The Tannoy AMS 5DC is a wide bandwidth, high power-handling and high sensitivity surface mount loudspeaker designed with an aesthetic that is perfect for the architectural considerations of building design.
AMS 5 DC Weather Proof 5" Dual Concentric Architectural Loudspeaker
The elegantly styled moulded enclosure blends beautifully into any décor, with custom colour available on special order. Additionally the AMS 5DC has undergone the most punishing environmental testing of any product in Tannoy’s history – achieving an IP65 rating, which is among the highest in the industry for outdoor use.
Behind the unobtrusive, smoothly formed, weather-resistant zinc-plated nickel grilles and higher temperature polymer mouldings lies the technical heart of Tannoy’s Dual Concentric Driver’s revolutionary Omnimagnet™ technology and a unique patent-pending Torus Ogive Waveguide™ device. Together these innovations provide more consistent and controlled directivity along with improved high frequency response, as well as much improved time alignment and greater coherence between the low frequency and high frequency drivers.
This latest generation of Dual Concentrics have their genesis in many of the world’s high end recording studios, with that classic signature Tannoy technology being used to mix and master a rich history of recording industry classics, including The Beatles’ most treasured recordings in London’s Abbey Road. By extension, the new AMS models ensure that playback of recorded material sounds exactly as the engineer intended when it was mixed in the studio, making them perfect for entertainment and hospitality venues, as well as areas where true sonic clarity and reliability is required.
The AMS range utilises a 16 ohm driver, making it ideal for use in high performance low-impedance systems (with optimized performance when used in conjunction with Lab.gruppen LUCIA amplifiers). Alternatively, for constant voltage systems, Tannoy has specified as standard, high quality low insertion loss 30 W transformers featuring switching for taps at 30 W, 15 W and 7.5 W, with an additional 3.75 W tap for traditional systems.
