SoundTube Entertainment has announced a new line of 8-inch in-ceiling speakers designed for fire signaling applications. The CM82-EZ-FS and CM82-EZs-FS speakers meet UL 1480 UUMW requirements for fire protection signaling and come with integrated steel backboxes for compliance with UL 2043 plenum standards.

The speakers incorporate an 8-inch polypropylene woofer with butyl rubber surround and a 1-inch silk tweeter, providing superior voice intelligibility with an average coverage angle of 95 degrees (2 to 10 kHz), according to the company. A 10 µF capacitor is included on the input circuit for use with DC supervision systems, and a 10W transformer is included in each unit.

The speakers are installed via a constant-tension, fixed-wing mounting system, and include a 21 gauge steel tile bridge. Models are available in both 3.5-inch short-can and standard (5.75-inch) backcan depths.

"We're pleased to add this category of speakers to our line of in-ceiling products," said Duke Ducoff, vice president of sales for MSE Audio, SoundTube's parent company, in a statement. "Integrators can now cover all in-ceiling speaker needs, including emergency notification, with the audio performance they have come to expect from SoundTube."
