The American company Eikon Audio has introduced Image.5 – rackmount active two-way speakers with DSP. The combination of Eikontrol DSP control, amplifier, driver and cabinet design allowed the new product to show a lower frequency limit of 32 Hz. Eikon Audio claims Image.5 as a compact, full-range speaker standard.
In addition to the traditional equalizer, the system includes a proprietary Wavelet room acoustics correction. Time delays, according to Eikon Audio, are corrected with microsecond precision.
Active gain works separately for each driver. These are AMT super tweeters and a pair of 5.25-inch low-distortion woofers. The Image.5 bass reflex enclosure is built using an “ultra-inert ceramic-based constrained layer”. The speakers are available in matt white or black.
In the US, the price of the Eikon Audio Image.5 system, including Eikontrol DSP and racks, was $15,000.
