The FR1 is specifically designed to have an ultra-wide sound dispersion characteristic, creating much greater distribution of full frequency sound than many other speaker designs. Rodgers audio engineers combined two custom-designed drivers that incorporate the use of Kevlar® cone material, a wide dispersion silk dome tweeter, a specially designed and tuned constant power third order passive crossover network, and a new compact vented cabinet that embraces critical component placement and cabinet tuning. The use of ultra light and rigid Kevlar® cones enhances the accuracy and response of the critical mid-range frequencies, reduces cone flex-induced harmonic distortion, helps control unwanted resonances, and helps minimize peaks and dips in frequency response.
The SW6 features a compact vented cabinet using two flared ports, two recessed handles, and two custom-designed 12” woofers with long-fiber pulp cones; long throw, long lasting synthetic rubber surrounds; and large magnet structures weighing over 2.5 lbs each. The SW6 can be installed vertically or horizontally in corners, along walls, under platforms or stages, in homes or studios, or any other location requiring a compact but high quality passive subwoofer.
