The Black Widow 1508-8 SPS BWX is a 15" 500 Watt Aes power rated driver
The BWX series uses a new cone that is a variation on the existing Kevlar® impregnated cones used on all Black Widows. The new cone is stronger and tougher, highly water resistant, and has a specially designed surround – a deep roll accordion design on the 15”, and an innovative asymmetrical-M style on the 12” that improves mid range clarity. The dust cap is also made of the same extremely strong material. Voice coil assemblies on the new drivers use the thermoset insulated aluminum or copper ribbon wire, bonded onto an incredibly durable, heat resistant polyimide composite former. The coil wires are solderless diffusion welded to high conductivity OFHC copper foil leads, which are embedded inside the former assembly and soldered to the tinsel leads with high temperature silver solder. The solder joint is then coated with a special thermally conductive silicone adhesive for encapsulation and heat dissipation.
This product is the replacement driver for the following models.
The 1508sps driver is an excellent
choice for general purpose sound reinforcement,
and is available in both
4 and 8 ohm versions. Enclosure size
is reasonable and bass / mid-bass
performance is strong. Its versatility
includes sealed and bandpass enclosure
The 1508cu produces amazing bass
performance in small enclosures,
along with flat mid-bass response for
an accurate, clean sound quality.
The 1508he is best used as the bottom
end of a full range enclosure. It
has very high efficiency for superior
output in the mid-bass and midrange.
However, for pure subwoofer
applications, the 1508sps or 1508cu
are better choices
This driver is used in the (IMPULSE 1015) enclosure
