PRV Audio's top-of-the-line D290Py-B polyimide 1" 2/3-bolt compression horn driver is designed to offer unsurpassed natural upper midrange and high frequency response, with accuracy not found in most manufacturer's stock PA speaker cabinets.
The specially designed polyimide diaphragm sounds very similar to the silk and textile dome tweeters used in high-end home audio speakers and studio monitors. PRV Audio combines this diaphragm with a high-energy motor for high output over the usable driver bandwidth for effortless, dynamic output.
High power handling is accomplished through the use of a Kapton® former and a 1-3/4" diameter voice coil, for a 90 watt RMS power rating when used with a 1,500 Hz 12 dB/octave high pass crossover, making the D290Py-B a drop-in upgrade replacement horn driver for nearly any speaker cabinet with an industry standard 2 or 3-bolt horn. Spring-loaded wire terminals facilitate quick connection. Includes screw-on adapter.
Also available in a 1-3/8"-18 TPI model.
