The 1010M MCMA (Multi-Cell Micro-transducer Array) planar speakers from FPS are the ideal choice for in-wall, in-ceiling and automotive applications. The 1010M speakers also work great as external flat panel television and PC speakers.
The MCMA transducers are passive so external amplification is required. They handle up to 25 watts RMS (50 watts max) at 8 ohms. The 1010M is the third largest MCMA transducer available with almost 40 square inches of surface area the planar effect is very noticeable. FPS builds all their MCMA speakers by embedding an array of voice coils directly into the diaphragm that correspond to an array of powerful neodymium magnets. In this case there are 100 voice coils and 100 magnets.
Some of the benefits of using the 1010M speaker over a conventional cone speaker with similar specifications are; mounting depth and back volume, nominal acoustic feedback, faster transient response, dipole capability and high resistance to water and temperature.
