Saros® speakers by Crestron® deliver professional grade performance and flexible installation in a range of popular sizes for demanding commercial applications. Solid construction, easy installation, and high-end components are hallmarks of the Saros speaker line. Ideal for use in background or foreground music, paging, and sound reinforcement systems, Saros speakers are engineered to achieve smooth, even coverage, high output, and clear, natural sound quality.
The Saros PDS8T model is an 8 inch pendant subwoofer designed to provide extended low-frequency response for music and sound reinforcement applications. Power handling is 100 Watts (program) at 8 Ohms, with a tailored frequency response of 45 Hz to 125 Hz (±3 dB) and a usable range down to 35 Hz. A built-in transformer allows for use with 70 and 100 Volt distributed speaker systems.
Its built-in low-pass filter allows the Saros PDS8T to sound great alongside Saros 4, 6, and 8 inch full-range speakers without requiring a separate crossover. Optimum performance and sound quality is achieved using a biamplified sound system such as the Sonnex® Multiroom Audio System , which can be configured to employ a dedicated subwoofer amplifier channel with active 2-way crossover.
The Saros PDS8T is designed to be suspended from a ceiling truss in an open-ceiling environment. Its clean, contoured enclosure achieves an attractive appearance in restaurants and night clubs, retail spaces, houses of worship, convention facilities, universities, and office buildings. Weatherized construction allows for use in outdoor entertainment venues, patios, and swimming pools. To facilitate installation, a 10 ft (3 m) length of wire rope with attached snap hook is supplied. Securing the wire rope to the truss and adjusting it to the desired length is accomplished quickly and easily using the provided Gripple® self-locking wire rope grip.
To achieve its sleek, sculpted appearance, the Saros PDS8T employs a durable ABS plastic housing and “zero-bezel” frameless grille. Composed of steel, the grille is held in place by powerful magnets, eliminating any visible screws or other hardware. A safety tether is included to prevent the grille from ever presenting a falling hazard. Setting the 70/100V transformer tap is performed via a screwdriver-adjustable control located on the speaker baffle behind the grille.
Wiring connections are provided on the top of the speaker adjacent to the suspension rigging point. Connecting the wiring is facilitated using a detachable screw terminal block with provisions for easy parallel wiring in a multi-speaker application. A weather boot is included to protect the wiring connections from moisture.
The PDS8T is topped off with a top cover, which conceals the wiring connections and suspension hardware for a very clean, contoured appearance. Saros PDS8T speakers are available in white or black, and can be painted to blend with the surrounding architecture. They are priced and sold individually.
