Product Description

The 8CX has been designed as a high fidelity, small format, point source loudspeaker for use in permanent installations. Its high output and wide frequency response make it an ideal choice for speech and music reproduction in environments having limited space. The 8CX features a neodymium coaxial driver incorporating an 8-inch cone driver and a 1.75-inch compression driver. A 100° conic horn is available and best suited for near field coverage applications and a 70° conic constant directivity horn is also available for applications requiring tighter coverage and increased projection. The two dispersion models are: 8CX-P-100 and 8CX-P-70. The frequency response is 100 Hz - 18 kHz (+/-3 dB).

The 8CX’s input connections are two NL4 connectors (in and thru) and a 2-position terminal strip. An internal passive crossover network provides exceptionally clear output with remarkable coherence through the crossover frequencies. The 8CX is well-suited for front fill applications with full PA systems or equally appropriate when used alone as a main speaker in a smaller environment.

Like its series companions, the 5CX, the 8CX offers a seemingly unlimited number of ways to rig and/or mount utilizing a family of mounting accessories. The 8CX has (12) integral mounting points (M10 x 1.5 thread) and an integrated standard pole mount. The accessories include yoke mounting brackets for both vertical and horizontal mounting positions as well as tilt adapters to enable pan and tilt in either configuration. The brackets also have a companion pole mount socket to allow unrestrained pan and tilt when used as a pole mount speaker. Additional accessories include threaded stud plates, pipe clamp mounts, chain rigging points, VESA tilt mount and array mode top-bar plates. The 8CX is well-suited for down-firing applications, such as large convention centers or high ceiling commercial spaces. Pairs of mounting points on each panel of the cabinet are specifically spaced at the same spacing as slots on standard Unistrut hardware, allowing for exceptional compatibility in commercial integration projects.

The enclosure is constructed of premium Baltic birch plywood. A heavy-duty perforated powder coated steel grill backed with foam and weather-resistant components ensure reliability in harsh environments. A textured polyurea paint provides a durable, attractive finish.

As with all Clair Global loudspeaker products, the 8CX is designed and engineered with pride in the USA.
