BCS250 Passive Ceiling Speaker


The BCS250 is a premium passive commercial-grade ceiling speaker, specifically designed for both low impedance and constant voltage scenarios.

The BCS250 is designed to work in conjunction with the B170S Networked Streaming Stereo Amplifier, offering both low impedance and constant voltage settings (70/100V).
