MULTIPURPOSE 8” COAX 300W/8ohm - 121dB SPL

FBT’s renowned all-weather SHADOW series of enclosures is benefiting from significant upgrades that will make the range suitable for use in emergency and evacuation applications. Now offering full EN54-24 certification as well as a new rotomoulded enclosure in polypropylene with 5VB flame resistance classification, the newly updated series will be showcased at Frankfurt Pro Light + Sound 2018. Suitable for use both indoors and outdoors, the SHADOW series was originally launched to provide IP55-rated extreme water and particle resistance (including a water-stop grille) in both point source and line array formats. The original IP55 series will continue to be manufactured by FBT, to cover all-weather installations not requiring the EN54-24 certification.         

Now the upgraded range delivers enhanced options for systems integrators with the possibility of using a single system for both weather resistant sound reinforcement and voice alarm / evacuation functions.

All of the new SHADOW series enclosures are internally equipped with ceramic terminal blocks and thermal fuses, ensuring the continued operation of loudspeakers in the event of a fire. In addition, all connections use flame-retardant cabling which adheres to the EN50200 standard (with IP68 airtight cable glands).

Upgraded point source models in the range include the extremely compact 5” SHADOW 105T, outputting 200W and 110 dB (peak) with a frequency response of 100Hz to 18KHz and 100° x

70° dispersion. The 8” SHADOW 108CT is rated at 600W / 121 dB (peak) with a 94Hz - 20KHz frequency response and 90° conical dispersion. The multipurpose coax SHADOW 112CT delivers 800W / 126 dB (peak) with 80° conical coverage and a frequency response of 68Hz - 20KHz. Finally, the SHADOW 112HC is a 12” coaxial horn for medium to longthrow applications with an 800W rating, 129 dB SPL (peak), a frequency response of 98Hz - 19KHz and 80° x 50° dispersion. An arrayable version, the SHADOW 142L is also available, with each module producing 1,200W / 132 dB with a 63Hz - 20KHz frequency range and tight 80° x 15° coverage.

All of the enclosures within the SHADOW range are equipped with a standard 100V line transformer except for the 142L.
