The One Systems 108IM is a universal direct weather loudspeaker system designed for use in both marine environments and general purpose inland environments. The 8-inch two-way design provides excellent acoustic radiation from a compact enclosure. The 108IM utilizes 316-grade stainless steel (marine-grade) for all structural and rigging points. All associated One Systems rigging accessories are also 316-grade stainless steel. All metal components that are not structural feature a newly developed marine-grade powder coat over 304-grade stainless steel. This allows the 108IM to be used in ocean front and cruise ship applications as well as in general direct weather installations. IMPORTANT NOTE: For ocean front and marine environments, the included “vent plugs” must be installed in the loudspeaker vents!

The 108IM (USA) also features an installer configurable High Z or Lo Z mode. The High Z mode features a wide bandwidth 150-watt autoformer that presents input taps of 150 watts, 75 watts, and 37.5 watts. The Lo Z mode is 8 ohms. The simple configuration process is found on the third page of the product data sheet. The configuration scheme does not utilize any switches that limit system reliability. The Hi Z mode allows for either 70.7Vrms or 100Vrms operation. The 108IM offers a medium format titanium compression driver and high order filtering to provide superb intelligibility, extended bandwidth, as well as superior system dynamics.

The 108IM is optimized for outdoor short-throw to medium-throw applications such as theme parks, parade routes, baseball/football stadiums, and other entertainment/sports venues where permanent installation is required. The 108IM is a very versatile design providing high performance in a small physical package.

The 108IM is a two-way design that features rotatable and interchangeable high frequency horns. The 108IM has a rotatable 60 x 40 degree horn installed and is also shipped with a wide coverage pattern 105 x 60 horn that is also fully rotatable. The medium Q, 60 x 40 pattern, is ideal for medium-throw applications and where venue or space acoustics require a tighter high frequency pattern. The 105 x 60 high frequency wave guide provides broad dispersion. The 8-inch nominal diameter low frequency component features a very large voice coil diameter. insures high reliability and excellent linearity.

The One Systems 108IM features 7 each M8 rigging points on the enclosure. These rigging points may be used with the One Systems PM3/M pole mount system or the PT38/M rigging brackets. The PT38/M is used for flat surface mounting. An optional U-bracket, the 108IM-U/M is also available as an accessory. The enclosure is an injection molded design that utilizes a high impact copolymer material that exhibits superior weather resistance. The 108IM is available in either black or white color. Both color options are stabilized for ultra violet exposure. The enclosure also features a three layer “rain shield” grille design and an input weather cover with water proof gland nut. The system ingress protection is IP 45 in normal configuration and IP 56 when the vent plugs are installed.
