  • *NEW* DMA Drivers from Dayton Audio

    Hey everyone!

    Check out the new Dayton Audio DMA drivers and matching passive radiators here.

    Interesting drivers. I like the nice baskets, the addition of copper to the neo motors, and the few I looked at had what looks like very good linear response.

    The DMA105-4 has close to the same footprint as the Beston RT0002 tweeters - the tweeter is ~1mm thicker face plate. If the copper and the neo are doing their jobs, this could be an unusually high value matching midrange driver.

    Any plans to come out with round faceplate versions? Or introducing the frame style to larger diameter drivers? I bet a 7" using the DSA cone/motor on these baskets would make for a pretty nice combo.
    Don't listen to me - I have not sold any $150,000 speakers.

          Nice! I really like the 2 incher... I can see me making a super small Bluetooth stereo with that and a few PRs in the future.
          Im guessing the basket/frame is plastic of some sort?

            You would be correct, sir.
            Your results may vary.

              What does DMA stand for? And why are all the frames square, those look terrible.

                They are square to make them easily stack-able for line arrays... or at least, that's my interpretation.

                  Dual Magnet Aluminum I am guessing.

                    There was an advertisement for those drivers in Voicecoil Magazine a few months back. I am glad to see they are finally available.

                      Any chance we could see a cut-away view of the motor?
