18 Sound 18NLW9600 18" NEO PA Woofer Speaker

The (Eighteen) 18 Sound 18NLW9600 is an extended low frequency 18 inch neodymium high performance transducer. The loudspeaker has been designed for use as a subwoofer component, in either a reflex, bandpass or horn loaded configuration, in high power auditorium or arena loudspeaker systems.
For optimum results recommended amplifier should be able to deliver 3600 Watt program power without clipping. Eighteen Sound engineers have obtained the best possible results with today's available materials in terms of clean and undistorted LF reproduction at a ultra high SPL, with the lowest possible power compression figure.
The transducer design features include a large displacement suspension system specifically designed for matching the carbon fiber reinforced, straight ribbed cone.
Thanks to the Triple Silicon Spider (TSS) technology, the 18NLW9600 is able to control the moving mass with high linearity, showing an exceptional stability of mechanical parameter values in the long term. Bl force factor, as well as all other electro-dynamic parameters, are linear within the working range. This, together with the exceptional high excursion behavior - 70mm before damage, 14mm linear Xmax - makes the 18NLW9600 an extremely low distortion, highly dynamic transducer.
The state-of-the-art 5,3" inside outside ISV (Interleaved Sandwich Voice Coil) aluminum voice coil enables the 18NLW9600 to handle 3600W program power value.
The already low distortion and sound quality are further improved by an aluminum Single Demodulating Ring (SDR technology) that flatten impedance and phase with a constant power transfer.
The 18NLW9600 has been developed after intense FEA and fluidodynamics simulation and testing, focusing on dissipating the heat generated by the powerful voice coil. Special attention was given to the optimization of air flow into the gap without introducing audible noise. A special low-density material air diffractor placed into the heatsink acts as a cooling system, increasing the power handling capability and lowering the power compression figure.
The exclusive cone treatment improves pulp strength and gives water repellent properties to both sides of the cone. A special coating applied to both the top and back plates makes the transducer far more resistant to the corrosive effects of salts and oxidization.

Designed & manufactured in Italy and provided exclusively by Lean Business, this Eighteen Sound speaker comes complete wth 2 years warranty.
