Celestion announces the launch of the CDX20-3020; a new 2-inch exit, ferrite magnet compression driver.
With a 3-inch copper clad aluminium voice coil driving a titanium diaphragm, the device delivers 75Wrms power handling and 107dB sensitivity across a frequency range of 500 to 18,000Hz. Recommended minimum crossover frequency (at 12dB/octave) is 1kHz.
According to Celestion’s head of engineering Paul Cork “This compression drivers bring together the best elements of technology used in the most successful products of our CDX range. The design extracts the maximum performance from a unit that is surprisingly compact for a 2-inch exit device.”
Like other CDX compression drivers in the range, CDX20-3020 makes use of Celestion’s experience in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize magnetic and acoustic design, helping the device to achieve performance at a competitive price point.
This new compression driver also uses Celestion’s next generation of Sound CastleTM diaphragm clamping assembly to ensure even clamping pressure on the diaphragm surround, while actively reducing stress on the diaphragm during operation. This contributes to lower distortion while enabling the full internal volume of the rear cover to act as a loading chamber for the diaphragm, resulting in mid-band response.
With heat management, plus an edge-wound coil copper clad aluminium voice coil the CDX20-3020 is a HF solution for a wide variety of larger format sound reinforcement applications.
