InfoComm 2019 will mark the US debut of an enhancement to Peavey’s Elements C Series weatherproof loudspeakers.
Following last year’s announcement of the upgrade from IP45 to IP56 rating, InfoComm 2019 sees the unveiling of marine-grade versions that are specially designed to withstand salt water, making them an ideal choice for cruise ships, swimming pools or coastal outdoor applications such as theme parks and resorts, fun fairs, restaurants and more.
The Elements CS Series of composite enclosures are constructed from an advanced composite fibreboard material that is dimensionally stable in wet conditions and resists contamination yet has the resonant properties of wood.
In order to qualify for marine-grade ranking, all metal components have been upgraded to 316 stainless steel for higher resistance to pitting and corrosion. This includes the front grille which is now stainless steel rather than aluminium, and the permeable hydrophobic membrane between the speaker and the grille has also been upgraded. The number of mounting points has been reduced in order to reduce the risk of corrosion and water/salt ingress but a purpose-built U-bracket with a positive locking mechanism is included to allow for fast and easy installation with maximum angle adjustment.
The CS versions also feature an integrated multi-tap transformer with 70V, 100V and 8 Ohm taps along with removable plugs for all ports. All models are available in black or UV-protected marine-grade white.
The Elements CS Series is available in three two-way, full range configurations and as a flyable subwoofer. The Elements 115Cs and Elements 112Cs feature 15” and 12” weatherproof Black Widow woofers and an RX22 2” titanium diaphragm compression driver tweeter coupled to a Quadratic-Throat Waveguide rotatable horn. The Elements 115CS and Elements 112CS can be ordered with either a 60° X 40° or a 105° X 60° horn. The Elements 108CS combines a 75° X 75° horn with an 8” weatherproof woofer in a compact and durable enclosure. The Elements 212CS subwoofer is a flyable subwoofer enclosure featuring a pair of 12” weatherproof woofers.
