Product Research

Features

Overview: The Atlas PM8FA is a 70 volt pendant speaker designed for upscale performance in retail and hospitality applications. It's comprised of the FA138 loudspeaker mounted in a specifically tuned and ported enclosure to provide impressive music reproduction and paging intelligibility. It offers a tight 100˚ conical coverage pattern in the 2 kHz band for natural sounding, wide coverage for low height installations. The PM8FA can be easily attached to most overhead surfaces with the included 3 meter cable kit which includes a self-gripping ferrule system. The speaker includes a "cap" that provides a protective, cosmetic cover that hides the mounting attachments and wiring. The pendant speaker can also be mounted using a down pipe (not included) from a hard ceiling and is compatible with any standard 3/4" ceiling fan installation kit.

Connections: Wiring for the PM8FA consists of a nine terminal set-screw strip that includes an 8Ω bypass connection and individual set-screw terminals for 1.9 W, 3.8 W, 7.5 W, 15 W, 30 W, and 60 W tap settings. An included jumper wire gets removed when doing an 8Ω connection.

Specifications:

  • Power Rating: 100 Watts peak, 70 watts RMS
  • 70.7V Taps: 1.9, 3.8, 7.5, 15, 30, 60 Watts
  • Frequency Response: 60 Hz - 20 kHz (+/- 5 dB)
  • Sensitivity (1W / 1M): 90 dB average
  • Dispersion Angle: 100˚
  • Woofer: 8" Polypropylene cone with SBR surround
  • HF Driver: Coaxially mounted PEI dome tweeter
  • Dimensions: Height - 16.62", Diameter - 12.25"
  • Weight: 25 lbs.
