Both models feature a 1-inch balanced dome tweeter for superb clarity at higher frequencies. With water-resistant enclosures and transducers, the new surface mount speakers meet industry standard IEC60529 IPX3 rating requirements. Internally mounted transformers enable the speakers to operate in 70V or 100V distributed sound systems.
