Indianapolis, IN--In the largest product introduction in its 58-year history, Klipsch Audio Technologies has launched 31 new architectural loudspeakers and four installation kits at CEDIA EXPO. Klipsch also announced that it will be the exlusive distributor of the ZON whole-house digital audio distribution system.

The extensive new lineup includes six different categories of in-wall and in-ceiling products and six outdoor models. The in-wall speakers feature a patent-pending KWIC-Lock frame design. The in-ceiling models feature a proprietary two-screw solution as well.

According to Paul Jacobs, president of Klipsch Audio Technologies, no single speaker brand stands out as a leader in the minds of the custom install consumer. "No other company is in a better position than Klipsch to change that and emerge as the brand asked for by name," Jacobs says. "By launching more than 30 new high-performance custom installation models we are clearly grabbing onto this opportunity."

Classified by content, the six new in-wall and in-ceiling categories are:

*CDT 7000 Series (four models)--features a round 90-degree swiveling Tractrix Horn on in-wall models and complete woofer and tweeter Focus Capability on in-ceiling models, black fiberglass/nomex woofer cones with copper dust caps, one-inch titanium tweeters used throughout, and a no-hassle grille.
