An outdoor speaker for home or commercial applications
Get classic Klispch sound for your deck or porch at home, or for your restaurant’s outdoor seating area or patio bar. The Klipsch CA-800-T features multi-tap transformers for use with 70-volt or 100-volt distributed audio systems. Or you can set it to “bypass” mode and simply use these rugged, weather-resistant speakers with your standard home audio receiver or amplifier. Either way, you’ll enjoy detailed sound and years of reliable operation.
Klipsch speaker technology inside
The Klipsch CA-800-T sports Klipsch’s Tractrix horn speaker technology for clear highs that project. The 1″ titanium dome tweeter is loaded in a square-mouthed horn that allows you to place the speakers either vertically or horizontally using the integrated mounting brackets. A beefy 8″ IMG (injection-molded graphite) woofer with a rubber surround provides the mids and bass, for full-range sound in outdoor spaces.
For efficiency and reliability, the Klipsch CA-800T has been re-voiced and employs a high-power, extended range low frequency driver. It features an 8-inch IMG cone woofer and 1-inch titanium dome tweeter coupled to a square-mouth 90-degree by 90-degree Tractrix Horn, which allows the speaker to be mounted horizontally or vertically without affecting the coverage pattern.
Available in black or white, this speaker has a durable UV-resistant all-weather enclosure that includes an internal multi-tap transformer with expanded range and a switchable direct 8-ohm bypass. The tap settings for the CA-800T at 70V are 60W, 30W, 15W, 7.5W and 3.7W. The added 3.7W tap setting offers further placement flexibility. The settings for 100V are 60W, 30W, 15W and 7.5W.
The included heavy gauge zinc C-bracket provides added mounting strength. It attaches to the enclosure’s integral “center-of-gravity balanced” threaded studs that are positioned inside the speaker and to the oversized knobs, ensuring positive position-lock. Connections are provided via four-position barrier strips. This allows an installer to use two connectors for inputs and two for passthroughs, making it easier to daisy chain.
The Klipsch CA-800T’s updated grille design stays securely fastened and incorporates a new paint formulation for increased weather resistance and years of maintenance-free protection regardless of the climate or environment. The speaker’s improved input cup allows for easier drainage and the added 3/8”-16 threaded insert for use with optional mounts offers better placement flexibility.
