Galaxy Audio S5N-16 5" Neodymium Full Range Driver 16 Ohm

Galaxy Audio introduces the 5" driver of the future! Like its predecessor, this speaker is tailored to reproduce a frequency range from 150 to 18,000 Hz. The magnet of the NEOLITE is manufactured from neodymium, which has an extremely intense magnetic field in comparison to its weight. The NEOLITE is as powerful as the previous 5" driver, yet weighs 1/3 as much. In addition, the driver is shielded. This allows the speaker to be placed near sensitive equipment that may be affected by a strong magnetic field, such as a TV or a computer monitor.

The Galaxy Audio S5N-8 controlled bandwidth transducer delivers maximum sound levels and unsurpassed durability under the most stringent operating conditions. It features an aluminum frame, 7.4 oz. neodymium magnet structure, Super Cool cooling technology, underhung voice coil, and linear spider. The 1" voice coil includes a polyimide former, and Ferrofluid cooling reduces distortion and power compression while increasing speaker life. The S5N-8 is optimized for use in infinite baffle/acoustic suspension type enclosures. Galaxy’s new 5" driver retains all the sound characteristics of the original driver without sacrificing sound, power, or reliability. It is a direct replacement for the old ceramic ferrite magnet speaker in terms of performance and sound signature.

The NEOLITE can handle 100 watts continuous/200 watts max! How is it possible for a speaker this size to handle power like that? A speaker is only as good as its ability to dissipate heat. The NEOLITE has a patented cooling system called SUPER COOL. SUPER COOL is based on three different methods of heat transfer.

Conduction

The speaker is cooled by Ferrofluid, which is a liquid agent in which the voice coil is immersed. This conducts heat away from the voice coil to the surrounding motor structure. The aluminum frame of the NEOLITE also helps conduct heat away from the motor.

Convection

The NEOLITE employs three venting chambers, which provide air flow caused by cone movement. Designed into the cast aluminum frame are cooling fins and vent holes. These fins and vent holes are strategically placed around the speaker to maximize airflow to help dissipate heat.

Radiation

The aluminum frame is painted black. The black paint helps to radiate heat away from the frame. The NEOLITE is truly unlike anything available today. Galaxy has maintained the same great sound in a much lighter package. If you are looking to put the NEOLITE in your own cabinet, it can be front or rear mounted in the enclosure. The NEOLITE is unmatched by any other 5" speaker!

Reviews

Galaxy Audio S5N-16 5" Neodymium Full Range Driver 16 Ohm
Galaxy Audio S5N-16 5" Neodymium Full Range Driver 16 Ohm is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Very Fine ReplacementThis replaced a 5" 16 Ohm midrange in a pair of Pioneer CS99A speakers. The sound is excellent, sufficiently bright for my 54 year-old ears. The cage doesn't fit the cabinet cutout, but I knew that before I ordered. While this is a full range speaker, I am only asking midrange wavelengths from it, I can't speak for >2000Hz or <500Hz or so.

Galaxy Audio S5N-16 5" Neodymium Full Range Driver 16 Ohm

I have previously bought Galaxy 5" speakers from PE for some time to fix Galaxy CorePAS5X140 amps. A regular magnet version is not in your catalog now, just the Neodymium version, which is somewhat deeper. Will this new model fit this Galaxy spot?

Asked by: Victorianman
Yes these are designed to be direct drop in replacements for the older ferrite magnet models.
