Tannoy has introduced the QCV Series, a new range of “open ceiling” hanging pendant loudspeakers, designed for applications such as airports, railway stations, malls and large double/triple height commercial floors.
The unique cylindrical form-factor has been conceived to meet the exacting demands of the architectural sector, minimizing the impact on aesthetics and allowing the systems designer to locate the loudspeakers discretely, at a desired height without regard to the physical ceiling height, and in a manner that won’t conflict with other suspended systems such as lighting fixtures and ventilation.
Available in black or white as standard and comprising two models - OCV 6 and OCV 8 - OCV Series is by design a full-bandwidth open-ceiling speaker system.
Each model is built around a mid-bass driver (6-inch or 8-inch respectively) with a coaxially-mounted 0.75-inch 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 enhances durability and provides long-term reliability, while the enclosure is IP54 rated for dust and water ingress, UV resistant – making it suitable for operating within high temperature and high humidity environments.
Both the OCV 6 and OCV 8 are equipped with a low insertion loss 60-watt line transformer easily configurable via a top-mounted rotary tapping switch, while 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 connections 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 – making installation a simple and time-efficient process.
The OCV Series is shipping now.
