A dual voice coil ceiling speaker allows both of a stereo's channels to drive a single cone, playing both the left and the right channel through a single speaker cone. The OSD Audio MK690TT Dual Voice Coil Trimless Ceiling Speaker with Thin Bezel is available at Outdoor Speaker Depot to connect both a right and left speaker from a single source. Use it in small spaces, whether it's a narrow hallway or a big closet, to combine the sound from both speakers into a full range output mono output. The speaker has three position contour switches for both high (-3dB, 0) and low (+3dB) frequencies accessible from the front of the speaker. This way, the speaker can be tuned for whichever room where it's actually being employed. The trimless design means that the speakers are flush mounted and can blend into the decor of any room without looking awkward or out of place. The speakers handle 150 watts and have 8 Ohm impedance and a frequency response of 50Hz - 22kHz. This product comes with a 10-year warranty.
The Convenience of Contour Switches
This speaker also features three position contour switches for both High and Low Frequencies (-3dB, 0 & +3dB) accessible from the front of the speaker. This feature allows the speaker to be tuned to match the actual room where it is being utilized. In addition, a 4 and 8 ohm switch allows the speaker to be connected as stereo pairs (connecting only one of the available voice coils of each of the two speakers, the switch set to 4 ohms). This provides a natural step up to a standard pair of 2-way speakers featuring only one tweeter per speaker.
The Dual Tweeters of the MK690TT double the sound field in both the Single Stereo Summed Mono setting (8 ohms setting) or when utilized as a stereo pair (4 ohm setting).
What Is a Dual Voice Coil Ceiling Speaker?
A Dual Voice Coil (DVC) Ceiling Speaker uses a special voice coil cone design that allows both channels of a stereo system to drive one cone. Sounds complicated but it's not. Basically, a DVC speaker plays both right and left channels through one speaker cone. You get both channels but without the acoustic separation that happens with two speakers. There are places like bathrooms, closets or hallways that just can’t accommodate multiple speakers so a DVC speaker solves the problem and produces great sound.
Our clever engineers added a 4 or 8 ohm switch so the speaker to be converted to a single mono speaker and combined with a second ACEMK690TT. Now you have a stereo pair of speakers where only one of the voice coils is connected on each speaker. This setup dramatically increases coverage in your zone because the dual tweeters are active and provide additional dispersion of high frequencies for the pair. The switch is set to 8 ohm when connecting both voice coils in the single speaker application and set to 4 ohm when used as stereo pair with just one voice coil connected.
Trimless Speakers are ideal for new construction or retrofit. These elegant, flush mounted speakers blend effortlessly into any room interior and offer outstanding audio performance. The secret behind these stealthy speakers are the micro flange grilles attached by extremely powerful magnets that stay put for quick and easy installation.
