FTR, Celestion's next generation of cast-aluminium chassis professional loudspeakers are now shipping to dealers worldwide.
"Overcoming distortion and thermal compression are major challenges for anyone designing industry-leading, professional loudspeakers," commented product development director Ian White. "By focusing on the key areas of magnet, chassis and voice coil, we've created a new kind of driver that represents an evolution in technology to achieve very high levels of performance."
The FTR Series features low thermal compression, enabling heat to be conducted rapidly away from the voice coil assembly; low distortion, using magnet structure, evolutionary voice coil construction and an optimized chassis design; and high power, enabling up to 1000Wrms (AES standard). This level of power handling requires a large voice coil, which in turn demands a substantial magnet. The cast aluminium chassis is robust enough to support a larger magnet and has been designed to dissipate more heat away from the voice coil.
