Test Bench: Tang Band Speaker W8-2314 High-End Coaxial Driver
This Test Bench characterizes the W8-2314, a new 8" high-end home audio coaxial driver from Tang Band (TB) Speaker. As Vance Dickason describes, this is "as unique a design as I have encountered in quite some time." The TB Speaker W8-2314 is built on an eight-spoke two-part ABS injection-molded frame that incorporates a separate injection-molded trim ring. Incorporated into the frame is the underhung-type woofer motor that consists of a circular array of six neodymium slugs — an arrangement that makes room for the concentrically mounted 25 mm tweeter and tweeter rear cavity.
