EMOTIVA Airmotiv B2+ Bookshelf Loudspeakers (Pair)


The Airmotiv B2+ is a two way monitor loudspeaker, equally at home on a sturdy bookcase or stand, featuring a 32 mm Airmotiv folded ribbon tweeter and a 6-1/2 inch woven fiber woofer. The Airmotiv B2+ is ideal for use in a small, high-quality two-channel system, and has plenty of low frequency output to sound great in a small room without the need for a subwoofer. The Airmotiv B2+ also works well as a surround speaker in a home theater system where you prefer not to use wall-mounted speakers.


Your speakers are the single most important component in your audio system; they’re the part that turns a simple electrical signal into the emotional experience that is music. Great speakers can transform an audio system that’s merely good into one that can deliver a truly transcendent listening experience. Emotiva’s new Airmotiv passive loudspeakers represent the culmination of years of research and experience in producing both home and professional loudspeakers, and were designed from the ground up with this critical mission in mind. They were designed from the start to be equally at home in an audiophile stereo system or a high-end home theater, and combine excellent technical performance, superb sound quality, elegant good looks, and excellent value. Emotiva’s design philosophy is simple: If a speaker can reproduce the entire audible spectrum, as accurately as possible, with very little distortion or coloration, then it will sound good – whether you’re playing classical music, rock, or your favorite blockbuster movie.


All of the members of their Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family combine meticulous design, extensive testing, and in-depth listening tests with a wide variety of musical material, to deliver the best possible technical performance and sound quality. Emotiva’s Airmotiv™ high-frequency transducers deliver flat frequency response, low distortion, virtually nonexistent signal compression, smooth off-axis response, superb transparency, and uncanny imaging. Advanced woven fiber midrange drivers deliver smooth frequency response, and detailed lifelike midrange with very low coloration, and their woofers include high-temperature voice coils and vented pole pieces to ensure crisp bass at all listening levels. Carefully designed precision crossovers, crafted with audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations, tie it all together. And, finally, their custom cabinets are crafted from thick, heavily braced, acoustically inert HDF to ensure maximum rigidity and resistance to stray vibration, with a front panel machined from a solid slab of 25mm HDF. The faceted front panel design, borrowed from their studio monitors, not only adds a stylishly futuristic look to their Airmotiv speakers, but also serves a very practical purpose – to minimize diffraction effects and room interactions.


Of course, the goal of all that design and testing is to produce a speaker that sounds really great and, after extensive listening tests, They are pleased to report that their new Airmotiv Passive Loudspeakers sound truly superb with all types of music – from individual vocalists and intimate jazz ensembles, to full classical orchestras, to heavy metal bands and synthetic electronica. Just pair your Airmotiv Loudspeakers with any high-quality power amplifier, and you’ll get perfectly balanced sound, with outstanding clarity, and superb rendition of even the finest details. All of the speakers in the Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker family are carefully timbre matched to work well together and to deliver a cohesive audio image in any stereo or surround sound installation. The B2+ features an updated crossover that offers smoother midrange performance. (The new models are still perfectly timbre matched with the original Airmotiv Passive Loudspeaker models and will harmonize perfectly if used alongside them.)


Phenomenal sound quality and great specs alone don’t make a great speaker, which is why Emotiva have included a long list of practical and convenient operational features on their Airmotiv Loudspeakers. The front bezel is finished with multiple coats of attractive satin finish black lacquer, which looks elegant while resisting fingerprints and scratches, and the sides are covered with tough, good-looking textured black vinyl. And, for those of you who prefer to keep their technology under wraps, all of Emotiva’s new Airmotiv speakers include removable, magnetically-attached, grilles.
