8'' pendant speaker. 400W program. 90° Uniform Coverage

The SN8 is the first model of the SoundNut Series, the new WORK PRO's pendant loudpeaker range.

The SN8 is a high output, full range, passive, two-way coaxial pendant loudspeaker which provides voice intelligibility and musical clarity in acoustically challenging environments such as shopping malls, houses of worship, restaurants, congress halls, hotels, airports, train stations, swimming pools, conference rooms or museums, where high ceiling structures create a reverberant sound field.

Each unit features one 8'' transducer, 2" voice coil, in a bass reflex enclosure for the low frequencies, with optimized dual ports. The high frequencies are reproduced by a coaxially mounted 1" diameter voice coil compression driver featuring a polymer membrane and ferrofluid cooling which contributes to an improved efficiency and lower power compression. It is coupled to a horn device which provides a consistent 90° symetric coverage over the vocal range.

The screwless, one single piece enclosure has been designed for a seamless visual integration in every venue, and is made of rigid, high quality black or white fiberglass. The steel grille is magnetically attached to avoid the use of screws, and includes a steel safety wire to prevent it from a falling hazard. A single point hanging hardware, concealed under a top cover for clean appearance, is included on the cabinet for fast and secure suspension, featuring two additional spare holes for safety cables.

The system also includes 2m of four poles electrical connection cable, which enters the enclosure through a cable gland preventing thereby water, dust or moisture from damaging the transducers.

The four stripped wires cable allow for low and high impedance connections of the SN8, which houses a high quality 60Wrms transformer that makes it suitable for installations where long cables have to be deployed.

Tuning presets are available to enhance the frequency balance and intelligibility.
