USA - InfoComm 2019 sees the US debut of yet another enhancement to Peavey’s ElementsTM C Series weatherproof loudspeakers.
Following last year’s announcement of the upgrade from IP45 to IP56 rating, InfoComm 2019 sees the unveiling of marine-grade versions that are specially designed to withstand the ravages of salt water, making them suitable for cruise ships, swimming pools or coastal outdoor applications such as theme parks and resorts, fun fairs, restaurants and more. The marine-grade versions, denoted by a CS suffix, will be available alongside the standard IP56-rated Elements range.
The American-made Elements CS Series of composite enclosures are constructed from an advanced composite fibreboard 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.
In order to qualify for marine-grade ranking, all metal components have been upgraded to 316 stainless steel for even higher resistance to pitting and corrosion. This includes the front grille which is now stainless steel rather than aluminium, and the permeable hydrophobic membrane between the speaker and the grille has also been upgraded. The number of mounting points has been reduced in order to reduce the risk of corrosion.
The CS versions also feature an integrated multi-tap transformer with 70V, 100V and 8 Ohm taps along with removeable plugs for all ports. All models are available in black or UV-protected marine-grade white.
Peavey Commercial Audio’s North American sales manager, Scott Schumer, comments, “We developed the CS versions in direct response to requests from a number of customers. One client in particular specifically required marine-grade speakers for a cruise ship installation and wanted to use Elements, so it made sense to build them. It’s clearly a very logical extension to a successful range, so we were only too happy to oblige.”
