June 11, 2013 - Community announces “WET X” – thirteen new models of its acclaimed WET Series featuring innovative next generation techniques that redefine outdoor loudspeaker construction and improve sonic performance. WET X’s exclusive hand-laid fiberglass enclosures are internally lined with marine-grade plywood and use innovative drivers to provide premium sound quality for both outdoor and indoor venues. The versatile 12-inch and 15-inch, two-way, full-range WET X loudspeakers offer six rotatable horn patterns, high output, and unmatched LF extension. WET X loudspeakers contain a large diaphragm 1.4-inch exit high frequency compression driver and can produce the same output levels as the largest WET II loudspeakers but in enclosures only half the size. The low frequency cone and internal circuitry have Community’s proprietary Envirotech™ coating for improved weather-resistance. The WX218SDF, a downfire dual 18-inch model, adds an ultra-high-performance subwoofer to the line.
WET X enclosures feature a modified trapezoidal silhouette that improves upon the uniquely curved shape of Community’s WET II enclosures, bringing a more traditional look and feel to the loudspeakers while still providing the same outdoor direct exposure resistance and streamlined shape to reduce wind load.
Internally, the flat surfaces are fully lined with 18mm (7-layer) marine grade plywood to provide the sonic benefits of wood inside of Community’s fiberglass enclosures. All of the wood is resin-sealed to reinforce the enclosure’s weather resistance. The outer shell is handcrafted of multi-layer fiberglass with a smooth glossy finish and is available in black or white, with custom paint colors optional. All models include a dual-layer powder-coated stainless steel mounting bracket.
WET X’s combination of multiple horn options, high output and extreme weather-resistance brings exceptional sound and speech quality to any outdoor or multi-purpose application. With the introduction of WET X, Community continues to provide stylish loudspeakers with theatrical quality sound in weather-resistant enclosures that will deliver high performance in all conditions for many years.
