9th April 2014
Fane would like to thank you for visiting our booth at Frankfurt Prolight + Sound 2014 (PL+S). It was a pleasure to meet everyone and introduce our latest new products and we received a lot of positive feedback from all our visitors and conducted many productive business discussions. With visitor numbers down slightly from last year's record breaking fair, the response still exceeded our expectations and we are confident that, in the coming weeks, we will conclude a number of exciting agreements initiated at PS+L. The Fane Stand at Frankfurt PS+L 2014 NEW COMPONENT DRIVERS FOR 2014 New product additions to the Fane range included the 12" Colossus 12XB and Colossus 12B bass drivers along with three 8" models, the Sovereign Pro 8BM bass mid, Sovereign Pro 8MN mid range, and Sovereign Pro 8-225 bass/ mid range drivers. The models on display were prototype versions full technical specifications and ordering/ sampling information will be available in the next few weeks.     The Fane Team FANE SYSTEMS REBRANDS AS FANE PRO AUDIO In addition to our core component loudspeaker range the new ST-Series, touring loudspeaker systems were on display giving live demos throughout the show and we received many positive comments about their high quality performance. Also we revealed our plans at the show to rebrand the 'Fane Systems' line to 'Fane Pro Audio'.  The rebrand will see the launch of a brand new website and identity intended to engage customers and enhance the brand, attracting new customers to our complete range loudspeaker systems. Fane Pro Audio Systems are all loaded with customised Fane drive units which have been carefully selected and perfectly matched to the enclosure to achieve incredible levels of performance. Fane component speakers are built to the tightest tolerances to ensure high consistency of performance and maximum reliability. For more information on Fane Pro Audio please visit the new website at www.faneproaudio.comOnce again, thank you for the time you reserved for us during the PL+S 2014. We look forward to seeing you at the 20th anniversary show in April next year.      The new Fane Pro Audio 'ST Series' touring cabs

APPLICATION NOTES
  • Highest grade Y35 ferrite magnet structure.
  • Low interference flux path.
  • Aluminium demodulation ring.
  • Fibre loaded, UK manufactured cone offering increased strength, durability and performance.
  • 64 mm peak to peak maximum linear excursion.

The Prime 18XS is intended for use as a high-output bass driver in multi way systems and features a 4 inch ‘sandwich’ (inside and outside windings) voice coil, immersed in a symmetric magnetic field yielding increased linearity and lower distortion. This, coupled with laminated silicone suspensions, a large Xmax of 12mm with peak to peak travel of 60mm, ensures fast accurate bass at high levels of excursion. The cone membrane, manufactured from polycellulose, is much stronger and more durable than conventional paper pulp alternatives. This allows the driver to combine high-sensitivity with the structural integrity required to produce undistorted low frequencies at extreme sound pressure levels. The driver handles 1200 Watts (A.E.S.) continuous and can cope with peaks in excess of 4800 Watts. This is due to advanced thermal management in the form of vented die-cast chassis and increased motor system venting. These measures effectively remove heat from the voice coil, resulting in extremely low-power compression. The Prime 18XS exhibits 100 dB sensitivity and can deliver bass down to 29 Hz (-6 dB) in a 200 litre ported enclosure.


  • Please enquire about alternative impedances. 
  • A.E.S. power handling test. Pink noise bandpass filtered at 12 dB per octave with cutoff frequencies of 30 Hz and 300 Hz. Driver mounted in free air, test signal applied at rated power for two hours. 
  • Please note that the frequency response measurements are supplied for comparison only and are not a measure of the low frequency performance which may be achieved in a fully optimised system.
