WET X speakers devised for outdoor applications

Battling the elements is part and parcel of stadium management so products designed specifically for outdoor use are welcome. Community has designed a new series of loudspeakers, WET X, which comprises 13 new models of its WET Series. WET X’s hand-laid fibreglass enclosures are internally lined with marine-grade plywood. Community says that the speakers use innovative drivers to provide premium sound quality for both outdoor and indoor venues.

WET X loudspeakers contain a large diaphragm 1.4-inch exit high frequency compression driver and can produce the same output levels as the largest WET II loudspeakers but in enclosures only half the size. The low frequency cone and internal circuitry have Community’s proprietary Envirotech coating for improved weather-resistance. The WX218SDF, a downfire dual 18-inch model, adds an ultra-high-performance subwoofer to the line.

WET X enclosures feature a modified trapezoidal silhouette that brings a more traditional look and feel to the loudspeakers while providing the same outdoor direct exposure resistance and streamlined shape to reduce wind load.

All of the wood is resin-sealed to reinforce the enclosure’s weather resistance. The smooth glossy outer layer is available in black or white, with custom paint colours optional. All models include a dual-layer powder-coated stainless steel mounting bracket.
