The 15W600 low frequency transducer meets the specific market requirement for a loudspeaker which combines good linearity and efficiency with high power handling capabilities.
It is an ideal woofer and subwoofer choice for all two or three-way ferrite systems. Although primarily developed for compact reflex enclosures (around 70 lt), the 15W600 driver’s versatile characteristics also render it suitable for a wide variety of loading typologies, including bandpass and horn loaded. When used in a two-way system, we recommend a 1.4" or 2" exit HF compression driver match in order to achieve the best sound quality results.
The deep profile curvilinear paper cone has been made from a special high strength wood pulp designed to achieve the best possible linearity within its intended frequency range and to control bell-mode resonances around the cone circumference. The cone is carried by an unusually deep profile, double half-roll suspension formed of a linen-like material that is more resistant to aging and fatigue than traditional cotton-based ones.
The 75 mm Ø state-of-the-art voice coil is similar to those fitting our top-of-the-range 18" and 15" models. This employs our Interleaved Sandwich Voice coil (ISV) system, in which a high strength fiberglas former carries windings on both the outer and inner surfaces to achieve a mass balanced coil. This results in an extremely linear
motor assembly with a reduced tendency for eccentric behavior when driven hard.
Excellent heat dissipation has been obtained by incorporating air channels between basket and magnetic top plate.
Due to the increasing use of audio systems at outdoor events, the ability to perform in adverse, high humidity weather conditions is a key feature of the 15W600. This has been achieved using exclusive cone and magnetic plate treatment processes which enable the speaker to resist corrosion and render the cone water repellent at the same time.
