    Product details

    Dayton Audio Epique E150HE-44 5-1/2" DVC MMAG Extended Range Subwoofer 4 Ohm per Coil

     

    Combining world-class performance with a reasonable cost, the Epique E150HE-44 5-1/2" carbon fiber cone woofer from Dayton Audio sets a new standard in versatility, distortion, and response for small speakers. This dual voice coil driver uses a patented MMAG dual gap motor assembly for unmatched linear excursion capability to create compact systems with more bass output and lower distortion than ever. Featuring a carbon fiber cone, dual voice coils, custom tooled suspension, FEA optimized motor, cast aluminum frame, ample venting, and extensive induction control, the E150HE-44 pushes the limits of performance for a 5-1/2" driver. Capable of exceptional performance in everything from small subwoofers to 2-way designs, this versatile driver will redefine what is possible from compact speaker systems.

     

    MMAG motor assembly - like no other

    MMAG = Multiple Magnet Air Gap

    The heart of the E150HE-44 is the patented MMAG dual gap motor assembly. This unique design uses 2 top plates spaced between 6 smaller bucking magnets creating a longer magnetic gap with more consistent flux than more common dual gap arrangements. The combination of the MMAG motor and the underhung voice coil gives the E150HE-44 zero loss of motor force (Bl) even when driven to 10 mm of excursion, and an overall excursion capability of over 14 mm (at 70% Bl). This incredible excursion capability allows extremely low harmonic and intermodulation distortion to ensure remarkably clean output even when driven to high output levels. Furthermore, the motor includes extensive induction control to lower Le and improve high-frequency response.

     

    Carbon fiber is all about performance

    The rigid carbon fiber cone gives the E150HE-44 a unique look while offering a number of performance advantages. With one of the highest strength-to-weight ratios of readily available materials, carbon fiber keeps the moving mass to a minimum enabling extended low-frequency extension without sacrificing efficiency. The woven cone has excellent damping properties which keep unwanted resonances under control for the incredibly smooth response all the way up to 4,000 Hz. Optimized cone and dust cap profiles make sure that there is no deformation when exposed to high stress so the smooth response and low distortion remain consistent even when pushed to high output levels. Finally, the outside edge of the cone has been reinforced to further control cone breakup and help maintain controlled off-axis dispersion.

     

    High excursion requires flexible suspension

    When designing the E150HE-44, Dayton Audio paid extra attention to optimize the suspension to guarantee unrestricted excursion without limiting performance. The large roll rubber surround was custom tooled for high excursion while paying extra attention to the profile to avoid limiting off axis dispersion. A filleted inside edge helps to add extra damping to the cone while reducing reflection from the high roll surround to further improve higher frequency response. A large diameter progressive spider helps keep the cone linear when driven to high excursion without restriction. In addition, the tinsel leads have been woven into the spider on opposing sides to keep mass and compliance displaced evenly across the spider.

     

    Extensive venting helps displace unwanted heat

    Excess heat build up will increase resistance and cause significant power compression and even failure. The force air across the voice coil and keep everything cool the E150HE-44 has extensive cooling. Another advantage of this MMAG motor assembly is the open spaces between the bucking magnets which allow unrestricted airflow directly into the center of the magnetic gap. With this open layout cool air is pulled directly across the voice coil to remove heat more efficiently than more common motor designs. Also the E150HE-44 includes a vented voice coil former, 3 large peripheral gap vents, and unrestricted airflow under the spider to make sure that every component has fresh air moving across it to keep temperatures at a minimum even when pushed hard for long periods.

     

    Cast aluminum frame holds everything together

    In order to support its massive motor assembly while providing a solid mounting surface, the E150HE-44 uses a rugged cast aluminum frame. The minimalistic design of the frame eliminates unwanted reflections and provides ample airflow for the rear of the cone. With plenty of space behind the spider makes sure that you can push the limits of excursion without bottoming out. Being a non-magnetic material, the aluminum frame has no effect to the magnetic field allowing the motor to effortlessly perform exactly as designed. As an added bonus aluminum is an excellent conductor of heat to further assist in cooling.

     

    Note: This is a dual voice coil driver with 4 ohms per voice coil. Specs have been measured with the voice coils wired in series.

    Top bass speaker. 30 jaar geleden bouwde ik al voornamelijk subwoofers en bandpass kasten voor concertzalen. Lange slag speakers waren er al wel, maar niet echt in groot formaat en ook niet met extreem lange slagen en dubbele spoelen. Het waren voornamelijk Beyma 18'' en 15'' kasten die toen de zalen en velden vulde met heerlijk diepe en harde bassen. Een tijdje geleden ben ik weer gestart met speakers bouwen eerst een Alpine type R 10'' voor in de auto en daarna bleutooth speakers voor thuis. Ik heb veel gekke dingen gehoord en gemaakt, maar deze kleine epische vriend verbaasde me na ruim 30 jaar bouwen toch weer. 5 1/2 inch en geen vervorming terwijl heel je huis staat te schudden met slechts één klein speakertje in een 12.5 liter kistje met een poort op 35Hz. Ik heb nooit aan de olympische spelen mee gedaan, maar als je deze vriend voor het eerst aan zet krijg je toch echt een gevoel dat je net de finale heb gewonnen. Of je nu amateur of pro bent, dit is puur in de zin van kwaliteit, prijsklasse en machtsvertoon. Ik ben nu ruim 50 jaar en had niet gedacht dat ik nog zo onder de indruk van iets kon zijn. Deze speaker krijg van mij geen vijf sterren, maar een 10+ met een griffel.

    Super BASS speaker. Open air hoor je al dat hij ultra laag gaat. In een kist van 9.9 liter netto op 34Hz sub ported trillen alle deuren en ramen in huis. 30 jaar geleden bouwde ik al Beyma sub en bandpass kasten voor concertzalen met voornamelijk 18 '' en 15'', ik dacht dat het niet veel gekker kon. Toch kon ik het niet laten om een half jaar geleden weer te starten met bleutooth speakers te bouwen en wilde ook gewoon een kleintje bouwen een paar weken geleden. Ik kan tegen zowel de amateur als de doorgewinterde pro zeggen dat dit zonder overdrijven de allerdikste en zeker ook beste in zijn prijsklasse is. Ik krijg nu thuis gewoon weer het gevoel dat ik met een klein speakertje in een concertzaal sta. Uiteraard krijg deze van mijn slechts 5 sterren. Deze verdiend zonder te blikken of blozen een 10+ Sound Imports, bedankt voor het gewoon deze speaker in Nederland te verkopen en ook nog eens binnen één dag thuis af te leveren. In het kort, als je deze speaker aanzet krijg je een klein béétje het gevoel dat je net Olympisch goud heb gewonnen.
