By PSW Staff • April 13, 2017 Beyma's new 18LEX1600Nd 18-inch subwoofer Of all the new products Beyma introduced this year at Frankfurt’s Prolight + Sound, the new 18LEX1600Nd 18-inch subwoofer probably garnered the most attention. Its development has included a mix of artistic design approach with advanced engineering techniques to develop even the frame, which features an optimized design from the mechanical point of view. The new 18LEX1600Nd features long excursion capabilities for high output and low distortion. It is designed for better performance in vented cabinets and loaded horn designs, with an optimized F.E.A. motor structure which features the exclusive Maltcross technology. Another 18-inch subwoofer will be launched this year, joining the WRS family; the new 18WRS600 will offer an optimized design in 3-inch coil, ferrite magnet and pressed steel frame. It will feature the Maltcross technology and has been designed with optimized non-linear behavior with long excursions, allowing the driver to have low distortion. Also featuring the Maltcross patented technology, this year Beyma will launch the new 15MC700 and the new 8MC300Nd. Both models feature an efficient cooling of the voice coil which reduces the power compression losses and also allows a driver to have performance and features similar to larger coil and motor assemblies. Two new 8-inch woofers for a wide range of applications will be available in short; the new 8WR250 and 8WRS250. Both are basically the same driver but one featuring a cast aluminium frame (8WR250) and the other a pressed steel frame (8WRS250). Optimized F.E.A. motor assembly design and Beyma’s MMSS techniques deliver to the new woofers a linear response, low distortion and extended pass band. Two new 4-inch full range transducers join the company’s portfolio, especially designed for column systems and diverse compact designs. With similar characteristics and performance but different motor structure assembly, we introduce the 4FR40, with ferrite magnet system and 4FR40Nd which is the neodymium magnet version. Both allow a wide working range from 100Hz up to 20kHz approximately with a sensitivity around 88 dB. For the high frequency range Beyma introduces two new compact compression drivers with 1-inch coil and 1-inch exit. The new CD1Fe and CD1Nd will be a perfect match for those systems where high performance in compact size is needed.
