Extron Electronics is pleased to introduce the CS 123T SpeedMount Ceiling Speaker System, a patented low profile, plenum rated two-piece speaker system that provides an extremely wide 165° conical dispersion for flexibility in speaker spacing.
The system is designed for applications where high intelligibility and maximum coverage is desired in paging applications and low ceiling installations. The innovative system consists of the CS 120P plenum rated enclosure and a CS 3T full-range speaker cartridge.
The CS 120P plenum enclosure installs quickly into 2 ft x 2 ft or metric 600 mm x 600 mm suspended ceiling grids. It features a shallow 5-inch (12.7 cm) profile, which simplifies installation into congested ceiling spaces around piping and ducts.
The integrated tile bridge of the enclosure rests on the ceiling tile above the grid, evenly distributing the weight of the CS 120P and the CS 3T speaker cartridge. This avoids the need to assemble V-rails and C-rings, greatly reducing the number of installation steps and the chances of losing installation hardware.
The CS 3T speaker cartridge features a 3-inch (7.6 cm) full-range driver, and can be used in 70/100 volt or 8 ohm operation with a behind-the-grille, six position power selector switch. The cartridge installs quickly and easily into the CS 120P enclosure.
The CS 3T delivers full-range audio reproduction and a wide conical dispersion of 165 degrees for vocal clarity and broad coverage. The CS 3T is optimized for voice reproduction and paging applications. It features a power rating of 16 watts continuous pink noise and 32 watts continuous program capacity. The CS 3T features a magnetically attached grille and a thin-edged bezel for a refined appearance on the ceiling.
“The fast installing SpeedMount ceiling speaker system has quickly become a favorite of AV integrators, and we are pleased to offer our customers a choice between the wide frequency response of the two-way CS 1226T system or the wide coverage pattern for voice and paging offered with the new CS 123T system,” says Casey Hall, vice president of sales and marketing for Extron. “The vocal clarity and broad dispersion of the CS 123T are ideally suited for meeting spaces, office environments, and a range of other voice reinforcement or paging applications.”
The CS 123T is available as a complete assembly including a pair of CS 120P enclosures and a pair of CS 3T full-range speaker cartridges. The enclosures and speaker cartridges can also be purchased in pairs separately, so they can be delivered to low-voltage and AV system contractors.
