Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leading supplier of high-output loudspeakers and DSP loudspeaker controllers, announces the SR-2408iw compact high-output loudspeaker for in-wall and in-ceiling installations where space is limited but performance is crucial.
Featuring a 1.5-inch ring radiator tweeter, two high-efficiency 4-inch midrange drivers, and an 8-inch long-throw woofer, the SR-2408iw is a very high-output yet versatile in-wall loudspeaker suitable for retro-fit or new construction. At only 4-inches deep, and with all-aluminum construction, the SR-2408iw is ideal for installations in yachts or elite home theaters (including DCI) as mains, sides, rears, surrounds, or as height channels for Dolby Atmos and other immersive audio installations.
The SR-2408iw can be configured with 0-degree straight-firing axisymmetric, or 40-degree asymmetric waveguides which aim the sound at a 40-degree angle to the loudspeaker main axis. This allows the sound to be “aimed” at the reference listening position while the speaker is mounted flush in a 2×4 architectural wall. The angled waveguide is ideal for residential rooms or yachts where space is limited and aiming speakers is particularly challenging. In more spacious installations, it can also be adapted using PRO’s pivot bracket allowing the installer to mount it to a surface and aim it at a specific listening position.
Despite its 4-inch depth, the SR-2408iw is capable of reproducing 45Hz – 22kHz, allowing the SR-2408iw to serve as full-range speakers in surround and distributed audio applications. An optional, paintable perforated metal grille is available.
“The SR-2408iw in-wall loudspeaker was developed to meet the speaker aiming requirement in Dolby-certified DCI theater that is to be installed on a world-renowned VIP’s mega-yacht,” said Paul Hales, Pro Audio Technology President, and Product Designer. “The all-aluminum construction makes it suitable for the harsh yacht environment and allows us to achieve surprising fidelity and output from a speaker only 3.5-inch deep.”
The SR-2408iw will be available in Q4 2022 and on display at CEDIA Expo 2022 in the Pro Audio Technology booth (#24035). For more information on Pro Audio Technology, please visit proaudiotechnology.com.
