In the title compound, 2C14H18O5Br 2·OH3+·Br3 -, the two 15-crown-5 macrocylic rings are linked by an oxonium cation via O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a positively charged unsymmetrical sandwich-like compound with a tribromide counter-anion. The conformations of the two crown-5 fragments have gauche C-C and and C-O linkages.
