The basic design of the loudspeaker hasn’t changed much in the past 50 years. On the contrary, many materials incorporated in loudspeaker design have improved dramatically. Back in the 50s and 60s, Alnico was the most common magnet used in loudspeakers. However, a shortage in materials and increased costs for Alnico during that time precipitated a shift to the widespread use of the ceramic magnets most of us are familiar with today.
The Neodymium Revolution
Just before the turn of this century, speaker manufacturers started seriously evaluating the potential benefits of using neodymium magnets in loudspeakers. Although neodymium magnets were expensive, they allowed loudspeaker motors to be as little as half the weight of comparable ceramic magnet motors. Prices of neodymium started coming down and interest in lighter weight speakers grew, as did neodymium speaker options.
Today, Eminence has become the industry leader in neodymium loudspeaker design. The Eminence Kappalite represents very lightweight, high performance loudspeakers without compromises in power handling, performance or reliability. Each product comes with a Seven Year Warranty against manufacturer’s defects.
