Community's WET family of all-weather, all-purpose loudspeakers has grown with the addition of models WET215-99H and WET2W8, offered in rugged, multilayer glass-composite packages.

The WET215-99H is an active, bi-amped, two-way device equipped with a 15-inch woofer and 1.5-inch exit high-frequency compression driver. Operable from 50 to 18k Hz with 100dB SPL (1W/1m) sensitivity and a maximum output of 123dB SPL/130dB SPL peak, the loudspeaker offers power handling figures of 200W RMS, 500W program when optioned with a high-performance passive crossover.

Equipped with a pair of 8-inch, low-frequency, transducers-mounted in a "Super-V" configuration on each side of a single 1-inch exit titanium high-frequency driver, the WET2W8 can be used for under-balcony fill speaker indoors or out, as well as stage rail fill or any foreground music application. Centrally placed on an ultrawide, 120-degree pattern control horn to provide uniform coverage over the widest possible bandwidth, the WET2W8's LF/HF driver combination prevents detrimental horizontal lobing from occurring in the vocal range. The resulting performance is marked by tight midrange pattern control.

The enclosures and face plates on both new models are constructed using a hand-laminated, multilayer, black-glass composite. LF cones in each device are made of a low-mass, extremely rigid carbon fiber. Sporting their own integral mounting points, the loudspeakers also incorporate other weather-resistant features such as stainless-steel hardware and Community's Weather-Stop™ grille.

Suggested prices for the WET-21599H and WET2W8 are $2,832 and $1,075, respectively.
