Blue Aran appointed as distributor for Eminence in the UK and Ireland

24th June 2022: We just received our first container shipment direct from the Eminence factory in the USA. This marks the start of a great new collaboration between Blue Aran and Eminence, making Eminence more accessible, and more competitively priced in the UK.

Eminence was the first speaker brand I ever used, back in 1992 when I started building my own speakers. In 1995 when I started Blue Aran, Eminence was the first product I started selling, and using in my own cabinet designs. Over the years I have been a strong supporter of the Eminence Brand, being the first company in the UK to offer Eminence for sale online via our website in 2002. It seems only natural for Blue Aran to be a distributor for Eminence, and we are proud to be representing them in the UK and Ireland.

Custom Crossover Manufacturing

In 2015, Blue Aran acquired the remaining equipment and stock of Convair Electronics, who for many years had been based in Essex and manufactured the Link Dynamics range of passive crossovers. Since then we have been updating and improving the crossover designs, making them much more versatile.

In 2019 we acquired a computerised coil winding machine, allowing us to manufacture high quality air-cored inductors of varying sizes in our workshop. We can make virtually any value (subject to size limitations) with accuracy of up to 0.5%

Our computerised coil winder

We have a range of bobbin sizes (38mm, 50mm and 70mm) and enamelled copper wire from 0.5mm to 1.25mm, this allows us to make most commonly required coils for passive audio filters, from 0.1mH up to 3mH

The current range of PCBs available:

PCB 9003: Standard general purpose board for 2-way 2nd order crossover

PCB 9013: Large format PCB for 2-way 2nd order crossover – will accommodate large 70mm inductors and rectangular laminated steel core inductors.

PCB 9023: Compact PCB for 2-way 2nd order crossover – capacitors have to be stacked vertically if more than one is needed.

PCB 9033 : Standard PCB for 2-way crossover, with 3rd order option on High Pass section

PCB 9002: Standard PCB for high pass filter, 2nd or 3rd order.

PCB 9012: Large format 2nd order high pass filter – will accommodate large 70mm inductors, and rectangular laminated steel core inductors

We also have limited stock of other PCBs, most of which are now obsolete, and are being replaced with new improved versions.

Our standard stock range of crossovers can be found on the Blue Aran Website

Can’t find what you need? Pop us an email and we’ll guide you to the right product.

Need a custom design? If you have already calculated the components you need, and they fit on one of our PCBs, we can manufacture to order, please email us a quote.

Need help with a basic design? Use our online crossover designer.

If you don’t have the circuit design already, we can do this for you, but this is typically a design fee, and a minimum order quantity of 20pcs if you need a custom configuration tailored to a specific driver configuration.
