OEM Omega Drivers

While driver design and driver quality are big factors in any speaker system, when it comes to single driver loudspeakers they are far more important.

That's why I allocate a significant amount of my time and resources to researching, developing and testing new driver designs.

Fortunately the work has paid off: Omega's current generation of proprietary drivers are by far the best I've ever offered. And they play a major role in delivering the lifelike sound you'll enjoy when listening to any of my single-driver speakers.

Omega Driver Benefits:

Omega's drivers are high sensitivity (ranging from 93 to 95dB SPL); In most rooms you can achieve realistic listening volumes with only a few watts of power.

The cone material is light and rigid OmegaFiberCone, which translates into:

  1. Quicker transient response.
  2. Higher resolution and "see through" transparency.
  3. More lifelike tone and overtones.
  4. Linear balance throughout the frequency spectrum.


Omega's drivers are 8 ohm loads and present your amp with a linear impedance curve, making them an easy load for any amp to drive.

Omega's drivers perform equally well at both low and high volume listening levels.

Omega's proprietary drivers are specifically designed and crafted to work with my proprietary cabinet designs to deliver a level of sonic performance well beyond anything you would expect at their respective price points.

Alnico Magnets

When I first heard the Alnico (magnet) sound in a driver, I knew it was for me. Now some upper-end Omega single-driver loudspeakers use Alnico magnets in their drivers.

Alnico is an acronym referring to alloys which are composed primarily of aluminum (symbol Al), nickel (symbol Ni) and cobalt (symbol Co), hence al-ni-co. For comparisons sake, 99% of dynamic drivers used in home audio utilize ferrite magnets.

For a speaker designer, Alnico drivers are MUCH more expensive compared to their ferrite counterparts. But there is no question in my mind, Omega's proprietary Alnico drivers produce the sound and tone I strive for, so they are now used exclusively in some of my upper-end models.

Compared to ferrite magnet counterparts, the sound produced by Omega Alnico drivers:

Is better balanced and more linear across the frequency spectrum.

Has better texture and layering.

Offers higher resolution (especially noticeable in the mid-bass area, with instruments like standup bass and kick-drums.
