Community reveals new DS-Series30 November 2011
Community Professional is showing its new surface-mount loudspeaker range, the DS-Series, which is an expansion of its existing ceiling-mount Distributed Design Series. This new range comprises several high-output, low-profile models that deliver high quality audio and intelligibility. The 5in DS5 is a two-way compact system, designed for installations where space is a premium, while the 8in DS8 provides higher SPL and sensitivity, plus greater bass extension. The 8in DS8SUB subwoofer has been created to complement both full-range models, providing extended low-frequency performance. Each model is also equipped with built-in autoformers that enable full output with 70V or 100V distribution lines, and Community’s Infin-A-Ball multi-angle wall mounting bracket, which is prewired with a Euroblock connector to conceal wiring. DS-Series models are available in standard black or white finish. Target markets for the range include sports stadiums, houses of worship, swimming pools, bars and restaurants. Community is also showing three new products in its VLF Series: the dual 8in VLF208LV; the single 15in VLF115; and the single 18in VLF118. The VLF208LV has a frequency response down to 40Hz and an operating range to 30Hz, and is in a larger enclosure than the ultra-compact VLF 208. It is designed for applications that require the lowest frequencies from a slim profile design, and, like the VLF115 and VLF118 models, is available in portable and installation versions, the latter of which incorporates multiple M10 hang points.
