Ipswich, UK (January 17, 2017) — Celestion, the premier manufacturer of guitar and bass loudspeakers and professional audio drivers for sound reinforcement applications, is pleased to announce the availability of the latest additions to their FTX Series of common magnet motor coaxial loudspeakers, the 10” diameter FTX1025 and the 15” FTX1530. Like others in the FTX line, these new loudspeakers offer a full range frequency response in a single self-contained driver by concentrically aligning low and high frequency drivers, providing improvements in signal alignment and off-axis response when compared to a traditional two-way system.
The FTX Series’ ‘common magnet motor’ assembly – in which the same magnet is used for both LF and HF elements—enables the voice coils and acoustic centers of the drivers to be brought very close together, boosting signal coherence and time alignment, for a more natural sounding audio reproduction. The single magnet assembly also offers a lighter weight and a more compact profile, for use in applications where space is at a premium.
The FTX models feature a polyimide film HF diaphragm, for greater high frequency power handling. And Celestion’s next-generation Sound Castle™ soft clamping assembly reduces stress on the diaphragm, providing less distortion and greater performance reliability. The HF and LF voice coils are edge wound using lightweight copper and copper clad aluminium with a close packing density, offering improved cooling, increased motor strength and more barrel stiffness for accurate sound reproduction. The FTX Series also include demodulation rings which minimize the effects of power compression and substantially reduce harmonic and intermodulation commonly associated with voice coil displacement.
