Seas Exotic F8/8 Loudspeaker driver SEAS of Norway Launches New EXOTIC 8-Inch Full-Range Driver. Norwegian High-End loudspeaker manufacturer SEAS has introduced the new F8 Full-Range 8" driver - the first product in its new EXOTIC product range. SEAS Exotic F8 full-range driver bridges the past with the future, combining traditional design with advanced development tools and state-of-the-art materials. Senior development engineer Bjørn Børja explains- SEAS began producing full-range drivers in the early 1950s for the European radio and high fidelity industry. Much of what we learned from building those drivers still remains valid. Today, there is a small, but dedicated group of enthusiasts who value the simplicity, high efficiency, and coherency of sound that a good full range driver can produce. Applying both our experience and our modern laboratory development tools, has allowed us to produce the most advanced full-range driver available in the market today. The F8 boasts many new components, developed specifically for this driver. A lightweight paper cone embedded with papyrus fibers gives an extremely smooth, extended frequency response. A powerful Alnico magnet system with a long gap is mated to a short, under-hung voice coil for linear performance and high sensitivity. A new surround made from lightweight foam rubber provides superior damping to corrugated paper surrounds, while maintaining very low moving mass. And finally, an all-new spider design using an extremely open weave impregnated with a special resin, virtually eliminates distortion caused by friction noise and reflection.
