Enterprise‘s are quite similar to the smaller Planets, the main differences being the slightly larger cabinet (83 x 30 x 20 cm), a different omnidirectional diffusion system and a bigger woofer. Instead of the two chromed spheres we saw on top of the Planets, we now have a strange framethat resembles the Enterprise starship of the famous Star Trek saga.
The 17 cm woofer (15 cm on the Planets) has a paper membrane (instead of kevlar), a rubber surround and a big (10 cm) ferrite magnet, while the basket is die-cast aluminum. The woofer is loaded into a bass reflex enclosure, with a bottom (base) firing port. In order to keep this reflex port reasonably far from the floor the cabinet makes use of 4 chromed feet. Again, the binding posts are located at the bottom of the cabinet, close to the reflex port. The crossover network is glued right behind the binding posts plate and is claimed to use a linear phase scheme.
The sensitivity is 87 dB/w/m, higher than that of the Planets (85 dB!). The frequency response extends several Hertz’s below the Planets response which was measured at 30 Hz (@ -3dB!). Nominal impedance is 4 Ohm.
The cabinet is made out of reasonably thick MDF panels, with several internal reinforcements and damping sheets. Internal cabling is the usual figure-8 2 mm2 red/black cable, directly soldered to the woofer terminals and connected via fast-on’s to the tweeter terminals.
The cabinet are available in many lively colors.
