PDFCeiling 309 Spec Sheet (pdf)

The Electro-Voice® 309 series loudspeaker systems are two-way loudspeakers with 8" low-frequency cones and high temperature voice-coil assemblies coaxially mounted with wide-dispersion cone tweeters. The dual magnet construction allows each speaker to be structurally, magnetically, electrically and mechanically independent of the other. The 309-8A/309-4T/309-8T utilize a single section crossover network, centered at 3,000 Hz, which provides 6 dB of attenuation for the tweeter outside its operating range. These components are designed to work together as a complete system of in-ceiling loudspeakers and accessories. They provide wide dispersion, high-efficiency, high maximum output, ease of installation and wide-range reproduction of music of voice.
