The AMS 8DC is a full bandwidth 360-Watt high sensitivity loudspeaker that utilises our all-new proprietary 8" Dual Concentric point-source driver with Omnimagnet technology on a Torus Ogive Waveguide to deliver wide and consistent broadband directivity with enhanced intelligibility – plus the linear response of our legendary studio monitors. The AMS 8DC is ideally suited for stereo or mono background/foreground music applications in theme parks, hotels, restaurants and bars, retail stores, as well as corporate AV, residential developments, and houses of worship. AMS 8DC loudspeakers provide a seamless sound signature within a multi-zoned environment that benefits from both ceiling and wall mounted TANNOY loudspeakers.

Weather-Resistant Enclosure

The elegantly styled semi matt black moulded enclosure blends beautifully into any décor. Additionally the AMS 8DC’s design and performance has achieving an IP65 rating, making it an exceptional choice for both indoor and outdoor environments such as indoor swimming pools, saunas, or work areas with unusually high levels of dust or moisture, and outdoor applications where weather conditions are moderate.

Attractive and Easy to Install

The highly durable and heat resistant ABS enclosure features a black painted finish and comes with an aesthetically pleasing grille. Installation is quick and easy thanks to the included colour-matched yoke mounting bracket – and an optional VARIBALL multi-angle bracket is available separately. An included weatherproof cable gland protects the Phoenix input and link output connectors, as well as the integral low-insertion loss 60 W transformer with convenient tap switching.


AMS 8DC is optimised for use with LAB GRUPPEN LUCIA amplifiers, which accommodate up to 8 AMS Series loudspeakers 
per channel.
