COLOSSUS 18-1000

Sub Bass Driver

Data Sheet
(0 Reviews)  Review this item

The Colossus 18-1000 is intended for use as a high-output sub-bass driver either singly or in multi way systems. It is suitable for loading in a variety of enclosure types since it allows enclosure designers considerably more freedom with specialised loading techniques without having to make allowances for physical characteristics or power handling limitations. The unit features a 4 inch voice coil immersed in a symmetric magnetic field and centralized by using two suspensions in a dual arrangement to maintain ultra linearity and stability at high excursions. The curvilinear polycellulose cone is reinforced with high strength fibrulated nylon fibres to resist deformation under extreme loads. The driver handles 1000 Watts (A.E.S.) continuous and can cope with peaks in excess of 4000 Watts. This is due to advanced thermal management in the form of a vented die-cast chassis and motor system using an internal heat sink coupled with increased motor system and voice coil venting. These measures effectively remove heat from the voice coil resulting in extremely low-power compression. The Colossus 18-1000 is designed for use in 100 to 250 litre ported enclosures.
