  • Notes
  • This twin " quality " reproducer, incorporating two independent speakers, is the latest application of the now well-known 'Series gap' magnet system, originated by W.B. engineers.

    The centre pole is hollow and forms the beginning of the pressure horn which loads the convex high-frequency diaphragm at the rear. In front, this pole piece is surrounded by a separate gap, in which the low-frequency speech coil operates. The speaker should not be confused with the double-cone type.

    There is no cross modulation, and the range very evenly covered (especially if a cross-over network is used) is from 50 to 14,000 c.p.s.

    Although suitable for outputs up to 6 watts only, this small speaker is nevertheless a high-fidelity reproducer in the best sense of the word
