This 5" full range OEM driver from Celestion was designed in Great Britain for use in high-end, lightweight acoustic instrument speakers. A neodymium motor not only makes this speaker light, but it also reduces distortion by focusing all of magnetic power into the gap and onto the voice coil for complete control.
The neo motor also features a bumped backplate for reduced voice coil "bottoming out" conditions, while a paper cone is mated to a cloth accordion surround for a natural, warm midrange tone. This speaker is also nice to look at due to its rounded stamped-steel frame without requiring a recess in the baffle.
Flat frequency response from 200 Hz to 6,000 Hz, and useful to 9,000 Hz, this driver is well suited for use in HiFi home audio systems, the reduced mounting depth is useful in car and mobile audio systems, and output is high enough (89 dB 1W/1m) for professional audio applications as a midrange in three-way systems or a full range column driver for line arrays. Available in 4 and 8 ohm versions to cover a wide array of applications, including building your own personal monitor speaker. Factory buyout, limited quantities!

Note: For even greater maximum power handling, a 150 µF capacitor for a 1st order crossover point of roughly 125 Hz is recommended.
