    The Dipole series are designed specifically for open baffle/dipole use. In an open baffle, excursion requirements are much greater for any given SPL level than they are in a sealed or vented enclosure. As a result, a woofer is needed with a large degree of linearity both in the BL and Le curves. The underhung motor of the Dipole series is ideal as it offers both extremely flat Bl and inductance. This keeps parameters consistent throughout the excursion range and keeps the drivers sounding just as good at high levels as they do at low volumes.

    Due to the underhung motor design, the power handling on the Dipole series is lower than our other drivers. However, in an open baffle the power requirments to move a driver to high excursion are also lower. These drivers are typically used in multiples per channel to provide the extra volume displacement and output required when dealing with the large rolloffs from an open baffle. These drivers have some of the best midrange performance of any of our drivers as well. They can be called upon when needing to cross much higher in frequency than is possible with a typical woofer. They are currently available in dual 8ohm coil.
