PlaneWave Speaker Small, Double-throw, Black

The black version of the TOA Electronics PW-1230DB Plane Wave Compact Double Throw Speaker is designed for public address applications that require narrow horizontal and vertical directivity such as broadcasting announcements on a railroad platform or along an escalator pathway.

The speaker utilizes an encased diaphragm with printed voice coil and magnet assembly to generate a magnetic planar waveform that radiates less than a point source speaker. The narrow horizontal and vertical directivity reduces surface reflections and the effects of room coloration. This is especially helpful for environments with hard parallel surfaces such as art galleries and museums where long reverberation times can compromise the clarity of the treble response.

PW-1230DW PlaneWave Speaker Small, Double-throw, White
