Leon Speakers Enters a New Realm of Audio Design With the Introduction of the Leon Seven Series

Milled From Solid Billet Aluminum, New On-Wall Speakers Feature the World's Finest Ribbon Tweeters and Dual Hand-Made Eton HEXACONE 7-Inch Woofers

ANN ARBOR, Mich. ― Aug. 21, 2007 ― Leon Speakers Inc., a world leader in custom, audiophile -grade, on -wall loudspeakers for flat -panel displays, today announced its latest offering, the Leon Seven. Inspired by postmodern industrial design, and infused with the classic lines of the 1920s and 1930s, the Leon Seven redefines custom on -wall audio as Leon enters a new realm of design and engineering.


The Leon Seven utilizes the finest drivers in the world: each cabinet features two hand -made Eton HEXACONE 7 -inch long throw woofers, and the Raven R2 True Ribbon tweeter (with an all -aluminum diaphragm) from Orca. The fourth -order Linkwitz -Riley crossover utilizes purely non -inductive capacitors and solid copper foil air core inductors.

The baffle is milled from 1 -¼ -inch billet aluminum and weighs over 75 lbs. The cabinet is milled from 3/4 -inch billet aluminum reinforced with MDF and internal bracing. This creates a completely new and unique -sounding speaker with no unwanted resonance and vibrations, and an extremely refined tonal quality.

In the elite $15,000 to $20,000 price range, the Leon Seven is the first to offer the performance of an ultra high -end tower speaker in a sleek, on -wall cabinet. The Leon Seven boasts a 40 -kHz to 50 -Hz frequency response and a power rating of 250 W per channel. The speaker cabinet measures 11 inches by 38 inches by six inches, and is fully customizable - the baffle can be anodized in six different colors or painted in Leon's state -of -the -art facility to match virtually any color.

"With our latest offering," said Jeff Gordon, CEO of Leon Speakers, "we challenged our industrial design team to create the most technically superior, high -end on -wall speaker that has ever come out of our factory. We gave them the freedom to find inspiration from any era of design and use any materials they desired. The creation of the Leon Seven conveys the philosophy that anything is possible with on -wall speakers, and that Leon is capable of pushing the creative envelope to the extreme of acoustic and aesthetic design."

A prototype of the Leon Seven will be unveiled at CEDIA Expo 2007 at Leon Speakers' booth #136.
