Community W2-2W8WT
Dual 8" 2-Way WET II Series Loudspeaker in White with Built-In 200W Autoformer


Exhibiting a true 120º wide coverage pattern, the Community WET2W8 is an innovative two-way loudspeaker. The W2-2W8 satisfies a variety of sound reinforcement, down-fill, underbalcony stage edge fill, monitoring, and other applications. This particular model includes a factory-installed 200-watt autoformer (model W2-2W8T) for 70V/100V lines with selectable taps at 200, 100, 50 and 25 watts.

The LF drivers and centrally placed 120º HF pattern control horn have been engineered to provide superior uniform pattern over the widest possible bandwidth. The unique molded "Super-V" configuration of the LF drivers provides exceptional uniform mid-range coverage that would be impossible to create with a conventional flat wood baffle plate. Precise modeling and documentation prove that woofer/horn/woofer placement in traditional underbalcony fill-type loudspeaker designs exacerbates severe vertical lobing. The Super-V
configuration prevents the collapse of the horizontal coverage pattern throughout its range, especially the critical voice-range, when oriented in its usual horizontal position.

Engineered for permanent installations, the loudspeaker enclosure and faceplate are constructed of multilayer glass composite, resulting in
extreme structural strength. A threelayer Weather-Stop™ grille provides weather-resistance to the internal components, while all exposed hardware is stainless steel or powdercoated aluminum extrusion. A stainless steel mounting yoke is included.

The W2-2W8 is backed by a five-year product warranty plus a fifteen year enclosure warranty.
