Eminence Introduces Two New Lightweight Neodymium Compression Drivers

New 1.4-inch-exit N314T-8 and 2-inch-exit N320T-8 will both be on display at upcoming NAMM Show

By PSW Staff January 15, 2015

New Eminence N320T-8 (2-inch-exit) and N314T-8 (1.4-inch-exit) compression drivers.

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 design engineer Matt Marcum. “Our new Damped Diametric Drive technology accomplishes a similar feat by reducing spurious dome resonance and cancellation modes that often plague typical compression drivers, resulting in a more coherent summation of sound energy at the exit of the driver.”

With a power rating of 100 watts (AES) and a sensitivity of 110 dB, the 8 ohm N314T-8 and N320T-8 weigh in at five pounds while providing a broad usable frequency range of 800 Hz to 20 kHz. Each model utilizes an optimized neodymium motor and copper shorting ring.
