Neodymium Magnet
First neodymium-magnet Pro Audio compression driver and woofer
Neodymium magnets and dual voice coils provide peak performance at a fraction of the weight of conventional drivers. JBL’s next generation neodymium compression drivers deliver stunningly accurate high frequencies through a new 1.5" annular polymer diaphragm design.

Neodymium's magnetic properties allow a few ounces to replace pounds of conventional magnet material. While other speaker manufacturers may use neodymium, JBL engineers created a design that reduces the massive (and heavy) steel top plates,back plates, and pole pieces that complete the "magnetic circuit".
