Well suited for tight fitting pro audio line array and column array applications, the Eminence Alpha 3-16 American Standard Series Full Range Driver is 3" in diameter with a 0.79" copper voice coil. With a program power rating of 60W, the Alpha 3 utilizes an 8.3 oz ferrite magnet in conjunction with an internal neodymium bucking magnet for increased sensitivity, which extends the response out to 20 kHz. The highly pressed cone sandwiches paper with a layer of water-resistant polypropylene for increased stiffness and lower distortion.
