The Alpair 5 Generation 2 is a pure Free-to-air Single Suspension Full-Range audio driver. This new Alpair 5 is more advanced than its ﬁrst generation version. There is no suspension controlling the rear of the driver’s power-train (coil and motor sub-assembly). No magnetic damping ﬂuid, or any other type of secondary damping is used in this new design. The new 5 operates only using its allnew single front suspension. This design retains designer Mark Fenlon’s classical mechanical engineering approach to reduce mass and extend long throw operating capacity. Mark, along with Evan Yu and the engineering team spent several months of research to remove all restriction from the 5’s new ultra thin body coil. Traditional driver designs use a “spider”, a suspension device located behind the driver’s cone. Bonded to the coil, it physically restricts the coil’s ability to transfer acoustic signals to the driver’s cone. Other drivers use damping ﬂuid, springs or other devices, all of which produce similar losses. This new Alpair 5 completely removes all these restrictions; Its coil locates cleanly between the driver’s cone and motor sub-assembly, making the new 5 a pure free-to-air design
