    Eminence has introduced the Alpha 3-8, a versatile compact full-range driver specifically designed for tight fitting line array and column array applications. With a program power rating of 60 watts, the 3-inch driver utilizes an 8.3-ounce ferrite magnet in conjunction with an internal neodymium bucking magnet for increased sensitivity and extends the response out to 20 kHz. The highly pressed cone sandwiches paper with a layer of water-resistant polypropylene for increased stiffness and lower distortion. “Put eight of these in… View this story

    Celestion has announced the availability of the latest additions to the FTX Series of common magnet motor coaxial loudspeakers, the 10-inch diameter FTX1025 and the 15-inch diameter FTX1530. Both offer full-range frequency response in a single self-contained driver by concentrically aligning low and high frequency drivers, designed to provide improvements in signal alignment and off-axis response. The common magnet motor assembly – in which the same magnet is used for both LF and HF elements—enables the voice coils and acoustic… View this story

    Eminence introduces two new lightweight neodymium compression drivers: the 1.4-inch exit N314T-8 and 2-inch exit N320T-8. Their 3-inch titanium diaphragms feature a geodesic rib pattern for increased stiffness, while their polymer surrounds utilize their new D3 technology (Damped Diametric Drive) to provide an extended response while still allowing a low crossover point. “Think of putting your finger on a bell.” states senior design engineer, Matt Marcum. “Our new Damped Diametric Drive technology accomplishes a similar feat by reducing spurious dome… View this story

    Meyer Sound holds that keeping the design, manufacturing, and assembly of its drivers and amplifiers at its Berkeley headquarters is the only path to innovation and product consistency. Along the way, the company notes that its engineers have also discovered unexpected opportunities by having R&D, manufacturing, and quality assurance right on the same multi-block campus. Vice president of research and development Pablo Espinosa discusses why Meyer Sound chooses this approach to product development and manufacturing. Q: What can factory visitors… View this story

    The new 18XL1800 cone woofer from FaitalPRO is designed to recreate and reinforce very low natural audible frequencies of 20 Hz to 30 Hz. The company notes that the 18XL1800 offers very high mechanical excursion—at least one and a half times greater than the other 18-inch woofers in the FaitalPRO catalog. Rated power handling is 1,600 watts (3,200 watts maximum, AES standard). Sensitivity is stated as 95 dB. The 18XL1800 is equipped with two demodulation rings to reduce unwanted harmonic… View this story

    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

    Beyma has introduced the WR family of low-frequency drivers, which includes 10-inch (10WR300), 12-inch (12WR400) and 15-inch (15WR400) models. Incorporating ceramic magnet structures, they’re designed for applications ranging from low-frequency to mid-bass reinforcement. The 10WR300 is designed with a 2-inch copper coil and delivers an optimum response in compact bass reflex cabinets. Power handling is stated as 600 watts (program), and sensitivity at 95 dB (1W/1m). The 12WR400 and 15WR400 are outfitted with 3-inch copper coils, delivering a wider frequency… View this story
