Orlando, FL (June 14, 2013)—Community has announced WET X, a collection of 13 new models of its WET Series of outdoor loudspeakers.
WET X’s hand-laid fiberglass enclosures are internally lined with marine-grade plywood and use new drivers to provide sound for both outdoor and indoor venues. The 12-inch and 15-inch, two-way, full-range WET X loudspeakers offer six rotatable horn patterns, high output, and LF extension. WET X loudspeakers contain a large diaphragm 1.4-inch exit high frequency compression driver and can produce the same output levels as the largest WET II loudspeakers but in enclosures only half the size. The low frequency cone and internal circuitry have Community’s proprietary Envirotech coating for weather-resistance. The WX218SDF, a downfire dual 18-inch model, adds a high-performance subwoofer to the line.
WET X enclosures feature a modified trapezoidal silhouette that reportedly improves upon the curved shape of Community’s WET II enclosures, bringing a more traditional look and feel to the loudspeakers. Internally, the flat surfaces are fully lined with 18mm (7-layer) marine grade plywood to provide the sonic benefits of wood inside of Community’s fiberglass enclosures.
All of the wood is resin-sealed to reinforce the enclosure’s weather resistance. The outer shell is handcrafted of multi-layer fiberglass with a smooth glossy finish and is available in black or white, with custom paint colors optional. All models include a dual-layer powder-coated stainless steel mounting bracket.
