Product Details

Eminence IMPERO 15C 15" High Power Driver Speaker 4 Ohm 1200W

The Eminence Impero 15C 15" high power pro audio 4 ohm speaker is optimized for use in vented enclosures. Its 1,200 watt continuous power rating is a result of Eminence's extensive experience designing and manufacturing loudspeaker drivers for serious professional use.

This 15" cast frame transducer features a 4" diameter copper voice coil that is wound on a fiberglass former. A large magnet, extended and vented pole piece, bumped back plate, and 1/2" thick x 7-1/2" diameter top plate ensure substantial motor strength, resulting in tremendous bass output.

The Impero 15C's performance is ideal for full-range 4 ohm 2-way top boxes, 2-way boxes over subs, 3-way boxes, bass guitar boxes, and compact subwoofer speaker systems. Recommended enclosure volume: Vented: 53.8 ~ 118.9 liters / 1.9 ~ 4.2 cu. ft.

Reviews

Eminence IMPERO 15C 15" High Power Driver Speaker 4 Ohm 1200W
Eminence IMPERO 15C 15" High Power Driver Speaker 4 Ohm 1200W is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loud and powerfulI needed a speaker that could reliably handle large amounts of power, as my bass rig is powered by a QSC PLX3602 bridged mono for 3.6kW (I am a firm believer in headroom). The B-rig cabinet that I was installing the Empirico into had very limited space, so adding a HF horn wasn't an option. Extended range was one of features that led me to this driver, as the Kilomax speakers don't extend much beyond 800-ish Hz useably.This speaker is very powerful and tight with excellent low-frequency extension, as expected. I was a little disappointed at the lack of hi-mid frequency response (duh) based on the published specs though. Don't get me wrong, it is a GREAT speaker and I would recommend it to anyone that needs the power handling capacity. Otherwise I would recommend the Kappa-Pro speakers for bass guitar as their hi-frequency response is better suited to this purpose.BTW, I own a pro-audio service facility and used to manage a JBL and EV speaker warranty station; that's why I use nothing but Eminence drivers. The reliability and sound is unmatched at double the price, IMHO.
