The Colossus 18XBN is intended for use as a high-output sub-bass driver either singly or in multi way systems. The unit features a 4 inch ‘sandwich’ inside and outside windings voice coil, immersed in a symmetric magnetic field and centralized by using two suspensions in a dual arrangement to maintain ultra linearity and stability at high excursions. The heavily ribbed straight-sided paper cone membrane is reinforced with high-strength composite fibres to resist deformation under extreme loads. The driver handles 1000 Watts (A.E.S.) continuous and can cope with peaks in excess of 4000 Watts. This is due to advanced thermal management in the form of a vented die-cast chassis and motor system using an internal heatsink coupled to a large vaned heatsink mounted on the rear of the unit. These measures effectively remove heat from the voice coil resulting in extremely low-power compression. The Colossus 18XBN is designed for use in 100 to 250 Litre ported enclosures.
- 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.
