Peavey® Architectural Acoustics® Introduces Elements™ Weatherproof Loudspeaker Enclosures
June 04, 2013
Peavey® Architectural Acoustics® introduces its latest advancement in pro audio loudspeaker enclosures, the ElementsTM weatherproof loudspeakers. The all-new American-made, incredibly durable, reliable and versatile Elements weatherproof enclosures are a combination of innovative cabinet construction and proven, weatherized components designed for direct contact with the elements in the most demanding climates. Gone are the days of hanging so-called enclosures outside only to replace the speaker in a year or two.
The Elements™ C series of composite enclosures are constructed from an advanced composite fiberboard material that is dimensionally stable in wet conditions and resists contamination, yet has the resonant properties of wood. This light and durable material ensures unmatched sonic performance while providing reliable service year after year. The aluminum grills of the Elements C series enclosures feature a barrier membrane that repels water yet allows moisture to escape without affecting the sonic performance of the loudspeaker.
The IP45 rated Elements C series is available in three two-way, full range configurations and as a flyable subwoofer. The Elements 115C and Elements 112C debut new 15” and 12” weatherproof Black Widow® woofers and an RX™22 2” titanium diaphragm compression driver tweeter coupled to a Quadratic-Throat Waveguide® rotatable horn. The Elements 115C and Elements 112C can each be ordered with either a 60 X 40 or a 105 X 60 horn. The Elements 108C combines a 75 X 75 horn with an 8” weatherproof woofer in a compact and durable enclosure. The Elements 212 subwoofer is a flyable subwoofer enclosure featuring a pair of 12” weatherproof woofers.
The Elements™ M series enclosures feature rugged molded cabinets and a variety of
speaker sizes and horn options. All cabinets feature an IP45 environmental rating, thanks to stainless multi-fly-point hardware, sealed terminal connections, weather-repellant grills and weatherproof speaker cones. The cabinet and hardware designs combine to form a system that can be used in almost any application. The Elements M series array hardware and cabinet design allows cabinets to be mounted in either vertical or horizontal arrays in 5-degree increments. In addition, lighting/power pole mounting hardware is available to accommodate both the M and C series cabinets.
Each Elements M series two-way system features an RX™22 2” titanium diaphragm compression driver tweeter and is available with 8”, 10” and 12” woofer combinations. The Elements 108M, 110M, and 112M come with Quadratic-Throat Waveguide® rotatable horns and can be ordered in 60 X 40 or 105 X 60 configurations. The Elements M series also contains a flyable 212 subwoofer that can be flown alongside in horizontal or vertical arrays.
The new Elements C and M series loudspeakers will be available from authorized Architectural Acoustics dealers.
