More details on the OSD Forza 5 Pendant Speaker

Product Research

Features

Overview: The OSD Forza 5 pendant speaker is designed for distributed 70/100V audio systems in home and commercial applications. The pendant speaker is an ideal choice for spaces with irregular or uneven architectural features such as vaulted ceilings in high-end home environments, malls, restaurants, bars, museums, and other spaces where multiple speakers are required and placement is challenging.

Speaker Design: The Forza 5 2-way pendant speaker features a 5.25" polypropylene woofer and a 1" silk dome tweeter that can provide accurate, full-range sound with a wide 120˚ dispersion pattern. Both drivers are housed in a sealed enclosure that's UV-resistant and is IP66 rated, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

70/100V & 8Ω: The OSD Forza 5 features a built-in 15 watt 70/100V transformer for commercial applications. An 8Ω bypass also allows it to be used in a "standard" speaker configuration. A tap-dial on top of the speaker provides selections for the following:

  • 70V: 1.87W, 3.75W, 7.5W, and 15W.
  • 100V: 3.75W, 7.5W, and 15W
  • 8Ω: Bypass

Connection: Wiring connections to the Forza 5 pendant speaker are made through a 4-pin Euroblock connector located on top of the speaker, accommodating speaker wire up to 14-gauge. Two pins are used for the connection from an amplifier while the other two pins are used for daisy-chaining the signal out to additional speakers. An included strain relief attachment helps prevent the wire connection from being pulled loose (speaker wire sold separately).

Mounting: Designed for pendant mounting, the Forza 5 includes a 40" (3.3') suspension cable with two locking-carabiners. The cable attaches to the speaker using the provided eye-bolt that threads into the top of the speaker housing, while the other end can be attached to a mounting point in the ceiling. A top cover is provided to protect the tap dial and Euroblock wiring connector.

Optional Mounting: The optional Landscape and Surface Mount Kit, found here, can be used for mounting the Forza 5 to a wall or placed on the ground in an outdoor landscape installation. The wall mount features a ball-in-socket bracket that allows the speaker to be precisely aimed. For landscape installation, a ground stake and mounting plate are included.
