The woofer is generally the largest driver in the system which covers the bass and mid-range frequency.
The SubBass Activator is an electrical circuit which extends the deepest bass when the music calls for it, reduces the distortion for cleaner sound, increases the dynamic range for greater impact, and uses a self-resetting protection circuit to reduce the chance of damaging the speakers.
The low tweeter is generally the midsize driver in the system which covers the upper mid-range and low treble
The high tweeter is generally the smallest driver in the system which covers the highest frequencies.
The grill is the cloth and frame used to cosmetically conceal the drivers without affecting the sound. Ohm now uses black grills in almost all cases. In the past, brown and brown/black mixes were used; but every ”brown” turned out differently. Now they are all black (except on some current white speakers, we have white as an option).
The crossover is the electrical circuit that protects the tweeters from the low frequency energy that is reproduced by the main drivers. This can only fail, in rare instances, from overdriving the speakers.

The E2 was the last of the E series. It used a vented enclosure and SubBass Activator to extend the deep bass while retaining the natural voice reproduction the E series was known for.
A second (high) tweeter can be added with our D-C kit. This kit includes two 1" cloth dome tweeters (from the C3) with crossovers attached to the back of them. You have to cut a hole (about 3" diameter) with a keyhole or saber saw in the front panel. You remove the old tweeter, run the wires to the new crossover, run the new crossover wires to the old tweeter, reinstall the old tweeter and install the new tweeter. You are back in business with much wider dispersion in the high treble.
Note: Most Ohm upgrades require no specialized knowledge and are easily completed completed by any person. It takes less time to install your own upgrade than it does to package and return ship your speakers to the factory, therefore, we recommend you save time and money by doing this yourself. We ship the upgrade to your door with clear, easy instructions. If for any reason you prefer to have the factory complete your upgrade installation, we will be happy to do this for free, however, you will be responsible for shipping and handling costs each way.
Ohm allows up to $395 for the return of a complete pair of undamaged Ohm E2's toward 25% of the purchase price of new Ohm speakers.
