Product Details

B&C DE10-8 1" Mylar Horn Compression Driver 8 Ohm 2-Bolt

B&C's DE10-8 1" high frequency compression driver is small and efficient, yet does not sacrifice fidelity. Its smooth, brilliant output extends to 18,000 Hz, and is accurate yet non-fatiguing. The DE10-8 is perfect for compact 2-way loudspeaker systems, as well as the tweeter component in larger 3-ways. Although engineered to excel in demanding pro audio environments, the DE10 is also the choice of many home audio high-efficiency speaker enthusiasts.

Specifications: • Power handling: 20 watts RMS/40 watts program above recommended crossover of 2.5 kHz/12 dB slope • VCdia: 1" • Impedance: 8 ohms • Frequency response: 1,500-18,000 Hz • SPL: 107 dB 1W/1m • Dimensions: 3.5" diameter x 2.1" depth • Net weight: 1.8 lb. • Replacement diaphragm available.

B&C Speakers' line of compression drivers is the result of a continuous research effort, dedicated to refine every component in the structure, and their overall balance. Diaphragms are made of titanium, or mylar, or both, in order to get the required results in efficiency and bandwidth. Their shape and structure is mathematically evaluated well before building the first prototype. Afterwards, their performance is tested with methods that range from modal analysis to laser vibrotomy.

All voice coils are of the edgewound ribbon type, and made of aluminum to reduce mass and achieve the best electro-acoustic performance. The magnet assembly is designed and optimized with up-to-date software for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and complemented, where needed, by a copper cap to improve frequency extension and linearity. Equal care is taken in the design of phase plugs, whose role in enhancing performance and reducing distortion artifacts is critical for compression drivers. The precision and transparency of B&C compression drivers is constantly improved by the progress in acoustical modeling and simulation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great driver for super-tweeter usageThis driver's sound quality is excellent and the distortion is low as you can see in the Zaph|audio.To use as s super tweeter, there is no audible distortion at all.Considering its price, strongly recomennded.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great driver for the priceI have been using a pair of old JBL 075 bullets in front of my workbench which is where I sit all day. They have great detail but I have found them quite fatiguing. These B&C's have changed all that. Better in every way! Even though posting to Australia cost as much as the drivers I do it again. They are sitting atop a pair of Sony APM mids and its a great combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth driver for the price.I used this driver to replace the Selenium drivers used by Zilch and company over at AudioKarma. The Selenium driver was a bit too edgy for me and the mylar diaphram on this driver really smoothed the treble.Installed in a PE trap cab 245-32512" Eminence Cannabis Rex 16 ohm drivers for the midbass, Pyle PH612 horn with B&C BDE10-8 1" Mylar Horn Driver 8 Ohm 2-Bolt and Selenium throat adapter #264-323 using jackgiff's Econowave hi-sensitivity crossover from AudioKarmas site. Sealed cabinet for use with a subwoofer. Stuffed with fiberglass and well braced with 3/4" oak dowels. Equals Great Sound.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great with the Dayton 10Iv'e been using this driver with the Dayton H10RW 10" Round Waveguide for about a year now in my home HiFi coupled to a Eminence Beta 10" mid woofer. I'm crossing it lower than it's recommended crossover frequency, around 1.8khz using a 24db active LR. It requires a little bit of EQ to lift the higher end of the spectrum but that is more the waveguide than the driver. It really does sound very good, non-metallic.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good price/performance ratio.The DE 10's are very solidly built, nice fit and finish.I'm currently using the DE-10 mated with the ME-10 and 8PS21 midwoofer and together they make a outstanding setup.They provide great clarity and detail/resolution without becoming fatiguing during long periods of listening time.Test results can be seen at Zaphaudio.com

Will the B&C DE10-8 be a good match with the B&C ME45 horn?

They would be installed in a pair of JBL JRX 125 cabs. The original JBL drivers were shrill & harsh. I replaced the JBL drivers with Seleniun 220 ti drivers which overpowered the 15's & broke the plastic horns they were mounted to.
Asked by: Bassman 5000
Yes these will be a good match with each other.
