SpeakerCraft has expanded its Profile line of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. The new additions — an in-wall subwoofer, a five-pack of budget in-ceiling LCR home theater speakers and a single-point stereo in-ceiling speaker — bring the clean look of the Profile line to more areas of the home.
It’s now possible to build an entire Profile sound system, for both home theaters and whole-house systems.
“Profile has been a very successful new product line for SpeakerCraft. Our installers and their clients much prefer the clean, low-profile look. And that’s why we’ve decided to expand the line,” SpeakerCraft’s Keith Marshall said. “These new speakers extend Profile so that installing dealers have a broader palette to work with.”
The Profile A6 Five-Pak gives installers all the speakers they need for a complete budget home theater system, in one convenient package. It includes five A6 in-ceiling speakers, each of which has a 6?-inch polypropylene woofer fixed at a 15 degree angle and a 1-inch pivoting silk-dome tweeter that rotates up to 30 degrees. With a high 92 dB sensitivity and 100-watt power handling, the A6 is built to handle all the powerful dynamics of the latest, hi-performance soundtracks — yet, because it uses the Profile flangeless design, it nearly disappears into the ceiling, the company says.
The Profile Cinema Sub10 in-wall sub uses a 10-inch treated paper cone rated with 250 watts power handling. The dual-voice coil woofer design makes it easy to incorporate the Profile Cinema Sub10 into anything from an advanced home theater to a basic stereo system. And, because of the flangeless look and the in- wall design, the only visible part is the grille.
The Profile AIM8 DT THREE makes it possible to get higher-quality sound in tight spaces and adjacent areas. With dual tweeters and a dual-voice coil 8-inch woofer, it reproduces both left and right stereo channels from a single speaker. The AIM8 DT THREE improves on the original AIM8 DT One by using an aluminum-cone woofer and dual aluminum-dome tweeters, for higher sensitivity, better power handling and deeper bass response. It also adds bass and treble EQ switches that let installers fine-tune the sound for the space or the client’s taste. As with the AIM8 DT One, the woofer and the tweeter module pivot independently so installers can adjust it to any desired direction. And one more thing didn’t change — the AIM8 DT THREE carries the same clean look as the rest of the Profile speakers.
“We’re excited about these new additions, because they’ll make it easier for installers to bring the great Profile look to more jobs and more clients,” Marshall said.
