WATER STOP GRILL
The prime consideration in designing SHADOW cabinets was extreme weather resistance, also for the drivers that would be employed inside them. The exceptionally weather resistant driver is further protected by the water-stop grille: it stops the elements, solid or liquid, from getting inside the enclosure. Each protective grille is a 3 layers structure that consists of an external perforated stainless steel panel treated with a special protection, a center layer of reticulated foam and an inner layer of water-repellent polyester mesh, providing maximum protection and minimal acoustic attenuation.
All internal circuitry is protected with a special sealing and treated with weather proofing compound against the effects of moisture, corrosion and oxidation.
Weather resistant steel mounting brackets are included with all models.
The cabinet of these loudspeakers is a single piece rotomolded enclosure, made in polyethylene, fully UV protected equipped with a stainless steel U-Bracket for fixed installation.
The curved shape helps to reduce acoustic reflections and standing waves within the enclosure, for improved LF performance, and in outside the rounded shape inhibits standing water and helps to diffract wind, reducing load on the structure.
