B&C HCX Coaxial Loudspeakers
B&C Speakers’ HCX series coaxial loudspeakers include the 12HCX76 and 15HCX76 models. The HCX series features a top-of-category 3-inch voice-coil woofer, mated with a top-of-category 1.4-inch exit high frequency driver mounted on a newly designed 60-degree x 40-degree elliptical horn. The HCX series offers an all-in-one solution. While high power handling, high sensitivity, low distortion, and HF pattern control are a given, the HCX models still sound natural. Manageable frequency overlaps in the mid-band make crossover design a simple, but also offer the flexibility for designers to tune enclosures to their taste or application.
