The DP8 is a high performance 8-inch pendant loudspeakers designed for open architecture spaces or any location where a stylish pendant form factor is desired. Featuring high power handling, higher sensitivity and realistic sound reproduction, the DP8 is the more focused big brother to the DP6. D SERIES pendant loudspeakers can be used in a wide variety of speech and music applications. They are equipped with a built-in autoformer, supporting low impedance or 70V/100V operation. Uniform voicing means that the DP8 can be combined with other ceiling and surface mount models in the C or D SERIES family without compromising consistency from zone to zone. The genuine coaxial design uses separate magnets for the LF and HF drivers for reduced distortion and industry-leading sensitivity, thereby permitting 3 dB to 6 dB greater output level while requiring half the amplification power of competing products. An easy-access selector switch is conveniently located on the face of the loudspeaker for selectable 8 ohm or 70V/100V operation, while an integrated rear cover hides all wiring and hanging hardware for an aesthetically pleasing installation.

Community ALC404D is recommended for this product. Higher power ALC models may be used safely as well.
