Beale Street Audio has unveiled its latest wave of in-ceiling loudspeakers, 70/100V versions designed to offer unparalleled performance for paging, conferencing and background music applications in retail, hospitality, schools, offices, and other commercial environments.
Easy to install, affordably priced, and fueled by Beale Street Audio’s groundbreaking Sonic Vortex Technology, the new in-ceiling speaker models produce richly detailed audio playback, powerful bass, and wide dispersion to ensure consistent coverage across a range of spaces. This type of performance is virtually unheard of in a 70/100v speaker. The new commercial-grade in-ceiling models are available with a 4-inch or 6.5-inch woofer and feature an integrated retrofit enclosure and flexible industrial design options.
Beale Street Audio’s patented Sonic Vortex Technology reimagines the traditional ported enclosed speaker design to deliver significantly more bass and a flatter frequency response. This audible improvement is achieved by separating the main port of the enclosure into multiple sections called “fins” that are tuned to ideal listening specifications. The fins compress and move air at a high rate of speed without port noise and also add to the cabinet’s rigidity. Compared to sealed models, the Sonic Vortex design provides a 6 to 9 db boost in the mid-lower bass ranges and a flatter frequency response across the audio spectrum.
“Today’s custom integrator is nimble, moving easily from residential to commercial projects, so bringing an affordable commercial audio solution to market was a must for us,” said Jim Murray, Founder of Beale Street Audio. “By combining the enhanced dynamics of our patented Sonic Vortex Technology with a cost-effective design we are able to provide commercial integrators and their customers with astounding sound at a value.”
Like the rest of the Beale Street Audio product family, the new in-ceiling models are extremely versatile. With the ability to operate with 100V or 70V distributed speaker systems or in 8 ohm direct mode, Beale’s commercial-grade in-ceiling options are highly efficient, producing full-range, low distortion, truly musical sound.
