Italian loudspeaker manufacturer FaitalPRO has expanded its ferrite range of products.
The new additions to the ferrite product range come in the form of the HF105 compression driver, the HF107 compression driver and FD371 bullet horn tweeter.
The HF105 compression driver has a total diameter of 91mm, a 37-mm voice coil, a Ketone polymer ring diaphragm and a radial phase plug. Despite the use of a ferrite magnet assembly, the HF105 weighs in at 1.1kg and has an elevated efficiency capable of an average 107 dB from 1.4 to 20 kHz.
The minimum recommended crossover frequency is at 1.7 kHz, with a nominal power rating of 40 W and a maximum of 80 W.
It is suited for medium -and small- sized two-way enclosures and inline arrays, coupled with a 12" or less woofer.
The HF105 represents the ferrite version of the HF104 neodymium driver, retaining the mechanical and acoustic characteristics from the original version with a slightly different tonality through its optimised ferrite magnet assembly.
Meanwhile, the HF107 is the second new model in the high-frequency range. Measuring 120mm in diameter weighing in at 2.4kg, it essentially serves as the ‘big brother’ of the HF105. This model is a ferrite compression driver with a 44mm voice coil and a Ketone polymer ring diaphragm structure coupled with an innovative single slot annular phase plug.
The recommended minimum crossover frequency is at 1 kHz and the nominal power is 70 W with a maximum power of 140W, while the average efficiency level is 109 dB from 800 Hz to 20 kHz.
The HF107 is designed for use in two-way applications of a certain "importance," or with powerful line arrays with a 12"/15" woofer.
Finally, the FD371 Bullet Horn Tweeter is a bullet-phase plug pro sound tweeter that incorporates its own aluminum horn. This model also incorporates a ferrite magnet assembly, a 37mm voice coil, a Ketone-polymer ring diaphragm, a horn loaded with a phase plug, an average efficiency of 107 dB on a frequency range from 2.5 to 20 kHz, and a minimum crossover frequency at 2.5 kHz.
Its nominal power rating is 35W with a maximum power at 70W, with a nominal directivity of 40° conical.
Furthermore, the FD371 offers an extended response with controlled directivity at the highest frequencies. The tweeter can be employed in multiple applications, including those at very high crossovers (5, 6, and 7 kHz).
The ferrite magnet weighs 1.2kg and has a squared flange with rounded corners, measuring 102 mm.
