Building on the success of its initial high-output in-wall loudspeakers, Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has expanded its offering of designer-friendly products to include new in-wall, in-ceiling, and subwoofer models.
The SCRS-5iw, LFC-12im, SCRS-25iw, and LFC-14sm
Featuring professional components and DSP optimization, the new models bring PRO’s speakers to a lower price point than previously available, according to the company.
The SCRS-5iw in-wall loudspeaker joins a three-quarters-inch compression driver to a PRO-designed elliptical horn for broad dispersion of high-frequency energy. Its five-inch woofer employs a ferrite magnet with an oversized voice-coil, resulting in a high-sensitivity design capable of output levels of 110dB and a dynamic range typically associated with larger floor standing loudspeakers. Measuring only three and seven-eighths inches deep, the SCRS-5iw installs in a standard 2×4 stud bay.
The SCRS-25iw ceiling loudspeaker integrates the drivers of the SCRS-5iw in a dual woofer configuration providing greater sensitivity and higher maximum output level of approximately 115dB. Functionality is enhanced by an angled baffle design. It includes a back-box that fits between 12-inch on-center joists.
To complement their full-range speakers, PRO also is introducing two new subwoofers. The LFC-12im features a 12-inch woofer in a shallow enclosure engineered for retrofit installation opportunities in a traditional 2×4 stud bay. A neodymium motor and five-inch voice-coil deliver deep, tuneful bass at output levels belying the LFC-12im’s unobtrusive size (115dB max output).
For more demanding applications, PRO’s new LFC-14sm high-impact floor-standing subwoofer employs a proprietary long-throw 15-inch driver housed in a compact enclosure. A black textured paint finish is standard. Wood veneer is available at an up-charge.
Like other PRO products, the new loudspeaker models are designed for bi-amp operation using the company’s DSP-driven digital amplifier technology to maximize performance. Passive (single amp) operation will also be available.
