MADE IN USA

 




This is our medium sized Zen Master Series Open Baffle Loudspeaker!

It's the result of several prototypes that were created to capture the performance of the larger ZF15L in a more manageable size. 
Zen Master Series speakers are 100% solid hardwood.

Zen Master Series Loudspeakers


ZF15M, shown in Cherry.


These wonderful speakers use the same model F15 full-range driver as our larger Master Series baffle. They are 100dB 1w/1m and require only 2 DECWARE watts in most rooms.

The Zen Master Series open baffles can take you deeper inside the music than anything we've ever made because we've never made anything that was 100dB with one watt before using only a single driver... it's a game changer!

Due to the wide shape, these speakers have great midrange balance and incredible projection adding a tactile experience to the sound that you won't be expecting.



Steve Deckert / DECWARE.

If you choose to have yours built with two different woods, the price is determined by the more expensive of the two and your invoice will be manually adjusted and sent to you by email.

Some woods can be stained.  For example, Poplar can be stained to look like Cherry... the green in the wood turns reddish brown and the grains are very similar. 





THE F15 DRIVER






The F15 full range speaker unit is hand made in small quantities by Lii Audio who also offers the drivers to the D.I.Y. enthusiasts wishing to build their own speakers.





SHIPPING

These speakers ship by UPS. Shipping is free in the continental USA.



Please allow about 12 weeks for your speakers to be built and another week for shipping.

Burn-in track.  If you've ever wondered what the speakers sound like with zero burn-in, we made a video of it on some thumpy electronic music.

All of the above videos were made with our 2 watt per channel Zen Triode Amplifier and recorded with a Tascam DSD recorder in 24/96 resolution for headphones. My using headphones you can hear what the speakers sound like in our listening room.
