The 10.5” transducer SW270WA01 was designed specifically for high performance subwoofer applications where sound quality and low distortion are the priorities. It features the Wavecor Balanced Drive motor technology.
Balanced Drive motor structure for optimal drive force symmetry resulting in largely reduced even order harmonic distortion
Extremely large linear stroke, Xmax +/-11 mm, ensuring low distortion at high output levels
Very rigid air dried paper cone cone to ensure piston motion at high levels for reduced distortion
Chassis with extensive venting for lower air flow speed reducing audible distortion
Vented center pole with dual flares for reduced noise level at large cone excursions
Heavy-duty black fiber glass voice coil former to reduce mechanical losses resulting in better dynamic performance and low-level details
Large motor with 2” voice coil diameter for better control and power handling
Built-in alu field-stabilizing ring for reduced distortion at high levels
Low-loss suspension (high Qm) for better reproduction of details and dynamics
Black platedd 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

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.
Measuring conditions, SPL Driver mounting: Flush in infinite baffle, back side open (no cabinet) Microphone distance: 1.0 m Input signal: 2.83 VRMS stepped sine wave Smoothing: 1/6 oct.
Measuring conditions, impedance Driver mounting: Free air, no baffle, back side open (no cabinet) Input signal: Stepped sine wave, semi- current-drive, nominal current 2 mA Smoothing: None
Measured in infinite baffle.
Tested in free air (no cabinet).
Measured using a semi-constant current source, nominal level 2 mA.
Measured at 20 deg. C
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.
After burn-in specifications are measured 12 hours after exiting the transducer by a 20 Hz sine wave for 2 hours at level 10 VRMS. The unit is not burned in before shipping.
