The Pure Resonance Audio S8.1 redefines 70-volt outdoor surface mount loudspeakers combining premium audio performance, beauty, durability, and simple functionality in a single concept. The durable IP65-rated dust and water-resistant UV-protected ABS enclosure make the S8.1 perfect for background-to-foreground level music, paging, and general-purpose audio in both indoor and outdoor commercial applications. This 3-way all-weather 70V surface mount loudspeaker encompasses an 8″ graphite woofer and 1.1″ silk tweeter, and a built-in 70V/100V transformer with an 8-ohm bypass. Exclusive OBE (Optimal Bass Enhancement) radiator technology provides an enhanced low-end for a richer and more robust full-range sound. The S8.1 produces impeccable acoustic quality, high-fidelity audio with clean and clear vocal and music reproduction for restaurants, bars, retail stores, fitness gyms, schools, and other business applications that desire deeper bass.

The all-weather IP65-rated (when properly installed) construction protects against direct contact with moisture, water, and dust, while the UV-resistant and strong ABS housing prepares the S8.1 for long-term durability in demanding conditions without compromising performance.

A highly efficient 8″ graphite woofer and 1.1″ silk soft dome tweeter paired with exclusive OBE (Optimal Bass Enhancement) radiator technology deliver an enhanced low-end for 80Hz – 20kHz full-range frequency response, richer sound, lower distortion, increased bandwidth, and improved transient response at 80-watts with 87 dB SPL sensitivity.

The streamlined, contemporary, and elegant housing is thoughtfully designed with an extra touch of modern sophistication.

The unique rear covers with rubber seals protect the Phoenix Euroblock screw terminal connector and the built-in 70 Volt/100 Volt tap transformer switch with an 8-ohm bypass, providing added versatility and weather resistance.

Perfect for foreground and background music, paging, announcements, and general-purpose audio in indoor and outdoor commercial applications.

Safe, quick, simple, and reliable installation with the included water-proof surface mount bracket for vertical or horizontal installation on almost any surface and precision aiming with panning adjustment.
