Up for sell Omega Super 8 with 8" Alnico magnet drivers, this are unique speakers with 8" full range hemp drivers with Alnico magnets. The enclosures are made with bitch ply, the drivers feature aluminum baskets, and the drives are held in place with brass machine screws. Single driver speakers are the most coherent design available which means your music will sound exactly as the artist intended! Super 8s are not shouty in the midrange as some other single drive speakers are. In addition to being coherent, these speakers are dynamic, palpable and image with precision, with 93 db sensitively they can also be used with low powered tube and solid state amps. They play louder than the fore mentioned speakers as well!

Just a word about Alnico magnets, they were used in the 1940?s, 50?s, 60?s and 70?s by JBL, Altec Lansing and Tannoy to name a few. There use was only discontinued in the late 1970?s due to strikes in Alnico mines. Omega has worked for 2 years to bring these magnets back. The drives are made with equipment that is 40 years old. Why go to all this trouble!? Well, because Alnico has a sound signature very similar to tubes. Alnico magnets will tend to round off a sound wave at their limit, a kind of soft clipping in a sense. The effort and these drivers speak for themselves!

The matching stands are also included in this sale.

Drivers:

Omega Speaker Systems takes pride in being the first to recognize the superior performance of Hemp as a cone material. This is why we incorporate Hemp fiber in all of our proprietary full range drivers. Omega Speaker Systems is the first to offer a full line of OEM Hemp cone full range exclusively designed by Omega and built in the U.S.A. All Hempcones are the Patented A Brown Soun formula.

Benefits

? Longer fiber than paper. The is the heart of the ?Hemp Tone?
? Far less cone breakup & distortion than any other fiber cone
? Higher resolution and see through transparency
? A very easy load for partnering amplifiers.
? No passive components are used in the signal path.
? Designed for low and high volume level.
? Full Range 8? driver
? Dual cone incorporating a broad whizzer cone with rolled edge
? One-piece whizzer/dustcap assembly
? Smoother high frequency transition @ 9KHz
? Cast basket with very open frame.
? Basket incorporates venting to keep motor cool
? Treated and pleated accordion fabric surround
? Felt diffraction ring
? Alnico Magnet
? 25mm voice coil

Cabinets:

A Loudspeaker?s cabinet is the heart of the Speaker System. This is most important in a single driver speaker system where cabinet design is critical. Since Omega Speaker Systems use absolutely no electronic passive components at all, we rely on mechanical means to ensure the finest musical reproduction. Omega Speaker Systems ensures a direct signal path from your amplifier.

? Proprietary alignments and cabinet design
? Omega cabinets are ported or sealed designs
? All cabinets are manufactured in house
? All cabinets have triple layer construction
? Only softwood MDF is used for the core
? Euro Baltic birch multiply
? Phenolic sheet
? All three layers are cold pressed using PVA adhesive
? Most cabinets include an inner layer of R compound
? Damping is rebond foam
? All cabinets incorporate ladder bracing
? We exclusively use Precision Ports
? Grills are magnetized and included

Cabinet finishes are the finest available. Veneering is cold pressed using PVA throughout. Veneering is postformed using traditional clamps and cauls. Absolutely no Contact Cement is used. Contact Cement is an adhesive that will result in glue failure over time and has a soft glue line. PVA will not delaminate and with its hard glue line will also wrap the cabinet tight, much better than any clear coat or paint. In addition all cabinets have 3 PVA glue lines. Since cabinets are postformed (veneered after the cabinet is built) all edges are hand chamfered, filed and faceted. All cabinets are veneered and finished on all sides.

Specifications:

? Bass Reflex with 3" rear precision flared port
? 3-layer composite baffle and back: 3/4" Ultralight MDF (for top, bottom, and sides),
? 6mm Finland Birch ply, an extra layer of phenolic under the veneer, and ladder bracing

Adding JPS Audio Lab Ultraconnect 2 @7000 only with this deal, 1.5M perfect match with Omega's, purchased in 2015, I think I paid around 21000. I thing this addition will make a significant difference to the performance of the speakers.
