Snell Introduces Two High -Performance Passive In -Wall Subwoofers

The AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88 Duplicate Performance of Conventional Subwoofers and Fit in Standard 2x4 Walls

CEDIA EXPO, Indianapolis, Sept. 5, 2003 -Snell Acoustics, acclaimed for its tradition of handcrafted loudspeakers with leading edge designs, introduces two in -wall subwoofer models, the AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88 at CEDIA EXPO 2003 beginning today in Indianapolis.


Continuing to push the performance envelope for In -Wall loudspeakers, Snell duplicates the remarkable performance of their conventional subwoofers for an in -wall application by designing the AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88. The AMC Sub10 is fully enclosed and well suited for new construction. The AMC Sub10's specially designed enclosure prevents sound leakage, vibrations, and boominess. The AMC Sub88 uses a different driver assembly and is "open backed" making it better suited for retrofits.

TheSub10 uses a 10 -inch cast frame woofer, which permits extremely long linear excursions. The AMC Sub88 uses two stiff suspension 8" long throw woofers. The AMC Sub10 and Sub88 are among the only subwoofers available that offer the performance of a freestanding subwoofer, invisibly, delivering extraordinary dynamics and bass response to well below 40Hz at levels up to 105dB in rooms up to 2500cf.

Like all the Snell AMC Series in -wall loudspeakers the entire speaker baffle of the AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88 is made inert by using Snell's "Noise Killer" technology that minimizes wall cavity resonance and optimizes low -end response. The three -part baffle is made up of two MDF layers sandwiching a high loss -damping layer. Even with the performance enhancing design, both models are space efficient and will easily to fit into conventional 2 x 4 walls, even behind acoustically transparent screens.

The AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88 are equipped with 5 -way gold plated terminals and will accept spades up to 5/16 -inch, pins, banana plugs and bare wire up to 12 -gauge. Both come in either white or black cloth over a metal frame. All speakers are hand build in the Peabody, MA factory and tested to rigorously match the Master Reference within ±0.5dB.

Both the AMC Sub10 and AMC Sub88 will sell for a suggested list price of $800. They can be seen with Snell's other outstanding products at Booths 1304 and 1308 in the Indianapolis Convention Center during CEDIA EXPO.
