Technology meets the challenge in a tough arena.
RBH Sound markets its TK-615 for budget-conscious clients placing a premium on durability. The two-way ceiling unit features a 6.5in. fiberglass matrix cone woofer mounted coaxially with a 3/4in. aluminum dome swiveling tweeter, and the two can handle power up to 100W at 8Ω with 50Hz-to-20kHz audio response. The grille and frame are paintable to match décor.
The two-way Acclaim 7C86 from Russound incorporates treble and bass switches with +3dB, 0dB, and -3dB settings along with a pivoting 1in. tweeter and 8in. Kevlar woofer. A Twist and Tilt setting of 0 degrees or 15 degrees aids in directivity customization, and the unit includes gold-plated binding post connections along with frequency response of 32Hz to 22kHz ±3dB.
This fall, Sonance unveiled its new Cinema Series loudspeakers for home theater applications. The new products have an ultrathin .20in. trim and easy attaching magnetic grilles. A star in the line is the LCR1S with two 5.25in. carbon-fiber Rohacell laminated woofers, a 4in. midrange cone, and a 1in. silk dome tweeter. Mounted in an angled face, the units provide an audio response 70Hz to 20kHz with up to 150W maximum power handling.
SoundTube Entertainment markets the CM890i for airports, convention centers, and other venues where maximum coverage with even frequency response is needed. The loudspeaker uses BroadBeamHP waveguide technology to produce an EASE-documented consistent dispersion pattern up to 10kHz. The system handles 125W continuous power and delivers a response of 77Hz to 20kHz ±3dB.
SpeakerCraft has a very interesting concept in its Time Series loudspeakers. On commands from a remote control, these can descend from their backcan and tilt at 15, 30, or 45 degrees and rotate to point to a selected spot in the room. The Time Five has an aluminum/magnesium dome tweeter, is fully programmable, and provides a frequency response of 33Hz to 20kHz ±2dB.
