MA (5/15/07) – Outlaw Audio, the leading direct-to-consumer
Internet electronics manufacturer, has introduced its first
full-range loudspeaker, the Outlaw Bookshelf Loudspeaker. Designed
and hand-built in the USA to audiophile-grade performance standards,
it is equally adept for use in high-end two-channel or home
"Since we launched Outlaw eight years ago,
hardly a day has gone by without someone asking us about speakers,"
commented an Outlaw spokesman. "As many of us have a great
amount of experience with loudspeakers, it seemed like a fair
question. However, the reality is that we were hesitant to enter
the highly crowded field of loudspeakers unless we felt we could
offer something truly special at a great price. Well, now we
can do just that – and it gives us great pleasure to introduce
our first loudspeaker."
The Outlaw Bookshelf Loudspeaker features audiophile-grade
crossover components, and high-end drivers. In order to assure
complete sonic compatibility, each loudspeaker will be tested
and matched to within 1⁄2 dB of Outlaw's reference standard.
This ensures that speakers, even if bought at different times,
will be optimally matched to one another for excellent performance.
The Outlaw Loudspeaker's 25 mm (1-inch) silk
dome tweeter is custom designed employing precision Scandinavian
parts, including the copper cap and vented former. The tweeter
is fully video shielded, and includes a bucking magnet to virtually
eliminate stray magnetic forces. It is capable of extremely
linear and clean output up to 22 kHz.
The low frequencies are handled by a long-throw
5-1/4" SEAS woofer for deep, controlled bass extension
down to 54 Hz (+/- 3 dB). In addition the enclosure utilizes
identically dimensioned internal and external port baffle flares
for perfectly balanced pressure equalization, to virtually eliminate
any audible air turbulence. Each Outlaw Bookshelf Loudspeaker
employs two pairs of sturdy five-way binding posts, and is fully
compatible with bi-wire or bi-amplification applications.
A high-frequency adjustment switch allows the
tweeter output to be boosted or lowered by 2 dB to compensate
for acoustically 'live' or 'dead' rooms. Finally, each loudspeaker
employs a proprietary three-position Boundary Compensation switch
to tailor output for placement near walls, corners, or in open
The Outlaw Bookshelf Loudspeaker's furniture-grade
cabinet is constructed of low-resonance MDF with hand-painted
black finish or optional book-matched cherry veneer, and includes
a perforated metal grille. It is currently available exclusively
