The Kappalite 3010LF is a 10” neodymium subwoofer with an ultra-linear long-excursion suspension, deep wound 3” voice coil, and an extra deep motor assembly. These features allow this new design to move serious amounts of air and generate serious SPL. With a music program power rating of 900 watts, the strong motor design, low Vas, and high Mms allow this driver to play down low in very compact vented boxes.
Eminence Speaker LLC adds three ultra-lightweight 10” neodymium models to their Kappalite family of professional audio loudspeakers and showcased the new drivers at Winter NAMM
show 2013 and at Prolight + Sound
show 2103 in Frankfurt.
“Don’t let the low rated SPL fool you.” said Jerry McNutt, Design Engineer at Eminence. “Making loud deep bass in a small box required extra stroke, high moving mass, high motor strength, and high power handling. The Kappalite 3010LF has it all and weighs less than 8 lbs!”
The Kappalite 3010MB is a 10” neodymium driver recommended for use in vented designs for mid/bass, vocal wedge, or high power satellite applications. It can also be used in very small sealed designs for true midrange applications. The truncated basket is great for line array use, or for tucking away in other tight fit situations like high power competitive auto sound.
The low distortion neo motor and 3” copper edge-wound voice coil provide clarity at high volume. “The Kappalite 3010MB is the perfect solution for people looking for very high SPL, high power handling and super-low weight by providing a high 98.6 dB sensitivity rating, 800 watt music program rating, and weighing a mere 7.1 lbs.” said McNutt.
And for applications requiring a high SPL, high-power midrange driver, the Kappalite 3010HO is the perfect solution. This new water-resistant driver has a sensitivity rating of 99.9 dB 1W/1m, a power rating of 800 watts (Music Power), and only weighs in at 7.1 lbs. “With its compact truncated cast aluminum frame and shallow neo motor design the Kappalite 3010HO will be equally at home in a huge line array system exciting a stadium crowd or in a high power auto sound system.” said McNutt. “The LF, MB and HO models are a great addition to our ever growing Kappalite family of high value, high performance pro audio drivers that won’t break your back or your wallet.”
