DESCRIPTION
I SERIES Point Source 800 loudspeakers provide
exemplary acoustic performance, modular flexibility
and elegant aesthetics for modern performance
venues. Designed to support the goals of systems
integrators and consultants both acoustically
and mechanically, I SERIES includes a wide variety
of arrayable, rotatable coverage patterns and
a comprehensive selection of modular bracket
systems that accelerate system design and system
commissioning.
FEA-optimized linear suspensions, high-flux
neodymium motors, and integral demodulation
rings ensure precise transducer motion control
and very low distortion at high SPL levels. The
custom long-excursion LF driver delivers deep
bass response and a balanced midrange in the
most demanding applications. The HF compression
driver's non-metallic diaphragm provides natural,
transparent sound quality that accurately
reproduces and complements any source.
The rotatable 13-inch (330mm) HF waveguide
provides well-defined coverage and a smooth
off-axis response that enhances arrayability.
Individually voiced crossovers produce proper
beamwidth matching transitions and identical sonic
signatures throughout the product line, permitting
horn patterns to be mixed throughout an installation.
Additionally, user selectable single-amp or biamp
operating modes expand application flexibility.

*Rated continuous maximum input voltage at passive loudspeaker input may be higher than for directly connected transducers due to losses in the passive
crossover. Voltages applied to the transducer terminals through the passive crossover shall always be the same or lower than the rated continuous voltage
for each device.

NOTES
1. PERFORMANCE SPECIFICATIONS All measurements
are taken indoor using a time-windowed and processed
signal to eliminate room effects, approximating an
anechoic environment, a distance of 6.0 m. All acoustic
specifications are rounded to the nearest whole number.
An external DSP with settings provided by Community
Professional Loudspeakers is required to achieve the
specified performance; further performance gains can
be realized using Community’s dSPEC226 loudspeaker
processor with FIR power response optimization.
2. OPERATING RANGE The frequency range in which the
on-axis processed response remains within 10dB of the
average SPL.
3. CONTINUOUS POWER HANDLING Maximum continuous
input voltage (and the equivalent power rating, in watts,
at the stated nominal impedance) that the system can
withstand, without damage, for a period of 2 hours using
an EIA-426-B defined spectrum; with recommended signal
processing and protection filters.
4. NOMINAL SENSITIVITY Averaged SPL over the operating
range with an input voltage that would produce 1 Watt
at the nominal impedance and the averaged SPL over
the operating range with a fixed input voltage of 2.83V,
respectively; swept sine wave axial measurements with
no external processing applied in whole space, except
where indicated.

5. NOMINAL MAXIMUM SPL Calculated based on nominal
/ peak power handling, respectively, and nominal
sensitivity; exclusive of power compression.
6. EQUALIZED SENSITIVITY The respective SPL levels
produced when an EIA-426-B signal is applied to the
equalized loudspeaker system at a level which produces
a total power of 1 Watt , in sum, to the loudspeaker
subsections and also at a level which produces a total
voltage, in sum, of 2.83V to the loudspeaker subsections,
respectively; each referenced to a distance of 1 meter.
7. EQUALIZED MAXIMUM SPL The SPL produced when an
EIA-426-B signal is applied to the equalized loudspeaker
system, at a level which drives at least one subsection to
its rated continuous input voltage limit, referenced to a
distance of 1 meter. The peak SPL represents the 2:1 (6dB)
crest factor of the EIA-426-B test signal.
8. AXIAL PROCESSED RESPONSE The on-axis variation
in acoustic output level with frequency of the complete
loudspeaker system with recommended signal processing
applied. 1/6 octave Gaussian smoothing applied.
9. AXIAL SENSITIVITY The on-axis variation in acoustic
output level with frequency for a 1 Watt swept sine
wave, referenced to 1 meter with no signal processing.
1/6 octave Gaussian smoothing applied.
10. HORIZONTAL / VERTICAL OFF-AXIS RESPONSES The
loudspeaker’s magnitude response at various angles
off-axis, with recommended signal processing applied in
the operating mode which utilizes the largest number of
individually amplified pass bands. 1/6 octave Gaussian
smoothing applied.
11. DIRECTIVITY INDEX The ratio of the on-axis SPL
squared to the mean squared SPL at the same distance
for all points within the measurement sphere for each
given frequency; expressed in dB. 1/6 octave Gaussian
smoothing applied.
12. BEAMWIDTH The angle between the -6dB points in
the polar response of the loudspeaker when driven in
the operating mode which utilizes the largest number of
individually amplified pass bands. 1/6 octave Gaussian
smoothing applied.
Data presented on this spec sheet represents a selection of
the basic performance specifications for the model. These
specifications are intended to allow the user to perform a
fair, straightforward evaluation and comparison with other
loudspeaker spec sheets. For a detailed analysis of this
loudspeaker’s performance, please download the GLL file
and/or the CLF file from our website: communitypro.com
CAUTION: Installation of loudspeakers should only be
performed by trained and qualified personnel. It is strongly
recommended that a licensed and certified professional
structural engineer approve the mounting design.
