The 18NPW is a high efficiency, (98 dB 1watt / 1 meter) 18-inch woofer with incredibly linear frequency response characteristics, extreme high power handling capability while generating low harmonic distortion artifacts. The 18NPW uses a lightweight, but strong, carbon fiber loaded cone assembly along with a high excursion triple roll constant geometry surround. This combination provides remarkable strength, high efficiency and a peak to peak maximum excursion of 50mm (2in).
At the core of the 18NPW is it’s voice coil technology featuring a composite Polyimide former material capable of withstanding peak temperatures in excess of 350°C, well beyond the thermal requirements of modern professional audio systems. The 18NPW delivers incredible performance.
REDCATT has implemented a double layer/silicone spider design to ensure long term Fs memory, consistency and diminish anomalies associated with spider deterioration. The sealed spider works as a air pump and pushes the air trough out motor to increase heat transfer and cooling of the parts.
