Control 16C/T is a full-range ceiling speaker consisting of a 165 mm (6.5 inch) high-tech cone driver and a 19 mm liquid cooled soft-dometweeter mounted in a vented, paintable baffle made of UV resistant UL94-V0 and UL94-5HB material, with a pre-attached blind-mount backcan for quick and easy installation. The speaker is designed to provide excellent sound quality for a wide variety of medium to high volume applications such as music cafes, business music systems, retail stores, music/paging systems, airports, reception/waiting rooms, lounges, courtrooms, convention centers, hotels, educational facilities,and more. The speaker delivers consistent sound quality for listeners located both off and on axis.
Blind-mount backcan for quick and easy install
Dual conduit/cable clamps
Combined 70V/100V and low impedance direct operation
50 Watts at 8Ω nominal setting
30W multi-tap at 70V/100V
62 Hz – 20 kHz bandwidth with wide 110° coverage
High 91 dB sensitivity for high maximum SPL
The high-technology 165 mm (6.5 in) low frequency driver is designed with a lightweight, high temperature anodized aluminum voice coilformer and high-temperature-grade voice coil for stable performanceand reliability under long-term/high-power working conditions. The butyl rubber surround provides long-term durability and excellent sonic damping while the polypropylene cone is water and humidity resistant.
The FEA-optimized motor construction and cone geometry, along with linear suspension spider design, allow for a smooth frequency response and more consistent off-axis performance. The 19 mm (3/4 in) high frequency driver features a highly damped and treated silk dome for clear and warm sound, a lightweight Kapton™ voice coil for better high frequency response and excellent reliability, low viscosity liquid cooling for power handling and reliability, and a wide dispersion waveguide design to produce wide coverage and smooth frequency response.
The removable locking connector has screw terminals for secure wire termination and “loop through” terminals. A dual strain relief assembly provides clamping for use with cable or flex conduit.
Ideal for a wide variety of projects, the Control 16C/T is switchable for use as either an 8 ohm low-impedance speaker or as part of a 70V or 100V distributed loudspeaker system with a 30W multi-tap transformer. The speaker comes complete with two tile rail supports, one C-ring support backing plate, cutout template, paint shield, and grille. A safety seismic attachment ring is provided on the top surface.
