    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

    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 has announced the 18iD extended low frequency neodymium transducer. The new subwoofer is engineered for maximum power transfer when operated with Class D and similar (iPal compatible) amplifiers. Designed for vented and bandpass subwoofer cabinets, the subwoofer works best with amplifiers capable of delivering 2600 Watts (10,000 Watt peak) of power. The end result is clean and undistorted LF reproduction at ultra-high SPL with the lowest possible power compression. The transducer features a state-of-the-art 5.3-inch inside-outside ISV (Interleaved… 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

    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

    Since its formation, VUE Audiotechnik has been engaged in a strategic development partnership with Materion Electrofusion, the world’s leading supplier of genuine beryllium. VUE’s goal is to develop an expanding family of high performance compression drivers that benefit from beryllium’s unique ability to dramatically improve HF performance. Note: Go here to learn about the latest implementation of this driver technology in the new VUE al-4 subcompact line array. The first results of this collaboration were revealed last June in the… View this story
