Yorkville recently debuted the U15, a fullrange enclosure designthat combines Unity Summation Aperture Horn Technology with anext-generation 15-inch neodymium woofer. The U15 provideshigh/mid-frequency distribution from the 60ºx60º hornassembly that produces frequencies from 300 Hz to 20 kHz. Unity horntechnology combines a single 1.75-inch diaphragm compression driverwith three 5-inch ceramic magnet midrange drivers on a single highlyefficient conical horn. All four-component drivers are mounted in aUnity horn measure and act like a single point source.
