The integrated 70V 'matching transformer' allows multiple C170's to be connected together without danger of overloading the power amplifier due to impedance drop. The user has a choice of three sensitivity settings (4, 8, 16, 32 or 100 Watts) selected via a rotary switch located on the rear panel of the speaker, allowing convenient adjustment of the relative volumes of multiple interconnected cabinets.
The C170 is based on the already popular C110, C120 and C130, which have a complete list of features that make them an extremely good value for fixed installations. The C170, is a compact 100-watt loudspeaker enclosure made from ABS plastic with an 8-inch driver and 1 inch Mylar tweeter, and features both dual binding posts and 1/4" connectors for maximum versatility.
The trapezoidal shape makes the C170 ideal for install or array mounting in tight locations. Shipped with a rugged proprietary U-bracket for wall or ceiling mounting, they are a very versatile and cost-effective solution where superior sonic quality is required for small installations, or as a repeater or fill cabinet in larger venues. An optional polemount adapter (C170ADAPT) is also available for applications where placing the C170 on a speaker stand is required. The C170 is also available in white as the C170W, for situations where a more discreet speaker is required.
The C170 is available in both black (C170) and white (C170W) finishes.
