The Z v.5 is the second step up in our "ultra-high excursion" subwoofer lineup after the X v.2 series and replaces the world-famous Z v.4 series. The 10, 12, 15, and 18" models all feature our custom tooled and patented frames (US Patent Numbers D691596, D691597, D691598, and D741841).

We mate these new platform frames to a triple stacked 234mm (9.21”) diameter motor structure with a total magnet stack height of 102mm (4.01”) featuring a hyper-extended pole and extreme clearances (allowing over 4" p-p travel before mechanical bottom effectively making it bottomless). Compared to the X v.2 motor both the top & back plates are thicker allowing for even more magnetic strength and excursion potential.

This motor drives a 3" diameter 4-Layer Flat Wire Aluminum Coil wound on a thick aluminum former to incredible levels of excursion. The Z v.5 now uses the same voice coil as the NS v.3 series in the stock configuration – which means it is now a much longer 4-layer compared to a shorter 8-layer found in the Z v.4 series. The 4-Layer coil is able to shed heat faster, has a much lower inductance, and has less mass all while allowing for a higher linear excursion and thus significantly less distortion. We leveraged the much larger motor to keep total motor force similar to the Z v.4 Rev.2 while also having all of the other advantages listed prior. We do also offer an optional 8-layer coil that offers a significantly higher motor force factor & thus a lower Qts.

Compared to the Z v.4 Rev.2 we also increased the thickness of the Magnet ID shorting ring by 33% to further reduce static inductance and inductive distortion over strong. Based on our years of experience with the Z v.4 series we improved the voice coil ventilation to be even more effective and feature reduced turbulence in order to reduce voice coil temperatures & increase reliability.
