Celestion has introduced the new CDX1-1412, a 1-inch-exit, neodymium magnet high-frequency compression driver with a compact design that’s well suited for smaller two-way cabinet designs and other portable loudspeaker applications.

Designed and developed at Celestion’s headquarters in Ipswich, England, the CDX1-1412 has a 1.4-inch diameter edgewound copper clad aluminium voice coil and the previously noted 1-inch exit size. It is stated to have 70-watt power handling and delivers a 107 dB sensitivity performance over a frequency range of 1,500 to 20,000 Hz, with a recommended crossover frequency of 2,000 Hz.

It also incorporates a single-piece Polymide film diaphragm and surround, and is fabricated using a rigid engineering thermoplastic with a standard 2 x M5 bolt fitting. Acoustic foam is utilized to minimize internal air cavity resonances, dampening unwanted reflections from the inside of the cover.

“With a diameter of only 60 mm, the CDX1-1412 is extremely compact for a one-inch-exit compression driver, enabling the device to be fitted into small cabinets where space is critical, or to be used with multiple driver horns,” says Celestion Product Marketing Manager Ken Weller. “It has highly optimized neodymium magnet assembly and a single piece polyimide diaphragm which means the driver rates at an impressively high 35-watt power handling, measured to AES standard. This makes the device a serious contender for a range of fixed install and compact array applications.”
