The revolutionary weather resistant BWX WR series of woofers have been designed to perform at peak levels in outdoor environments. These weather resistant drivers adhere to the familiar features of Black Widow products: cast aluminum frames, replaceable basket assemblies, Rubatex gaskets and high reliability, spring loaded terminals are all used.

The BWX series uses a cone that is a variation on the existing Kevlar impregnated cones used on all Black Widows. This cone is stronger and tougher, highly weather resistant, and has a specially designed surround. The dust cap is also made of the same extremely strong material. Voice coil assemblies on the weather resistant drivers use the thermoset insulated aluminum or copper ribbon wire, bonded onto an incredibly durable, heat resistant polyimide composite former.
The coil wires are solderless diffusion welded to high conductivity OFHC copper foil leads, which are embedded inside the former assembly and soldered to the tinsel leads with high temperature silver solder. The solder joint is then coated with a special thermally conductive silicone adhesive for encapsulation and heat dissipation.
The voice coil assembly is bonded to the weather resistant cone and super tough nylon composite spider using a thermoset epoxy originally developed for attaching nose cones to ICBM missiles – truly an aerospace grade adhesive. The spider and surround are bonded to the frame with a high strength toughened adhesive. For best performance results use BWX magnet structures. The BWX WR series replacement baskets will fit on standard BW magnet structures.
