8-inch Ultra-Compact Horn-Loaded Triaxial Three-Way
EN54-24 Certified

The R.35-3896-EN is an EN54-24 certified, triaxial 8-inch Carbon Ring Cone loudspeaker featuring Community’s exclusive MultiSource Waveguide™ technology which adeptly integrates the output from dual midrange compression drivers and a 1-inch exit HF compression driver into a single coherent source. Fully passive, it is voiced for flat musical reproduction without EQ and delivers class-leading SPL levels for a loudspeaker of its size.


The R.35-3896-EN meets the need for a high performance compact loudspeaker for fill and supplementary areas in larger venues and for smaller venues wanting to conform to EN54 standards.  With outstanding voice and music quality, the R.35-3896-EN is equally suitable for indoor and outdoor use in a wide variety of applications, including background and foreground music and announcement systems in corporate A/V, leisure centers, swimming pools, theaters, night clubs, shopping malls, stadiums, cruise ships, theme parks and factories. 


The high output, 3-inch voice coil, 8-inch carbon ring cone LF driver features a flange-less frame design that permits a cone area nearly equivalent to a typical 10-inch driver, resulting in high sensitivity and increased LF extension.  The low LF/MR passive crossover point results in improved midrange pattern control and elimination of horn coloration in the LF response.  With a built-in autoformer, the R.35-3896-EN is certified for use in 100V distributed system applications.
