Di8 DC

The Di 8DC is a large, extremely very high performance, weatherproof loudspeaker featuring a very high specification Tannoy Dual Concentric driver. By placing the high frequency unit in the centre of the main mid-bass driver, set back within a horn, the result is a true point source driver with outstanding articulation and phase coherence. The Di 8DC Dual Concentric driver uses a large 200 mm (8.00”) mid-bass cone that has been resin-treated to increase weather resistance. At its centre is a potent 25 mm (1.00”) Wideband titanium dome tweeter with neodymium motor and ferrofluid cooling system.

Capable of handling 180Watt programme materials and 360Watt peaks, the Di 8DC delivers a perfectly conical dispersion pattern over 90 degrees. Its formidable 53Hz-35kHz frequency range is complimented by high 91db/Watt sensitivity. The Di 8DC is ideal for high power high performance installations as it can deliver 111dB average SPL with 117dB peaks. The result is a class-leading weather proof loudspeaker for use in installations where audio quality if of the highest importance.

The Di 8DC is built into a paintable, compact, IP 64 rated High Impact PolyStyrene enclosure, available in black or white as standard. The supplied grille and yoke bracket are colour matched to the main enclosure and connectivity is by a removable Euroblock connector. This can be connected to the optional pre-wired Tannoy K-Ball mount if required. The Di 8CDt adds a low insertion loss 60W transformer for distributed audio installations with a selection of wattage taps available via the bottom mounted tap switch.
