The Extron SoundField® XD model SF 26CT LP is a low profile 6.5″ two-way ceiling speaker featuring a 4.2″ (107 mm) deep composite back can for use in restricted height plenum environments. The driver complement includes a 6.5″ (165 mm) woofer coupled to a 3/4″ (19 mm) ferrofluid-cooled dome tweeter. The SF 26CT LP provides a wide and smooth frequency range of 85 Hz to 20 kHz and is engineered with a 95° conical dispersion that ensures excellent on and off axis voice intelligibility. A power rating of 130 watts continuous program also gives this speaker plenty of headroom for music reproduction in moderate to high output systems.

The SF 26CT LP offers both direct 8 ohm and 70/100 volt operation with a behind-the-grille, six position power selector switch. The SF 26CT LP continues the new paradigm in speaker technology for pro AV applications that began with the Extron SF 26CT. With innovative materials, modular construction, and unique features, these SoundField XD speakers provide significant savings and superior performance.
