4" 2-way weatherproof loudspeaker - 8 Ohms
The NEAR® LB4 all-environment loudspeaker is elegantly designed, rugged to the extreme and a snap to install. The LB4 employs a ball and socket "signature" mounting system combined with a pre-terminated totally waterproof input connector. This mounting system minimizes installation effort and reduces “ladder time” to improve installation efficiency and safety. The LB4 utilizes a 4-inch MDT/MLS woofer with a 1-inch titanium inverted dome tweeter for perfectly life-like sound dispersed evenly over a wide area.
Like other NEAR speakers, the LB4 is truly weather-proof, not just “weather-resistant” and can be used totally exposed to the elements. The LB4 enclosure is color-through, mica-loaded polypropylene that sheds moisture, dirt and chemicals. The UV inhibitor pigments are embedded uniformly throughout the material so the sun won’t fade or yellow the color and garden tools won’t easily mar their looks.
The LB4 is available in white and black and can be painted to match the surroundings. The color-matched grilles are oxidation-resistant heavy gauge powder coated aluminum with rectangular perforations that inhibit water from clogging the holes and blocking high frequencies. The bass port is protected from moisture, debris and critter ingress with a special hydrophobic fabric.
