Indianapolis — Klipsch Group’s Jamo brand is expanding its assortment of custom-installed speakers with a Custom 200 series that’s priced more than its opening-price Contractor series but below its Custom 400 and 600 series.

The four bezel-less speakers consist of the $239-each IW 206 FG in-wall speaker and three in-ceiling models. Those are the $349-each IC 206 LCR FG, the $449/pair IC 208 FG, and the $449/pair IC 206 FG.

It’s the third line in the custom series to feature flat, bezel-less grilles, a spokesperson said. The magnetic grilles are paintable to match a room’s décor.

All are two-way models except for the three-way LCR speaker.

The Custom 200 series, available through dealers in February, brings the acoustic and aesthetic design of the higher-priced Custom 400 and Custom 600 lines “into an all-new, high-value line of architectural speakers,” the spokesperson said. The company also said the speakers deliver “audiophile-grade performance at unparalleled price points.”

All feature a 6.5-inch woofer except for the IC 208 FG, which features an 8-inch woofer. All have adjustable-angle tweeters, and the LCR adds a 1.5-inch midrange driver.

The series uses aluminized injection-molded graphite woofers to increase rigidity with minimal weight to deliver “exceptional mid- and low-frequency response,” the company said. The speakers also feature 1-inch polymer soft-dome tweeters and Jamo’s hard conical cone, decoupled tweeter and waveguide technologies.
