The innovative triaxial design on the Community R.35-3896W delivers musical quality and detail better than many larger loudspeakers. Community's exclusive MultiSource Waveguide™ system sums dual midrange compression drivers and a 1-inch exit HF driver into a single point source with a 90° x 60° pattern of dispersion. It's designed to offer premium quality music reproduction with exceptional clarity, and is an excellent choice for sightline-friendly, medium-projection sports venue music systems as a flatter, higher output alternative to the Community R.25. It features an attractive, paintable ABS enclosure with included 200W autoformer and Voice/Music switch.
