A truly versatile compact full-range driver perfectly suited for tight fitting pro audio line array and column array applications. An 8.3 oz ferrite magnet used in conjunction with an internal neodymium bucking magnet increases the sensitivity and extends the response out to 20kHz. The highly pressed cone sandwiches paper with a layer of water-resistant polypropylene for increased stiffness and lower distortion.

    I used these as midrange drivers in a 3-way home speaker system crossed at 1000 Hz and 3500 Hz with excellent results! I made separate enclosure of 0.6 litres volume for them. The crossover network is first order, and at first something sounded out of phase. I reversed the polarity on this driver and the speaker came to life. I wasn't expecting that with a first order crossover. Maybe there was a phase shift, or the polarity was incorrectly labelled on the drivers I received? Not sure, but something to look out for when working with these. Excellent build quality and sound quality. I'm very happy with these and definitely recommend them as midrange drivers.
