Product Research

Features

Overview: The Soundtube CM62-BMG is a 2-way, blind-mount, in-ceiling speaker featuring a coaxially mounted 6.5" woofer and a 1.0" tweeter in a drawn steel backcan. The speaker features transformer tap settings for 25, 70, and 100 volt operation, and also includes a 16Ω bypass. Designed specifically for indoor background music, the CM62-BMG is ideal for hotels, restaurants, airports, churches, retail stores, conference rooms, and more.

Drivers: The CM62-BMG features a 6.5" polypropylene woofer with a rubber surround along with a 1.0" silk dome tweeter, all mounted in a ported steel backcan enclosure. This combination delivers high efficiency and performance across the operating bandwidth with a frequency response of 54Hz - 20kHz (-3db). Able to handle up to 50 watts RMS (100 watts Program power) and with a sensitivity of 84.5 dB, the CM62-BMG can provide clear powerful sound with a coverage angle of up to 115˚ (average between 2kHz - 10kHz).

Enclosure: The CM62-BMG is housed in a drawn steel backcan with a ported ABS plastic front baffle providing added musicality with a bass response down to 50Hz (-10dB). Soundtube's BroadBeam Ring technology offers extended midrange clarity and ultra wide off-axis performance. The speaker includes a steel-mesh grille that can be painted to match the room color and includes an attached safety restraint lanyard. The CM62-BMG enclosure carries both UL1480 and UL2043 certifications and is CE and RoHS approved.

Mounting: Installation of the speaker is done blind-mount using a constant-tension fixed-wing mounting system. Two winged assemblies come pre-mounted to each side the speaker. Once the speaker is slid into the ceiling opening 2 Phillips-head screws on the front of the speaker are tightened. This expands out the mounting arms providing tension on the backside of the mounting surface. The CM62-BMG can be mounted to ceilings ranging in thickness from 0.035 to 1.6 inches, including drop-ceilings using the optional Tile Bridge. Three secondary attachment points are provided on the back of the speaker for an additional safety line.

25/70/100 Volt: The CM62-BMG can be used in 25, 70, and 100 volt applications and includes a 16Ω bypass selection. A tap selection dial on the front of the speaker allows for easy configuration without having to remove the speaker from the ceiling. The following tap settings are available:

  • 25 Volt: 0.3W, 0.5W, 1W, 2W, and 4W
  • 70 Volt: 2W, 4W, 8W, 16W, and 32W
  • 100 Volt: 4W, 8W, 16W, and 32W
  • 16Ω

Terminals: A 4-teriminal ceramic terminal strip is provided for wiring connections. One set of terminals provides the signal input while the other set provides a pass-thru for daisy-chaining multiple speakers. Each terminal can accommodate speaker wire up to 12 gauge in size and includes a set-screw to hold the wire firmly in place.
