The Audio Nirvana Classic Series drivers are the choice of discerning audiophiles with exceptionally well prepared listening environments. These drivers will make sure you get the most out of your 'front end' equipment. With a narrow dispersion cone, you need to sit on axis in a well prepared environment for the optimal results. When set up properly, there is truly no comparison. "+" versions of the drivers are also available to provide even more quality and mitigation of the dispersion challenge.

The Audio Nirvana 'Classic 15 ALNICO' ($1099/pr) has a test bench frequency response from 31 hz to 16,000 hz (varies by temperature). You can expect at least 96 db efficiency in any of our cabinets. It handles 50 watts continuous RMS (normal listening level will be about 1/10 watt). Impedance is 8 ohms. Voice coil is 2.0 inches (50 mm). Magnet weight is 2.3 lbs. Total weight is 19 lbs.  The cone is made of paper. The surround is accordion style and made of treated cloth. The dust cap is a specially coated fabric material. The frame is cast aluminum. A separate tweeter is not necessary or desirable. Few people can hear above 14,000 cycles, and there is virtually no music above this, so the upper limits of this speaker are all you will ever need. You might be interested to note, for example, that FM radio is limited to 15,000 hz.  This is the world's best sounding speaker.
