Drivers & Components
SP8053 Series Drivers
The Penton Audio SP816TCO is a 20-watt, 8″ full-range speaker assembly. This premium model uses a coaxial driver with 3-inch-wide cone tweeter for smooth dispersion and long-term reliability.
High-quality components are used in the manufacture of each Penton speaker. These include steel baskets with a rust preventative coating, twin cones (on the tweeter an aluminum voice coil) and high-temperature copper voice coil on the low-frequency driver.
This family uses speaker baskets that mount on standard bolt circles of 7.626″ (195 mm). They may be mounted in various types of speaker enclosures and mate with nearly all popular mounting accessories including Penton G8M (CRS) or G8P (ABS) grilles, and BBX8B enclosure with BRG8B tile bridge. Standard mounting fasteners are also available.
The assembly uses a pre-mounted 5-watt, 70.7/25-volt transformer with an insertion loss no higher than 1.5 dB. 6″ five-conductor, color-coded wire provides easy connection via bare ends to 5, 2, 1, 0.5 and 0.25 watt taps.
SP Series coaxial loudspeakers are applicable for voice announce, background/foreground music and signal reproduction.
