    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

    Eighteen Sound is now shipping the NCX high performance neodymium coaxial speakers. The family is comprised of two models, the 12-inch 12NCX750 and the 15-inch 15NCX750. NCX coaxial speakers have been designed for compact reflex enclosures and stage monitor applications, and each has a nominal dispersion of 80 degrees. The 75 mm (3 inch) LF copper voice coil employs Eighteen Sound’s Interleaved Sandwich Voice coil (ISV) technology, implementing a high strength former with windings on both the outer and inner… View this story

    One year ago Steve Hutt joined Eighteen Sound (18Sound) as the manager of R&D and immediately began focusing his team on design for manufacturing, quality and production excellence. Last June the company moved to a new facility which allows for production, sales, R&D and administration to share the same building, adding even more efficiency to the design and development process. “In the last year we have redefined our internal development procedures, organized our customer response practices for fast and thorough… 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

    FaitalPRO has introduced the 18HW1070, a new heavy-duty 18-inch ferrite rawframe subwoofer. It offers a new cast aluminum, 8-spoke frame designed to reduce rear reflections, as well as enhance structural strength and contain basket weight. The 18HW1070 is equipped with triple demodulation for lower THD, with an inductance reading of 1.68 mH. With a maximum physical excursion of +/- 30mm, which combined with the Thiele & Small parameters, especially EBP, Vas and BL, make it very well suited for very… View this story

    FaitalPRO has introduced three new ferrite woofers: the 18-inch 18HW1070, the 12-inch 12FH530, and the 10-inch 10FH530. The new 18HW1070, dubbed the “high-performance subwoofer,” is outfitted with a 4-inch (100 mm) voice coil. It has a rated nominal power handling specification of 1,600 watts AES, with maximum power handling of 3,200 watts. “We wanted to create an 18-inch loudspeaker for subwoofer use that would be similar to our 18XL1600 in terms of acoustic characteristics, power, frequency response, Thiele & Small… View this story

    Eminence Speaker has added the PSD:3014, a 1.4-inch-exit compression driver, to its line of HF products. With a 100-watt continuous AES power rating, the PSD:3014 has a 3-inch voice coil and a recommended minimum crossover frequency of 800 Hz. “Sporting the same family resemblance of the PSD:3006, you would be hard pressed to find a compression driver that reliably plays as low and as loud as the PSD:3014,” says Matt Marcum, design engineer at Eminence. “It’s a large, robust, and… View this story

    At the ProLight+Sound 2013 show, Beyma introduced the 12MC500, a 12-inch cone woofer for 2- and 3-way loudspeakers, including line array modules. The new 12MC500 offers a 2.5-inch voice coil and a ferrite magnet, and assisted by Maltcross technology, Beyma’s new patent-pending cooling system, it handles up to 1,000 watts of program power and significantly reduces loss due to power compression effect. The primary application target of the 12MC500 is low and mid/low frequency program, and so it is designed… View this story
