These two new woofers now complement the company's "Xtra Large" ranking with a set of outstanding features. The resistant neodymium high power drivers have been coupled with an extremely efficient venting system allowing them to harness great power in a tight space. The neodymium magnet assembly developed by FaitalPro's engineers guarantees high flux concentration, low power compression and excellent heat dissipation. This results in high levels of force factor and power handling with an optimum power to weight ratio.
As with other models in the XL range, these two new subwoofers are capable of withstanding high power signals up to 1400W AES. Both the 12XL1200 and 15XL1200 are highly efficient subwoofers, with long and controlled excursion and a great linearity.
As FaitalPro confirms, the performance of the new 12" and 15" neodymium subs stands out amongst the other products in the catalog. Their EBP of around 100 Hz, makes them perfectly suitable for standard reflex enclosures resulting in a very natural acoustic response. Taking into account the size of these speakers, the low VAS values make them ideal in very compact cabinets with extreme acoustic performance.
"We are now ready to offer two subwoofer drivers that can handle up to 1400W AES power (2800W maximum power) and have a 100 mm voice coil which improves force transmission and thermal power handling. They match in full the market demand for top of the range powerful professional loudspeakers. Thanks to their high impact at low frequencies and an extraordinary punch the listening perception of the bass is "devastating". Their thrust gives such a powerful and present bass that it is possible to create very high impact systems with a limited number of loudspeakers," explains Flavio Naggi, FaitalPro's sales and marketing manager.
A key factor in designing these two new products was to match the market need for compact cabinets. Both these woofer are able to generate surprisingly good results in tight spaces. In fact, the 12XL1200 can operate perfectly in a volume of only 25/27 liters, while the 15XL1200 can work well in less than 50 liters.
As the Italian company confirms, thanks to the exceptional size-to-power ratio (93-95 dB SPL), a couple of these subwoofers are all users might need in a medium sized venue.
The minimum dimensions of the cabinets enable the design of almost invisible subwoofer systems in high-quality permanent installations, generating extended low-frequency reinforcement from basically any position. FaitalPro recommends these two new woofers in the XL range for applications in dance clubs, live music venues, indoor sports arenas, theme parks and worship venues, where high quality reproduction is required.
The aluminum demodulating ring, positioned in the magnet circuit, allows a further flux modulation reduction, keeping overall distortions at a low level when driven hard. The deep profile curvilinear waterproof treated cones, created from a special high strength paper pulp, are designed to achieve the best possible linearity within their frequency range. Even the cone surround, made from a linen material, is highly resistant to aging and fatigue.
