Fane Pro Audio – Colossus 15XB Sub Bass Driver


The Prime 15XS is intended for use as a high-output bass driver in multi way systems and features a 4 inch ‘sandwich’ (inside and outside windings) voice coil, immersed in a symmetric magnetic field yielding increased linearity and lower distortion. This, coupled with laminated silicone suspensions, a large Xmax of 12mm with peak to peak travel of 60mm, ensures fast accurate bass at high levels of excursion. The cone membrane, manufactured from polycellulose, is much stronger and more durable than conventional paper pulp alternatives. This allows the driver to combine high-sensitivity with the structural integrity required to produce undistorted low frequencies at extreme sound pressure levels. The driver handles 1200 Watts (A.E.S.) continuous and can cope with peaks in excess of 4800 Watts. This is due to advanced thermal management in the form of vented die-cast chassis and increased motor system venting. These measures effectively remove heat from the voice coil, resulting in extremely low-power compression. The Prime 15XS exhibits 98 dB sensitivity and can deliver bass down to 29 Hz (-6 dB) in a 200

  • Please enquire about alternative impedances.
  • A.E.S. power handling test. Pink noise bandpass filtered at 12 dB per octave with cutoff frequencies of 30 Hz and 300 Hz. Driver mounted in free air, test signal applied at rated power for two hours.
  • Please note that the frequency response measurements are supplied for comparison only and are not a measure of the low frequency performance which may be achieved in a fully optimised system.
