    Wavecor Speaker Driver - TW013WA01 - 13mm Neodymium Textile Tweeter - 4 Ohm

    TW013WA01 is a very compact high performance tweeter that is ideal either as a super tweeter in high-end Hi Fi speakers or as tweeter in very small compact 2-way systems. Despite being designed for ultimate high frequency performance no compromise has been accepted at the lower frequencies either. The TW013WA01 incorporates an external ring neodymium magnet, which allows effective venting through the centre pole to a rear volume. It means that the TW013WA-01 offers a very low resonance frequency for its size - even lower than many larger tweeters.



    • 13 mm design for best high frequency extension and off-axis frequency response
    • Internal volumes and rear venting chamber for low resonance frequency and low distortion
    • Precision-coated textile diaphragm for improved consistency and high-frequency extension
    • Optimized dome shape for ultrahigh frequency cutoff
    • Vented voice coil former for reduced distortion and compression
    • Copper-clad aluminium voice coil wire offering lower moving mass for improved efficiency and transient response
    • High-stability ferro fluid for increased power handling
    • Flexible lead wires for higher power handling and larger excursion
    • Gold plated terminals to prevent oxidation and ensure long-term reliable connection
    • Delivered with foam gasket attached for hassle-free mounting and secure cabinet sealing

    Note 1 Measured in infinite baffle.
    Note 2 Tested in free air (no cabinet, no baffle). Note 3 Measured using a semi-constant current source, nominal level 2 mA.
    Note 4 Measured at 25 deg. C
    Note 5 It is generally a rough simplification to assume that loudspeaker transducer voice coils exhibit the characteristics of an inductor. Instead it is a far more accurate approach to use the more advanced model often referred to as the “Wright empirical model”, also used in LEAP-4 as the TSL model (www.linearx.com), involving parameters Krm, Erm, Kxm, and Exm. This more accurate transducer model is described in a technical paper (PDF) here.
    Note 6 Measured before burn in. The unit is not burned in before shipping.
