The CHN 50 is a very affordable compact 3 inch full range driver suitable for use in small near field loudspeakers, as a quality mid-tweeter for low-crossover multi-way designs, and for line array speakers.
Markaudio have built a gentle rise into the low and high frequency response, as seen in some of their premium drive units, to enhance positioning flexibility. The sound presentation is forgiving, without glare, and the Thiele / Small parameters, with a generous 3.5mm (1-way) Xmax, are balanced for ease of use.
The low-mass voice coil, suspension and shallow profile magnesium alloy cone are unique to the CHN 50. The pressed steel frame is designed to be very open and allow airflow to be as free as possible to the rear of the cone. Response extends from resonance to beyond 20KHz, and the impedance rise at higher frequencies is only modest, due to the careful motor design.
