Community DS5-W
Distributed Design Series 5" Two-Way Coaxial Surface Mount Loudspeaker in White


The Community Distributed Design Series DS5 is a full-range, compact, two-way system that is ideal for installations where space is at a premium. Easily outperforming loudspeakers of a larger size format, the DS5 provides high power handling, high sensitivity and realistic sound reproduction. With a modern architectural appearance that aesthetically merges well in most environments, combined with weather-resistant capability suitable for indirect outdoor use, the DS5 can be used in a wide variety of speech and music applications. It is equipped with a built-in autoformer, allowing the full loudspeaker output to be realized with 70V or 100V distribution lines. A convenient front-accessible power tap switch is hidden behind a rotatable logo. Installation is simple and flexible using the included Infin-A-Ball™ multi-angle wall mounting bracket which allows low profile mounting and precise positioning of the enclosure over a broad tilt-swivel range.

Community DS5 Features:

  • Same components and voicing as the Distributed Design ceiling loudspeaker family
  • High efficiency, high output, high intelligibility, low distortion
  • Paintable enclosure constructed of high-impact ABS plastic to reduce resonances
  • Front-accessible power tap switch for selectable 8 Ohm or 70V/100V operation
  • Infin-A-Ball™ low profile mounting bracket included
  • Weather-resistant construction with treated drivers, two-layer powder coated grilles and protected wiring ingress
