The gray AWC82 All-Weather 2-Way Coaxial Loudspeaker with 8" LF from JBL is a weather-resistant, full-range loudspeaker system ideal for speech and music-fill in large areas. The speaker is comprised of a high-power coaxial 8" low frequency driver and a 1" high frequency compression driver and offers a consistent 120° broadband pattern control. The co-axial design utilizes a tapered pole-piece design and transitions to the cone ofthe low frequency driver as a large diameter pattern control horn for the high frequencies, eliminating high-frequency beaming and extending pattern control to the lowest possible frequencies. The low frequency cone is kevlar-reinforced and features a well-damped surround for smooth frequency response, a high temperature voice coil, and a reduced distortion design through saturated-gap magnet geometry. The high frequency compression driver has a high temperature polymer diaphragm and fluid-cooling capabilities for high output levels with low distortion. The system is equipped with a 200W 70V/100V multi-tap transformer with connection made through an outdoor-rated terminal in a recessed terminal cup.
The paintable enclosure is constructed of ABS and fiberglass and is braced to maximize low-frequency performance. The corrosion-resistant, zinc-rich, powder-coated steel grille is backed with open cell foam and high thread-count mesh, providing protection in harsh environments. The system is rated IP-56, per IEC529, when installed at a minimum 5° down-tilt.
