Finally a real broadband !!!

AJL05, 27.12.2015
Finally a real broadband !!!

We do not see it on the pictures, but this speaker has a third smaller cone, and it is he who must make all the difference at the top of the spectrum.

Originally I bought this loudspeaker to replace large disco 200 fane tapes that I bought about 30 years ago!
The disco 200 was backed up by Fane HF 250 tweeters cut very high because the disco 200 went up at the time up to 14000 hertz, so to really have good treble, it needed a little help on top.
The result for the time was already really impressive, I had even equipped a small nightclub with this material.

When I mounted the Sovereign 12-250TC, after listening, I disconnected the tweeters because these wide bands were enough to pass the treble, which in addition are very clear.
My caissons of the time were only 53 liters, and they lacked a little bass.
So I remade my boxes without location for the tweeters and based on a design of subwoofer of about 70 liters with a laminar vent of 8cm tuned to 50 hertz, frequency of resonance of Fane Sovereign 12-250TC.
Result: a case of 17 kilos, easy to carry with a SOUND EXHAUST !!!
The sound is much better than with my old crates.
The curves on the paper are true! Great broadband speakers that really pass all the audible spectrum. They climb well to the 17000 hertz announced, and even a little beyond because the fall of the curve is not brutal.
As for the bass, my speakers go down well too, and can be used alone for evenings up to about 100 people. Beyond, they can be exploited in acute mediums seconded by good subwoofers.
We can therefore use these loudspeakers even for ensembles of several thousand watts!

As a comparison, I have audiophony speakers A15, which are 3-way speakers with a 38cm boomer, a horn medium and compression acute.
My speakers equipped with Fane Sovereign 12-250TC only greatly exceed the audiophony both in quality and in quantity !!! The sound is clearer and the performance better.

Other significant advantages:
No filter, so no losses.
No overlap problems at cutoff frequencies since no filter and all the sound comes out of the same transducer.
More tweeters that risk to grill if you force a little too much on the treble.
A single speaker of very reasonable price that does as much work as a complex more surely more expensive and more fragile.

I think to use this speaker model for all my sound systems as much as possible.
I found no other speaker covering such a broad spectrum with such a performance.

To buy without moderation !!! :)
Hopefully Fane will keep the Sovereign 12-250TC long in its catalog, except that it will be replaced by a more powerful model.

Good speaker alternative for Monitorbox / Fullrange Kombo

Holger8111, 13.08.2014
I have a small Solton 12 "active box.
It is equipped with an old crafte TC 12/150 severed with a crossover for piezo horn TLC 6. The sound was me to last musty, somehow "occupied".
Since I was really satisfied with the Fane 15 "souvereign pro for our bassbox, I found this DualCone Speaker.

I can follow the two previous reviews.
The sound is now clearer, more differentiated, but also somewhat bass weaker, perhaps after a certain Einspielzeit comes even more pressure.

Since I continue to use the crossover at 4000 Hz, I can not take advantage of the upper frequency range, but the tweeter supports discreetly the transition range. Despite the soft, even higher frequencies pass through the Duakcone.
Will perhaps try to separate the piezo, or run the Fane times directly without switch, although you can leave it so synonymous.

Addendum: Somehow, the middle range was indefinitely undefined and I have the speaker directly connected - without crossover.
Ah, the sound is now much clearer, more natural. The heights almost already present; The bass range is slender but accentuated, even at higher volumes.
Incredible ... for a broadband speaker!

In summary, one can say that the speaker evaluates effectively simple monitors or favorable full-power boxes. Straight boxes with (bad) piezo (the TLC6 is just still) or old wide bands can be upgraded or replaced with it perfectly.
