General:
These are original vintage units, not current reproductions as you'll likely find on the internet.

Perfect for getting a bit more sparkle out of your vintage speakers, or for your next dream build.

"Invented by the noted physicist and scientist, Dr. Oskar Heil, the ESS Heil Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter uses a folded pleated Mylar diaphragm just 0.0005" thick. Its voice coil is a serpentine pattern of precision-etched aluminum, selected for minimal weight and high power handling.

Unlike a normal piston loudspeaker that excites the air by alternately pushing and pulling a cone or dome, the Heil AMT Air Motion Transformer linearly squeezes and expands its diaphragm's pleats, moving the airload at a very high velocity. Because the moving mass of the Air Motion Transformer is extremely low and the magnetic structure very powerful, this combination results in extremely high acceleration that yields amazing transients."

Testing Process:
Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.

After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
