Community VERIS2 1596
15" 500W 8Ohm 2-Way Speaker in Black

OUR PART #  VERIS2-1596-BLACK


The V2-1596 is a two-way, full-range loudspeaker system suitable for use in a wide range of fixed installations. Extremely powerful with a clear, low distortion sonic quality, the V2-1596 is ideal for applications such as contemporary worship services, music and dance clubs, and theatrical sound reinforcement. Its trapezoidal design allows it to be clustered with like units, forming powerful arrays. The 90º x 60º pattern makes the V2-1596 useful for applications requiring a wide angle of controlled coverage, such as in rooms that are wider than they
are deep. The enclosure may be suspended from its M10 threaded rigging points using a variety of optional hardware from Community, or it may be installed using a third-party mounting device.

The V2-1596 provides extended high frequency response, low distortion output, authoritative bass, and precise pattern control. Featuring carefully designed crossovers that provide flat acoustic power response throughout the critical midrange region, and Community’s exclusive DYNATECH ™ driver protection circuitry, the V2-1596 is a versatile performer for use in music and speech applications that require
high quality, high power sound reinforcement at an affordable price.

  • Discreet and aesthetic trapezoidal enclosure
  • Optimized voicing for full-range reproduction
  • DYNA-TECH™ driver protection circuitry
  • Ferrofluid-treated HF driver for improved heat dissipation
  • Carbon Ring Cone Technology provides 30% more piston area with increased excursion capability in LF driver
  • Terminal strip and NL4-compatible connectors
  • Multiple bracket options offer affordable arraying solutions
  • Included in Community’s Forecaster HD ceiling distributed system software
  • Available in standard black or white finishes
