SpeakerCraft from Core Brands today announced that its two new AIM Series 2 in-wall left-center-right (LCR) speakers, the AIM LCR5 FIVE Series 2 and the AIM LCR5 TWO Series 2, are now shipping worldwide. Both speakers are currently being showcased at ISE 2017 in Core Brands Stand 1-N53 at the RAI Convention in Amsterdam.
“The technologies employed in these speakers really help our dealers to deliver an exceptional audio experience for their customers,” said Mike Jordan, Core Brands VP of Product Development. “And, in addition to providing powerful standalone performances, both speakers can be paired with SpeakerCraft’s new Dolby Atmos® enabled in-wall height speaker – the ATX100 – to create one cohesive 360-degree audio system under a single grille.”
Both AIM Series 2 In-Wall LCR speakers employ the all-new Arrayed Point Source™ (APS) Tweeter Module, which incorporates three pivoting tweeters mounted in a rotational sound baffle to precisely focus the high frequency sound into the targeted listening area. Like their AIM Series 2 in-ceiling counterparts, the extra surface area from the three tweeters enables a lower crossover point to deliver extra sound pressure in the midrange frequencies critical for crisp, clear dialog.
Both models incorporate Dual, 5 ¼” woofers, angled within the assembly to prevent “acoustic lobing” and further improve clarity in the vocal frequencies essential to home theater audio. Both employ SpeakerCraft’s Acoustic Isolation Technology™ to minimize acoustic energy transfer to the mounting and surrounding surfaces.
The AIM LCR5 FIVE Series 2 matches its two woven Kevlar cone woofers with 1" Custom Titanium Dome Tweeters. It boasts a 48Hz - 22kHz frequency response with a power handling of 190 watts at 8 Ohm impedance. The AIM LCR5 TWO Series 2 pairs its two glass and carbon fiber cones with 1" custom soft dome tweeters. It delivers a frequency response of 52Hz - 20kHz with a power handling of 135 watts at 8 Ohm impedance.
Both of these new in-walls can be paired with SpeakerCraft’s new Dolby Atmos® enabled in-wall height speaker – the ATX100 – to take full advantage of the latest object-based surround audio systems, such as Dolby Atmos and DTS:X®. In fact, the ATX100 is the first available in-wall height speaker to carry the “Dolby Atmos Enabled” moniker and was named Loudspeaker of the Year at the 2017 Consumer Technology Association’s Mark of Excellence Award Ceremony last month at CES. The ATS500 System pairs the AIM LCR5 FIVE Series 2 with the ATX100 behind a single grille. The ATS200 System combines the AIM LCR5 TWO Series 2 with the height module, also behind a single grille.
The AIM LCR5 FIVE Series 2 and AIM LCR5 TWO Series 2 have MSRPs of US $879 and US $749, respectively.
