OCV Series pendant loudspeakers deliver the renowned acoustic performance and exceptional value of Tannoy's CVS series in-ceiling products in an architecturally sensitive, self-contained, lightweight cylindrical enclosure. Engineered specifically for applications where consistent and high quality audio coverage is required in high or open-ceilinged spaces - such as transport terminals, shopping malls or large double or triple height commercial floors - without comprimising clarity, intelligibility or SPL.

The unique cylindrical form factor has been conceived to meet the exacting demands of the architectural sector, minimizing the impact on aesthetics and allowing the system's designer to locate the loudspeakers discretely, at a desired height without record to the physical ceiling height, and in a manner that won't conflict with other suspended systems such as lighting fixtures and ventilation. OCV was also conceived to meet an increasingly critical demand from installation professionals for a pendant style loudspeaker that delivers a competitive performance advantage without being compromised by price - a crucial factor in the current climate of 'value engineered' projects.

The Tannoy OCV 8 is, by design, a full bandwidth open-ceiling speaker system. The design comprises anm 8" mid bass driver with a coaxially mounted 1" high frequency section mounted in the cylindrical ABS enclosure with mild steel power coated grille. The mineral loaded polypropylene cone material and nitrile rubber surround enhance durability and long-term reliability.

The OCV 8 is also equipped with a low insertion loss 60W line transformer easily configurable to the following settings via top mounted rotary tapping switch:

70V systems: 60W / 30W / 15W / 7.5W / OFF & Low Impedance operation

100V systems: 60W / 30W / 15W / OFF & Low Impedance operation


  • Coaxially mounted 8" mineral loaded woofer with rubber surround and 1" soft dome direction loaded tweeter
  • High power & high sensitivity with extended frequency response and very low distortion
  • Wide, controlled constant directivity dispersion for optimum coverage - minimizing the number of devices required for a given space. Lightweight self-contained enclosure
  • Architecturally sensitive cylindrical form factor for minimal spatial impact
  • Quick and easy hanging system for minimal contractor time
  • Low insertion loss 60W line transformer
  • Easily accessible tapping switch on top of enclosure
