MCS - Metal Columnar Speaker Systems

MCS20T / MCS40T / MCS80T
Penton Audio's high-performance MCS Series Columnar Speaker Systems have robust, weather-resistant construction, yet are surprisingly stylish.

Each model uses 3.5" full-range speakers (2, 4 and 8 respectively), crossing over to a horn tweeter. Connection is via a 7" cable. The opposite end offers a low-profile screwdriver tap selector that allows 70.7-volt constant-voltage use. The MCS20T and MCS80T also have 4- ohm secondary outputs, while the MCS40T has an 8-ohm. Weather resistance is provided by coated paper cones, aluminum housings, mesh screens and a cable gland nut.

Finished in white (MCS40T-B in black), they may be mounted using the matching angle bracket provided.

Columns blend well with angular architecture. Similar to all well designed columns, the MCS Series controls dispersion over the long axis, reducing feedback and dramatically increasing output levels in the same axis when compared to a single speaker. Vertical dispersion remains unaffected.

The durability, weather-resistance and performance of the stylish MCS units make them an intelligent choice for countless applications. Used in concert with other speaker systems, voice announce and background music, in transportation and educational facilities. They are also used on atriums, factories, churches, show arenas and sports venues. The length of the flat black MCS40T-B and slim design makes it an excellent choice for use with flat LCD projector screens.
