EMOTIVA AIRMOTIVE B1 BOOKSHELF SPEAKER

Emotiva

Airmotiv B1 is a two way, bookshelf monitor loudspeaker, featuring a 32mm Airmotiv folded ribbon tweeter and a 5-1/4” woven fiber woofer. A pair of Airmotiv B1 monitors can be used in a small, high-quality two-channel system, of a set of five or seven can be used in a high quality surround sound system for a small room installation. Another option would be to use a pair of Airmotiv B1 monitors for your front left and right speakers, and combine them with Airmotiv E1’s for your surrounds, with or without an additional Airmotiv E1 as a wall mounted center channel speaker.

  • All of the members of the Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family combine meticulous design, extensive testing, and in-depth listening tests with a wide variety of musical material, to deliver the best possible technical performance and sound quality. Airmotiv™ high-frequency transducers deliver flat frequency response, low distortion, virtually nonexistent signal compression, smooth off-axis response, superb transparency, and uncanny imaging. Advanced woven fiber midrange drivers deliver smooth frequency response, and detailed lifelike midrange with very low coloration, and woofers include high-temperature voice coils and vented pole pieces to ensure crisp bass at all listening levels. Carefully designed precision crossovers, crafted with audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations, tie it all together. And, finally, our custom cabinets are crafted from thick, heavily braced, acoustically inert HDF to ensure maximum rigidity and resistance to stray vibration, with a front panel machined from a solid slab of 25mm HDF. The faceted front panel design, borrowed from our studio monitors, not only adds a stylishly futuristic look to our Airmotiv speakers, but also serves a very practical purpose – to minimize diffraction effects and room interactions.

    Airmotiv Sound Quality

    Of course, the goal of all that design and testing is to produce a speaker that sounds really great and, after extensive listening tests, we’re pleased to report that Airmotiv Passive Loudspeakers sound truly superb with all types of music – from individual vocalists and intimate jazz ensembles, to full classical orchestras, to heavy metal bands and synthetic electronica. Just pair your Airmotiv Loudspeakers with any high-quality power amplifier (we think ours sound especially good), and you’ll get perfectly balanced sound, with outstanding clarity, and superb rendition of even the finest details. All of the speakers in the Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family are carefully timbre matched to work well together and to deliver a cohesive audio image in any stereo or surround sound installation.
