Open Baffle Speaker System
Ultra Plus
The Ultra Plus! member of the Manzanita family is a high value, full range, medium  efficiency, passive crossover Open Baffle speaker system.



The primary objectives for the
Ultra Plus!: 

"Retain the cost effective, high performance aspects of the low cost Ultra, but with improved efficiency, dynamics and power handling".   We determined a cost effective way to meet our objectives is to use a pair of vertically mounted 15" woofers, on a wide baffle - shallow depth, straight wing structure. 

For the Mid & upper frequencies, we choose a Seas high performance 8" full range.

Continuing with our "cost effective" objective, the Ultra Plus! passive crossover uses only 5 carefully selected components.  Components of a quality level rarely seen at a Ultra Plus! price point. Completing the Ultra Plus! design is a medium weight, stylish, yet ridged resonate free baffle structure. 

Ultra Plus!
is VERY easy to set up and enjoy!!  All you need to is connect  your pair of Ultra Plus! to any stereo amplifier capable of delivering at least 15 watts RMS per channel into a 4-8 ohm load.  Ultra Plus! loves tube amplification with an impedance that remains above 4.5 ohms and very shallow phase angles! 

Place your Ultra Plus! speakers in an appropriate room location 36"- 40" from a rear wall and not less than 26" from side walls.  Space your Ultra Plus! speakers apart by a typical 6' - 12' and you are ready to enjoy life like music reproduction!  No multiple amplifiers, sub woofer(s), active crossovers, special contour boxes to purchase or install!  No extra wires, cables and power cords required!  Easy!  Simple!
  
The Ultra Plus! delivers!  Deep, pitch perfect bass.  Seamless midrange and open, airy top end.  Excellent soundstage depth and width!   Intimate vocal reproduction. You will be amazed by the Ultra Plus! dynamics and ability to disappear while providing hours of fatigue free musical enjoyment!
