Perfect for foreground or background distributed sound applications in indoor or outdoor residential, commercial or recreational environments, the new compact, full-range 70-volt CA-800T loudspeaker was designed for those who know better than to expect mediocre output.
Building on the success of our popular CA-8T model which has been used in a countless number of high-profile installations all over the U.S. the CA-800T version features enhanced cosmetics added mounting flexibility and even better performance. For efficiency and reliability the CA-800T has been re-voiced and employs a high-power extended range low frequency driver. It features an 8-inch IMG cone woofer and 1-inch titanium dome tweeter coupled to a square-mouth 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix® Horn which allows the speaker to be mounted horizontally or vertically without affecting the coverage pattern.
Available in black or white this speaker has a durable UV-resistant all-weather enclosure that includes an internal multi-tap transformer with expanded range and a switchable direct 8-ohm bypass. The tap settings for the CA-800T at 70V are 60W 30W 15W 7.5W and 3.7W. The added 3.7W tap setting offers further placement flexibility. The settings for 100V are 60W 30W 15W and 7.5W. The included heavy gauge zinc C-bracket provides added mounting strength. It attaches to the enclosure’s integral “center-of-gravity balanced” threaded studs that are positioned inside the speaker and to the oversized knobs ensuring positive position-lock. Connections are provided via four-position barrier strips. This allows an installer to use two connectors for inputs and two for pass-throughs making it easier to daisy chain.
The CA-800T’s updated grille design stays securely fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation for increased weather resistance and years of maintenance-free protection regardless of the climate or environment. The speakers improved input cup allows for easier drainage and the added 3/8″-16 threaded insert for use with optional mounts offers better placement flexibility.
