Sub Bass Driver

Data Sheet
(0 Reviews)  Review this item
  • Lightweight neodymium motor system.
  • Aluminium core heat sink for reduce power compression.
  • Peak to peak maximum excursion of 52mm.
  • New 18-inch optimised, cast aluminium chassis design.
  • Long driver excursion.
  • High BL factor for controlled, fast, accurate low frequencies.
  • Double spaced suspension system for increased linearity at high excursion.
  • Suitable for bass reflex or horn loaded designs.

The FC-185ND01 is an efficient high power handling driver specially designed to provide powerful and accurate bass with low distortion and low power compression. The driver exhibits smooth tonal character combined with an ultra fast response time. The FC-185ND01 utilises an optimised fibre loaded cone assembly controlled by a fully optimised multi roll surround. The units spaced dual suspension configuration ensures excellent control during large excursions. A fully optimised motor structure built around a unique aluminum core ensures maximum flux yield from compact design and generates the minimum amount of flux modulation. The cast chassis base venting and large motor venting ensures efficient ventilation of the unit to keep power compression to a minimum.


  • Please enquire about alternative impedances.
  • A.E.S. power handling test. Pink noise bandpass filtered at 12 dB per octave with cutoff frequencies of 35 Hz and 350Hz. Driver mounted in free air, test signal applied at rated power for two hours.
  • Please note that the frequency response measurements are supplied for comparison only and are not a measure of the low frequency performance which may be achieved in a fully optimised system.
