The Zen Open Baffle is
completely unique. There is no other speaker like it.
Decware's owner, Steve Deckert, once again demonstrates radical
out-of-the-box engineering! It's an open baffle design featuring
a single full range driver in a tall narrow baffle. It has no
crossover and no other woofers to help out with the bass, yet it has
If you are familiar
with open baffle designs, you already know that to get any bass the
baffle must be wide and the driver low to the floor (and usually
multiple drivers must be used). The Zen Open Baffle, inspired by
some of Tesla's work, uses energy from the main driver to excite low
frequency resonances in a dedicated cavity which in turn produces
harmonically correct bass.
It's quite literally like pulling perfect bass out of thin air with no
woofer, no compression and no cabinet vibrations!
With the full range
driver up high at ear level and in a narrow baffle, reference imaging
and a total disappearing act is achieved - making this speaker qualify
for the axiom "Having your cake and
eating it too!"
With high efficiency, these speakers pack huge rewards with
amplifiers all the way down to 2 watts!
