Eminence Speaker LLC has introduced two new additions to its Neodymium Series of loudspeaker drivers – the Alphalite 6 CBMR and the Alphalite 6A.

The Alphalite 6 CBMR is a 6.5-inch closed-back midrange driver with a new sealed 3.6-inch OD neodymium motor. Comprised of a new top plate, new back plate, new 3.6-inch OD neodymium magnet, and new core, this lightweight motor uses a very high temp grade of neodymium to prevent any heat related or power handling problems.

“The closed back means that there is no need to build an isolation chamber in your cabinet that will take up volume and add weight,” said Jerry McNutt, Design Engineer at Eminence. “It’s perfect for adding some midrange presence to your bass guitar rig or PA cabinet without adding a lot of weight.”

The Alphalite 6A is also a 6.5-inch mid/woofer with a new 3.6-inch OD vented neodymium motor. Its medium Qt allows it to work well in all sorts of enclosures, from tiny sealed midrange applications
to infinite baffle mid/bass applications.

The neo motor uses a very high temp grade of neodymium to prevent any heat related or power handling problems. Comprised of a new top plate, new bumped vented back plate, new 3.6-inch OD neodymium magnet, and new vented core, this lightweight motor can be used on other drivers in the Eminence Alpha Series or for new OEM designs.

“The new neo version saves 1.9 pounds and is 0.4-inch shallower. The motor is also smaller in diameter so it will fit into some really tight places,” McNutt added.

See both new Alphalite drivers at the upcoming Winter NAMM Show in Anaheim in January.
