Eminence Introduces Flux Density Modulation Technology

Anaheim, CA (January 14, 2010) -- Eminence Speaker LLC, the industry leader in guitar speaker design, proudly introduces Flux Density Modulation (FDM) Technology, a revolutionary tonal breakthrough for guitar players everywhere. Born from a heritage of quality, tone and innovation, the patent pending FDM Technology from Eminence offers control of output level, associated distortion, and tonal balance via a simple control knob on the back of the speaker.

Since electric guitars first hit the stages of entertainment venues cranking out Blues and Rockn- Roll, guitarists have struggled to maintain a balance of the saturated, overdriven tone of a great tube amplifier and a reasonable stage volume. “The dilemma has spawned the development of isolation chambers, isolation boxes, electronic attenuators and a host of other compromises that just don’t lend the same tone and feel as a good high-power tube amp cranked up to 10.” said Eminence Speaker LLC President, Chris Rose. “Eminence is proud to present what could be the most notable development in guitar loudspeaker technology in decades.”

Eminence engineers have collaborated to introduce a simple, affordable, yet revolutionary technology to mechanically manipulate the flux path and relative densities within a loudspeaker motor structure. The result is a patent-pending innovation lending guitarists the ability to achieve high power amplifier tone at lower volumes simply with the turn of a dial on the back of the speaker. “Using a speaker without attenuation circuits or other gadgets to facilitate amplifier distortion is the most logical engineering solution to an age old problem.” said Tom James, Design Engineer at Eminence. “Our method maintains fidelity in the signal path that can otherwise be compromised. The ability to adjust a speaker’s output in this manner simplifies life for today’s musician playing varied styles in a spectrum of venues.”

This revolutionary, all-analog technology puts a new twist on guitar tone. Just turn the modulator knob to adjust speaker output and amplifier interaction, helping you find that sweet spot of saturated tube tone but at a significantly lower volume. Tweak the knob for a wide range of tones: More attenuation affords a warmer tone while less attenuation restores volume and brightness. It’s like switching amps in the middle of the set. You get real attenuation without losing the “feel” of playing through a speaker. No pedals or expensive electronics – just a speaker, from Eminence. Available in both the Patriot® and Red Coat® lines of Eminence guitar speakers, the Maverick and ReignMaker models each put tonal control at your fingertips.

Spaceman effects tend to be cherished, treasured, and, in some cases, driven to insane resale market prices because they reliably sound fantastic. But Spaceman pedals are also rare creatures. And even its most popular pedals tend to come and go—often disappearing before real players can beat collectors to the punch. The analog, 6-stage optical Explorer phaser, however, is the unusual Spaceman pedal that is reappearing in the wild after a hiatus. It returns in a more compact enclosure. But this time out the Explorer offers access to six additional waveforms that build on an already expansive modulation vocabulary.
