Stadium Series 8-Inch 2-Way Point Source Outdoor Loudspeaker

The S-8A is the rugged, weather-engineered version of our W-8A point-source loudspeaker. Extremely compact in size, it’s great for small athletic fields or to augment a larger system at football and soccer fields, stadiums, and amusement parks. The S-8A stands out in applications such as outdoor dining areas, outdoor wedding chapels, stadium restrooms, ticket booths, and filling blind spots between larger arrays.

The S-8A combines a long-throw, 8-inch bass transducer with a circular waveguide of 1-inch aperture diameter. It is available as a passive system.
