Stealth Acoustics has added to its StingRay range of outdoor high-fidelity speakers, with the launch of a new 8″ three-way model. Capable of withstanding the harshest environmental conditions, the new StingRay 83 is based on the design of Stealth’s LRX-83 invisible speaker and is aimed at residential, commercial and marine applications.
Producing a deep bass response down to 40 Hz, with a smooth midrange and solid upper frequency, the StingRay 83 is balanced and what Stealth says is the highest quality outdoor speaker its ever created. It features a 30-millimeter midrange device, a 25-millimeter tweeter and an 8″ high-power cone woofer in combination with Stealth’s Fidelity Glass Advanced flat front radiating surface to give ultra-wide dispersion within a hermetically-sealed enclosure. It’s designed with outdoor theater audio in mind and has peak power handling of over 300 watts.
The StingRay 83 is constructed using high-strength, UV-protected fiberglass and marine grade, fiber-infused ASA plastics, meaning it’s completely sealed against intrusion from any outside elements. It has an Ingress Protection rating of IP-68 per international CEI/IEC 60529 standards. Stealth Acoustics say no moisture, salt or sun will affect the unit, nor will it ever rust or discolor over time, making it ideal for exceptional audio performance in harsh, superyacht or outdoor environments.
The StingRay 83 is available in standard white or black to blend in discreetly with outdoor locations. Optionally, a custom graphic wrap finish can be applied to help it further blend into its environment or to make it a stand-out feature. A popular option is to send Stealth a photograph of the mounting location or other artwork for factory design, print and application of the wrap. Specific mounting solutions and accessory products to facilitate StingRay 83 installation into the boat construction or remodel process are provided.
The StingRay speaker family already includes both 6″ and 8″ two-way woofer models and the StingRay 430 subwoofer speaker system and all the detailed specs are here.
