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, ceiling mounted, non bi-polar version of the larger bi-polar E1, which was originally designed to meet the requirements of the Home Theater package as ordered by the Sultan of Brunei, hence a speaker of incredible performance was required. The Roof Speaker is perfect 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 for the Roof Speaker were chosen from the best available from around the world for unrivaled 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 Roof Speaker 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.
A hole the size of the speaker box is cut in the ceiling, and the wide collar spreads the weight evenly on the plaster and the front of the speaker is flush with the roof, so only the grill protrudes below the ceiling 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.
