- QSC Audio has extended its AcousticDesign ceiling speaker range, with the release of two new models: the AD-C1200 and AD-C820/C821.
- The AD-C1200 High-output Ceiling Mount Loudspeaker System features 12-inch low frequency woofer, 1.75-inch diaphragm compression driver, 300W continuous power rating, and a 70V / 100V multi-tap transformer (enabling the system to operate in distributed or low-impedance mode).
The AD-C1200 has been designed for music playback, public address and distributed audio in applications that require high output from a ceiling mounted loudspeaker.
The AcousticDesign Series of installation loudspeakers has been designed for trouble free operation and versatility. Utilizing custom designed transducers and crossover networks, in combination with an acoustically optimized enclosure (AD-C1200BB), the AD-C1200 embraces the AD Series philosophy by bringing the same versatility and reliability to high-ceiling applications.
Each AD-C1200 includes the coaxial transducers, a transformer and a crossover network, factory mounted on a steel baffle. The baffle is designed to mount to the QSC enclosure or to any ~2.5 ft3 enclosure using industry standard transducer mounting dimensions. A square grille (AD-C1200SG) is available to complete the installation.
The 12-inch woofer is made with a treated paper cone on a steel frame. In the optimized enclosure the usable low frequency of the system extends to 37Hz. The 1.75-inch compression driver fires through the centre of the woofer and is acoustically mated to the woofer for a smooth transition at crossover. This model is complemented by the AD-C820/C821, which features 8-inch low frequency woofer, 1.75-inch diaphragm compression driver, 200W continuous power rating, 70V / 100V multi-tap transformer (enabling the system to operate in distributed or low-impedance mode) and AD-C820 transducer/baffle assembly for separated backcan installation.
