Community expands Distributed Design Series5 October 2011
Several new surface-mount models have been added to Community’s Distributed Design Series, which is said to have been well-received by installers since its launch last year.
The 5in DS5 is a two-way compact system, ideal for installations where space is a premium. For larger installations, the 8in DS8 provides higher sound pressure levels, higher sensitivity and greater bass extension. The 8in DS8SUB subwoofer complements the DS5 and DS8 full-range models with extended low frequency performance for musical applications.
The DS-Series is equipped with built-in autoformers that enable full output with 70V or 100V distribution lines. All models accommodate 8-ohm as well as 70V/100V applications with a convenient front-accessible power tap switch located behind a rotatable logo.
The DS5, DS8 and DS8SUB are available in standard black or white finishes.
Julia Lee, Community’s director of sales and marketing, commented: “We’ve received great response on the performance of our Distributed Design Series ceiling-mounted systems, but there are certainly applications where a surface-mounted system is more appropriate. Our new surface-mount DS line is designed to deliver the same voicing and performance as the ceiling models, along with a range of features to make the installer’s job easier and more efficient.”
