FR055WA01/02     2 neodymium, alu-cone fullranges, 4/8 ohm

 

 

 

 

 

The 2” transducers FR055WA01 (4 ohm) and FR055WA02 (8 ohm) were designed especially for high quality multimedia and lifestyle speakers, and for personal audio products, where sound reproduction without compromises is required.
Will work well as a midrange/treble transducer in small speaker products in combinbation with for instance a small subwoofer unit.

Important!
Please observe that these text files for download are actual measurements of the drivers measured in infinite baffle and without any enclosure. Measuring the drivers in a finite baffle (like the baffle of most speaker cabinets) and in any size of enclosure will lead to different response curves.

FEATURES

  • True full-range design with on-axis output to beyond 20kHz
  • Dual neodymium magnet structure for high efficiency and almost ideal magnetically shielding
  • Copper cap on center pole to reduce voice coil inductance and to minimize variations in voice coil inductance as a function of voice coil position
  • Black anodized alu cone for better heat transfer
  • Vented polymer chassis for lower air flow speed reducing audible distortion
  • Vented voice coil former for reduced distortion and compression
  • Heavy-duty black fiber glass voice coil bobbin to reduce mechanical losses resulting in better dynamic performance and low-level details
  • Large motor with 22 mm voice coil diameter for better control and power handling
  • Low-loss suspension (high Qm) for better reproduction of details and dynamics
  • Black motor parts for better heat transfer to the surrounding air
  • Conex spider for better durability under extreme conditions
  • Gold plated terminals to ensure long-term trouble free connection

Note 1

Measured in infinite baffle.

Note 2

Tested in free air (no cabinet).

Note 3

Measured using a semi-constant current source, nominal level 2 mA.

Note 4

Measured at 25 deg. C

Note 5

It is generally a rough simplification to assume that loudspeaker transducer voice coils exhibit the characteristics of an inductor. Instead it is a far more accurate approach to use the more advanced model often referred to as the “Wright empirical model”, also used in LEAP-4 as the TSL model (www.linearx.com), involving parameters Krm, Erm, Kxm, and Exm.
This more accurate transducer model is described in a technical paper (PDF) here.

Note 6

After burn-in specifications are measured 12 hours after exiting the transducer by a 20 Hz sine wave for 2 hours at level 2.83/4.0 VRMS (4/8 ohm version). The unit is not burned in before shipping.
