It might seem strange to many listeners that a material like paper could have much to do with a product as solid and powerful as a Custom Theatre subwoofer. Nevertheless, paper plays a vital part in what they're hearing.
In our CT SW10, CT SW12 and CT SW15 subs, the bass driver diaphragms are constructed from a finely-tuned mix of paper pulp, Kevlar fibres and resin, which provides the stiffness needed to withstand the tremendous physical forces exerted by the pressures inside the cabinet.
