SB Acoustics SB23NBACS45-8 Aluminium Woofer

SB Acoustics logo

The SB Acoustics SB23NBACS45-8 is an 8 inch 8 ohm woofer / bass speaker featuring an aluminium cone, a 45mm voice coil and a shallow profile vented cast aluminium chassis. The cone features geometric reinforcing ribs which control diaphragm breakups / bell modes allowing for a smoother extended frequency response. A versatile unit designed for applications with restricted rear depth.

Also available in 4 ohms: SB23NBACS45-4.

Key Features:

  • Soft low damping rubber surround for improved transient response.
  • Geometrically reinforced aluminium cone for improved break-up control.
  • Shorting ring in motor system for reduced distortion.
  • Vented pole piece for reduced compression.
  • Vented cast aluminium chassis for optimum strength and low compression.
  • Non-conducting fibre glass voice coil former for minimum damping.
  • CCAW voice coil for reduced moving mass.
  • Long life silver lead wires.
  • Shallow chassis design.
