Enigma speaker photos.




These are very good, with tight, deep bass, nice, non-fatiguing detail and great imaging. There seems to be an infinite number of terrific canadian 2 way 8 inch ported speakers.

You're right. Canadian 8" ported two ways are usually good sounding speakers when designed at NRC facilities.

Energy speakers, now owned by Klipsch were designed at NRC.
Enigma speakers were designed and manufactured by Vic Lipton who owned Star Audio on Avenue Road in Toronto from the 1960's to the 1980's. The speakers, woofers and tweeters are from Audax in France. The woofer is either 6.5" or 8: in diameter. The tweeter is either 1" or 1.3 wide (midrange).
The Audax site denotes the box size for the woofers, 0.7 cu, ft for the 6.5" woofer and 1.7 cu. ft for the 8" woofer. They are also ported.
Sound is just as good as the Energy Pro-22's. I have a pair of Enigma Minx with the 1.3" and 8"The components today are worth over $400 USD\ a pair.
