At the recent ProLight & Sound show in Frankfurt, Germany, B&C introduced the new 18DS115 subwoofer. “This next evolution subwoofer uses a new, longer, four-layer aluminum voice coil.”, says Ron Tizzard, Director of Sales for B&C Speakers. “The result is a very high motor strength without increasing magnet weight and cost which leads to higher sensitivity, lower distortion and better overall performance.”
The 18DS115 features a 40mm long, 4.5 inch diameter (116mm) Copper Clad Aluminum Wire voice coil. With a 1700watt AES power rating, 98db sensitivity, and over 16.5mm of Xmax, this high-energy subwoofer is a significant step forward from similar models in the B&C range. First samples will be available from Italy in early May.
