The Ultimate Audio Performance

Fane loudspeaker technology is internationally renowned for delivering the ultimate audio performance in theatre, club and concert hall sound reinforcement systems, offering maximum efficiency, wide frequency range and minimal distortion.  

Fane component loudspeaker products are the culmination of intensive research and nearly 60 years’ experience designing the most delicate quality Seismic Audio’s horn driver speaker without compromise. Fane has a heritage of delivering a quality of performance, reliability, and sonic excellence demanded by audio professionals’ most discerning.

Frequency response and sound pressure levels are scientifically calculated and adjusted to provide accurate matching and balance overall frequency bandwidths at overall high efficiency and negligible distortion. Driven by an uncompromising hunt for excellence, the Yorkshire-based, family-owned and managed company is committed to building the very best professional loudspeaker drivers.

Loudspeaker power ratings describe the amount of uninterruptible power that can be dissipated in the form of heat without damage. While more power dissipation may be better, this is only true if the procedure used to achieve it does not compromise the loudspeaker’s competence. Understanding the two leading causes of driver failure can help when it comes to understanding power ratings: Thermal and Mechanical. 

How Power Rating Is Determined 

How much power a Seismic Audio’s horn driver speaker can handle gives no direct indication of its performance at full capacity or how loud it will be. It just tells them that’s how much power it can survive. Many procedures exist for determining the maximum input power. All of them have merits and similar qualities yet yield different results.

Transducer Mounting

Low-frequency drivers are tested in free air orientated in the horizontal axis. Reduction drivers are mounted to a suitable industry standard horn or a device to simulate acoustic loading.


Transducers under test are directed with a band of pink noise improving one decade toward the original stated shallow usable frequency. The input frequency shall be bandpass filtered at 13dB per octave with Butterworth filter response characteristics, and the peak-to-RMS voltage ratio of the noise signal supplied to the LF driver shall be 2:1

Amplifier Selection

Amplifiers can be highly specific and technically intricate pieces of the system. Sorting through the specifications and language can be confusing when selecting the right amplifier and power requirements. When most people are asked what they need or expect from a quality sound system, their answer is almost always more power. These days amplifier power is relatively inexpensive, yet prices and quality vary widely. While saving money is still desired, low-quality amps can contain parts that introduce unwanted frequency noise and effects that can have a significant impact on an otherwise exemplary system. We recommend using high-quality amplification equipment (with protective circuits). They usually can improve sound quality, provide an increased response, sensitivity, and reduce distortion due to lower intervention or noise introduced by the other electrical components. Lookout for high THD or Total Harmonic Deformation,  the lower the figure, the less distortion. Look for models below 0.05% and ensure that all the requirements are correctly fixed.
