The AtlasIED FAP8CXT is a true compression driver premium performance 70.7V / 100V tuned & ported 8" coaxial ceiling speaker system perfectly suited for many business music and public address applications -especially applications where high ceilings require speakers with increased efficiency and tighter pattern control.
The FAP8CXT's 90° dispersion angle (in the 2kHz octave band) is perfect for higher ceiling applications where tighter pattern control is required. Tight pattern control (not exceeding 90°) is important for high ceiling applications. Speakers exhibiting wider dispersion than 90° will exceed 6dB of drop off at the edge of the coverage pattern causing excessive SPL variances. Using more of the same wide coverage speaker in a high ceiling application to compensate only worsens the situation as comb filtering from multi-path arrivals will result.
The unit features a curvilinear, polypropylene cone for lower harmonic distortion, and a built-in crossover network for proper frequency transition between the two reproducers. This speaker is factory assembled to an optimally tuned & ported deep drawn enclosure and includes a specially designed 60 Watt low saturation 70.7V / 100V transformer. A convenient front mounted selector switch allows tap selection without the need to remove the speaker from the ceiling. This tap selector switch also includes a transformer bypass setting for instances where the 8Ω FAP8CXT driver is to be direct coupled with a low impedance amplifier.
