Snell Acoustics E-II Vintage Tower Loudspeakers
Snell Acoustics made great speakers right down the road from us in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Snell Acoustics were founded in 1976 by Peter Snell to develop a speaker that "disappeared" sonically; providing the listener with uncolored and pure music. Snell's approach combined excellent quality drivers sourced from Europe, and hand-built, hand-matched crossovers to ensure those drivers were performing at Peter's highest possible standards. Peter Snell personally matched each pair of speakers to a "Reference" pair in his listening room, at a time before computer simulation and analysis!
The Snell Type E-II carries on Peter Snell's tradition of excellence, with a simple 2-way crossover augmented by a rear-firing 3/4" poly dome tweeter to add airiness and depth to the listening experience. The rear-firing bass port allows for greater bass extension without adding port noise to the listener's immediate sound stage. These speakers have been rebuilt, with new adjustable risers, crossover caps, tweeter diaphragms, tweeter ferrofluid, rear tweeters, and woofers. They are ready to last another 40 years.
Demos are available at our Lawrence, MA showroom with COVID precautions in place.
