We’ve Set a New Standard in High Frequency.

Building on our heritage of providing high quality products at a great value, Eminence has set a new standard in compression driver performance with the introduction of two new lightweight neodymium models: the 1.4” exit N314T-8 and 2” exit N320T-8.

N314T-8 and N320T-8Their 3” titanium diaphragms feature a geodesic rib pattern for increased stiffness, while their polymer surrounds utilize their new D3™ technology (Damped Diametric Drive) to provide a smooth, clean, and extended response while still allowing a low crossover point.

“Think of putting your finger on a bell.” states Senior Design Engineer, Matt Marcum. “Our new Damped Diametric Drive technology accomplishes a similar feat by reducing spurious dome resonance and cancellation modes that often plague typical compression drivers, resulting in a more coherent summation of sound energy at the exit of the driver.”

With a power rating of 100 watts (AES) and a sensitivity of 110 dB, the 8 ohm N314T-8 and N320T-8 weigh in at a mere 5 lbs., and feature a broad usable frequency range of 800 Hz to 20 kHz. Each model utilizes an optimized neodymium motor and copper shorting ring.

These new HF models are proving to become a leading choice in lightweight, high performance compression drivers for the most demanding audio applications. Pair each model with their 1.4” throat H14EA or 2” throat H2EA aluminum horn flares for the ultimate in accurate sound reproduction.
