— SpeakerCraft is expanding its presence in certain categories and entering new ones here at the CEDIA Expo.
It will launch its first underground outdoor subwoofer, first tabletop music systems, new in-room speakers, and new flangeless in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.
The tabletop music systems are singlechassis iPad/iPod/iPhone-docking systems that incorporate FM tuner. One adds a single CD drive. Both feature a mini USB port to enable iPod/iPhone/iPad syncing with a PC, the company said.
The FloBox Mini without CD, and the FloBox with CD, ship in the first quarter. The former features two 3-inch woofers and two 0.75-inch tweeters, while the step-up model features two 3.5-inch midwoofers, two 0.75-inch dome tweeters, and a single 5.25-inch subwoofer.
The company’s first in-ground subwoofer, the BoomTomb, will join an outdoor rock subwoofer in the fourth quarter. The BoomTomb features a 10-inch long-throw subwoofer driver.
In new in-room cabinet speakers, Speaker- Craft developed the Roots line of three small speakers and two powered subs. The new line consists of three-two way models with 3.5-, 4.5- and 6.5-inch woofers accompanied, respectively, by 0.5-, 0.75- and 1-inch silkdome tweeters.
The new nine SKU flangeless in-wall and inceiling speakers put a fresh face on the company’s current AIM and CRS series speakers by providing magnet-mount grilles with no visible flange for a less-obtrusive look. Shipments are in the fourth quarter.
Pricing for the line will be available at the show.
