Bogen Communications announced the CSD1X2U-V2, a Drop-In Ceiling Panel Speaker designed to meet diverse audio needs with unmatched flexibility and ease of installation. The CSD1X2U-V2 is a passive speaker with “versatile operation modes,” supporting either 8-ohm low impedance (15W max) or 25V/70V with tapped power setting input. This dual capability makes it an ideal choice for a wide range of audio applications, from commercial environments to educational institutions. The CSD1X2U-V2 also accommodates Nyquist PoE Amplifier Modules, making it easy to enhance speaker configurations. Compatible modules include the NQ-GA10P(V) VoIP Intercom module, and NQ-GA20P2 and NQ-GA40P3 Integrated Amplifiers, enabling seamless integration into existing PoE networks. Designed as a drop-in ceiling panel speaker, the CSD1X2U-V2 is available in Ultra White (U) and ensures quick and hassle-free installation, reducing time and labor costs.

The development of the CSD1X2U-V2 was driven by customer feedback and demands for future-proofing hardware. First, Bogen says customers have consistently requested a single-speaker model that offers both 25V/70V and low impedance 8-ohm operation. The company says the CSD1X2U-V2 delivers on this requirement, providing “unparalleled versatility.” Second, the need for ceiling speakers that could be used for intercoms or with a Nyquist PoE (+/++) amplifier module and a transformer module for secondary 25V/70V speaker chains has been a significant factor in the development of this model.
