B&C engineers have been working for the last five years on a family of next generation high frequency devices. Compression drivers are the linchpin of a PA system: operating at wavelengths too small to readily couple with other drivers, they alone have to fight distance and atmospheric losses to deliver concert sound pressure levels to ever larger audiences.
Enter the DCX464-16 coaxial ring radiator, designed from scratch to advance the state of the art. The DCX464’s midrange diaphragm covers 300Hz – 5.5kHz with 112.7 dB sensitivity, and its 100mm voice coil handles 220 watts. The 64mm coil high frequency diaphragm covers 3 – 18kHz with 113.3 dB sensitivity and handles 160 watts. A patented midrange integrator allows both diaphragms to work in harmony over a wide bandwidth, for greater combined output and crossover flexibility. All this energy arrives at a 1.4” throat, from the most compact package that can be designed today.
Brand new materials and thousands of hours of modelling and testing result in lower distortion at higher SPL than has ever been possible before. Consider the new DCX464 for your next design, and enjoy a new standard in fidelity, with the reliability and consistency you expect from B&C.
Also available, the ME464, large format 80x60 degree horn, and the FB464 passive crossover, in 8 or 16 Ohm configurations.
