Community introduces Commercial Design installation loudspeaker series30 April 2013
Community Professional Loudspeakers is introducing the new Commercial Design Series, a comprehensive family of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers designed to meet the needs of installations requiring high performance at a competitive price. Commercial Design models offer a choice of 4.5in, 6.5in and 8in driver sizes, and deliver Community’s renowned sonic quality, clear speech intelligibility and proven reliability. The Commercial Design family is said to feature uniform sound quality throughout the series, providing excellent consistency from model to model.
The Commercial Design Series has been designed to be installed alongside Community’s Distributed Design family of high-performance ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers. For this reason, Commercial Design uses many of the same technologies as Distributed Design, including real compression drivers and Tru-Phase phase plugs for high output and low distortion. Commercial Design ceiling models also incorporate labour-saving installation innovations such as Community’s exclusive Drop-Stop technology, while the use of compression drivers and proprietary LF transducers results in higher sensitivity and higher maximum output than competitors’ models in a similar price range.
All Commercial Design models feature Euroblock input connectors, Community’s own external loop-through wiring design, weather-treated drivers, and corrosion-resistant dual-layer powder-coated grilles. Commercial Design ceiling models are ETL listed to comply with UL1480, UL2043 and CSA60065, while the pendant model conforms to UL1480. Commercial Design surface mount models have passed compliance testing for MIL-STD-810G and include a low-profile multi-angle pan-tilt mounting bracket for precise aiming over a broad pan-tilt range. All Commercial Design models can be painted to match room décor and are equipped with a built-in autoformer for selectable 8 ohm or 70V/100V operation.
Community says that the Commercial Design Series is an affordable solution that unobtrusively provides even coverage and great sound quality from zone to zone throughout an entire venue.
