Empor 2016 is a two way floorstanding speaker.

Empor 2016 is a bass-reflex cabinet loudspeaker with drivers of Omnes Audio].

The kit provides a tweeter and two woofers. As tweeter an Omnes Audio T25 H is used. As woofer Omnes Audio LoCo 6.1 are used.

Empor 2016 is developed by Thorsten Fischer.

The crossover consists of a 3rd order high-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope) for the tweeter. The woofers are connected to a 3rd order low-pass filter (18 dB per octave slope).

Between 50 Hz and 20000 Hz the frequency response of this loudspeaker is linear. The decay spectrum is above 2000 Hz nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0.5% above 400 Hz and below 0,5% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Our kit consists of

  • Omnes Audio T25 H
  • 2x Omnes Audio LoCo 6.1
  • Bass reflex tube HP70, 68x160 mm, black
  • 2x Damping Sonofil 100 x 35 cm for 20 litres
  • Terminal T105 Au, with brass, gold plated
  • 2m Speaker cable 2x1.5 mm2, transparent
  • 0,5x Pan screws 3.5x17 black, 8 pieces
  • 1,5x Pan screws 4x20 black, 8 pieces

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 129,00 excl. VAT: € 108.40 / $ 124.66

Kit with high-end crossover

The high-end kit is delivered with baked varnish air core coils for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. All capacitors are of type MKP or MKT.

Kit with high-end-crossover without cabinet, price per speaker   EUR 153,00 excl. VAT: € 128.57 / $ 147.86

Impedance correction

If you want to use a valve amplifier with this speaker an impedance correction should be employed. In this case the component quality is less important; therefore, we offer only one kit (upon request higher quality components are available).


Price per impedance correction for one speaker, to be mounted on a small wooden board.     EUR 9,15 excl. VAT: € 7.69 / $ 8.84

universal PCBs

If you prefer to mount the crossover components on a 159 x 127 mm universal PCB instead on wood:
Universal PCB RA160, order no.. I-2766, price per unit:   EUR 5,10 excl. VAT: € 4.29 / $ 4.93
We recommend one board per kit (two boards for a speaker pair)
