The beryllium ribbon tweeter which improved ribbon tweeter program transfer-R 7A, and was developed.

It is a whole surface drive system which the whole diaphragm surface is the same phase, and also receives driving force uniformly.
Since the vibration portion itself is an actuator, very light vibration system without futility can be constituted, and the linearity which was easy to move a diaphragm and was excellent has been realized.

As a diaphragm material for ribbons, it is the lightest-weight, moreover the beryllium of a high rigidity is adopted, and a high efficiency and input-proof -ization are realized.
Furthermore, since the ribbon is fabricated by the original process to the pattern of right 6-sided pyramids and it does not become a linear line at all about a cutting plane in length, width, slant, and which orientation, it has an anxious firm structure of bending which is not. And the exact waveguide-plunger motion is realized by preparing the big edge of compliance in the termination of the rigid-body fraction of a ribbon, and also directing in the shape of a sandwich by a silicon elastic body.

Alnico 750 is adopted as a magnet.
A uniform magnetic-flux distribution is secured by the density of flux density 7,400G., and the transient is raised sharply.

The low inductance power-feeding scheme which reduced the inductance to a super-high region sharply is adopted.
This suppresses an occurrence of few inductances of a power-feeding part, and the energetics of a high region is raised.

The wide band and the matching transformer of a low-loss design which made oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper foil the multilayer sandwich volume are adopted.
The adoption with a linear initial permeability property of a permalloy core has realized high resolution.

The gilding treatment is performed to the termination.

The tone quality was pursued and the protection network with the fuse of an oxygen-free-high-conductivity-copper cap is adopted.

The table-lamp base which can be arranged as it is is attached on a cabinet.
