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.
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.
