Cab Design Spec Sheet


A larger magnet version of the popular Legend CA10, the Legend CA1059 is a 10 inch cast-frame bass guitar speaker with a proven track record as THE speaker for punch and clarity in many famous OEM cabinets throughout the decades. Like the CA10, the CA1059?s chassis is truncated on the sides for tight fitting in 2x, 4x, and 8x10 configurations. Along with higher Xmax, the CA1059 also features a larger 59 oz. ferrite magnet, producing higher efficiency, and lower Qts for dampening than its smaller magnet version.

Multiple units exceed published ratings evaluated under EIA 426A specification while tested in a free-air, non-temperature-controlled environment. Multiple compression drivers exceeded published ratings evaluated under EIA-426A or AES specification while mounted on Eminence’s H290, H290S, or H2EA horn in a non-temperature-controlled environment.

The average output across the usable frequency range when applying 1W/1m into the nominal impedance. i.e: 2.83V/8Ω, 4V/16Ω. Eminence response curves are measured under the following conditions: All speakers are tested at 1W/1m using a variety of test set-ups for the appropriate impedance | LMS using 0.25" supplied microphone (software calibrated) mounted 1m from wall/baffle | 2 ft. x 2 ft. baffle is built into the wall with the speaker mounted flush against a steel ring for minimum diffraction | Yamaha P3500S amplifier | 2700 cu. ft. chamber with fiberglass on all six surfaces (three with custom-made wedges). Compression drivers were tested using a 2ft x 2ft baffle built into the wall with horn front mounted.

BETA 8CX, 10CX and 12CX are coaxial speakers with tweeter sold separately. The data for these coaxial woofers was calculated with the ASD:1001 driver screwed into the woofer, but not active.
