EV Reference ONE

Michael Kraske developed this model around the idea of a wide-band, closed cabinet speaker. Knowing about the tonal balance and richness that a full-range speaker can reproduce, not willing to accept the lack of bass and presence of high percentage of distortion.

So the paper-cone, symmetrical drive mid-woofer is accompanied by a 1“ tweeter and 12“ long-throw subwoofer. The mid-woofers slices-cone prevents effectively cone breakups, so it is playing from 50Hz and blending over gently to the tweeter creating
a speaker with full-range characteristic - but with punchy bass down to 25 Hz and extended treble smooth as silk. As always with Credo Audio speakers, we achieved linear impedance and a high efficiency (of 87.6 dB), making it an easy load for amplifiers.

"One of my favorites of the show was "House of Stereo" and "AudioShield". Which included the Credo Audio loudspeakers, wonderful 3-way's. We played a stream, "Anette Askvik's Liberty" and I have never ever heard that song this good - and I heard it a million times, both at home and at the shows. It was stunning."
