Celestion has released the FTX range of common magnet motor coaxial loudspeakers.

FTX 08 20The range of cast aluminium, ferrite magnet coaxial loudspeakers are available in 12-inch (305mm), 8-inch (200mm) and 6.5-inch (165mm) chassis diameters. They feature fully combined LF and HF components that are powered by a Common Magnet Motor Assembly (where the same magnet is used for both the LF and HF elements). This enables the voice coils and hence the acoustic centres of the two drivers to be brought closer together, delivering further improvements in signal coherence and time alignment, for a more natural sounding audio reproduction. The use of a single magnet assembly also means lighter weight and a more compact profile over conventional dual-motor designs.

Each model features a polyimide film HF diaphragm, enabling it to provide greater high-frequency power handling. The next-generation Sound Castle soft clamping assembly decreases diaphragm stress for further reduced distortion and even greater reliability of performance. Both HF and LF voice coils are edge wound using lightweight copper or copper clad aluminium. Not only does this increase barrel stiffness, it enables a closer coil wire packing density, leading to improved cooling and increased motor strength.

Additional features include demodulation rings that minimise the effects of power compression, as well as substantially reducing the harmonic and intermodulation distortion commonly associated with voice coil displacement.
