Extron just introduced the CS 1226T Plus SpeedMount Ceiling Speaker System, a patented low profile, plenum rated two-piece speaker system delivering improved performance. It consists of the CS 120P plenum rated enclosure and a CS 26T Plus two-way speaker cartridge. The enclosure installs quickly into 2’x2′ (61 cm x 61 cm) or 600 mm x 600 mm suspended ceilings. The speaker cartridge features a 6.5″ (16.5 cm) woofer and a 3/4″ (1.9 cm) ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter in a coaxial design, with a unique tweeter bridge that delivers smooth off-axis response. With a wide 112° coverage angle and an extended frequency range of 42 Hz to 20 kHz, the CS 1226T Plus offers exceptional voice intelligibility and natural sounding music reproduction. The CS 1226T Plus is available as a complete assembly, or the CS 120P enclosure and CS 26T Plus speaker cartridge can be purchased separately to accommodate division-of-labor installations, with the enclosures installed during rough-in and the speaker cartridges during final installation.
The CS 120P plenum enclosure installs quickly into 2′ x 2′ or metric 600×600 mm suspended ceiling grids. It features a shallow 5″ (12.7 cm) profile, which simplifies installation into congested ceiling spaces around piping and ducts. The integrated tile bridge of the enclosure rests with the ceiling tile on the grid, evenly distributing the weight of the enclosure and speaker cartridge. This avoids the need to assemble V-rails and C-rings, greatly reducing the number of installation steps and the chances of losing installation hardware.
The CS 26T Plus speaker cartridge can be used in 70/100 volt or 8 ohm operation with a behind-the-grille, six-position selector switch. It installs quickly and easily by itself or into the CS 120P enclosure. The CS 26T Plus is designed with wide, uniform coverage to eliminate hot spots and allow for greater flexibility in speaker spacing and placement. With an exceptional frequency range, this speaker is optimized for a wide range of paging and audio presentation applications for music, program, and voice. It also features a power rating of 60 watts continuous pink noise and 120 watts continuous program, and a tuned pass reflex port optimized for the CS 120P enclosure. The CS 26T Plus features a magnetically attached grille and a thin-edged bezel for a refined appearance on the ceiling.
