Abaca Audio 6.5" High-End Woofer 8 ohm - AAW61A8

Composite speaker cone for less distortion and coloration and excellent damping characteristics
High loss rubber surround for long life and less reflected resonance peaks
High performance ferrite magnet
High power handling Kapton Voice coil former with heat-resistant SV wire
High density aluminum die-cast frame
Symmetric Motor Drive (SMD) technology
Designed and engineered in the USA

The design of AAW61A8 driver is based upon the benefit of an extended pole piece in a magnet system. Finite element analysis (FEA) simulation was also used to optimize the magnet structure and specifically to shape the pole piece to achieve symmetric flux distribution along travel path of the voice coil. This design provides better driving force linearity, reduces VC inductance modulation, and DC offset of the moving system at high power levels. The result is much less distortion and more effective VC cooling. The cone/surround design is optimized to achieve extended and balanced frequency response without apparent top end resonance. The back of the composite speaker cone (layered aluminum, foam, and fiber glass) is manually coated to maximize damping properties of the moving system. The massive aluminum die-cast frame has been developed to minimize parasitic structural resonances and dissipate VC heat rapidly.

AAW61A8 is a high performance driver with extended bass reproduction. This driver is an excellent performer even in bigger size cabinets so it can be used in top class floor-standing systems.

This woofer is a perfect match for the AAT418 Tweeter in a 2-way speaker cabinet.

5 of 5 Abaca Audio 6.5" High-End Woofer 8 ohm - AAW61A8 February 22, 2017
Reviewer: Jeff Benoit from Dublin, CA United States  
I bought some replacement woofers (6") a couple of years ago because my AR M4's rotted away. Too lazy to re-foam them I opted for some Speaker Works...Took a few weeks before they came alive, but when they did, I was impressed, so I purchased the AAW61A8s they had on sale got my second rotted pair... Needless to say I am extremely pleased. Just wish they had a 6" diameter option. The 6.5s were not plug-and-play, but I am hearing things never experienced. I will be back for more! Well done Speaker Works!
