APPLICATIONS
The ”Fifty-fifty” is one of our best sellers. Designed in 1991, its goal
was to become a universal Bass Driver for high quality sounding
sound reinforcement multi-way systems. So that its qualities are
well balanced between parameters: High SPL / Bass extension /
enclosure compactness / sonic qualities. 
This statement comes from the exceptional powerful design of its
3”magnet system in association with a deflection controlled
diaphragm, which allows it to be used over 800 Hz if necessary
against the cost of a slight directivity compromise. 
The optimum acoustical load is Bass-Reflex type of 60L to 85L
tuned from 46Hz to 42Hz. Enclosure volumes over 90L are not
