The Peavey BWX Driver Series 1808-8he Black Widow Loudspeaker is suitable for high-performance sound reinforcement and musical instrument applications. The loudspeaker’s equipped cone is water-resistant, and has a specially designed deep roll accordion surround. The dust cap is also made of the same strong material.

The voice coil assemblies on the drivers use thermoset insulated aluminum or copper ribbon wire, bonded onto a durable, heat-resistant polyimide composite former. The coil wires are solderless, and diffusion welded to high-conductivity OFHC copper ribbon leads, which are embedded inside the former assembly and soldered to the tinsel leads with high temperature silver solder. The solder joint is then coated with a special, thermally conductive silicone adhesive for encapsulation and heat dissipation.

The voice coil assemblies are bonded to the Kevlar cone and tough nylon composite spider using a thermoset epoxy, originally developed for attaching nose cones on ICBM missiles. The spider and surround are bonded to the frame with a high-strength adhesive.

The magnet structure includes subtle changes to its geometry that helps improve power handling. The baskets from the 1808 series fit on standard BW magnet structures (the improved power handling will be compromised if the standard structure is used).

The drivers also adhere to the familiar features of Black Widow products: cast aluminum frames, replaceable basket assemblies, Rubatex gaskets, and high reliability spring loaded terminals are used.

The 1808-8he Black Widow Loudspeaker’s drivers are suitable for a wide range of sound reinforcement, high level playback, sub woofer, musical instrument, and other low-frequency applications.

The speaker features convenient baskets that eliminate the need for re-coning speakers, and the frustration and delays associated with the re-coning process. It only takes a few minutes to replace a basket and you are back in business.

The 1808-8he Loudspeaker works in moderately sized enclosures, and has extremely high efficiency. Vented and properly designed dual-reflex bandpass enclosure is suitable for this driver. It is suitable for keyboard / bass guitar / drum monitor applications.
