TM
The CSV8 is a rugged, high-sensitivity, two-way, Loudspeaker Type:
full-range loudspeaker system. The system utilizes one Two-Way, Full Range Bass Reflex System
PZT high-frequency driver coupled to an exponential Frequency Response: 60-18,000 Hz
horn and one 8" woofer for high sensitivity and excellent Power Handling: CSV8 -100W RMS
power handling capability. These components are 250W Program
matched to an optimally tuned direct radiating bass- CSV8T-60W, 30W, 15W, 7.5W
reflex enclosure. The system's small size makes it Recommended Amp: 200W to 300W @ 8 Ohms
perfect for unobtrusive permanent installation Sensitivity at 1W/1M: 94 dB
applications. Nominal Dispersion: 90o x 50o (HxV)
The CSV8 offers a robust internal PowerSense Nominal Impedance:
Dynamic Driver Protection crossover. The PowerSense CSV8 - 8 ohms
crossover is built to last with high quality inductors and CSV8T- 83 ohms, 167 ohms, 333 ohms, 667 ohms
military grade circuit boards. The proprietary PowerSense Crossover Frequency: 2,500 Hz
DDP protection circuit provides both over current and Drivers:
thermal protection for added performance and reliability. One PZT on an Exponential Horn
Designed as a stand-alone full-range loudspeaker One 8" Woofer
system, the CSV8 offers enough bass for most foreground/ Speaker Protection: PowerSense DDP
background applications. For more demanding Input Connections: Barrier Strip
applications, extended bass can be achieved by adding a Enclosure Material:
CSX-S2 subwoofer. The CSV8 has several model Simulated oak veneer covered high density
variations. The CSV8T is identical to the CSV8 except particle board
that it has a factory mounted TRC60 60 watt 70V to 8 Dimensions:
ohm transformer. The transformer has taps of 60W, Height: 13.5 inches (343 mm)
30W, 15W, and 7.5W lthat can be selected on the input Width: 13.5 inches (343 mm)
panel. The CSV8B and CSV8BT are the CSV8 and Depth: 8.5 inches (216 mm)
CSV8T loudspeakers with a black finish. Weight (each): CSV8 23 lbs. (10.4 kg.)
Mounting is easily accomplished utilizing threaded CSV8T 25 lbs. (11.3 kg.)
inserts provided and optional mounting kits. All CSV8 Shipping Weight (box of two):
versions are shipped 2 per box. CSV8 50 lbs. (22.7 kg.)
CSV8T 54 lbs. (24.5 kg.)

ARCHITECTS' AND ENGINEERS' SPECIFICATIONS


The loudspeaker system shall be a direct-radiating, bass-reflex design with one 8" woofer and one PZT driver coupled
to a exponential horn. All components shall be connected to an integral crossover/protector. The crossover/protector
shall be a two-way design with 12 dB/octave low pass at 2,500 Hz to the woofer and 12 dB/octave high-pass at 2,500
to the high-frequency driver. The crossover shall utilize high quality inductors and high positive current coefficient
resistors (HPCCR's) for component protection. The loudspeaker enclosure shall have an internal volume of .5 cu. ft.
(13.0 l) and be constructed of dense, well braced stock covered in (choose color: black or oak grain) vinyl. The system
shall meet the following performance criteria: Amplitude response of 60 Hz to 18,000 Hz +/- 5 dB, 100W RMS power
handling, 94 dB sensitivity at 1 meter with one watt applied. Coverage pattern shall be nominally 90o x 50o (HxV).
Dimensions shall be 13.5" (343 mm) high, 13.5" (343 mm) wide, 8.5" (216 mm) deep, and weigh 23 lbs. (10.4 kg). The
system impedance shall be 8 ohms nominal.
