8” 2-WAY COAXIAL
The easy to install CS801 is a full-range ceiling loudspeaker that incorporates an injection molded carbon fiber woofer with a butyl rubber surround and diffraction-less aluminum dome Ferrofluid cooled tweeter. This patent pending pivoting tweeter allows for deeper penetration into the room and a concentrated sound to the sweet spot.
This revolutionary combination provides superior and more natural sound for both foreground and background applications. In addition the CS80 incorporates a 3-position equalization switch, one each for bass and treble to fine-tune the acoustics and allow for various room surfaces. The Infinite Baffle design makes it the ideal choice for typical application in open beam attic or enclosed ceilings.
Driver Material: Injection Molded Carbon Fiber
• This material is injection molded in a plastic injection molding machining. The material itself contains cross-linked fibers of carbon fiber.
• This material is very stiff with low mass. It is a neutral sounding material that has great midrange response and bass response.
• This is a difficult material to work with. The cross-linked carbon fiber if not processed correctly can produce a driver cone that is not of even density. This results in distorted midrange. Very few manufacturers use this material because of the processing challenges during the molding process. We have several years experience in perfecting the processing and it results in a superior cone material at a cost just above an entry level product with enhanced performance.
Tweeter Material: Aluminum Dome Tweeter
• This tweeter dome material is not your normal aluminum dome. It is a specially produced aluminum alloy with a hard coat anodized coating.
• This dome allows for minimum distortion of the upper dome in the higher frequency ranges.
• The majority of the energy of the tweeter dome comes from the largest diameter of the dome's sphere. The majority of the acoustical energy does not come from the center of the dome as most people think. In fact, the center of the dome's sphere usually breaks up and causes distortion.
