the norwegian manufacturer of drivers and audio accessories seas has introduced a 6-inch midrange speaker w18nx003 (e0096-08). it became the successor of the well-known model w18nx001 (e0042-08). Externally, the novelty does not differ from its predecessor: except that the diffuser was made a little lighter — for better consistency with the speakers of the Excel Graphene series.
It is still a design with a central bullet-shaped body. The diffuser is equipped with a half-wave rubber suspension. Classic cellulose is complemented by a proprietary two-layer Nextel coating. for more than 15 years, it has been used in seas speakers to improve damping. The aluminum basket is made by injection molding.
Unlike its predecessor, the novelty received a titanium frame of a sound coil wound with aluminum copper-plated wire. the magnetic driver system is optimized by the fea method and supplemented with precisely fitted copper parts.
As a result, the w18nx003 8-ohm driver is able to withstand 200 watts of long-term power. SEAS suggested using a speaker with powerful amplifiers, including D-class. for the w18nx003, an increased dynamics with a margin of amplitude is promised.
The cost of the new product is still unknown.
