The 1030M MCMA (Multi-Cell Micro-transducer Array) planar speakers from FPS are the ideal choice for in-wall, in-ceiling and some automotive applications and digital POS and signage. The 1030M speakers also work great as external flat panel television and PC speaker configurations.
All MCMA transducers are passive so external amplification is required. The 1030M speakers handle up to 75 watts RMS (150 watts max) at 8 ohms. The 1030M is the second largest MCMA transducer available with almost 93 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 the case of the 1030M there are 300 voice coils and 300 corresponding magnets.
Some of the benefits of using the 1030M speaker over a conventional cone speaker with similar specifications are; significantly less mounting depth and back volume is required, MCMA have minimal acoustic feedback, much faster transient response, dipole capability and high resistance to water and temperature.
