The P Audio IMF-HP15W is a high output low frequency transducer. The new IMF-HP15W is an upgraded design that features many of P Audios new technologies and performance upgrades. The 15 inch (381mm) diameter piston will produce extremely high sound pressure levels at low and mid band frequencies and is ideal as a high level low frequency transducer in two way and three way sound reinforcement systems. The transducer is an excellent choice in both live sound and recorded music venues. The operating bandwidth of the IMF-HP15W is 45Hz to 3500Hz. The transducer uses high energy ferrite magnetics to achieve a very high acoustic output to weight ratio.
The IMF-HP15W employs a medium format 2.38 inch (60.5mm) diameter voice coil that provides an AES rated 300 watts of continuous power handling and a full 1200 watts of peak rated power handling when sufficient amplifier headroom is available. The IMF-HP15W utilizes P Audios under damper venting technology to improve transducer air flow and reduce turbulence under the damper and around the voice coil.
The voice coil design is bobbin wound geometry with P Audios precision round wire technology to maximize system conversion efficiency. The suspension has been designed specifically for high linear displacement and extended low frequency response. The transducer chassis is a heavy gauge stamped steel design that ensures a very high degree of structural integrity.
