Air Flow Driver. Urban Fidelity™ speakers are truly unique in the world of affordable audio - and not just in aesthetics. Our Air Flow Driver is designed to work in the open air without the constraints of a pressboard box. By sending sound both forward and backward, the speaker mimics live music, creating an incredibly lifelike presentation and huge soundstage.
The Air Flow driver features a double cone design to produce the high frequencies, thus eliminating the need for a separate tweeter and the sound-degrading crossover. Using one high-quality driver -- rather than multiple cheaper separate drivers -- produces a sound that is far more accurate, nuanced and complete. You'll hear details in your music you've never heard before.
By liberating the driver from a pressboard box, the Air Flow driver delivers fast and smooth bass that's integrated with the rest of the frequency like it's meant to be. Typical affordable speakers use a ported box to create the bass, resulting in booming low frequencies that aren't in sync with the rest of the music.
Toxin-Free Construction. Traditional budget speakers are some of the most ecologically toxic products in electronics, made with cheap pressboard or chipboard using formaldehyde and vinyl. Urban Fidelity™ speakers are one of the most -- if not the most -- ecologically sound speakers available. We use only formaldehyde-free wood, and our paints and inks are water-based and free from harmful chemicals.
Ultra Quality Printing. Our super high resolution eight color printing is the same used for gallery-grade prints and photographs, ensuring the final image is beautiful and stays beautiful for years to come.
Easy Setup for Stereo or Home Theater. Our speakers are designed to work just like any other traditional speaker. Whether you have an all-in-one home theater or component stereo system, simply take out your old speakers and replace them with ours. Urban Fidelity™ speakers can be powered by as little as 8 watts so any receiver/amplifier will make the speakers sing. Want to get into the wide world of hi-fi? We’ll help recommend components. Turntables and tube amps? Absolutely.
Crafted in Los Angeles. Urban Fidelity™ speakers will be assembled/printed/hugged at our Los Angeles offices by the Urban Fidelity™ team. Our Air Flow drivers are designed in-house and manufactured for us by an experienced US company. Our wood is responsibly sourced from North American forests and manufactured in Los Angeles.
Only by making our speakers locally can we be truly obsessive about quality.
Passive (non-amplified). Urban Fidelity™ Speakers, like almost all home speakers that aren't boomboxes or Bluetooth devices, are "passive" -- aka without an amplifier. Passive speakers allow for more flexibility of installation and setup. Any receiver or amplifier at Best Buy or an audio store will work. You can also create a 4-channel home theater system by using two pairs of Urban Fidelity™ speakers with a multi-channel receiver.
