The JBL LCT 81C/T has been designed to easily lay into a 2”x2” US-style suspended grid ceiling without the need for cutting ceiling tiles. It delivers high output and exceptional intelligibility for paging systems, airports, retail stores, classrooms, offices, courtrooms, meeting rooms and more.
The JBL LCT 81C/T features higher sensitivity and better voice intelligibility than other speakers in its class, using an eight inch dual-cone driver with one inch voice coil to provide high quality sound in an easy-to-install design.
A built-in 10W transformer allows the LCT 81C/T to be used on 70V or 100V distributed speaker lines or driven directly by a low-impedance power amplifier (at up to 20W continuous average pink noise; 40W program power).
The LCT 81C/T features 96dB sensitivity to deliver maximum sound levels and reduce costs by allowing installers to use smaller power amplifiers. A 100° conical coverage pattern provides superior speech intelligibility to a wide area, providing adequate coverage with fewer speakers and saving time and money during installation.
The LCT 81C/T expands upon a long line of JBL in-ceiling loudspeakers by seamlessly fitting into industry standard drop-ceiling grids. This form factor makes it easier and more cost-effective for installers working with suspended ceiling.
“Audio installers have been asking us to make a compact full-range ceiling speaker that easily lays into a ceiling tile grid system, while providing enough output and clarity to cover a large area. The LCT 81C/T makes installation efficient and neat by laying directly into a US-size 2”x2” suspended tile grid system without requiring cuts or modifications to the ceiling,” says Harman Professional Solutions senior manager commercial loudspeakers Rick Kamlet.
