New Compact I Series speakers from Community

Community Professional Loudspeakers has announced three new I Series Compact speakers designed to match the performance, appearance and voicing of the original I Series point source and subwoofer models, but in a smaller package.

The I Series Compact loudspeakers are described as the perfect complement to Community’s larger I Series 800-Level and 600-Level models for distributed applications, front-fill/side-fill or as the main loudspeakers in smaller spaces.

All Compact I Series units offer ‘best-in-class’ LF extension, sensitivity and maximum output, ensuring high quality sound reproduction, Community says. According to the company, the 6.5in IC6-1062 features ‘unprecedented’ LF extension for its cabinet size and a very wide dispersion 100 x 100 degree fabric HF dome on a shallow waveguide, providing a smooth response while retaining high sensitivity, while the single 8in IC6-1082 and symmetrical dual 8in IC6-2082 are available with two rotatable horn patterns (120 x 60 degrees, 90 x 60 degrees) paired with low distortion, high output 1.7in diaphragm HF compression drivers.

The new models are available in textured black or white, or in a custom colour as one of several Configure-to-Order (CTO) options. U-Brackets, Vertical Yokes and a 70V/100V autoformer are also available and the enclosures have mounting points for selected third party brackets. The Compact I Series can be ordered in weather-resistant versions featuring grey PolyGlas enclosures and optional stainless-steel, powder-coated U-Brackets.

All I Series loudspeakers are made in the USA at Community’s headquarters in Chester, Pennsylvania.
