Model LB8B/LB8W - Bracket Mount Outdoor Loudspeakers

The NEAR® LB8 all-environment loudspeaker is elegantly designed, rugged to the extreme, and a snap to install. The LB8 employs a NEAR exclusive “lever bracket” mount combined with a pre-terminated totally waterproof input connector. This mounting system minimizes installation effort and reduces “ladder time” to improve installation safety. The LB8 utilizes an 8-inch MDT/MLS woofer with a coincident-mounted 1-inch titanium inverted dome tweeter for perfectly life-like sound dispersed evenly over a wide area.
