CCS8 - medium-format surround

  • 8” woofer with 1” compression driver in co-axial configuration
  • High power handling: 280W. continuous (AES)
  • Same tonal balance on both on- and off-axis (‘in every seat’)
  • Dispersion 90° conical
  • 10° slanted baffle for optimised projection

Product description

The CCS8 is a passive-filtered 2-way full range loudspeaker, designed for multi-channel acoustical enhancement and (immersive) surround applications.
The CCS8 features a 8” high quality, bass-reflex-loaded woofer with a 2” voice-coil, placed in an optimally-tuned cabinet for extended low-frequency response.
The high-frequencies are taken care of by a 1”-exit compression-driver coaxially mounted on the woofer.

A high-quality passive 2-way crossover network matches the two components, allowing 305W of continuous (AES) power input, making the CCS8 deliver exceptional performance from a relative compact sized system.

The coaxial speaker arrangement creates a true point-source catering for a very smooth LF/HF blending in all directions, both on-axis as well as off-axis. This is an ideal solution in ceiling-mounted surround applications.

The 10-degree slanted baffle design (CCS8) provides for a low profile in wall mounted applications.
The enclosure design matches the Alcons surround aesthetics; Even in an assembled surround configuration of different systems, there is a consistent, unobtrusive appearance.

The CCS8 is also available with a straight, non-slanted ultra-shallow cabinet for ceiling-mounted applications (or when pre-tilt is not required) as CCS8S.

Multiple options are provided for ceiling and wall mounting; The CCS8 can be wall-mounted with the BRKCS8 tilt U-bracket or wall- and ceiling mounted with most commonly-applied brackets.

For full system performance, CCS8 is to be used in combination with an ALC amplified controller. Driven by the ALC, the CCS8 delivers maximum sound quality and output power with inaudible (power and excursion) protection .
