5" Surface Mount Speaker, Black


The Tannoy AMS 5DC is a wide bandwidth, high power-handling and high sensitivity surface mount loudspeaker designed with an aesthetic that is ideal for multi-zone foreground music and paging, boardrooms and offices, airports, convention centers, and auxiliary systems in houses of worship. The elegantly-styled molded enclosures blend beautifully into any décor with custom color available on special order. Additionally the AMS 5DC has undergone rigorous environmental testing of any product in Tannoy’s history – achieving an IP65 rating, which is among the highest for outdoor use. Behind the unobtrusive, smoothly formed, weather-resistant zinc-plated nickel grilles and higher temperature polymer moldings lies the technical heart of Tannoy’s Dual Concentric Driver’s revolutionary Omnimagnet™ technology and a unique patent-pending Torus Ogive Waveguide™ device.

Together these innovations provide more consistent and controlled directivity along with improved high frequency response, as well as much improved time alignment and greater coherence between the low frequency and high frequency drivers. This latest generation of Dual Concentrics has their genesis in many of the world’s high end recording studios, and was even used to mix and master The Beatles’ treasured Abbey Road recordings.

By extension, these AMS models ensure that playback of recorded material sounds exactly as the engineer intended when it was mixed in the studio, making them perfect for entertainment and hospitality venues, as well as areas where true sonic clarity and reliability is required. The AMS range utilizes a 16 ohm driver, making it ideal for use in high performance low-impedance systems (with optimized performance when used in conjunction with Lab.gruppen LUCIA amplifiers).Alternatively, for constant voltage systems, Tannoy have specified as standard, high quality low insertion loss 30 W transformers featuring switching for taps at 30 W, 15 W and 7.5 W, with an additional 3.75 W tap for traditional systems.
