EAW designed the CIS400 two-way ceiling-mounted bass reflex speaker system with a 6.5in. LF cone paired with 1in. dome tweeter for 110-degree conical coverage. It has four power tap settings in 70V operation and three in 100V mode, set with a recessed rotary switch on the front bezel. The backcan is zinc-coated steel, and it includes cam-style installation clamps in addition to a recessed Euroblock input connector with a detachable mating plug. The unit may also be used in a 16Ω configuration for low impedance amps by setting a second rotary switch.
For extended bass response in tight sound environments, the EVID C8.2/C8.2LP 8in. two-way coaxial speaker from Electro-Voice can handle 8Ω, 70V, or 100V systems and deliver 50Hz-20kHz (±10dB). The 8in. polypropylene LF cone and 1in. Ti Mylar laminate dome tweeter are contained in a steel enclosure with a UL94V-0 rated baffle and bezel. The overload-protected system power-handling capacity is 100W, and the front panel has a mode/wattage selector. A tile bridge and mounting ring are included and the unit has a white, semi-gloss grille.
Extron’s SoundField SF 26X two-way open backcan ceiling speaker features a 6.5in. woofer coupled to a 3/4in. ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter for 50Hz-20kHz (-10dB) frequency response and 50W continuous power handling capacity. The 8Ω system provides 110-degree conical dispersion and it includes internal driver overload protection. The thin bezel, spring-loaded locking arms and magnetically attached grille simplify installation; there is an optional ceiling-mount kit available. The grille and bezel may be painted to match the room décor.
JBL has equipped the Control 328CT 8in. coaxial ceiling speaker with 250W power handling and a high-slope crossover network for high SPL and consistent coverage. Capable of operating in 8Ω or 70/100V mode, the unit provides a frequency response of 45Hz-18kHz (-10dB) and a 120-degree conical coverage area. The coaxial point source design includes a Kevlar-reinforced 8in. woofer mounted along with a JBL 2412H-1HF compression driver, which features a pure titanium diaphragm for high sensitivity and long life. It also has a diamond surround for resonance control and ferrofluid for increased power handling.
Quick and easy installation is a key feature of the IC-650-T from Klipsch with its tile bridge and optional Mud Ring kit. The system can operate in 70/100V or in low impedance 8Ω mode by using a bypass switch on the front baffle. It combines a 6.5in. woofer with a 3.5in. round XT modified Tractrix Horn to handle 80W power while delivering 50Hz-20kHz (±4dB) and putting out 106dB at 1M. The integrated backcan has a terminal strip connector, and the multi-tap transformer settings range from 7.5W to 60W.
Kramer Electronics’ SPK−C612 closed backcan ceiling speaker includes a 6.5in. polypropylene cone woofer with rubber surround and a 1in. Mylar dome tweeter. Together they have a 55Hz-20kHz frequency response and a power handling rating of 60W maximum. Certified for indoor use, the SPK-C612 is 7in. deep and operates either in low impedance or 70/100V mode with four power settings from 3.7W to 30W. Kramer Electronics has designed the unit with a dispersion coverage angle of 80 degrees and a frequency response of 55Hz-20kHz.
