The New A3S2-16 Driver
Audience has introdued a highly improved Audience full range driver, the A3S2-16. The new driver basket and motor are machined to higher tolerances than the previous A3-S driver for a more precision assembly. The new driver also has a notably more powerful motor made possible by the use of higher-quality steel for the neodymium magnet. The new driver utilizes custom OHNO oxygen-free copper (OCC) leads between the motor assembly and the speaker lugs for improved conductivity. In addition, the A3S2-16 now has one 16-Ohm voice coil rather than the dual-8-Ohm voice coils of the previous driver, eliminating a jumper wire on each driver and the associated connections that were needed to parallel the two previous 8-Ohm voice coils to yield 16 Ohms for each of the two drivers.
The A3S2-16 driver incorporates numerous engineering refinements such as the ones mentioned above plus a large patented neodymium-magnet motor structure and voice coil that moves with a highly linear excursion of 12mm; an exclusive titanium alloy cone material with a curvilinear shape; a concave dust cap specially designed to control high-frequency cone breakup and provide optimum dispersion; a unique "S"-shaped surround that allows the driver to behave more like an ideal pistonic radiator, and many additional enhancements.
