"The Enterprise’s svelte elegance allows for greater "Significant Other Acceptance Factor" than any other floor standing speaker I have ever used. Believe me when I say that pictures do not begin to tell the story of the Enterprise’s aesthetic charms."
Paul Cervantes, Ultralinear.net.*
"Cabinet construction is superb...this is some of the finest cabinet work I've seen...."

The Enterprise uses the same crossover components, drivers, wiring, and cabinet as the Enterprise SE, however the transmission lines of the Enterprise are vented through the bottom of the speaker cabinet. Because the transmission lines are vented through the bottom of the cabinet, the Enterprise requires clearance between the bottom of the cabinet and the floor and cannot be used without the outriggers shown. The Enterprise is available in satin black, satin black and red birch, or a custom cream white finish.
How can the Enterprise image as well as it does and at the same time deliver incredibly extended bass?
