With a frequency range of 90Hz-22kHz, continuous program power capacity of 80W and sensitivity of 87dB (1w/1m), the CVS4 Micro is suited for medium volume BGM and business/conferencing applications where even coverage and low-distortion natural sound is required. The mineral loaded polypropylene cone material and nitrile rubber surround of the 4-inch driver enhance durability and long-term reliability.
