These two models provide designers with a choice of mounting options (the CDX1-1730 is flange mount and the CDX1-1731 screw mount), while specifications for both devices are the same: 75-Watt power rating, 8 Ohm impedance, 110 dB sensitivity, 1.2-20 kHz frequency range, 1.75" voice coil and 1" throat exit.
And, like other CDX compression drivers in the range, these new devices make extensive use of Celestion's industry-leading experience in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to optimize the magnetic and acoustic design, helping the CDX1-1730/1731 to achieve outstanding performance at a highly competitive price point.
The new compression drivers also use Celestion's proprietary Sound Castle™ diaphragm clamping system to ensure even clamping pressure on the diaphragm surround, thereby reducing distortion while allowing the full internal volume of the rear cover to act as a loading chamber for the diaphragm, resulting in superior lower mid-band response. With exceptional heat management from the aluminum heatsink, an edge-wound coil, a choice of mounting options and a compact, lightweight design, the CDX1-1730/1731 represents a cost-effective, high performance HF solution for a wide variety of sound reinforcement applications.
Additional Screw Mount Options
Alongside the new Neo compression drivers, Celestion is also launching the CDX-1746 — a screw mount version of the popular ceramic-magnet CDX1-1745 high-frequency device. The range is further extended by the availability of an adaptor to enable screw mounting of the CDX1-14 Series drivers.
