Tang Band Speaker, often known as TB Speaker, was established in Taiwan in 1996. Over the past 20-plus years, they expanded their product portfolio of finely engineered speakers, full-range drivers, dome tweeters, and subwoofers of every description while always utilizing the most innovative construction materials and processes. Tang Band Speaker has made a name for itself worldwide with broadband loudspeakers. It is one of the leading technology carriers in the industry, even for the European market's high-quality standards. Tang Band vision goes beyond providing quality speaker drivers. They continuously continue to use their experience in sound technology and deliver DIY audio solutions for speakers’ enthusiasts worldwide. As a manufacturer, the lowest distortion and consistency are Tang Band's main consideration while designing drivers because they keep the final speaker system's quality assurance.
Tang band drivers are some of SoundImports’ most popular ones. For example, the Tang Band W5-2143 with a bamboo fibre paper cone, structured Santoprene surround, and underhung motor, the W5-2143 5" full range from Tang Band has an impressive response from 55 to 20,000 with very low distortion. The Tang Band W3-1878 full-range driver features an underhung neodymium motor design that provides extended, linear response while reducing 2nd and 3rd harmonic distortion. Tang Band W5-1138SMF is the 5-1/4" driver of choice for ultra-miniaturized subwoofer systems intended for computer workstations, offices, and even mobile audio applications. A true long-throw subwoofer, the diminutive Tang Band W3-1876S 3" driver, provides a solid bass kick to the smallest possible speaker systems. The Tang Band W8-2145 is a full range 8’’ driver, with its bamboo fibre reinforced paper cone can provide an incredibly smooth response. With an underhung motor design, most of the voice coil stays within the magnetic gap for the highest possible control to keep 2nd and 3rd order harmonic distortion at a minimum. The unique Whizzer cone with phase plug design allows for better dispersion while increasing high-frequency response. This driver is ideally suited for small single-driver speaker systems with incredibly smooth and full sound.
Most of Tang Band’s Tweeters in our stock are dome tweeters and, despite being quite small, they offer very refined performance that is unusual for their size and price range. For example, the Tang Band 13-1761S features a highly damped fabric diaphragm, neodymium magnet, and ferrofluid cooling, making it a very competent little tweeter. The Tang Band 25-1719S is a ceramic dome tweeter with fabric surround, ferrofluid-cooling, and magnetically shielded neodymium magnet. Tang Band's acoustically matched Tang Band RT-2202S ribbon tweeters use an extremely lightweight aluminium diaphragm to provide incredible detail and unmatched transient response. With an extremely smooth response up to 30,000 Hz, these tweeters are exceptionally easy to work with. Tang Band 25-1166SJ is a compact neodymium tweeter that offers very refined performance that is unusual for this size and price range. An enhanced dome damping technique gives excellent high-frequency extension as well as a good low-end response.
