    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

    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

    Celestion has announced the introduction of the new FTX range of common magnet motor coaxial loudspeakers, and they’ll be on display at the upcoming 2015 NAMM Show in Anaheim at booth 4674. Coaxial loudspeakers offer a full-range frequency response in a single self-contained driver and by concentrically aligning low and high frequency drivers, act as more of a “single source” that can provide improvements in signal alignment and off-axis response when compared to a traditional two-way system. Celestion’s FTX range… View this story

    Since the early 1980s, the term “time alignment” has been tossed around pretty freely, and with dubious degrees of accuracy. Note, however, that this was far from the first time the concept was noticed. Indeed, the engineers who provided the loudspeakers for the first “talkie” film, Al Jolson’s The Jazz Singer, noticed that the “taps” of the tap dancing scenes came out of the high-frequency (HF) horn and folded-horn low-frequency (LF) woofer at different times. Ever since, designers have been… View this story

    Beyma has introduced two new 18-inch low-frequency cone drivers at Prolight+Sound/Messe in Frankfurt. The new 18P1000FeV2 is an upgraded version of the popular 18P1000Fe model. It provides improved power handling—increased to 1,200 watts AES—while delivering accurate and controlled bass performance. The 18P1000FeV2 has a redesigned magnetic assembly and convection circuit for enhanced efficiency and extremely low air noise, sounding again improved over the previous model. Meanwhile, the new 18PWB1000Fe is designed to deliver a lower end and a deeper sound.… View this story

    Beyma has introduced the new MC500 family of ferrite-magnet woofers, available in 10-, 12-, and 15-inch sizes, primarily designed for active loudspeaker systems and line arrays as mid-range or low-frequency components. All three models—10MC500, 12MC500 and 15 MC500—incorporate 2.5-inch voice coils with ceramic magnet as well as Maltcross technology, Beyma’s propietary cooling system, which allows them to handle up to 1,000 watts of program power while dramatically reducing loss due to power compression effect. Further, MC500 models offering large displacement… View this story
