This minimal compromise design allows the natural life and excitement of the original live performance to be faithfully reproduced. Remember the power requirements of an Effects Speakers is not as high as for Main Speakers and Subwoofers. This speaker is a smaller footprint, non bi-polar version of the larger bi-polar E1, which was originally designed to meet the requirements of the Home Theatre package as ordered by the Sultan of Brunei, hence a speaker of incredible performance was required. The E1, although compact, is too big for use in smaller rooms, or where space is at a premium, yet high quality sound is desired.
Effects speakers usually sound terrible if played as a stereo pair. The drive units were chosen from the best available from around the world for unrivalled speed and accuracy. As a result, a level of transparency comparable to the rest of the range of Osborn Loudspeakers has been achieved. In fact in designing these speakers, several respected competing models were tried. These all sounded awful when asked to reproduce music. The E1 sounds amazing as a stereo pair, with a wide firm soundstage and a sense of weight and authority not found in a speaker of this type.
The speaker can be stand, furniture or wall mounted. Wall mounting is preferable at a height of about 2 meters from the floor, alongside or slightly in front of the listening position, if used as side speakers, or on the rear wall, if used as rear speakers..
The "E2" Effects speaker is effectively an Osborn F1 Speakers in a flatter, more compact cabinet, designed for wall mounting. This is a true Audiophile speaker system which has been adapted to this requirement. This is to ensure that the integrity and purity of the sound emitting from your Osborn Front and Rear Speakers is maintained.
