Celestion has added to its CDX range with two new compact, lightweight, Neodymium compression drivers: the CDX1-1730 and CDX1-1731. While the CDX1-1730 is flange-mount and the CDX1-1731 is screw-mount, specifications for both devices are the same: 75-watt power rating, 8-ohm impedance, 110dB sensitivity, 1.2 to 20k Hz frequency range, 1.75-inch voice coil and 1-inch throat exit.
These new devices make use of Celestion’s Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize the magnetic and acoustic design. The new compression drivers also use Celestion’s proprietary Sound Castle™ diaphragm clamping system to ensure even clamping pressure on the diaphragm surround, thereby reducing distortion while allowing the full internal volume of the rear cover to act as a loading chamber for the diaphragm.
In addition to the new Neo compression drivers, Celestion is also launching the CDX-1746, a screw-mount version of the ceramic-magnet CDX1-1745 high-frequency device. The range is further extended by the availability of an adaptor to enable screw mounting of the CDX1-14 Series drivers.
