JBL – JBL AWC159-GY
JBL AWC159 All-Weather Loudspeaker High SPL for Speech and Music Public Address Systems
The JBL AWC159 is a compact, coaxial-driver, 2-way, highly weather-resistant full-range loudspeaker system which is ideal for speech and music in a wide variety of applications. It is comprised of a high-power coaxial 380 mm (15 in) low-frequency driver and 38 mm (1.5 in) high-frequency compression driver. The co-axial design utilizes a unique tapered pole- piece design and transitions to the cone of the low-frequency driver as a large diameter pattern control horn for the high frequencies, eliminating high-frequency beaming and extending pattern control to the lowest possible frequencies. The result is a coaxial speaker with wide, extremely consistent 90° coverage on a broadband basis.
Component features include a Kevlar-reinforced low-frequency cone, well-damped surround, high temperature 75 mm (3 in) voice coil and a reduced distortion design through saturated-gap magnet geometry. The high-frequency compression driver features a patented design, high-temperature polymer diaphragm, and fluid-cooling for high output levels with low distortion.
The JBL AWC159 enclosure is constructed of ABS plus fiberglass and is heavily braced to maximize low-frequency performance. The steel grille is backed with open cell foam and high thread-count mesh, providing protection. The system is rated IP-56, per IEC529 when installed at minimum 5° down-tilt.
The AWC159 is equipped with a 300W 70V/100V multi-tap transformer. Connection is made via outdoor-rated terminals in a recessed terminal cup. Included is a protective terminal compartment cover, along with a gland nut. The high-frequency compression driver features a patented design, high-temperature polymer diaphragm, and fluid-cooling for high output levels with low distortion.
A heavy-duty weather-capable zinc-rich, thick powder coated U-type mounting bracket is included with the JBL AWC159 loudspeaker.
