Community R.35-3896
3-Way 8" Full Range Weather Resistant Loudspeaker in Gray with 90x60 Coverage Pattern

OUR PART #  R.35-3896

The Community R.35-3896 is a fully horn-loaded triaxial three-way, full-range loudspeaker system designed to provide high-quality voice and music reproduction in applications requiring extreme weather resistance.  It is designed to withstand longterm exposure to tough, environmental conditions and to provide musical performance normally only associated with indoor loudspeakers.  The R.35-3896 features Community's innovative MultiSource Waveguide™ horn design; the output from the dual midrange compression drivers and 1" exit HF driver are combined seamlessly into a single timecoherent source, resulting in excellent musicality, intelligibility and dispersion consistency.  The high output, 3" voice coil, 8" carbon ring cone LF driver features a flange-less frame design that permits a cone area nearly equivalent to a typical 10" driver, resulting in high sensitivity and increased LF extension.  The low LF/MR passive crossover point results in improved mid-range pattern control and elimination of horn coloration in the LF response.

The Music / Voice switch allows for additional application flexibility.  The "Music" setting provides an out-of-the-box flat response and selecting "Voice" provides up to a 5dB boost for increased vocal projection and intelligibility.  The LF cone is treated with the same NeverWet™ coating as the grille cloth to ensure trouble-free performance in the harshest conditions.
