Tannoy OCV Series
At InfoComm 2011 in Orlando, Tannoy unveils a new range of ‘open ceiling’ hanging-pendant loudspeakers, the OCV Series, in a self-contained cylindrical enclosure.
Available in black or white as standard, the OCV 6 and OCV 8, OCV Series is an open-ceiling speaker system. Each model is built around a mid-bass driver (150mm/6-inch or 200mm/8-inch respectively) with a coaxially-mounted 19mm/0.75-inch high-frequency section – all mounted in the cylindrical steel enclosure with mild steel powder coated grille. The enclosure is IP54 rated for dust and water ingress, UV resistant.
Both the OCV 6 and OCV 8 have a 60W line transformer configurable via a top-mounted rotary tapping switch, while audio connection is via an adjacent euroblock connector. Both connector and tapping switch are protected by a rubber weather boot, which fits in place after connections has been made. Tannoy provides the required hardware for hanging as standard, including steel wires, gripple speed clamp and 3/8-inch threaded rod adapter – making installation simple and time-efficient.
The OCV Series is expected to ship in August 2011.
