The Alpair 7 Gen. 3 represents a large step forward in the design and production of "extended" fullrange audio drivers. In its size class, this Alpair 7 currently delivers the widest frequency range*. The usable range now extents to 32-kHz above 80dB, that?s higher than many tweeters! This Alpair 7 has an advanced damping systems such that it delivers a "near flat" response across its range. The 7 employs a rear ring-clamped suspension system and a new torque loaded rear suspension (spider). Both these components add pre-tension to the power-train. The result is improved linearity and damping on the moving components. The acoustic performance of this driver is solidly placed in the "purist-audiophile" category. Its cone and power-train are the most micro-resonance sensitive made by Markaudio to date. With the rear and front covers attached, the driver has a SPL of near 86dB while retaining an X-max of +4-mm available for peak non-rhythmic bass loads. In a optimised box design, the system can be made capable of operating from 40-Hz to 32-kHz, possibly a unique performance for a simple cone driver in its size and class. The off axis responses and central stereo image emitted from this Alpair 7 are possibly best in class. Its cone profile and under-hung front suspension allow for a clean wide acoustic image making it easier to optimse box positioning in most listening environments. The Alpair 7 Gen. 3 is near unique (if not totally unique). Its range, near flat response and special design features set it apart from other full-range driver of similar size.
