Precision Devices transducers feature innovative design and state-of-the-art material technologies. More than just the result from decades of acoustic research and development, knowledge and expertise.
Our R&D team use FEA (finite element analysis), along with state-of-the-art modelling and design software to ensure each component and, ultimately, the final product performs to its fullest potential. High-level investment in this area means we continue to develop and innovate, pushing the boundaries in acoustic design, and material technology.
Although measured performance is the goal of all professional audio development, science alone can never establish the quality of a loudspeaker. Therefore, following in-depth scientific analysis we subject all products and advancements to extended listening tests. It is only by doing so that we are able to satisfy the ultimate reference – the human ear.
Voice Coils & Formers
Being the heart of any loudspeaker, we don’t cut don’t cut corners in this vital area. Quality of materials, design and assembly are the key here. Unlike many manufacturers we produce many of our coil designs in-house.
Our proprietary coil designs and manufacturing process are carefully calculated to result in ultimate power handling, longevity and mechanical stability at high operating temperatures. We use a variety of former materials to produce numerous coil designs ranging from 1.5” to 8”, using a variety of precision-wound wire types, most often copper or aluminium. The assembly is then cured to ensure rigidity, essential for greater strength and maximisation of energy transmission.
For maxiumum strength, superior power handling, reliability and mechanical stability.
A key process where we have chosen component integrity over speed.
Inside/ Outside Windings
Coil windings are applied to the outer and inner surface of the former material. By creating a larger surface area, passive heat disspiation and power handing characteristics are greatly improved.
Active Cooling and enhanced airflow around the coil and coil gap is provided by harnessing the natural motion of air generated by the speaker cone assembly when in use. By using specially positioned vent holes punched in the coil former in combination with motor system and chassis venting efficiently dissipates heat.
The Pinnacle of Precision Performance.
Innovation and Research
With decades of experience and knowledge our engineering team understand driver design and behaviour, yet remain focussed on further research into sound reproduction. High-level investment in this area means we continue to develop and innovate, pushing the boundaries in acoustic design and material technology.
From the drawing board to computer simulations and acoustic analysis, we are equipped with latest hardware and computer software tirelessly refining our products and production processes. Cutting-edge materials are carefully investigated and developed to offer the best mechanical and acoustic performance for the intended application of any transducer.
Specifications You Can Rely On
Our team uses the latest Klippel KA3 Analyser, Audio Precision APX and NTi test systems for loudspeaker validation, detailed analysis, development and ‘end-of-line’ quality control testing. You can be sure that our published specifications are reflected in our production.
Development and Quality Control
Klippel Scanning Vibrometer (SCN) and Suspension Part Measurement (SPM) systems mean that not only are we are able to develop highly-optimised software components but also actively control manufacturing consistency by monitoring the quality of incoming component parts.
The Ultimate Reference
Following extensive lab tests, to ensure our products deliver the sharpest sound and clearest detail. They are subjected to final listening tests before approval by our team and panel of select partners and acoustic specialists whose input makes sure each model remains true to the PD design DNA — quality craftsmanship, reliability and unrivaled performance.
