SP8053 Series Drivers

SP816TCO
The Penton Audio SP816TCO is a 20-watt, 8" full-range speaker assembly. This premium model uses a coaxial driver with 3-inch-wide cone tweeter for smooth dispersion and long-term reliability.

High-quality components are used in the manufacture of each Penton speaker. These include steel baskets with a rust preventative coating, twin cones (on the tweeter an aluminum voice coil) and high-temperature copper voice coil on the low-frequency driver.

This family uses speaker baskets that mount on standard bolt circles of 7.626" (195 mm). They may be mounted in various types of speaker enclosures and mate with nearly all popular mounting accessories including Penton G8M (CRS) or G8P (ABS) grilles, and BBX8B enclosure with BRG8B tile bridge. Standard mounting fasteners are also available.

The assembly uses a pre-mounted 5-watt, 70.7/25-volt transformer with an insertion loss no higher than 1.5 dB. 6" five-conductor, color-coded wire provides easy connection via bare ends to 5, 2, 1, 0.5 and 0.25 watt taps.

SP Series coaxial loudspeakers are applicable for voice announce, background/foreground music and signal reproduction.

SP8053 / SP8053H / SP8053T
The Penton Audio SP8053 Series are 8" 10-watt, twin-cone, full-range speaker assemblies. Each is designed for long-term reliability, smooth frequency response and wide dispersion.

Each model in this series is made using high quality components including steel baskets treated with rust-preventative coating, copper voice coils, high performance transformers and twin cones.

Speaker baskets mount on a standard bolt circle of 7.625" (195 mm) and mate with nearly all popular mounting accessories including Penton G8M (CRS) or G8P (ABS) grilles and BBX8B enclosure with BRG8B tile bridge. Standard mounting fasteners are also available.

The SP8053 is an 8-ohm model available as a stand alone or ready to accept customer supplied transformer.

The SP8053T assembly uses the same 8-ohm, twin-cone driver, but adds a premounted 5-watt 70.7/25-volt transformer. Connection is made directly via wire nuts (see specifications).

Identical in basic design, the SP8053H utilizes a 45-ohm voice coil.

Models are applicable for situations including voice announce, background music, signal reproduction and applications requiring clear audio reproduction.
