Orlando, FL (May 13, 2019)—Ready for InfoComm next month in Orlando, Peavey has announced its Elements C Series of weatherproof loudspeakers will add new marine-grade versions, denoted by a CS suffix.
The new marine-grade editions are specially designed to withstand salt water, making them an option for cruise ships, swimming pools or coastal outdoor applications such as theme parks and resorts.
The American-made composite enclosures are constructed from a composite fiberboard material said to be dimensionally stable in wet conditions while retaining resonant properties associated with wood.
In order to qualify for marine-grade ranking, all metal components have been upgraded to 316 stainless steel, including the front grille which is now stainless steel rather than aluminum, and the permeable hydrophobic membrane between the speaker and the grille has also been upgraded. The number of mounting points has been reduced in order to reduce the risk of corrosion and water/salt ingress, but a purpose-built U-bracket with a positive locking mechanism is included to allow for installation.
The CS versions also feature an integrated multi-tap transformer with 70 V, 100 V and 8 Ohm taps along with removable plugs for all ports. All models are available in black or UV-protected marine-grade white. Like the Elements C Series, the CS versions are verified to IP56 level.
The Elements CS Series is available in three two-way, full range configurations and as a flyable subwoofer. The Elements 115Cs and Elements 112Cs feature 15” and 12” weatherproof Black Widow woofers and an RX22 2” titanium diaphragm compression driver tweeter coupled to a Quadratic-Throat Waveguide rotatable horn.
The Elements 115CS and Elements 112CS can be ordered with either a 60° X 40° or a 105° X 60° horn. The Elements 108CS combines a 75° X 75° horn with an 8” weatherproof woofer in a compact and durable enclosure. The Elements 212CS subwoofer is a flyable subwoofer enclosure featuring a pair of 12” weatherproof woofers.
