The Airmotiv E2+ is an extremely flexible two-way surround sound effects loudspeaker designed to enhance the home theater listening experience. The E2+ can render every detail, from the most dynamic passages to the subtlest of sound effects with accuracy and realism. Feel transported into your favorite movie or concert performance by the E2+’s uncanny ability to recreate a holographic sound field. You can configure each tweeter individually, allowing the E2+ to be used in a bipole, dipole, or reversed dipole configuration. This feature enables the E2+ to be optimized to work in a wide variety of systems and room locations and provides for mirror correct dispersion patterns.
The bipole setting works best in larger rooms, where your surround speakers are several feet from the nearest listener, which delivers the most precise object localization. The dipole and inverted bipole settings often work better in small rooms where listeners are located very close to the surround speakers, creating a more diffused sound field, naturally placed effects, and an experience that is not overwhelming. Experiment with and choose the dispersion pattern that works best with your room and system.
