The AC18/95 is a compact full-range
loudspeaker system designed to
provide maximum bandwidth and SPL
in a single system package and yet be
visually unobtrusive. The enclosure
design allows for installation very close
to walls and ceilings making it an ideal
choice for under balcony, column, or
wall mounting. The high frequency
device is a 1" exit compression driver
integrated into a newly designed 90° x
50° rotatable PT™ (Progressive
Transition) waveguide providing even
coverage throughout the intended
listening area. The combination exhibits
smooth power response resulting in
extremely natural voicing. The AC18/95
utilizes an 8" Symmetrical Field
Geometry (SFG™) LF Transducer with a
copper-clad aluminum edge wound
2.5" voice coil and a copper-clad pole
piece that improves performance by
reducing voice coil inductance and
distortion.
The rugged multi-ply hardwood
enclosure is designed to work in the
vertical plane as well as in the
horizontal plane. Mounting points are
provided for an optional U-bracket and
for an OmniMount® type bracket. The
AC18/95 is also equipped with
attachment points located on the
bottom of the enclosure for a stand
mount accessory.
The rugged plywood enclosure
features JBL’s textured DuraFlex™
finish and is equipped with a heavy
duty powder coated steel, foam-backed
grille.
