950-8B is a 15-inch (38cm) Woofer equipped with a high-heat-resistance voice coil,It is 2 way speaker unit which consisted of Sloat who penetrates the center, a flower pedal (petal) type phon, and a 1-inch compression driver and which inherits the duplex (Duplex) technology of the Altec Lansing tradition.
The peculiar flower pedal phone has a constant directivity response pattern of 90 nominal value as it is also horizontal/vertical. Furthermore, since it becomes the form near a quadrangle to the inclination range form of a general phon being an ellipse form, it is possible to obtain the same sound quality as an axis top over the large range of listening area.

The enclosure serves as computer simulation based on a Thiele & Small theory, and a bass-reflex type designed by the hearing by the skilled engineer.
Plywood is used for a material at 18mm.
