Exotic W8
X2-08
EXOTIC
The Exotic W8 is an 8 inch woofer-midrange driver designed for smooth, wide frequency response, high
sensitivity and low distortion.
The special paper cone is embedded with papyrus fibres to optimize stiffness and damping.
A special foam rubber surround reduces mass by 40% compared to conventional rubber surrounds, resulting in
higher sensitivity and excellent damping properties. Unlike most plastic foam materials, this material is stable
and will offer decades of trouble-free operation.
A new and proprietary spider design dramatically improves the performance of this critical suspension part.
By combining an extremely open weave with a new resin formulation, all noises normally generated by
the friction of the threads rubbing together are virtually eliminated. Additionally, the open weave is highly
acoustically transparent, minimizing the reflections and resonances associated with conventional spider
designs.
A high temperature copper voice coil is wound on a rigid, non-conductive glass fibre former.
High quality H2 lead-out wires eliminate noise due to roping and resonances.
The magnet system uses an Alnico V ring magnet for high sensitivity and excellent stability.
Massive copper rings above and below the magnet gap lower distortion due to eddy currents and flux
modulation. A hand-turned phase plug made from ash offers optimal radiation conditions for the critical mid
frequency band.
A stiff and stable injection moulded zinc basket keeps the critical components in perfect alignment. Generous
windows both above and below the spider reduce sound reflection, air flow noise and cavity resonances to a
minimum.

Exotic T35
X3-06
EXOTIC
The Exotic T35 is a classic dome midrange tweeter with high sensitivity and a smooth,
extended frequency response.
A coated fabric dome with integral surround manufactured by Dr. K. Müller in Germany
ensures excellent performance and consistency. This supplier was among the first in the
world to offer fabric dome diaphragms, and did produce the diaphragm for the famous
1.5” Dome Tweeter H087, developed by Seas in 1968.
A high efficiency Alnico V ring magnet in a carefully designed system contributes to
high sensitivity and low distortion. A large and well damped cavity in the pole ensures a
low resonance frequency and smooth response.
A generously underhung 35mm voice coil wound from copper-clad aluminum wire
further enhances the sensitivity. Flexible lead-out wires and venting holes in the
aluminum coil former help reduce noise to a minimum.
A large diameter 7mm thick precision machined aluminum front plate with moderate
horn loading ensures linear frequency response and represents an extremely stable
platform for the magnet system and the moving parts.
