The DIY Community asked for a well priced coaxial speaker that not only excelled at surround sound, but would also work better for home audio front speakers. I spoke with Eminence and asked if they could make us a custom model similar to their Beta-8cx but with a couple changes including a stiff light weight darker cone, a suspension with a bit more X-Max and a larger spider. After some prototype samples were tested we had our new coaxial for the Volt-8 LX Edition. The crossover was then designed to give a smoother response that would lend itself to better performance in front speakers. Of course they still make exceptional surround sound speakers in the angled enclosures on this page.
The Denovo DNA-150 compression driver (tweeter) is installed on the back and fires through a small waveguide in the center of the woofer giving you point source sound and great off axis response. The LX Edition does quite well in small ported enclosures between .5cuft when used with a subwoofer. More information will be coming on the ported design.
