Celestion CDX14-2410 compression driver

Celestion has introduced its new CDX14-2410 1.4” exit, high frequency compression driver, and it is to be showcased at NAMM 2019, booth 7602 in the main hall, and 18100 in the Pro Audio Hall (ACC North, Level 2).

The CDX14-2410 features a patented phase-plug design which, together with a titanium diaphragm that has been deep-drawn for increased stiffness, results in accurate sounding HF and low rates of distortion. In addition, the consequent lower compression ratio reduces air non-linearity and allows for higher maximum SPL.

“In essence, the 2410 is a low profile, ferrite magnet version of the well-established CDX14-2420 neodymium magnet compression driver,” commented Celestion marketing manager, Ken Weller. “The ferrite magnet means it is not so light-weight as the neo counterpart, however, it delivers the same high levels of performance at a more cost-effective price.”

Designed and developed at Celestion’s headquarters in Ipswich, England, CDX14-2410 features a 60mm/2.4-inch diameter edge wound copper clad aluminium voice coil, and a 35mm/1.4-inch exit size. The new driver provides 50-watt power handling and delivers a 106 dB sensitivity performance over a frequency range of 800-20,000 Hz, with a recommended crossover frequency of 1200 Hz.
