The Electro-Voice ® EVID C8.2HC is an 8" coaxial transducer featuring an innovative waveguide (patent pending) that provides directivity control to 1 kHz. It provides much better music fidelity and speech intelligibility in spaces with high ceiling heights than typical flush units are capable of. Its 75° coverage pattern provides the same coverage area when used in a 21’ ceiling as a typical flush mount mounted unit in an 8’ ceiling.

This loudspeaker system is a complete two-way ceiling loudspeaker package. The package consists of a bezel/waveguide assembly, grille, rear enclosure, 8-inch coax two-way loudspeaker with waveguide coupled titanium coated dome tweeter and internal line-matching transformer.

The C8.2HC utilizes a transformer that offers a selection of 7.5 (70-V only), 15, 30 or 60 watts delivered to the loudspeaker system using either 70-V or 100-V lines, or 8-ohm bypass. Selection is via a convenient switch on the front of the waveguide.

The perforated grille is finished in semi-gloss white powder-coated enamel. The baffle and bezel are constructed from UL 94V-0 rated ABS. The rear enclosure, with fiberglass damping material, provides an optimum internal volume for extended lowfrequency performance. A rear cover, with provisions for a junction box fitting, provides access to a 4-pin terminal block that allows direct connection to the speaker with 12 gauge wire and provides pass through to additional speakers. A tile bridge is included for safe suspension of the C8.2HC ceiling system in a drop ceiling that uses mineral wool, or other fiber-based ceiling tiles.

The EVID line of ceiling speakers has been designed to work together as a complete system in a wide range of different ceiling constructions. They provide controlled dispersion, high-efficiency, high-maximum output, ease of installation, and wide-range reproduction of music or voice.
