Community R.5-96MAX
12" High Output Full Range Weather Resistant Loudspeaker in Grey with 90x60 Dispersion


Community's R.5-96MAX is a two-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 long-term exposure to tough, environmental conditions and to provide high output performance.

The R.5-96MAX has a 1.4" (36 mm) exit HF compression driver and a 12" (305 mm) cone 600W neodymium LF driver. The HF assembly is coaxially mounted with the LF driver allowing 90° x 60° coverage with low distortion. The system has been designed to provide a flat response with slightly rising HF.

The R.5-96MAX can act as both a musical entertainment loudspeaker and a voice PA loudspeaker simultaneously. Each system is backed by Community's five-year product warranty and fifteen-year enclosure warranty.
