New pendant loudspeakers from Tannoy8 June 2011
The OCV Series of ‘open ceiling’ hanging-pendant loudspeakers will be unveiled at InfoComm 2011 ahead of expected shipping in August.
The new products have been engineered specifically for applications where high quality audio coverage is required in high or open-ceilinged spaces, including airports, railway stations, malls and more. The cylindrical form-factor has been devised to meet the demands of the architectural sector, minimising the impact on aesthetics and allowing the systems designer to locate the loudspeakers discretely.
Available in black or white as standard and comprising of two models – the OCV 6 and OCV 8 – OCV Series is by a full-bandwidth open-ceiling speaker system. Each model is built around a mid-bass driver (150 mm (6”) or 200 mm (8") respectively) with a coaxially-mounted 19 mm (0.75”) high frequency section – all mounted in the cylindrical steel enclosure with mild steel powder coated grille.
The mineral-loaded polypropylene cone material and nitrile rubber surround of the driver assembly are provided to enhance durability and ensure long-term reliability. Featuring IP54 ratings, the OCV 6 and OCV 8 are equipped with a low insertion loss 60W line transformer configurable via a top-mounted rotary tapping switch. Audio connection is catered for via an adjacent euroblock connector. Both connector and tapping switch are protected by a rubber weather boot which fits securely in place after connection has been made.
Tannoy provides all the required hardware for hanging as standard, including steel wires, gripple speed clamp and 3/8” threaded rod adapter.
