        SAROS IC8T-B-T-EACH

        Saros® 8” 2-Way In-Ceiling Speaker, Black Textured, Single (must be ordered in multiples of 2)

        Complete your installation with Crestron speakers. Saros® speakers are designed to deliver excellent speech intelligibility and full, rich music reproduction for use in boardrooms, classrooms, restaurants, night clubs, retail spaces, houses of worship, and convention facilities. Solid construction and a number of feature enhancements ensure a quick and easy installation and years of reliable performance.

         

        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 through the employment of horn-loaded titanium dome tweeters, high-efficiency damped cone woofers, ported enclosures, and precisely tuned crossovers.

         
        The Saros IC8T model is a 2-way in-ceiling speaker featuring an 8 inch woofer and wide-dispersion, horn-loaded 1 inch dome tweeter. A built-in 60 Watt multi-tap transformer allows for use with 70 and 100 Volt distributed speaker systems. Power handling at 8 Ohms is an impressive 150 Watts (program), with a wide frequency response from 50 Hz to 20 kHz (±3 dB).

        The Saros IC8T is smartly designed for quick and easy installation and years of reliable performance. Its "zero-bezel" frameless grille achieves an unobtrusive and contemporary appearance well-suited for use in restaurants and night clubs, retail spaces, houses of worship, convention facilities, universities, and office buildings. Installing the grille requires no hardware or tools, utilizing powerful magnets to hold it in place. A safety tether is included to prevent the grille from ever falling from the ceiling.

        Unitized construction of the speaker enclosure simplifies specification and installation for use in new and existing ceilings. Mounting the speaker is facilitated using rugged, 2-step toggle clamps integrated into the enclosure. Each toggle clamp offers two positions to accommodate standard and extra thick surfaces up to 2.4 inches (61 mm). A tile bridge is included to provide proper support when installed in a typical drop-tile ceiling. The tile bridge is adjustable to enable off-center speaker positioning, and can be folded to fit through the speaker cutout in blind-mount situations. Two rigging points are also provided on the top of the speaker enclosure for securing to the building structure using the optional safety tether kit (SPKA-ST-15 [1]).

        An integral metal back can is employed to meet the requirements of UL® 2043 for installation in an environmental air-handling (plenum) space. The wiring connection is accessible behind a rear cover panel by removing a single screw. Top and side knockouts are provided on the cover panel to accommodate 1/2" or 3/4" flexible conduit. A cable clamp is also provided. Connecting the wiring behind the cover panel is facilitated using a detachable screw terminal block with provisions for easy parallel wiring in a multi-speaker application. Setting the 70/100V transformer tap is performed via a screwdriver-adjustable control located on the front baffle behind the grille.

        Saros IC8T speakers are available in white or black, and can be painted to blend with the ceiling surface. They are priced individually, but must be ordered in pairs.
