Product Research


Overview: The Soundtube HP82-EZ is a pendant-mount speaker designed for 25, 70, and 100 volt applications, featuring a 8" coaxial polypropylene driver with a butyl rubber surround and a 0.75" silk dome tweeter housed in an ABS enclosure. The HP82-EZ also features Soundtube's BroadBeam Ring technology for consistently smooth high frequencies, making it ideal for open ceiling applications in retail stores, restaurants, educational facilities, and outdoor patio areas.

Enclosure: The HP82-EZ housing offers long lasting performance and durability with its injection molded ABS enclosure with glass fiber reinforcement, along with a powder-coated aluminum grill, both of which are paintable. All components have been weatherized for indoor/outdoor applications and carry both UL1480 UEAY and UL2239 ratings.

25/70/100 Volt: Designed primarily for distributed systems, the HP82-EZ includes a 64 watt transformer housed inside the speaker enclosure. Wiring connections consist of a 4-terminal ceramic terminal strip on top of the speaker that can accept speaker wire from 22 - 14 gauge in size. One set is provided as the input while the other paralleled terminals can be used for daisy-chaining multiple speakers. A rotary dial on the top of the speaker is provided for the following tap selections along with a 16Ω bypass selection:

  • 25V: 1W, 2W, 4W, and 8W
  • 70V: 4W, 8W, 16W,  32W, and 64W
  • 100V: 8W, 16W, 32W, and 64W
  • 16Ω

Installation: The pendant speaker can be mounted 2 ways; either with the included 10' galvanized steel cable suspension system or direct-to-conduit mounting using the threaded opening in the cover plate. The top of the speaker housing contains the suspension point with 3 slots for attaching cables; 1 for the main support cable and one for the secondary safety line (both are included). Two Gripple SpeedClamp wire hangers are included that allow the suspension cable length to be easily adjusted. If using the suspension cables, a rubber weather plug is provided to seal the wire connection on top of the cover plate. If mounting the speaker direct-to-conduit, the conduit (not provided) threads into the cover plate with the speaker wires and a safety cable running through it.
