resulting in one of the stiffest cones available today while also delivering a good inner damping resulting in a clean, fast and break-up free reproduction. This driver has no sound of its own therefore, the perfect match to the Beryllium Tweeter.
The Impulse optimizer ring, is positioned straight above the voice-coil hereby strengthening the bond between cone and voice-coil, resulting in unparalleled Impulse reproduction as well as a pure piston behavior well beyond its designated area of reproduction.
The Tweeter has a large Beryllium Dome, ensuring unparalleled dynamic reproduction while maintaining a very high bandwidth and extremely low distortion. We have created a large rear chamber implemented with a special damping that increases in steps, ensuring both a resonance free environment as well as the ability to reach quite low frequencies.
Our precisely shaped waveguide further enhances its dispersion as well as linearity.
The crossover is the heart of the EOS 2 performance. Its unique technology, handles much more than just separation of the frequencies sent to each driver:
The Progressive Rounded Slope technology creates roll-off slopes that start with a very soft roll-off, ensuring perfect overlap and blending between the drivers. The slopes then become progressively steeper, effectively removing the out of band distortion from the drivers.
The crossover also aligns the phase response of the two drivers at all frequencies (measured from the listening position) thereby reproducing a life- like soundstage in width, height, and depth.
Both drivers are connected in positive polarity and their impulse responses are aligned perfectly. This means that musical timing is reproduced without any smearing or shifts – retaining the original musicality found in the recording.
