All Emergence models share the same satellite component thus providing an upgrade path through changing out the amp component. The Emergence Satellites are very much based on functional acoustic requirements. The reflector device that sits atop the design is dimensioned appropriately to convert the imperfect acoustics of the 2 inch aluminium dome full range driver into a pure diffusion in the 1400 Hz to 20,000 Hz frequency range. This band of mid and high frequencies is enough to give a wonderful holographic sound stage to music and performance.
Below 1400 Hz the satellites’ full range driver provides clean crisp omnidirectional sound down to 250Hz where it is crossed over to the bass amp unit. The discus shape of the base of the Emergence satellites contains a controlled volume of air to allow the full range driver to work down to low acoustic frequencies and the surface provides a baffle to control the projection of acoustic energy into the reflector irrespective of on what surface it is placed.
