The new 15DS100 and 18DS100 both feature a 37mm long, 4 inch diameter (100mm) Copper Clad Aluminum Wire voice coil, ventilated voice coil gap, double silicone spider with optimized compliance, and an aluminum demodulation ring to reduce distortion. Both are rated for 1500 watt AES power, ~97dB sensitivity, and over 14.0mm of Xvar excursion. Both models are available in 8 Ohm or 4 Ohm impedances.
According to the Florence, Italy based company, these high energy subwoofers are a significant step forward from similar models in the B&C range, and perfect for reflex, and horn-loaded cabinets where small cabinet size and low frequency extension are priorities.
