Celestion Introduces CDX14-3060, 1.4-inch Exit Ferrite Hf Compression Driver

Celestion, a pioneer in the development of professional loudspeakers for almost ninety years, announces the launch of the CDX14-3060 1.4-inch exit, high performance Ferrite magnet compression driver.

PRLog - Sep. 6, 2012 - IPSWICH, U.K. -- With a 3” copper clad aluminium voice coil driving a titanium diaphragm, the device delivers 75Wrms power handling and 106 dB sensitivity. The CDX14-3060 additionally incorporates a number of advanced technology features to minimise distortion and enhance overall performance.

Principal among these is Maximised Modal Suppression (MMS), consisting of a major new design of phase plug and diaphragm, intended to greatly reduce levels of high frequency distortion.

The phase plug was developed at Celestion’s UK headquarters from a patented design by Head of Group Research, Mark Dodd. It completely re-defines the criteria by which the physical dimensions of a compression driver’s phase plug are calculated, superseding the conventional method which is now more than 50 years old.

Working together with the new phase plug is a deep-drawn titanium diaphragm: its shape is deeper than those of conventional compression driver diaphragms, which increases stiffness. The rolled polyimide diaphragm surround improves stiffness control; together these features contribute to a genuine reduction in distortion.
The newly designed phase plug and diaphragm also deliver a lower compression ratio, reducing air non-linearity and allowing for higher maximum SPL. They provide a curved coherent wavefront at the driver’s exit, thereby optimising the unit for horn-loading.

Celestion’s next generation of Sound Castle(TM) diaphragm clamping assembly has been created to actively reduce stress on the diaphragm during operation; yet another feature contributing to lower distortion, as well as ensuring even greater consistency of performance.
