Hemp invades subwoofer market with a boom!

JVC hemp coneBoom…boom boom…boom  boom…boom

Leave it to the people at JVC to invade our ears and eco-friendly budgets with subwoofers that utilize hemp in the cones.  We have all heard it as we are driving down the road but little did I know that that thumping might be aided by industrial hemp. Well, good thing the people at JVC took care of that for all of us we can see the impact with our own eyes…

JVC Mobile Entertainment, a leading developer and manufacturer of sophisticated mobile, audio, and video products, offers 15” Arsenal Subwoofers, CS-AW8540 and CS-AW8520, featuring Kevlar Laminated Hemp-Fiber Cone and a 2-year warranty. The Arsenal subs feature Rapid-Fire Impedance Selector (Patented Technology), which easily changes the resistance rating of the subwoofer’s voice coil with a single motion switch.

Must I continue….

Eco-friendly Hemp Fiber reduces unwanted mid- and high-frequencies in subwoofers—like a natural low pass filter.

Arsenal Subwoofers and Component speakers include 10% HEMP fiber blended into each speaker cone and dust cap. Not only does HEMP fiber make the cone stronger, it also reduces internal loss within the speaker diaphragm which creates clearer sound. HEMP also acts like a low pass filter in speaker drivers and subwoofers – creating a natural low pass filter to eliminate unwanted frequencies in subs and help to smooth out the transition between driver and tweeter frequencies in Arsenal component speakers.

HEMP is an eco-friendly material used in clothing, rope, and even automobile manufacturing because of its tensile strength. Its manufacturing qualities make it a great material for speaker cones – so with the use of HEMP…JVC once again redefines the meaning of “High Fidelity!”

The Arsenal lineup of Subwoofers features 10 models, including the CS-AW6040, CS-AW6240, CS-AW7020, CS-AW7040, CS-AW7220, CS-AW7240, CS-AW8040, CS-AW8240, CS-AW8540, and CS-AW8520. These subwoofers range in class and size, from 10-15 inches, and feature two patent-pending technologies: the Multi-Mount Smart Trim Ring and the Dual Diametric Progressive Spider Woven Tinsel Lead as well as the patented Rapid-Fire Impedance selector terminal.

The Arsenal line of subwoofers feature patent-pending Dual Diametric Progressive Spiders with Woven Tinsel Leads. Included Thermal Transfer Technology transfers heat away from the voice coil to the woofer’s aluminum basket by connecting the motor structure to the basket, using a layer of heat transfer silicon. Patent-pending Multi-Mount Smart Trim Ring creates a clean installation appearance by concealing the mounting screws. Patent-pending Rapid-Fire Impedance Selector Speaker Terminal changes the voice coil impedance with one easy motion. Switch between Parallel, Series or Bi-Amp configurations without any additional wiring. Aluminum material reduces resonation within the subwoofer structure, which creates strong and clear basic output with Die-Cast Vented Aluminum Basket.

Each subwoofer in the Arsenal lineup also features a switch which toggles between parallel/series/independent wiring, and protection circuit with fuse for extra protection against current overages that cause blown voice coils.

Advanced technologies are incorporated into this lineup to produce better sound, along with high performance and usability. Multi-directionally woven dampers correct balance of speaker, even with terminals concentrated on one side. Eco-friendly Hemp Fiber reduces unwanted mid- and high-frequencies in subwoofers—like a natural low pass filter. Internal loss is reduced within the speaker diaphragm for pure fidelity sound. Models CS-AW8240 and CS-AW8040 have a drive cone made of Paper + Hemp* and Kevlar laminated Hemp fiber Cone. Models CSAW7240, CS-AW7220, CS-AW7040 and CS-AW7020 have a drive cone made of Paper +Hemp * and Glass-Fiber laminated cone structure. In addition, efficient heat dissipation is caused by die-cast aluminum heat sink.

*About 10 percent Hemp blended.

OTHER SHARED FEATURES:

* Aluminum Die-Cast Frame
* Air Vent Cooling System
