Eminence Adds Three Advanced High-Power Loudspeakers to the Professional Series.

Impero Series Eminence is proud to introduce three advanced high-power additions to the Professional Series: the Impero 12A, 15A, and 18A. Italian for empire۝, Impero sets the tone for this elite offering of high quality, hand-built loudspeakers. Using high motor strength with balanced Vas and Mms, the Impero series plays extremely loud and low in compact vented designs. Advancements include a 1/2۝ thick by 7.5۝ diameter machined top plate, one piece machined T-yoke, and a 4۝ deep wound fiberglass voice coil. These features combined with an ultra-linear long-excursion suspension and bumped motor assembly allow the Impero series to move serious air, generate serious SPL, while handling tremendous amounts of power. At 1,100 watts continuous / 2,200 watts program power, the 12۝ Impero 12A has a usable frequency range of 56 Hz to 3 kHz, making it perfect for two-way top boxes, full-range two-way boxes, bass guitar boxes, and small subwoofers. The 15۝ Impero 15A is suited for two-way top boxes, full-range two-way and three-way boxes, bass guitar boxes, and small subwoofers, and is rated at 1,200 watt continuous / 2,400 watt program. With a frequency range of 46 Hz to 2 kHz, this 15۝ has the extension at both ends to go low and high, perfect for small vented boxes with conventional sized horns. This model is also available in a 4 ohm version, the Impero 15C. The 18۝ Impero 18A is also rated at 1,200 watt continuous / 2,400 watt program power, has a frequency range of 39 Hz to 820 Hz, and is suited for full-range three-way boxes, bass guitar boxes, and small subwoofers. This model is also available in a 4 ohm version, the Impero 18C. The Impero series has it all while being arguably the most attractive speaker we۪ve designed so far.۝ said Jerry McNutt, Design Engineer at Eminence. Incorporating CNC machined zinc plated motor parts, water resistant treated cones and dust caps, and sanded-edge cast aluminum baskets, it۪s beauty AND the beast.۝ Like all Genuine Eminence branded professional audio and musical instrument loudspeakers, the Impero 12A, 15A and 18A are built by hand in the USA, and are backed by our industry-leading 7-year warranty.
