Good looking pair of Emerald Physics EP4.8 . Great condition. You will
hear everything with these speakers. Includes the upraded tweeters,
carbon fiber drivers, outboard crossovers, and the BOM bass management
system. Easy to drive.

From Emerald Physics website:
new EP4.8 is the baby brother to our top of the line EP2.8.
Essentially, it is the EP2.8 with one instead of two 15" open baffle
Carbon Fiber woofers. Efficiency is 2dB lower at 98dB versus the 100dB
of its larger brother. In addition bass is flat to 26Hz versus the 20Hz
of the EP2.8.
Cutting edge sonic performance establishes a new
level of realism & dimensionality at anywhere near its Internet
Direct cost of only $8495.00 a pair.
Audio Flea summed with:
Emerald Physics EP-4.8 are a pair of must audition speakers for anyone
considering buying a pair of speakers with a budget up to $50,000."
reviews of the older EP4.7 was superb. This new speaker is a major step
up with greater speed and detail as well as 3dB higher efficiency. See review at 10Audio.
Emerald Physics EP4.7 speakers offer an extraordinarily believable 3D
holographic sound stage. They have better than subwoofer-quality bass.
The midrange is the complete package. The upper frequencies have
state-of-the-art resolution. If you are looking for a full range, high
resolution, high-performance speaker then you should hear the Emerald
Physics EP4.7. Even if you are prepared to spend (a LOT) more, the
Emerald Physics EP4.7 offers exemplary performance and destroys all
price-performance ratio benchmarks extant."
"They are keepers. I mailed the check and added them to the reference system."

upgraded EP4.7 is now called the EP4.8. The new Carbon Series EP4.8 is a
state of the art 3-way speaker with 98Db efficiency.
If set up
as single amp, full range network configuration, it is 95dB efficient.
It can then be upgraded in the users home to either bi-amp or tri-amp
operation. In addition to an extra 3dB of efficiency the new EP4.8
offers greater dynamics, improved midrange and bass transparency as well
Our controlled dispersion design means that the speakers are not room dependent and work in all rooms.
new custom designed Emerald Physics Carbon Fiber Series 15" woofer and
12" midrange drivers provide increased speed, transparency and
resolution. Midrange smear is completely eliminated. Compare the EP4.8
to speakers selling for many times their Internet Direct price.
addition to the new Carbon Fiber midrange and woofer the EP4.8 uses our
Emerald Neodymium Polyester-Diaphram compression tweeter and an
improved crossover over the original EP4.7 that it replaces.It is also
wired with Wireworld OCC cable.
The innovation continues in the
Bass range with our unique Aperture Bass Propagation Technology. This
proprietary system is used for the custom Emerald 15" carbon Fiber
dipole woofers. This design increases low frequency power and linearity,
while improving on the speed and articulation of the original CS2 and
older CS2.7. The new Emerald designed 15" carbon Fiber woofer moves 80%
more air than the original CS2.3 and CS2.7 woofers so a single 15 gets
us almost as much bass as the dual 15's of the older models. The new 4.8
also adds our unique Bass Reservoir technology to our Apature Bass
Loading to further improve bass response from previous open baffle
In single amp dress it is 95dB efficient so small amps
(20 watts or better) will work quite well. Once bi-amped or tri-amped
the efficiency goes up to 98dB for even great dynamics. Pick a large amp
for the bass and any amp with over 10 watts for the midrange/highs. Use
an Emerald, 200 watts per channel, EP200.2SE for the bass and our
100wpc EP100.2SE for the midrange/highs for a perfectly sonic matched
package. In addition, the speakers, as they ship in May, will have our
new upgraded Natural Macassar Ebony finish, a nice upgrade over the
black Tricoat of the older speaker.
The optional DSP2.4, DSP2.8
digital electronic crossovers or our Analog BOM improve the sonics even
further by fine tuning the frequency response as well as extending bass
response from 35Hz down to 26Hz.
Does not require bi-amplification.
Can be Single amped, Biamped or Triamped - Can even be Quad amped with a powered subwoofer
Removes the rooms acoustics so they work in all rooms
Emerald Physics 12" Carbon Fiber midrange with cast basket
Emerald Physics Long throw 15” woofer with carbon Fiber Cone and Cast basket
Emerald Physics 1" point source Neodymium Polyester tweeter
World Class sonic performance in a compact package.
Incredible imaging and soundstage reproduction.
Exceptional Class Bass speed and articulation.
Works well in small rooms as close as 3 feet from the rear wall and as close as 1 foot to side wall.
Can be used with small to moderate sized stereo amps or integrated amps
Optional DSP or our analog BOM extends the bass to 26Hz and improves frequency linearity
Outboard 3 way passive crossover which also allows single amp, biamp or triamp operation
BOM analog EQ
