Fleetwood Sound Company by OMA
Continuing OMA's work creating the world's best horn loaded, high efficiency loudspeakers, Fleetwood Sound now offers the same quality in a smaller, affordable package. The DeVille uses the same ultra high quality, fully professional drivers as our larger, more expensive OMA loudspeakers.
Use a six inch thick, solid wood conical horn made from thermally modified (torrefied) Pennsylvania ash wood. Like OMA, the wood on our speakers is treated with hand rubbed beeswax and natural linseed oil for a heirloom finish. The rear panel of the speaker is fashioned from a solid sheet of phenolic, a composite material chosen for its anti resonant characteristics.
The DeVille is the highest efficiency speaker possible in its size range, at approx. 94db/1w/1m at 8ohms and easy to drive with virtually any amplifier. It is bottom ported and available with short legs or a variety of stands in either black baltic birch or solid Pennsylvania ash with a natural finish.
Because the DeVille uses a naturally constant directivity conical horn, finding the right place in a room is easy. The 3D printed high tech bronze alloy phase plug in the center of the horn further improves high frequency performance and dispersion. You don't have the beaming problem as with all conventional dome tweeters.
The DeVille uses true professional transducers, guaranteeing ultra low distortion into the 110-115db range.
The DeVille comes in standard black with natural, solid wood horn, top and bottom, also offered in a wide range of finishes, including fabrics such as denim, leather, cork, Farrow and Ball paints from England.
