The Electro-Voice EVID C8.2 loudspeaker system is a complete two-way ceiling loudspeaker package. The package consists of a bezel assembly, grille, rear enclosure, 8-inch coax two-way loudspeaker and internal line-matching transformer. The loudspeaker features a waveguide coupled titanium coated dome tweeter. The EVID C8.2 loudspeaker utilizes a 2nd order crossover network at 2.5 kHz, with a comprehensive protection circuit to protect the network, woofer, and tweeter drivers from excessive power levels. The C8.2 utilizes a transformer that offers a selection of 1.88 (70-V only), 3.75, 7.5, 15 or 30 watts delivered to the loudspeaker system using either 70-V or 100-V lines, or 8-ohm bypass. Selection is via a convenient switch on the front baffle. The perforated grille is finished in semi-gloss white powder-coated enamel. The baffle and bezel are constructed from UL 94V-0 rated ABS. The rear enclosure is constructed from zinc-plated, heavy gauge steel. The rear enclosure, with fiberglass damping material, provides an optimum internal volume for extended low-frequency performance. A rear cover, with provisions for a junction box fitting, provides access to a 4- pin terminal block that allows direct connection to the speaker with 12 gauge wire and provides pass through to additional speakers. A tile bridge is included for safe suspension of the C8.2 ceiling systems in a drop ceiling that uses mineral wool, or other fiber-based ceiling tiles. The EVID line of ceiling speakers has been designed to work together as a complete system in a wide range of different ceiling constructions. They provide wide dispersion, high-efficiency, high-maximum output, ease of installation, and wide-range reproduction of music or voice.
