Signature S15 vs. S15E

Hello from Germany.

Today i bought a pair of S15 speakers.
The salesman said that the „E“ Variant is for the „europe“ market and has a different driver installed instead of the normal S15.

There was also a „Normal“ S15 in the showroom for a speacial price because this was a Demonstration pair and there were no packaging anymore.
So i decided to take the „E“ Model for more cash.

After unboxing at home i realize that the bought Modell is NOT the „E“- Modell.
(On the speaker Terminal back is „S15“ printed Not „S15E“

So the question is: what are the differences between these models?
Should i swap or refund.....? Or can i go with this?!

Main use is for Home Cinema (Back Speakers)

Many Thanks.

    I'd take it back, difference from what I can tell is the finish not the driver's.

    USA site has them listed as walnut, black and brown. the Euro site has them as just black and white.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

  • Thank you for your reply.
    I don ´t know but it seems that there are only e-Models on the market in all countries.
    I Skipped to and there are the „e“ Models marked as „new“. At the German Site also.
    I guess the „E“ could stand for „Enhanced“ for example and seems to be a tec. New Version.
    But as mentioned before i Don ´t know for shure...

    The "E" stands for Europe.

    From what I have been able to find it appears only the white colored version carries the "E" on the model identification likely because the white version is only available in Europe while the black version is available there and the USA.

    The driver is exactly the same on all versions.
