Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has announced two new series of loudspeakers consisting of three new models — S-12sm, SR-12ai, and SR-212ai. The S Series was designed to reproduce the unrestricted dynamics and power of the commercial cinema experience but in a more compact form factor ideal for home theater environments, according to the company. The new loudspeakers replace existing PRO models: S-12sm replaces SCRS-12sm, S-12ai replaces SCRS-12ai, and S-212ai replaces SCRS-212ai.
The S and SR Series models employ a new 1.7-inch Ultra-Purity high-frequency compression driver mounted on an elliptical wide coverage horn. Designed for placement behind an acoustically transparent screen, the S-12sm and SR-12ai both feature a 12-inch 1400-watt, long-throw woofer with 4-inch voice coil. However, the SR-12ai is encased in a slim 7-inch enclosure that is ideal for installations where space is limited. Likewise, the SR-212ai offers a shallow enclosure, but packs dual 12-inch long-throw woofers for added punch in larger systems.
Combined with PRO’s DSP Loudspeaker Controllers, the new S and SR Series loudspeaker models employ proprietary digital signal processing for high-resolution frequency response contouring, dynamics processing, and critical time alignment. With each new S and SR Series model PRO is providing system designers extensive engineering data, including EASE complex polar data, and complete 360-degree on- and off-axis response measurements. Having access to this expanded data allows integrators to accurately model the acoustic performance of a system during the system design process.
PRO’s new S and SR Series loudspeakers will begin shipping late July, and will be on display at CEDIA Expo in booth #SR-6, September 10 – 14, 2019. Interested dealers can contact their Pro Audio Technology rep or distributor directly for pricing.
