"We are pleased to offer the FF 220T speaker in response to customer requests for a version of the FF 120T that will simply drop into existing 2' x 2' tile ceilings," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "With our exclusive patent pending Flat Field technology, fewer speakers are needed, so a pair of FF 220Ts will provide the coverage needed for most classrooms, conference rooms, and meeting rooms."
Extron's patent pending Flat Field technology makes this speaker truly unique. Flat Field technology redirects radiated sound waves from the 3" driver to better equalize sound pressure levels across the listening area. As a result of this wide dispersion area, only two FF 220T speakers are required in a standard classroom, as opposed to four or more traditional ceiling speakers. This translates to simpler installation and lower cost, both in speaker components and installation labor. The 3" (7.6 cm) horn-loaded, full-range driver provides wide frequency response, including bass extension down to 68 Hz. Another unique benefit of the FF 220T design is that it has the same appearance as an air handling vent in a suspended or drop-in ceiling. This makes it less prone to theft or tampering.
The FF 220T offers 8 ohm or 70 / 100 volt operation, and provides power taps for 16, 8 ,4, 2, and 1 watt. For easy installation and theft deterrence, the FF 220T features a neutral white, perforated steel grille and included T-bar, which matches the appearance of standard air conditioning vents and grid ceilings.
