new ones here at the CEDIA Expo.
It will launch its first underground outdoor

in-room speakers, and new flangeless in-wall
and in-ceiling speakers.
The tabletop music systems are singlechassis

the BoomTomb, will join an outdoor rock subwoofer
in the fourth quarter. The BoomTomb
features a 10-inch long-throw subwoofer driver.

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
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.
