Bay Audio Tunes New PTM+ Home Theater Speakers Onsite

April 21, 2014

Bay Audio wants to be very clear about its new PTM+ speaker family. This is not just another home theater product, but “a complete premium solution,” including a Bay Audio factory representative showing up on the job site to provide tuning and tweaks.

Bay Audio designed the new PTM+ speaker family anticipating that its factory-trained personnel would be tuning each system, onsite. This foresight, it contends, has enabled the company’s engineers to concentrate on building loudspeakers with more headroom, lower levels of distortion, and smoother off-axis dispersion.

The Bay Audio PTM+ lineup is fully customizable to accommodate each installation. Standard sizes include a compact, high output monitor, center channel, in-wall loudspeaker, bass staging module and subwoofers in three sizes.

PTM+ loudspeakers’ advanced design elements include inert 1-inch MDF cabinet designs veneered inside and out to balance and protect the material, multiple internal braces to lock all cabinet walls in place and eliminate unwanted resonances. PTM+ loudspeakers also include an energy dispersion pad behind each premium-grade driver to absorb unwanted vibrations. PTM+ loudspeakers feature precision-tuned crossover networks utilizing 5-percent resistors, 250V polypropylene capacitors, high-quality bypass capacitors, and 12-gauge internal wiring.

The Bay Audio PTM+ home theater system is also meant to address the design/décor needs of the client. This collaboration is achieved through a specification process, teaming the onsite expertise of the dealer with the engineers at Bay Audio. Bay Audio generates two worksheets for each theater, one addressing technical specifications of the room, the other addressing design and décor. The end result is a tuned theater solution that meets or exceeds the expectations of the customer in terms of both performance and value, the company says.

To provide the ultimate home theater experience, Bay Audio dispatches a trained technician to each completed PTM+ home theater installation to correctly calibrate output levels, equalization, time alignment, and any other adjustable parameters of the system. Factory tuning the systems adds critical support to integrators while delivering the utmost value to consumers.

“The PTM+ concept gives our dealers access to the engineering expertise at Bay Audio as a resource, enabling them to create the most satisfying home theater environment for each client,” explained Bay Audio CEO Ira Friedman. “PTM+ differentiates our brand and in turn, helps our dealers differentiate themselves in a competitive market.” Bay Audio PTM+ theater systems are available now from Bay Audio authorized and certified dealers.
