SpeakerCraft debuted eight new speakers at the Core Brands at CEDIA 2015. The new models included six new Profile models: two in-wall theater speakers (AIM LCR FIVE), two AccuFit UltraSlim models for shallow depth installations, and two Wide models for installations requiring ultra-wide sound dispersion.
In addition, SpeakerCraft is introduced two new five-pack configurations of its original Classic AIM7 TWO and AIM8 ONE, designed for production homes and builder partners.
“This now gives our partners a truly complete line of in-ceiling and in-wall bezel-less, flangeless speakers, enabling dealers to fully timbre-match into virtually all residential audio applications,” said Matt Dever, Core Brands product manager, audio. “And the multi-pack additions help make things easier for our production/builder accounts, as well.”
The two new AccuFit UltraSlim models feature shallow two-inch steel enclosures to address space limitations, building code requirements, and sound transfers to adjoining walls and living environment concerns. The Profile AccuFit UltraSlim THREE is timbre-matched to all THREE series speakers and features two 3-inch custom polypropylene inverted dome woofers, two 3-inch custom aluminum inverted dome midrange drivers, and a ¾-inch aluminum tweeter. The Profile AccuFit UltraSlim ONE features two three-inch custom aluminum inverted dome woofers, two three-inch custom aluminum inverted dome midrange drivers, and a ¾-inch resin coasted silk dome tweeter, timbre-matched to all ONE series speakers.
The Profile AIM WIDE Series features fully pivoting woofers and dual midrange-tweeter module. The midrange-tweeter module is mounted directly over the woofer with dual, 2-inch dome midrange drivers and dual 1-inch tweeters facing 70 degrees off-axis from each other. These two 8-inch speakers are timbre-matched to their respective series in the SpeakerCraft line. The THREE series features an aluminum woofer, midrange drivers and tweeters, while the ONE series features a graphite woofer and midrange driver with silk-dome tweeters.
The new multi-packs offer 7-inch and 8-inch options for builders and production installers, incorporating SpeakerCraft’s patented WavePlane and pivoting AIM technology.
