"The Omen's have wildly exceeded my expectations. Initially my plan was to have the Omen's in a second system. After a week of breaking them in it became apparent they were a very special speaker. I ended up selling my main speakers which were Stereophile B rated speakers featuring tweeter, midrange and three woofers in each tower.
The dynamics and integration of the Omen's is amazing. In the present system they have a fair bit of power going in. Bryston 4B SST amplifier bench tested at 324 watts into 8 ohms per channel. The old speakers went down to 18Hz and while the Omen's don't go that low there seems to be much more bass than the advertised 35Hz. I listen to all kinds of music and the Omen's have been great. Especially noteworthy was the Omen's on some Japanese mono Kink's Pye reissues." -Bob Fifik

Zu Omen Technologies Old & New
Omen, like all Zu products, is built around the critical human voice (A1, 55Hz, through A6 and all the possible harmonics, to approximately 10kHz). Serving this critical region of tone is Zu's 4th generation (standard motor) 10" paper coned full-range driver. And despite what many audio snobs might think about it based on price, Omen is a true, state-of-the-art loudspeaker.
Third Generation Zu-Griewe Acoustic Loading
Zu-Griewe cabinet loading applies to loudspeaker design and acoustics a principle developed for motorcycle engine exhaust systems for improving power output through pulse and pressure management within an increased bandwidth (wider power band).
Zu260FRD/G4 Full-Range 10" Driver
This is Zu's proven 10" [26cm] full-range driver, with the addition of the high frequency diffusion detail in the face of the pole piece extension. This "phase plug" is a carry over from the research and testing we did with Essence, which gives Omen a more linear management of high frequencies and broader dispersion from the directly coupled to voice coil inner cone.
Colors & Finish
Zu Omen is hand finished using a dyes and pigments over real wood veneers for a deep rich three dimensional look. The competition at this price looks awful, like some kinda vinyl wrap impressed with wood grain. Not Omen, they look stunning!
Tips On Getting Great Sound From Omen
Omen has been designed to account for its shorter stature. Placing its full-range 10" driver on top and then time-aligning the super tweeter to "tilt" the sound in a slight upward direction allows Omen to sound larger and taller than it is. Users can also adjust the feet in the Omen to lean the face of the speaker back further tailoring the sound and loudspeakers integration with the room.
