SB Acoustics Midwoofer Model Coding

SB Acoustics logo

Decoding midwoofer model numbers:

SB Acoustics midwoofers have a unique driver code system and as there is quite a wide range of models we have put together this chart. The nomenclature is quite simple once you know the variables:

Cone / chassis types:

CAC: Ceramic cone, vented cast aluminium chassis.
CRC: Carbon fibre / Rohacell sandwich cone, high airflow cast alloy chassis.
MFC: Mineral loaded polypropylene cone, high airflow cast alloy chassis.
NBAC: Black aluminium cone, high airflow cast alloy chassis.
NRX: Norex cone (composite paper / fibre), high airflow cast alloy chassis.
PAC: Aluminium cone, vented reinforced polymer plastic chassis.
PFC: Paper / pulp cone, vented reinforced polymer plastic chassis.
SFC: Paper / pulp cone, vented pressed steel chassis.
COAX: Paper pulp cone + soft textile dome, vented reinforced polymer chassis.
SFCR Hard paper cone, racetrack style steel chassis.

 

Using the above chart we can find the details for the following example: SB17CRC35-4 = SB 17 (chassis size, cm) CRC (cone / chassis type) 35 (voice coil diameter, mm) 4 (ohms impedance).

 

Satori logo

Satori Model Numbers:

The Satori range use a similar system however as they share some common components (such as the high airflow chassis and neodymium magnet assembly), the model codes are simpler:

Satori cone types:

 P: Proprietary cone material with EGYPTIAN PAPYRUS™, Black
PNW: Proprietary cone material with EGYPTIAN PAPYRUS™, Natural White
TX: TeXtreme® biaxially oriented thin ply carbon fibre cone

 

 Example: MW16TX-8 = Mid Woofer, 16 (chassis size, cm) TX (Textreme cone) 8 (ohms impedance).
