Manufacturers Product Description
The Tannoy CMS 503ICT LP is a wide bandwidth, high power-handling and high sensitivity loudspeaker built around CMS 3.0 - the third generation of Tannoy's revolutionary Ceiling Monitor System technology. Based around the standard CMS 503ICT model, but with a greatly reduced back-can depth, the ultra low-profile CMS 503ICT LP has been engineered specifically for applications where ceiling cavity dimensions are a critical limiting factor.This specialized ceiling device has all the sonic performance of the standard CMS 503ICT, in a much shallower profile package, achieving similar back-can volume by virtue of slightly larger diameter (and hole cut-out size). The point source configuration of the Tannoy ICT™ driver's mid-bass and tweeter sections ensures a wide and controlled dispersion for optimum coverage, avoiding the significant energy losses in the vertical plane at the crossover frequency that are inherent in typical two-way designs.The CMS 503ICT LP utilizes a 16 ohm driver, making it ideal for use in high performance low- impedance systems (with optimized performance when used in conjunction with Lab.gruppen LUCIA amplifiers). The low-insertion loss 30 W transformer features convenient front bezel switching for taps at 30 W, 15W and 7.5 W, with an additional 3.75 W tap for traditional constant voltage systems.The CMS 503ICT LP also features extra clamp extension to accommodate thicker ceiling panels, and a locking design that prevents inadvertent over-screwing. Magnetic grille attachment enables easy removal and fitting for custom painting and tapping changes with grilles now available as either traditional style (inset in bezel) or new Arco™ style, which conceals the entire unit for architect-friendly aesthetic appeal.The CMS 503ICT LP is a blind mount loudspeaker device, supplied with an integral back-can, ready to install as a single unit. The shallow-profile zinc plated steel back-can has an integrated, recessed termination box. The removable locking connector has screw terminals for secure wire termination and loop-thru facility. Strain relief is provided by a clamping mechanism for use with plenum-rated cable or conduit, while new spring-loaded and self-aligning clamps make for even quicker and easier installation. CMS 503ICT LP is supplied with classic grille, two tile support rails and one C-ring; Arco grille and plaster (mud) ring are available as optional accessories.
