Crestron has introduced an in-wall subwoofer, developed in partnership with Origin Acoustics, and a streaming preamplifier for high-performance Audio-over-IP (AoIP), the DM NAX 4-Zone. Both are set to play major roles in filling out Crestron’s increasingly comprehensive suite of residential audio solutions.

The Crestron Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer is the latest addition to Crestron’s lineup of home audio solutions, which comprises over a dozen architectural and landscape loudspeakers. It’s designed to partner enclosures from the Ultimate and Reference lines, to reinforce bass in demanding multiroom audio settings or home theatre applications, and pairs natively with DM NAX AoIP technology and Crestron Home ecosystem.

Like the other offerings in this line, the Ultimate In-Wall sub has a paintable grille for interiors customisation, and uses an in-wall dogleg mounting system optimised to reduce interference with other elements present in the wall space.

The newest addition to the DM NAX line, the preamp expands the range of options available to integrators looking for residential AoIP distribution platforms. With a slim 1RU form but similar in function to the DM NAX Amplifier, it natively integrates with Crestron Home, and is interoperable with AES67, and Dante audio networking.

The unit uses hardwired connections, and requires no custom network architecture or hardware, so installers can connect it to existing amplifiers in retrofit jobs or new builds.

Crestron says the DM NAX can handle an entire house’s worth of audio systems, offering complete control of the audio environment to users, allowing them to toggle between TV audio, streaming music, podcasts, alarms, doorbells, and even paging and intercom usage to any speaker in the house.

“Both the Ultimate In-Wall Subwoofer and the expansion of our DM NAX solutions help us further our goal of providing integrators the most comprehensive suite of home audio solutions possible,” Crestron’s Michael Short, Director of Residential Marketing, said. “These products natively integrate with each other and with the broader Crestron Home platform giving integrators the ability to hit the ground running, whether they are starting a new project or scaling the smart ecosystem for an existing client.”

The Ultimate Subwoofer is shipping March 23, while the DM NAX 4-zone streaming pre-amplifier is available for pre-order.
