Tannoy overhauls driver tech for 3rd gen ceiling speakers

Tannoy launched five in-ceiling speakers at InfoComm 2014, marking the third generation of its CMS system.

CMS 3.0 features a new development of the company’s Dual Concentric transducer technology and comprises CMS 403DCe, CMS 503DC, CMS 603DC and CMS 803DC and the CMS 803DCQ 8” high-Q model, designed for high-ceiling/longer throw applications.

The new driver features proprietary Omnimagnet technology and a Torus Ogive Waveguide assembly, claimed to deliver more consistent and controlled directivity, with improvement in higher frequency ranges.
