ES-290 Biradial Horn

Introduction

The ES-290 Biradial Horn is a direct competitor to the classic Yuichi A-290.  The ES-290 takes all that's great about the much loved A-290 and improves many aspects to it's overall performance.
ES-290 Flare Geometry 

A-290 Flare Geometry 

The complete wrap-around geometry drastically reduces edge diffraction off the horn mouth.  This improves time domain performance such as spectral burst decay for lower noise floor, improved high frequency detail retrieval, and off-axis performance. 

No Throat Adapter

The traditional throat adapter from round to square has been eliminated.  This transition now occurs over the entire depth of the horn which provides a very smooth physical transition.  Also, the horn throat angle is matched to the compression driver for a smooth transition between driver and horn. 

No Dispersion Fins 

Superior off-axis performance is achieved by virtue of the ES Flare geometry eliminating the need for dispersion fins. 

Construction 

  • Stacked layers of 18mm Baltic Birch Plywood
  • CNC Machined for Precision 
  • Clear Satin Stain 

Specifications 

  • Good loading down to 260HZ
  • ES Horn Flare Geometry
  • 2" Throat
  • Cost is per PAIR 
  • Funds in CAD currency
  • $4,500.00 CAD per PAIR 

Suggested Driver

We suggest using the new B&C DCX464 Coaxial Compression Driver with this horn.  This is an exciting new product from B&C with impeccable measured performance.  The DCX464 uses a 1.4" diameter throat which is great news for Audiophile applications which require wide dispersion in the treble.  Currently the DCX464 retails for $723 CAD each. (price may vary) 

Turn-key speaker build...

The ES-290 can be incorporated into a turn-key build as shown in the picture below.  Various bass cabinet and crossover configurations are available. The crossover can be fully passive, active 3-way with either fully analogue circuitry or using DSP. The fully active analogue solution uses a high quality Linkwitz-Riley crossover, Constant Voltage, 4th order, 24dB/Octave.
