The GC6500R includes – deep breath – the…Falcon Sonaweave Graphene Enhanced Nano-Platelet Cone deployed in the bass driver design…and relax

The use of Graphene allows the diaphragm to be, “…60% lighter and thinner than those of conventional drivers, with significantly improved rigidity, improved damping and a natural, well-controlled roll-off,” said the company.

Computer modelling led Falcon to choose an inverse Hypocycloid profile for the waveguide used by the GC6500R’s 25mm dome horn-loaded midrange driver, which has been re-engineered in-house. The ribbon tweeter has been modified by Falcon too.
