The new HF144 compression driver, developed by Italian manufacturer FaitalPRO, comprises a 2.5-inch voice coil with a 1.4-inch exit and a light Ketone Polymer dome diaphragm.
Rated at 80W nominal power (RMS), the HF144 comes with an annular phase plug equipped with four slots for improving performance in higher frequencies.
Offering a sensitivity of 110dB (1W/1m) within a frequency response of 700Hz to 18kHz, the HF144 is intended for use in two-way or three-way acoustic systems and enclosures. Similarly equipped with a Ketone-Polymer diaphragm and an innovative annular phase plug, the HF204 comes with a 2-inch exit for matching onto a two-horn. The 80W nominal power rated driver can provide a sensitivity reading of 109dB (1W@1m) within a 500Hz to 18kHz frequency range.
Also new from the manufacturer is the 18XL1500 18-inch waterproof subwoofer, which is constructed entirely from a pulp of synthetic and natural fibre cone and a special additive applied directly during the production stage.
The 1500W model comprises a neodymium magnet and has been designed for front loaded reflex or horn loaded enclosures. The woofer can be fitted into a 170 litre double chamber Band-Pass configuration with tuning respectively at 30Hz and 90Hz. The Milanese manufacturer claims that the electrical parameters are sufficiently elastic to allow a broad range of applications without complex filters.
Finally, the 15XL1400 is a 15-inch subwoofer that uses the same double spider magnet assembly and cone surround suspensions as the 18XL1500. Whilst capable of providing 1400W of nominal power, it can be installed in smaller volume enclosures, but tuned to a slightly higher frequency.
