By PSW Staff • April 30, 2013 The new Commercial Design Series is a comprehensive family of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers. Community Professional Loudspeakers introduces the new Commercial Design Series, a comprehensive family of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers designed to meet the needs of installations requiring high performance at a competitive price. Commercial Design models deliver a cost-competitive choice of 4.5-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch driver sizes, while retaining Community’s legendary sonic quality, exceptional speech intelligibility and proven reliability. The entire Commercial Design family features uniform sound quality throughout the series, providing excellent consistency from model to model. The Commercial Design Series was designed to blend seamlessly with Community’s premium high performance Distributed Design family of ceiling, surface mount and pendant loudspeakers in a combined installation. In fact, Commercial Design utilizes many of the same technologies as Distributed Design, including real compression drivers and Tru-Phase phase plugs for high output and low distortion. Commercial Design ceiling models also incorporate labor-saving installation innovations like Community’s exclusive Drop-Stop technology, while the use of compression drivers and proprietary LF transducers results in higher sensitivity and higher maximum output than competitors’ models in a similar price range. All Commercial Design models feature Euroblock input connectors, Community’s exclusive external loop-through wiring design, weather-treated drivers, and corrosion-resistant, dual-layer, powder-coated grilles. Ceiling model options include low-profile 4.5-inch, standard profile 4.5-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch formats. The 6.5-inch full-range C6 is also available in an optional black finish for restaurants, bars, nightclubs, or any installation requiring an off-the-shelf black ceiling mount system. Surface mount options include full-range 4.5-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch loudspeakers in elegant black or white finishes. A Vari-Tilt yoke mounting bracket is included, which allows low profile mounting and precise aiming over a broad pan-tilt range. The surface mount CS4, CS6 and CS8 have passed compliance testing for MIL-STD-810G and can be used in outdoor direct exposure applications. Finally, the 6.5-inch full-range CP6 pendant loudspeaker is available for open architecture spaces or any location where a stylish pendant form factor is desired. Available in black or white and utilizing the same components as the C6 ceiling model and CS6 surface mount model, the CP6 can be used in a wide variety of speech and music applications. The ceiling systems are ETL listed to comply with UL1480, UL2043 and CSA60065, while the pendant loudspeaker conforms to UL1480 as well. All Commercial Design models can be painted to match room décor and are equipped with a built-in autoformer for selectable 8 ohm or 70V/100V operation. The Commercial Design Series from Community provides an affordable solution to unobtrusively provide even coverage and great sound quality from zone to zone throughout an entire venue.
