Pro Audio Technology brings invisible mounts to CEDIA 2019
Lake Forest, CA – Pro Audio Technology (PRO), the leading supplier of high-output loudspeakers and DSP loudspeaker controllers, announces three new model additions to its SR series of loudspeakers – SR-25im, SR-6im, and SR-26im – as well as an innovative new pivot bracket that provides installation flexibility.
SR Series invisible mount loudspeakers are built with the same genuine professional-grade speaker components as PRO’s high-end loudspeakers, but in discreet form factors ideal for home theater and multi-room audio environments where superior sound is desired without sacrificing design. The new loudspeakers replace existing PRO models: SR-25im replaces SCRS-25im, SR-6im replaces SCRS-6im, and SR-26im replaces SCRS-26im.
PRO’s new innovative pivot brackets are designed to make installing SR Series loudspeakers easy. Ideal for Dolby Atmos installations where having the ability to aim the loudspeakers at the listener is essential, PRO’s pivot brackets can be mounted multiple ways and provide up to 50 degrees of rotation.
SR-25im employs a ¾-inch high frequency compression driver mounted on a proprietary waveguide, and dual high-power 5-inch long-throw woofers. The SR-25im has a low-frequency sensitivity of 96dB/W, high-frequency sensitivity of 109 dB/W and a frequency range of 80Hz – 18kHz. Designed for front and surround or distributed audio applications, the SCRS-25im makes PRO systems more attainable for those looking for uncompromised sound.
Big brother to the SR-25im, yet able to fit into a 2×4 stud bay, the SR-26im employs a new Ultra-Purity™ 1-inch high frequency compression driver mounted on a second generation PRO ellipsi-symmetrical waveguide, and dual high-power 6.5-inch long-throw woofers for systems that require deeper bass, and higher output capabilities. The SR-26im has a low-frequency sensitivity of 99dB/W, high-frequency sensitivity of 108 dB/W and a frequency range of 54Hz – 23kHz.
Little brother to the SR-26im, the SR-6im features the same driver components but with a single woofer, providing installers with a lower cost and smaller speaker option. The SR-26im has a low-frequency sensitivity of 93dB/W, high-frequency sensitivity of 108 dB/W and a frequency range of 58Hz – 31kHz.
Paired with PRO’s DSP Loudspeaker Controllers, the system employs proprietary digital signal processing for high-resolution frequency response contouring, dynamics processing, and critical time alignment. Along with the other new S and SR Series loudspeakers, PRO is providing system designers with extensive engineering data, including EASE complex polar data, and complete 360-degree on- and off-axis response measurements. During the system design process, integrators can now use the expanded data to accurately model the acoustic performance of a system.
“The new additions to the SR Series, including the unique pivot bracket, provide integrators with three in-wall, multi-use loudspeakers with installation flexibility like never before,” said Paul Hales, President and Product Designer of Pro Audio Technology. “A refresh to PRO’s most attainable loudspeakers, we know integrators will appreciate the acoustic enhancements, new design, and added installation possibilities.”
PRO’s new SR Series loudspeakers will begin shipping in September, and will be on display at CEDIA Expo in booth #SR-6, September 10 – 14, 2019. Interested dealers can contact their Pro Audio Technology rep or distributor directly for pricing.
