Product Description

Eighteen Sound 6NMB420 6" High Output Mid-Bass Neodymium Transducer 500 Watts

Product Highlights

  • The 6NMB420 is a 44mm voice coil 6.5 inch neodymium midbass transducer designed for mid low frequency reproduction in system designs where high intelligibility is required.
  • When compared to our 6ND410 state-of-the-art midrange transducer, 6NMB420 offers a lower frequency resonance and a longer linear Xmax value. As a result the speaker shows an increased output around 250Hz, with a consequent slightly reduced output above 700Hz.
  • It is suitable as mid-bass in line array systems or multiple way systems with high-pass crossover above 200 Hz and low-pass up to 3kHz; enclosure might be closed or vented with volume size starting from 2 lit.
  • The speaker offers a superb linearity: distortion values are furtherly minimized by new enhanced design criterias, developed by Eighteen Sound engineers, taking the 6NMB420 to very high level of performance.
  • The extremely powerful external neodymium magnet assembly assures high flux concentration, low power compression and excellent heat exchange. The levels of force factor and power handling are, as a consequence, at the upper professional level with best power to weight ratio.
  • A consistent heat transfer is guaranteed by the encapsulation of the magnetic structure in the interior of the basket, offering a largecontact space between the back plate and the dissipating structure.
  • Particular efforts were dedicated to the surround shape and material design in order to minimize the resonances on mid range frequencies. The triple roll design offers a consistent damping to typical bell modes.
  • The 44 mm voice coil is made of light-weight aluminum wire and assures linearity and high power handling.
  • The ability to perform in humid environments is a key feature of the 6NMB420: this is achieved through a proprietary humidity repellent cone treatment
