SB Acoustics SB17NBAC35-4 Aluminium Midwoofer

SB Acoustics logo


The SB Acoustics SB17NBAC35-4 is a 6 inch 4 ohm midwoofer featuring a black aluminium cone and a vented cast alloy chassis. The rigid cone has pressed geometric reinforcement troughs that suppress ringing / breakup modes offering extended pistonic action, this results in a much wider usable response than normally found with metal coned drive units.

Also available in 8 ohms: SB17NBAC35-8.

Key Features:

  • Vented cast aluminium chassis for optimum strength and low compression.
  • Geometrically reinforced aluminum cone for optimum piston operation and reduced break-up.
  • Soft low damping rubber surround for improved transient response.
  • Non-conducting fibre glass voice coil former for minimum damping.
  • Extended copper sleeve on pole piece for low inductance and low distortion.
  • CCAW voice coil for reduced moving mass.
  • Long life silver lead wires.
  • Vented pole piece for reduced compression.
