2-way Passive speaker

The ESD5 is a very high-quality 2-way full-range compact, low-profile passive loudspeaker with performance that defies its size. Delivering exceptional clarity for speech and program reproduction, the ESD5 is perfect for discreet installations and audio-visual presentations where sound quality is paramount, but aesthetic dimensions are of equal importance. The ESD5’s high impedance capability means that up to sixteen units can be run from a single suitable quality stereo amplifier to provide a high-fidelity background program throughout a venue.
