Matrix Audio Design Begins Shipping Innovative Flagship C -Series Family of In -Ceiling Speak

When Combined with the Optional SWT Speaker Module, Matrix Audio's C-Series Speakers Enable Users to Control Zone Audio via the Matrix Delta Controller and Remote, Eliminating the Need for Wall-Mounted Controls

ORLANDO - March 30, 2006 - Matrix Audio Designs, a manufacturer of high -fidelity audio distribution systems for homes and businesses, today announced at the 2006 Electronic House Expo (booth # 841) that it has begun shipping its flagship C -Series family of in -ceiling speakers. Incorporating Matrix Audio's proprietary Speaker Wire Technology™ (SWT), the C -Series speakers support an optional SWT Speaker Module which enables users to control the audio in each zone or room wirelessly via the new Matrix Delta controller or Delta remote, eliminating the need for wall -mounted controls.

The C -Series product family, which was designed to deliver the rich vocal depth and dynamic range that traditional home audio distribution systems lack, uses the highest quality components available to deliver exceptional acoustical performance while providing the most affordable and versatile high performance solution in the industry.

In addition to the 6.5 - and 8 -inch high -performance C:6 and C:8 speakers, Matrix Audio's C:6DT and C:8DT speakers incorporate dual voice coils and dual tweeters to provide stereo performance for single speaker applications in small applications such as bathrooms and hallways.

"The availability of our innovative C -series family of high -performance speakers gives users unprecedented versatility in the installation and control of the total Matrix Audio solution," explained Jeff Wait, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Matrix Audio Designs. "While these speakers produce a level of rich, dynamic audio that most other in -ceiling speakers are incapable of producing, the incorporation of our proprietary SWT makes it possible for users to deliver and control distributed audio to rooms where the installation of wall -mounted controls is impractical or impossible. A user can simply connect our optional SWT Speaker Module to one of the C -Series speakers in each 'zone' to enable full audio control through a Matrix Audio IR remote."

Available now through resellers nationwide throughout the U.S. and Canada and internationally overseas, Matrix Audio Designs' C -Series Speakers are covered by a two -year limited warranty.
