Joining the PRO-65 and PRO-80 in the expanded PRO-IC range, the new PRO-80LV 70/100V line speaker offers similarly stealthy but highly flexible system options for commercial installations. Reprising many of Monitor Audio's most acclaimed hi fi design configurations, its 8" MMP II bass driver and signature 1" gold-dome tweeter deliver high audio quality with excellent speech intelligibility for public address and distributed music applications. The PRO-80LV features an internal matching transformer, providing a 70V or 100V input for powering multiple speakers on a single amplifier channel. A 16 ohm switch position offers the flexibility to wire one, two, three or four speakers in parallel per channel. Power taps allow system designers to set maximum SPL in areas such as restrooms and foyers.
Gold Dome C-CAM
The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats.
Metal Matrix Polymer driver cones have a polypropylene base loaded with metallic particles to offer a rigid and responsive structure. They are manufactured using a sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone thickness at critical points to optimise stiffness and consistency, resulting in a superior sonic performance.
Tri-Grip Dog Fixings
All models feature a unique Tri-Grip fixing design. This 3-position 'dog' style fixing provides a greater contact surface area than other types, whilst saving installation time. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough re-enforced polymer, giving a secure fixing without the risk of over-tightening.
