  • The FreeSpace DS 16F flush-mount loudspeaker is engineered for installation in ceilings up to 20ft (6.1m) high. An optional pendant-mount kit allows the loudspeaker to be hung from open ceilings. The FreeSpace DS 16F loudspeaker can be used as an 8-ohm, 16-watt loudspeaker or as a 70/100V loudspeaker. Transformer taps can be set by using an innovative thumb wheel, accessible from the front of the loudspeaker underneath the grille. Performance of the FreeSpace DS 16F loudspeaker can be maximized through the use of the recommended Bose loudspeaker equalization resident in select Bose electronics or by using other equipment with parametric equalization. The loudspeaker can be used out of the box with an 80-Hz high-pass filter when recommended loudspeaker equalization is not used. The DS 16F loudspeaker is acoustically compatible with the DS 16S (indoor) and DS 16SE (outdoor) surface-mount loudspeakers and can be integrated on the same loudspeaker line. The FreeSpace DS 16F loudspeaker meets numerous standards for combination music and evacuation systems around the world. A ceramic connector and thermal fuse are included and can be used when required.
