The PD.184NR1 is ideally suited to applications where high power handling, long excursion and perfect linearity is required.
The robust mechanical design and construction makes this unit an ideal choice for fixed or touring applications. The PD.184NR1 is intended as a dedicated sub woofer in bass reflex and Horn loaded designs. The optimised radial neodymium motor system allows more efficient management of the magnetic flux, forced air venting and rear aluminium base plate keeps the motors temperature under control and reduced power compression to a minimum.

The PD.184NR1 features a 4-inch, high temperature, copper voice coil capable of handling 1000W (AES) exhibiting an average sensitivity of 97.5dB across its working band.

* Half space response measured in a 950 Litre sealed enclosure.

*1 Power compression is the reduction of sensitivity at the specified power. Higher power ratings do not necessarily give a proportionate increase in SPL therefore the maximum SPL of the driver may significantly exceed that of other manufacturers with high power ratings.

** Distortion is measured at 10% of the rated power (AES Standard).

1. AES Standard (35 to 350 Hz) Program 1000 Watts.

2. AES Recommended Practice.

3. Thiele - Small Parameters follow a 1000 Watt preconditioning period.

Please note that frequency response measurements are supplied for comparison purposes only and are not a measure of the low frequency performance which may be achievable in a fully optimised system.
