Product Details

Fountek FE85 3" Full Range Speaker Driver

Fountek has applied much of what it has learned from designing industry-leading ribbon transducers in creating its line of full-range drivers. These high-performance cone drivers feature thin-foil aluminum diaphragms that shed resonance rapidly for exceptional detail and smooth frequency response.

The FE85 model features a generously-proportioned ferrite motor structure and a cosmetic steel frame to complement its high-tech diaphragm, creating an affordable, high-value driver choice for compact applications such as desktop speakers, mini-satellites, or line arrays.
