Overview: The Klipsch CA-800-TSW is an all-purpose,
all-weather subwoofer that delivers low frequency sound in outdoor applications.
This subwoofer has been designed to complement the Klipsch CA Series and other
small to medium-sized full-range speaker installations. The CA-800-TSW can
deliver strong bass response in a variety of applications.
8" Woofer: The CA-800-TSW's 8" woofer is constructed form
UV-resistant, glass-reinforced polypropylene and is durable against the
elements. The Klipsch CA-800-TSW delivers a deep, accurate bass through its
8-inch, long excursion driver that has a high-temperature voice coil attached to
an IMG cone which is light weight and offers excellent rigidity and water
resistance. The 8" woofer can handle up to 150 watts.
Crossover: The CA-800-TSW incorporates a built-in low-pass
crossover that ensures a seamless blend between the subwoofer and your
high-frequency outdoor speakers. The Klipsch all-weather subwoofer features an
integrated 12dB/Octave low-pass fixed at 150Hz.
Vented Weather Resistant Enclosure: The 8" woofer is housed
inside a bass-reflex, UV-resistant, all-weather ABS enclosure for added
efficiency and bass response. The Klipsch CA-8000TSW's enclosure is paintable
and features a rustproof aluminum grille, which is also paintable. The grille
stays securely fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation for increased
weather resistance and years of maintenance-free protection regardless of the
climate or environment.
Multi-Tap Transformer: The CA-800-TSW includes a multi-tap
transformer for 70 or 100 volt installations. There is also a bypass position
that allows normal 8-ohm operation for installations that do not require a
transformer. The switch is on the back of the speaker and can be set using a
small flat-head screwdriver.
Connections: The Klipsch CA-800-TSW is equipped with 4
barrier-strip, gold-plated connectors for connecting the subwoofer to your
Placement: The Klipsch all-weather subwoofer is perfect for
patios, decks, swimming pools, porches, or an other place where exposure to the
elements make conventional loudspeaker usage unsuitable. The CA-800-TSW can be
installed in a variety of locations due to bass frequencies being less
directional than high frequencies. You will achieve better results if it is
installed in a corner or near a wall where additional energy can be reflected
from the walls.
Mounting: The Klipsch CA-800TSW comes supplied with a
removable C-style mounting bracket. The included heavy-gauge powder-coated zinc
C-bracket provides added mounting strength. This bracket attaches to the
subwoofer with the supplied low profile knobs that thread onto the top and
bottom studs protruding from the cabinet. This allows the subwoofer to be
angled to the left or right when mounted vertically, or up and down when mounted
horizontally. The additional 3/8"-16 threaded insert allows for use with
optional mount brackets to offer even better placement flexibility.
