Community Professional Loudspeakers announces the introduction of eight new models to its premiere R-Series line, with new performance dimensions that expand the applications of this already comprehensive loudspeaker range. Three new compact models, the R.15COAX, R.35COAX, and R.35-3896, give systems designers increased flexibility by offering vastly improved music playback, additional coverage patterns and higher output in attractive paintable ABS enclosures. Five new R-MAX products, the R.5-66MAX, R.5-96MAX, R2-64MAX, R2-66MAX, and R2-94MAX, provide the most well-behaved, flattest musical response, premium loudspeakers ever offered in the R-Series.
The R.15COAX and R.35COAX use identical 1.25-inch exit HF compression drivers, featuring Community's exclusive Tru-Phase phase plug technology, and Carbon Ring Cone woofer technology which allows LF drivers to exhibit cone areas up to 20% larger than standard woofers of the same diameter. Both models feature front loaded LF drivers, 6.5-inch in the R.15COAX and 10-inch in the R.35COAX, in highly reinforced enclosures for natural, non-resonant low frequency reproduction, while identical voicing across both models ensures a uniform listening experience. The dynamic R.35-3896 is a triaxial 8-inch Carbon Ring Cone loudspeaker featuring Community's exclusive MultiSource Waveguide technology, integrating the output from dual midrange compression drivers and a 1-inch exit HF compression driver into a single coherent source. Fully passive, it is voiced for flat musical reproduction without EQ and delivers class-leading SPL levels for a loudspeaker of its size.
"In addition to the great musical performance of these new compact models, the most obvious visual difference is the sleek new paintable ABS enclosure," says Chris Barrow, Community's Director of Product Marketing. "It is visually superior and offers more flexibility while costing less to produce. That allowed us to invest in better audio components for exceptional performance without driving up the price."
The new R-MAX loudspeakers feature premium 1.4-inch exit HF drivers and 600W neodymium woofers. R-MAX delivers well-behaved coverage patterns, flat frequency response, high intelligibility and high broadband output.
Barrow says, "The R-MAX products are the best sounding R-Series loudspeakers we have ever produced. R-Series has always been acknowledged for its high output and voice intelligibility. Now, R-MAX also demonstrates the type of premium music performance that Community is capable of delivering. These loudspeakers can hold their ground against products costing two or three times as much. R-MAX are not just great outdoor loudspeakers, they are great loudspeakers period."
With the addition of the new R-Series models, Community provides systems designers and consultants with a new palette of features, while also improving core R-Series capabilities.
