James Loudspeaker is presenting will introduce a series of 2.1 soundbars at ISE which feature a center-mounted subwoofer. These LR-S format soundbars, which can be customised to match nearly any flat-panel display, are ideal for bringing clarity and full-range sound to applications where an external subwoofer is impractical.   

James Loudspeaker initially engineered the LR-S solutions based on market demand from commercial integrators seeking premium audio for boardrooms, conference rooms, lobbies, retail showrooms and nightclubs. Residential integrators also have adopted the LR-S format for bedrooms and other zones where a flatpanel TV is present but surround sound isn't required.

Currently available in the company’s SPL5, SPL6 and SPL8 Series, the LR-S are an obvious match for the James Loudspeaker A2.1 three-channel amplifier, which features onboard crossovers and independent controls for easy system calibration.  

James Loudspeaker will also be showing its Small Aperture (SA) architectural speakers (below, left) at ISE.  Its 42SA-4 in-ceiling/in-wall 2-way loudspeaker, is the most compact Small Aperture model, able to fit into a shallow wall or ceiling environments such as a 2x4 stud bay. 

“James Loudspeaker engineering has been on a mission to give integrators, architects and designers a compact, more affordable solution without sacrificing performance or custom flexibility,” explains James Loudspeaker CEO Mark Schafle. “The 42SA-4 showcases our capacity to creatively develop and engineer drivers and complete systems optimizing performance for unique applications. Our objective has always been to deliver the finest entertainment systems imaginable that fit just about any wall or ceiling and can be matched to any décor.” 

The 42SA-4 uses proprietary drivers including an aluminum 4-inch woofer and a 2-inch midrange/high-frequency module, feeing into a 3-inch opening.

Finally, taking care also of providing great sound for outdoor applications, the company is bringing its Omni Planter landscape speaker systems (pictured above, right) to Europe, engineered for applications where in-ground solutions are not practical. Omni Planter speakers incorporate a down-firing subwoofer and deliver 360-degrees of sparkling clear entertainment. 

All Omni Planter models can accommodate a plant of choice in the top section of the all-aluminum powder coated loudspeaker enclosure, which is available in an array of standard and custom colors. Typical applications for the Omni Planter loudspeaker include rock-scape areas or any other environment where traditional satellite/subwoofer combinations cannot be installed. Tamper-proof brackets and bolts allow them to be secured to solid surfaces such as concrete.
