Manufacturer: 18 SOUND

The 10M600 is a top performance 10-in ferrite midrange driver which offers high power handling capability w/exceptional sensitivity over the middle frequency band.
It is suitable for either direct radiating or horn loaded applications as part of a 3 or 4-way auditorium, touring, or outdoor festival sound system.
It is the result of an intensive development program which aimed to produce the best 10-in ferrite midrange driver available.
The smooth curvilinear paper cone has a special high strength wood pulp composition & has been designed to achieve the best possible linearity within the middle frequency range & to control bell-mode resonances around the cone circumference.
The cone is carried by a double half-roll suspension composed of a material which is more resistant to aging & fatigue than traditional materials, providing the correct damping & excursion control.
The 75 mm state-of-the-art voice coil assembly incorporates a fine edge-wound aluminum wire together w/a strong fiberglas former to get the necessary force factor, mass lightness & high power handling.
The voice coil is cooled using airways between the chassis back plate & the magnet face plate, which allow heated air from the voice coil & gap to be channeled away & dissipated by the chassis basket.
This technology is another product of 3D CAD resource application by our engineers.
The magnetic structure has also been optimized using our in-house FEA CAD resource which has maximized the flux density in the voice coil gap.
A special treatment is applied to both the top & back plates making them more resistant to the corrosive effects of salts & oxidation.
This treatment is more effective than any other treatment in use today.
