Willys-Hifi Loudspeaker Spares News

NEW PRODUCT:

The SB Acoustics SB20FRPC30-8 is an exciting new 8" full range drive unit that challenges far costlier models.

We've had to wait a good while for this one but boy was it worth it. If you think that multiple drive units are required for true full range reproduction you're in for a surprise - the performance of the SB20FRPC30-8 at this price point is epic. A special mention here for the bass response which is warm, full & fast - far removed from the majority of thin sounding full range units regardless of cost.

This is a great new drive unit from SB Acoustics and all credit to them for getting this so right. An absolute bargain.

Back in UK stock: 4 Ohm L-pads.

We now have good stock of our exclusive 4 ohm 50 watt L-pad attenuators. These top quality components are specified / manufactured exclusively for Willys-Hifi Ltd and are not available elsewhere. Click on the image below for full details:

L-pad 4 ohm 50 watt

A new higher power 100 Watt version is also available to ship immediately:

L-pad 4 ohm 100 watt

 

L-Pad attenuators are used to adjust the output levels of speakers somewhat like a volume control. The basic internal configuration of an L-pad is a ganged network of two variable power resistors, one in series with the speaker and the other in parallel thus providing a constant impedance regardless of their setting; this allows fine tuning and balancing of multiple unit systems. As the impedance remains constant, the crossover is unaffected.

L-pad connections

Though primarily associated with midrange and treble drivers, the higher powered L-Pads can be used to control low frequency drivers; many of our customers use these in guitar amplifiers.

We stock 4 ohm, 8 ohm and the elusive 16 ohm versions.

  • Small: 480 x 378mm
  • Medium: 611 x 480mm
  • Large: 780 x 420mm
