The Ashby-8C self-powered, ceiling-mounted loudspeaker provides wide coverage and low distortion, even at high sound levels, for applications that require accurate music reproduction and intelligible voice. The Ashby-8C out performs all in-ceiling loudspeakers of comparable size.
The Ashby-8C requires an external MPS488HP IntelligentDC power supply. The 19-in (1 RU) unit distributes DC power and balanced audio to Ashby loudspeakers or other Meyer Sound IntelligentDC loudspeakers.
