8" Two-Way All-Purpose Loudspeaker

Perfect for foreground or background distributed
sound applications in indoor or outdoor residential,
commercial or recreational environments, the
new compact, full-range 70-volt CA-800T
loudspeaker was designed for those who know
better than to expect mediocre output.
Building on the success of our popular CA-8T
model, which has been used in a countless number
of high-profile installations all over the U.S., the CA-
800T version features enhanced cosmetics, added
mounting flexibility and even better performance.
For efficiency and reliability, the CA-800T has
been re-voiced and employs a high-power,
extended range low frequency driver. It features an
8-inch IMG cone woofer and 1-inch titanium dome
tweeter coupled to a square-mouth 90-degree by
90-degree Tractrix Horn, which allows the
speaker to be mounted horizontally or vertically
without affecting the coverage pattern.
Available in black or white, this speaker has a
durable UV-resistant all-weather enclosure that
includes an internal multi-tap transformer with
expanded range and a switchable direct 8-ohm
bypass. The tap settings for the CA-800T at 70V are
60W, 30W, 15W, 7.5W and 3.7W. The added 3.7W
tap setting offers further placement flexibility. The
settings for 100V are 60W, 30W, 15W and 7.5W.
The included heavy gauge zinc C-bracket provides
added mounting strength. It attaches to the
enclosures integral center-of-gravity balanced
threaded studs that are positioned inside the
speaker and to the oversized knobs, ensuring
positive position-lock. Connections are provided via
four-position barrier strips. This allows an installer
to use two connectors for inputs and two for passthroughs,
making it easier to daisy chain.
The CA-800Ts updated grille design stays securely
fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation
for increased weather resistance and years of
maintenance-free protection regardless of the
climate or environment. The speakers improved
input cup allows for easier drainage and the added
3/8-16 threaded insert for use with optional
mounts offers better placement flexibility.
