Martin Audio C8.1T Ceiling Speaker

Martin Audio C8.1T Ceiling mounted, two-way vented enclosure from£249

The Martin Audio C8.1T has been specifically designed for higher ceilings where its high SPL capability and controlled 90° dispersion enable it to provide excellent intelligibility in more reverberant rooms.

The C8.1T  features an 8″ (200mm) unit with a carbon fibre loaded, polypropylene cone and a 1″ (25mm) horn-loaded dome tweeter mounted side-by-side for optimum dispersion and smooth response off-axis. The Martin Audio enclosure is ported to extend the low frequency performance and the 5-point mounting system ensures that installation is fast and secure. Input and link terminals make paralleling units a simple operation and a steel cover plate protects the input connector against fire.

These products comply with UL2043 Fire Tests for Heat & Visible Smoke Release for Discrete Products and their Accessories Installed in Air Handling Spaces.
Listed UL1480 General Signalling Speakers.
