RUSSOUND COMPLEMENTS SPEAKERS WITH NEW SUBS

Freestanding Models Can Be Easily Tuned For Home Theater or Music

CES, Las Vegas, NV January 5, 2005 - Russound, a leading manufacturer of multi -room a/v products for the residential systems market, unveiled a new line of active freestanding subwoofers. Named the Complement Series, the three affordable models are designed for use in quality home theater applications where a subwoofer is essential for lifelike reproduction. The new Russound subwoofers are scheduled for delivery in March, 2005.


All three Complement models come in Satin Black finish and feature Dual Tuning. Dual Tuning represents specially designed dual ports that allow the listener to tailor the bass response for either music or home theater. Model R12DT ($649 MAP) features a 12" bass driver with 200 watt amplifier, R10DT ($449 MAP) a 10" bass driver and 120 watts and the R8DT ($299 MAP) an 8" bass driver and 60 watt amplifier. All accept either high or level inputs allowing the Complement subs to be compatible with a wide range of source equipment.

According to Ian Popken, Director of Product Development for Russound, "Four out of five multi -room audio installations have at least one room with a home theater. Therefore the need for a subwoofer in home theater is essential and in many instances it is more practical to utilize a freestanding model even when in -wall or on -wall speakers are being used." Mr. Popken went on to add, "Our new subs were also designed for versatility and are perfectly suited for use with home hifi or in -wall loudspeakers to 'complement' their bass response."

Along with Russound's award -winning line of Multi -Room AV products, the new Complement Series of subwoofers will be on display at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) January 6 -9, 2005. The Russound booth is # 21540 in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.
