FAP8CXT 8" Compression Driver Coaxial Speaker System with 70.7V/100V-60W Transformer and 8 Bypass made by Atlas
This product is a true compression driver premium performance 70.7V / 100V tuned & ported 8" coaxial ceiling speaker system perfectly suited for many business music and public address applications -especially on applications where high ceilings require loudspeakers with increased efficiency and tighter pattern control.
The unit features a curvilinear, polypropylene cone for lower harmonic distortion, and a built-in crossover network for proper frequency transition between the two reproducers. This loudspeaker is factory assembled to an optimally tuned & ported deep drawn enclosure and includes a specially designed 60 Watt low saturation 70.7V / 100V transformer. A convenient front mounted selector switch allows tap selection without the need to remove the speaker from the ceiling. This tap selector switch also includes a transformer bypass setting for instances where the 8 FAP8CXT driver is to be direct coupled with a low impedance amplifier.
The FAP8CXT's 90 dispersion angle (in the 2kHz octave band) is perfect for higher ceiling applications where tighter pattern control is required. It has a Tight pattern control (not exceeding 90 ) is important for high ceiling applications. Loudspeakers exhibiting wider dispersion than 90 will exceed 6dB of drop off at the edge of the coverage pattern causing excessive SPL variances. Using more of the same wide coverage speaker in a high ceiling application to compensate only worsens the situation as comb filtering from multi-path arrivals will result.
