Beale Street Audio is introducing its first left/center/right channel (LCR) loudspeaker. The slim, two-way in-wall “Pancake” LCR speaker measures less than 3 inches deep and is engineered for installations where the space between walls and ceilings is limited, but superior audio performance is paramount.
The LCR Pancake can be installed vertically or horizontally depending on the application such as a left, center, right around a flat panel or screen, as a stereo pair, or even as an in-wall rear channel. Either placement brings the same sound with rich, deep bass made possible by Beale Street Audio’s performance enhancing Sonic Vortex technology inside a compact cabinet. This design optimizes air movement throughout the cabinet. The LCR Pancake speaker integrates seamlessly with other Beale Street Audio’s in-ceiling/in-wall speakers or subwoofers and creates an ideal solution for those seeking a fully concealed audio system that does not sacrifice audio performance.
The LCR Pancake series is currently available in two models, one for the Beale Street Audio line, which is the IPLCR-BB, and one for the Xpress line, which is the BXPLCR401. The IPLCR4-BB features a one-inch Titanium tweeter and dual four-inch carbon fiber woofers while the BXPLCR401 provides a one-inch Aluminum tweeter and dual four-inch ribbed injected polypropylene woofers. Both models achieve a frequency response of 62Hz to 20KHz with a sensitivity of 92 decibels.
“We’re excited to introduce one of the thinnest LCR speakers on the market to Europe,” said Jim Murray, founder of Beale Street Audio. “Based on customer feedback, specifically from our international dealers and installers, we’ve created an LCR that can fit in virtually any wall, especially where space is limited, and we’ve combined that design with Sonic Vortex technology inside to add enhanced performance and sound for an amazing, flexible LCR loudspeaker.”
Across the entire line, Beale Street Audio speakers and subwoofers are highly scalable with many variable designs for both cabinet air volume and port dimensions, allowing for flexible design options. The IPLCR4-BB is available dealer direct only through Beale Street Audio and the BXPLCR401 is in the Xpress line and available via the authorized distributor channel.
The ultra-thin Pancake LCR loudspeaker will be showcased in the Beale Street Audio booth (Stand 1-M18 and 1-N18) at ISE 2016.
