Careful acoustic design and the use of advanced materials contribute to the exceptional music fidelity and speech intelligibility exhibited by the EAW Commercial SMS4 (black) and SMS4W (white) two-way speaker systems.

The low-frequency drivers carbon fiber diaphragm remains extremely rigid at high power levels, producing a more linear response and lower distortion. The cone is fitted with a durable foam surround and treated to resist moisture. The high-frequency section features a constant directivity horn with a built-in mechanical phase equalizer. The horn is driven by a Ferrofluid cooled, 0.5 mylar dome tweeter.

The system is nominally crossed over at 4 kHz by a 12 dB/octave network, which uses markedly lower (than conventional) inductance values in series with the woofer. This design reduces sound delays associated with high inductance values and provides excellent low frequency transient response. The high-pass section is corrected for optimum performance of the CD horn and is protected with a circuit based on a low-value/low-mass filament resistor that smoothly limits the power sent to the tweeter driver.

All components are housed in a vented enclosure formed from semi-expanded polystyrene foam that is extremely strong, lightweight and weather resistant. Threaded metal sockets are molded into the cabinet to facilitate quick, safe deployment of the SMS4, as a single unit or in arrays, using specially designed accessory mounting hardware.

The SMS4 is a part of EAW Commercials SMS Series Surface Mount Speakers, which includes two-way constant directivity, compact speakers in easily installed enclosures.
