This is the only product in the Faital catalogue with a copper cap for inductance control and lower HD. So I thought I would give it a go. I managed to source this locally, but it took 6 months from Italy to Australia.
A potential 4” mid-range, with good sensitivity (91+dB/2.83V (8 ohm)), good for ?C4 to C7 (?262Hz to 2.1KHz). It’s a reasonable price for 2024- US$60 from Parts Express:
It also comes as a 4 ohm driver, but here are graphs the datasheet of the 8 ohm model:
Here's an SPL trace with 50dB scale instead of 100dB.
An impedance trace under my Woofer Tester 3 running DATS V2 software:
Cabinet modelling suggests a volume around 0.05 cu ft (1.4L). Anechoic sensitivity is the black trace.
The brown trace is modelling in a narrow cabinet of 5 3/4” W (about half size of US Letter paper) with a 1st order high pass of ~320 Hz; the minimal I would use to protect the driver from running out of excursion.
If the pics comes out very small- The F6 is 254Hz:
Simulated 1.5mm x-max and 38W (8 ohm) power handling allows it to hit 105dB @1m SPL.
It has a stamped basket with a foam gasket designed for rear mounting. FWIW that’s not a stationary phase plug, it’s a pointy paper dust cap. It appears glued to the cone. A fly in the ointment is there doesn’t appear to be any venting under the spider.
More to come as I mount and measure it and do some distortion testing....
