The P Audio PA-D38 is a small format diaphragm compression driver designed for mid range and extended high frequency applications in two way professional sound reinforcement systems. The small format design is excellent for wide bandwidth applications and is ideal for medium sized sound reinforcement systems using 8 inch (203mm) and 10 inch (254mm) woofers. The driver has a rated bandwidth of 1kHz to beyond 20kHz. This wide bandwidth makes the PA-D38 ideal for many mid range applications as well as wide range ultra high frequency applications.

The PA-D38 is a Ferrite based permanent magnet system that features a 1.5 inch (38mm) diameter phenolic inpregnated diaphragm assembly. The driver features a mid band output rating of 105dB with a one watt input measured at one meter. This design features P Audio’s legendary high temperature systems to insure both high power handling and high reliability.

The PA-D38 features an industry standard 1 inch screw on style exit that allows the driver to easily mate to any high frequency horn with a standard 1 inch screw on mounting.
