JBL, unit of Harman International Industries, has introduced in-ceiling loudspeakers at InfoComm, which are designed to offer cost-effective and easy installation. The 8100 series features four and eight-inch models and is claimed to provide high sensitivity, low distortion and smooth frequency response.

Both speakers feature high sensitivity for system efficiency and full-range response, making them ideal for small to medium background music systems. Low-saturation transformers with taps as low as 0.75 Watts allow the use of many speakers on 70V/100V distributed loudspeaker system lines. The 8100 Series are “open-back” ceiling speakers with pre-attached dog-ears, offering an affordable solution for commercial applications that do not require backcans.

“The JBL 8100 Series in-ceiling loudspeakers provide an optimal combination of affordability and quality,” said Rick Kamlet, senior market director of commercial sound at JBL Professional. “Their ease of installation and wide coverage makes them a great fit for cost-effective installations in a variety of environments.”
