Hmmm. Not sure about this design which is often hailed as “art”, maybe it would grow on me if I had $155,000 to spend on speakers. Yep. You read that right. $155K for a pair of Oma Imperia Speakers. Designed by David D’Imperio and built in Pennsylvania out of black walnut, cherry, or ash wood. To give you an idea of the scale; they are five feet deep and over seven feet tall. Did I mention they cost $155,000?
The Imperia is a four way horn system, with a vertical array of conical horns covering 100hz to 20khz, and two rear loaded subwoofer horns using a massive 21″ neodymium woofer handling 20hz-100hz. This special OMA sub is 104db 1w/1m and is powered by its own solid state amplifier. The system as a whole is extremely efficient at 105db 1w/1m, and is entirely time aligned.
