Legacy Series - C860

100w, 8-inch / 1-inch Speaker

The 100-Watt C860 is a two-way enclosure containing a single 8" speaker and a 1" Mylar high frequency driver firing through a conical tractrix horn. These combine to provide unsurpassed sonic clarity and an optimum 90° x 30° dispersion pattern. Time-tested passive crossover networks (12 dB per octave) ensure sonic accuracy and CTL™ protection circuitry guards against damage to the high frequency drivers.



In the lower frequency range the 8" woofer combines solid performance with outstanding reliability. The enclosures feature inset input-jack plates, which contain binding post and 1/4" phone connectors. The enclosures are painted with a white two-part epoxy and incorporate curved, anti-resonance speaker grilles constructed of perforated 16-gauge steel. Both enclosures and grilles can be easily refinished and feature a grille clip attachment system for easy removal and recovering. Painstaking attention to details is evidenced by features such as the safety screw hidden under the embossed Yorkville logo, which ensures that the grille does not inadvertently come loose.

The Coliseum series enclosures are constructed of highly rigid 15mm (.5906") Baltic birch plywood. Their trapezoidal shape is conducive to array mounting and minimizes lobing difficulties. The C860 is equipped with two flypoints and a pullback. The flypoints are steel reinforced and engineered to allow easy, flexible and safe enclosure suspension.
