FAQ

Product options

Almost all of our speakers are made in 8 ohm and 20 ohm and with transformer as standard products. You will notice that the speaker names in all of our datasheets has a (T) in them (HP-20 T). The T in our product names means that it is is the transformer version. If you want to order a speaker in 8 ohm, omit the T (HP-20, 8 ohm).
Horn speakers can be cusomized in all kinds of impedances from 2 – 50 ohm or more.

What is ATEX

Atex stands for ATmospheres EXplosibles “potentially explosive atmospheres”. Explosive atmospheres can be caused by:

  • Flammable gases
  • Mists
  • Vapours
  • Combustible dusts.

Explosive Atmosphere

Explosion Protection

An explosive atmosphere is built up by a mixture of flammable gases, vapours, mists or dust with atmosphere air. If the mixture (flammable material/air) has the right ratio it can be an ignition source and create an explosion.

 

Factors for creating an explosion:

 

  1. Air (or in fact oxygen in the air)
  2. Flammable material (substance)
  3. Ignition source

100V systems?

100V Line speaker systems are sometimes referred to as “constant-voltage system” it is the most economical way to install a multi-speaker sound system. The term 100V system relates to the maximum output voltage of the amplifier. To generate this high voltage the amplifier is equipped with a step-up transformer, which increases the normal output voltage of around 30 Volts, up to 100 Volts

 

The main difference between a low-impedance speaker system (4 or 8 Ohms) is the way the individual loudspeakers are connected to the amplifier, with the conventional low-impedance system special care has to be taken to maintain the correct impedance for the amplifier.

 

In a 100V line system, a large number of single loudspeakers each equipped with a step-down transformer can be connected to one single speaker cable. With the 100V line installation, each speaker or speaker cabinet is equipped with a step-down transformer

 

A step-down transformer has relatively high impedance at the primary side and the secondary side of the transformer matches the speaker impedance (typically 8 Ohms). The primary side of the transformer normally has several tapping’s, these are marked in watts and are used to enable each speaker to be set at different volume levels. The total primary wattage should not exceed 90% of the amplifiers output. A step-down transformer will be required for each loudspeaker cabinet connected to the amplifier.
