Optimised, lightweight ferrite design, only weighs 13 kg.
New 18-inch optimised, cast aluminium chassis design.
Long driver excursion. Peak to peak maximum excursion of 52mm.
High Qts (0.530) for larger enclosure designs.
Double spaced suspension system for increased linearity.
Suitable for bass reflex or horn loaded designs.
The FC-185F01 is an efficient high power handling driver specially designed to provide powerful and accurate bass with low distortion and low power compression. The driver exhibits smooth tonal character combined with a fast response time. The FC-185F01 utilises an optimised fibre loaded cone assembly controlled by a fully optimised multi roll surround. The units spaced dual suspension configuration ensures excellent control during large excursions. A fully optimised motor structure built around a high grade Y35 magnet ensures maximum flux yield from compact design and generates the minimum amount of flux modulation. The cast chassis base venting and large motor venting ensures efficient ventilation of the unit to keep power compression to a minimum.
