Celestion LF Cast Chassis Ferrite CF18VJD

* 18" ferrite magnet, cast aluminium chassis LF driver delivering 1600Wrms (AES Standard) power handling and 97dB sensitivity

* 5" high temperature, dual layer, Inside/Outside voice coil for higher efficiency, preventing sensitivity loss through thermal compression

* FEA optimized magnet assembly delivers highly symmetrical cone - movement, leading to exceptionally low harmonic distortion

* Vented front plate increases airflow to provide enhanced cooling

* Twin demodulation rings reduce flux modulation, minimizing electromagnetic distortion

* Double suspension and "multi-roll" surround provide exceptional linearity at extremes of cone excursion

8 Ohm Frequency Response


1. Tested for two hours using a continuous, band-limited pink noise signal as per AES standard. Power calculated on minimum impedance. Loudspeaker tested in free air.

2. Measured on axis at 1W, 1m in 2p anechoic environment.

3. Xmax derived from: (voice coil winding width-gap depth)/2.
