Community Professional Loudspeakers has announced a new Emergency Notification Tunnel Loudspeaker at the Integrate Show in Melbourne, Australia. Designed to provide consistent intelligible emergency notification, the TT-1020 delivers precise pattern control and in enclosed linear spaces and other highly reverberant environments.

Given the current political climate products like the TT-1020 Emergency Notification Tunnel Loudspeaker have never been more important. Today Japan had to activate its emergency speakers after North Korea fired a missile over its territory, with other countries likely looking to upgrade their emergency systems.

The TT-1020 utilises optimised horn geometry and a special version of Community’s proprietary M200 high-power voice-band driver, engineered to provide accurate signal reproduction with very low distortion. This results in high intelligibility at the elevated sound pressure levels necessary to overcome the high ambient noise and challenging acoustic conditions of road tunnels.

The driver’s inert materials, combined with the horn’s fire-resistant fiberglass construction and 316 stainless steel external hardware, make the entire device resistant to potentially caustic environments.  The TT-1020 has an IEC 60529 IP66 rating and IEC 60695-11-10:2013 V-0 classification. Customers can order the 100V system configured for 50W or 100W operation.

While the TT-1020 is ideal for the current political climate, it’s also ideally suited in case of road traffic accidents or fires that occur in tunnels. In those situations, systems such as the TT-1020 have the potential to save lives.

The TT-1020 will be exhibited at the Integrate Show on the stand of Hills Limited, Community’s partner in Australia and New Zealand.
