This particular shape results from the following requirements
The hexagonal shape with its eight ear fastening basket has become part of the PHL AUDIO signature from the very beginning.
All our products have been designed recently - PHL AUDIO was born in 1990 - and integrate a specific technological solution to satisfy the centering requirement. Our design philosophy is to always prefer the simplest and most rational solutions. The solution lies in the size of the spider which has been chosen large enough for its internal stress to be kept well under the elasticity limit when pulled to maximum damage excursion.
This is a direct consequence of the advantage of their particular design based on the VENTED COMPACT MAGNET SYSTEM® and the INTERCOOLER SYSTEM®. Applied to each PHL AUDIO unit these two systems have enabled us to design high strength magnet systems -for example our 3''magnet system used on the SP5050 is specified at 23.4 N/A for Xmax = ±7.0mm - without reducing maximum linear excursion capability (Xmax) as is usually the case.
Consequently the speaker design requires a slightly higher moving mass - on the SP5050 Mms = 109 gr - to compensate for the high strength magnet system and obtain a good balance between bass frequency extension and sensitivity. As for the design of a suitable Bass-Reflex cabinet, the results show an optimum box volume Vb of 75 liters with a tuning frequency Fb of 43Hz, which represents a volume requirement of 20 to 30% less than a conventional 15'' LF driver with 4'' coil. Such a reduction in internal enclosure volume saves wood and weight...
And thanks to so compact a sound system, storage, shipment volume and weight are saved. And finally time and money are saved for the setting up and taking off of touring sound reinforcement systems. So take the advantage with PHL AUDIO.
Only IEC and AES Power handling capacity are standardized values.
Because all PHL AUDIO drivers are designed to bring competitive advantages to your products:
Choosing PHL AUDIO drivers which are designed and manufactured under high quality standards may allow your clients to save time and cost, by making the necessity for driver replacement less frequent. The design of compact and light powerful sound reinforcement systems enables your clients to save time and money for setting up and taking off during touring concerts and events, and to obtain a rapid return on their investments
The choice of PHL AUDIO drivers improves the freedom and capacity of your system design :
The choice of PHL AUDIO secures your system manufacturing profit thanks to the Quality Assurance Mastery of our products which implies:
Our actions have been always inspired by our concern for health and for preservation of the environment. PHL AUDIO's action for ecology is dual.
At the manufacturing plant:
On the product design:
Any drivers from the standard range offered by PHL AUDIO can be obtained as samples. This policy does not apply to OEM prototypes. For information on OEM prototype policy, please contact us.
At PHL AUDIO, we realize that a speaker system manufacturer cannot buy every new driver which comes out on the market. At the same time, we want to offer the opportunity to evaluate each PHL AUDIO driver without hesitation. We have, therefore, developed the following Sample Policy.
i.e: You have paid for 2 samples of the SP 5050. You decide to order 24 other SP 5050’s. 2 items will automatically be deducted from the total amount of this order.
Our sample policy can be summed up as follows. You do not pay for a sample as long as you return it to the factory within 10 weeks or as long as you choose it for production.
All our products are REACH/ROHS compliant.
