The S6.1 and the S8.1 offer streamlined appearances and high-fidelity audio with exclusive Optimal Bass Enhancement radiator technology that delivers an enhanced low-end for a richer and more robust full-range sound while maintaining an IP65 rating for indoor and outdoor applications. Additionally, both dust-tight and UV-protected 70V outdoor surface mount speakers are easy to mount vertically or horizontally on walls, under awnings, overhangs, press boxes, and more. These all-weather speakers, with a built-in 70-volt/100-volt tap transformer and an 8-ohm bypass, are perfect for foreground and background music, paging, announcements, and general-purpose audio.
The two models differ by size and power. The S6.1 is more compact, encompassing a 6.5-inch graphite woofer and 1-inch silk tweeter while boasting an 80Hz-20kHz full-range frequency response, with 20 watts and an 86 dB SPL sensitivity.
