New York (June 30, 2010)–FaitalPRO has introduced the new 15XL1400, a 15” loudspeaker designed aiming for high power and long excursion.
The 15XL1400uses the same magnet assembly, double spider and cone surround of FaitalPRO’s existing 18XL1500 subwoofer.
“This way, with the new 15XL1400, we were able to reach 1400 W of nominal power,” said Flavio Naggi, FaitalPRO Overseas Sales Manager. The result is “a real subwoofer to use on the same level as the 18XL1500 but in an enclosure of smaller volume, tuned to a slightly higher frequency: it is a very specific sub, performing very well in its stroke. The mechanical excursion is the same as that of its 18” XL couterpart, presented in a slightly smaller form.”
According to FaitalPRO, the new subwoofer was introduced to respond to the needs of an increasing number of clients that required more performance from a 15”sub. Since sometimes large woofers like the 18” are not able to return punch performance around 80 -100 Hz, according to the company, it can be achieved by a 15” since it uses a lighter moving assembly.
Each loudspeaker works in its own box and operates within very tight ranges: the 18XL1500 works from 35 to 80/90 Hz and the new 15XL1400 works from 40/48 up to 110/120 Hz.
