    In virtually all modern loudspeaker systems, the enclosure contains some or all of the driver elements that comprise the system, and it separates the rear radiation of one or more cone-type drivers from their front radiation. It may also limit the rear radiation of horns and compression drivers to avoid acoustical energy returning back towards the stage. Why separate front cone radiation from rear radiation? When a cone driver moves forward it provides positive pressure to the atmosphere, exhibiting excursion.… View this story

    Celestion has announced the launch of the CDX07-1075, a new 3/4-inch exit, neodymium magnet compression driver, and it will be on display at the upcoming 2015 NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center, booth 4674. With a 0.75-inch copper clad aluminium voice coil driving a polyimide diaphragm, the device is rated to deliver 15 watts (rms) power handling and 109 dB sensitivity across a frequency range of 1,500 to 18,000 Hz. Recommended minimum crossover frequency (at 12 dB/octave) is 2.5… View this story

    Eminence has introduced two new lightweight neodymium compression drivers: the 1.4-inch-exit N314T-8 and 2-inch-exit N320T-8. and they’ll be on display at the upcoming 2015 NAMM Show in Anaheim (booth 4334). Both models have 3-inch titanium diaphragms with a geodesic rib pattern for increased stiffness, while the polymer surrounds proprietary new D3 (Damped Diametric Drive) technology to provide a smooth, clean, and extended response while still allowing a low crossover point. “Think of putting your finger on a bell,” explains senior… View this story

    Eighteen Sound will present the new ND4015Ti2 high-frequency neodymium compression driver to the U.S. market at the upcoming InfoComm show in Las Vegas, booth C12211. The 4-inch compression driver is the result of extensive experience with its predecessors in the ND4015 line. It’s outfitted with a next-generation titanium diaphragm that provides higher sensitivity and extended high-frequency performance, resulting in enhanced HF clarity. The ND4015Ti2 has a 4-inch edgewood aluminum voice coil and 1.5-inch throat exit 4-slot phase plug, and is… View this story

    The latest member of the RCF ART Series of loudspeakers—the new 2-way, active ART 745-A—is outfitted with a 4-inch voice coil compression driver joined by a 15-inch woofer (with 3.5-inch voice coil). The newly engineered ND 940 compression driver is further bolstered by a neodymium magnet structure, and it feeds a 90- x 60-degree (h x v) constant directivity horn. The driver/horn combination fosters a crossover point of 650 Hz, meaning that almost all of the vocal range is handled… View this story

    Designing a loudspeaker system is a lot easier today than it was in the past. It used to be that only a limited number of drivers were available, and there was a lot of trial and error involved in making the boxes. Now we’re blessed with two major improvements. First, we have computers to help us, and programs like BassBox Pro and Hornresp make it easy to design and make changes to the design without ever having to cut a… View this story

    Eminence Speaker has introduced the PSD:2013, a new 85-watt compression driver offering a smoother frequency response through an improved voice coil design that reduces moving mass and increases high-frequency extension. With a sensitivity rating of over 108 dB, the PSD:2013 has a 1-inch throat and 2-inch voice coil as well as a 34-ounch ferrite magnet. It has a sensitivity rating of over 108 dB and a usable frequency range of 1.5 kHz to 20 kHz. “It can be argued that… View this story

    FaitalPRO has introduced two new neodymium compression drivers, the HF146 and HF106. The new HF146 driver is a “technologically evolved” version of the current HF144 model, offering a more linear frequency response and different tonal balance. (Note that the HF144 is still available.) The HF146 has an AES power rating of 80 watts (maximum power 160 watts), sensitivity of 109 dB (1W/1m), and suggested crossover frequency of 0.9 kHz (12 dB/oct.). Like the HF144, the magnet assembly of the HF146… View this story

    real world gear drivers

    Once upon a time, most sound companies had a wood shop for building loudspeakers as well as road cases. These days, superior off-the-shelf loudspeakers employ high tech transducers. Indeed, some of the most advanced drivers are not for sale to the general public outside of the products that enclose them. Adamson Systems, JBL Professional and Meyer Sound have developed proprietary transducer technology that can only be owned though purchase of their loudspeaker systems, but we won’t be covering those products.… View this story
