By RS Staff Published: February 22, 2017 ⋅ Updated: April 15, 2019 James Loudspeaker has redesigned the mounting system for its QXC series of architectural speakers, making it easier for integrators to secure them in place, reducing the time and effort required for installation. The new QXC loudspeakers utilize a lightweight aluminum frame with semi-circular clamps that attach to the ceiling or wall surface using premium-grade stainless steel hardware. Once the frame has been secured with speaker mounting screws in place, the QXC speaker can be rotated into position using the provided keyhole shaped receptacles in the speaker’s mounting flange. This methodology eliminates the need for the installer, often perched precariously on a ladder, from having to balance the speaker while simultaneously holding tools and hardware.

The elastomer eliminates any concern of corrosion even in marine environments, and these magnets are affixed to both the speaker and the grille for a secure fit. QXC aluminum grilles are available in both round and square form factors in standard and custom colors. James Loudspeaker QXC Series speakers (available in 6.5- and 8-inch models) feature aluminum cone woofers with Santoprene rubber surrounds and quad aluminum tweeter arrays that provide greater dispersion and imaging even in rooms with speakers mounted in less than perfect locations. All QXC mounting innovations are available now.
