Sonance At ISE
Sonance will be at ISE in force for 2018, displaying an array of options.
The new Extreme speakers from Sonance boost performance with larger voice coil and magnet engines for higher SPL and increased power handling. The line comprises a round 6-inch (VPXT6R), a round 6-inch single stereo (VPXT6R SST), a 6-inch rectangle (VPXT6) and a new round 8-inch (VPXT8R). Round speakers have round or square grille options with improved grille mounting system (XPC grille retention technology), which has eight capture points and ensures that the grille will remain secure even during pressure washing.
Media room installations should meet at least three demands: to be ultra-discreet; to deliver the best audio performance for music listening and provide the audio impact and detail which enhance the movie experience. These are the objectives driving the design of the new Cinema Reference series. They may appear similar to their predecessors – in fact, having the same footprint, they’ll drop into existing cavities for easy upgrade – but add larger drivers to go louder and lower than before. Their 4th generation coaxial speakers employ carbon fibre/rohacell laminated cones paired with ceramic dome tweeters. The high-excursion woofers have 38mm voice coils, which deliver +/- 8mm of linear excursion. There are nine new SKUs including two in-wall LCR speakers, two matching in-wall surrounds, two in-wall subs an in-ceiling LCR (with separately sold enclosure), and an in-ceiling surround (with separately sold enclosure. A cabinet centre channel is also available if an in-wall centre channel speaker isn’t practical.
The two new Reference subwoofers (10- and 12-inch) will drop into the in-wall cabinets of their predecessors and are equipped with dual spider technology for a level of performance and output that is unmatched in an in-wall subwoofer.
The new Sonance ported design ‘Impact’ cabinet subwoofers - the i8, i10 and i12 (8/10/12-inch, 200W/300W/500W) include DSP with 16-band parametric EQ and room correction via the SonARC iPhone app through a built-in wireless receiver and optional wireless transmitter.
Finally, the D8 dual 8-inch SQUARE subwoofer offers the same output as a 12-inch woofer within an ultra-compact cabinet design. Includes DSP with 16-band parametric EQ and room correction via the SonARC iPhone app through a built-in wireless receiver and optional wireless transmitter.
