The Tannoy CVS range has been designed to deliver the best possible performance per price balance. Packaged with C-ring and tile bridge and fully supported with industry standard certifications, including UL-1480, UL-2043 and CE. The compact CVS 8 is a 200mm (8.00") full bandwidth blind mount model, with integral steel back can, specifically designed for all applications requiring the combination of excellent sonic quality for music and speech reinforcement and exceptional reliability.

The mineral loaded polypropylene cone material and nitrile rubber surround provide durability and long-term reliability, minimising system maintenance costs and future disruption to any facility. This compact unit is specifically designed for applications requiring the combination of music and speech reinforcement at higher SPLs with consistent functionality and full bandwidth sound quality. Typical applications include shopping malls, large conference facilities, hotel lobbies and ballrooms, and larger bars and high-end restaurants where higher BGM specifications are often specified and demanded.

The CVS 8 is equipped with a low insertion loss 60W line transformer easily configurable to the following settings via front baffle mounted rotary tapping switch:
70V systems: 60W / 30W / 15W / 7.5W / OFF & low Impedance operation
100V systems: 60W / 30W / 15W / OFF & low Impedance operation
