SPEAKERCRAFT TAKES IT OUTSIDE

Creating A Dramatic Experience In The Exterior Environment

RIVERSIDE, CA - May 2006: SpeakerCraft, America´┐½s original manufacturer of in -wall speakers, announces an entirely new line of outdoor speakers. The introduction of the Outdoor Elements fills the need for high -quality sonic performance in all exterior applications.


The Outdoor Elements were designed to provide the full -bodied dynamic performance outdoors that will truly enhance the lifestyle of homeowners. These new speakers can be placed under eves, around patios, near the pool and even in shrubbery to provide a seamless transition from the home to the backyard.

´┐½Open -air applications require entirely different EQ curves and driver complements to create the same natural response experienced in an enclosed space´┐½, said Jeremy Burkhardt, SpeakerCraft´┐½s president. ´┐½These loudspeakers provide the sonic performance homeowners demand.´┐½

This new series comes in a wide variety of sizes and performance standards. All Outdoor Elements speakers feature aluminum grilles, a pivoting bracket mount and are 100% weather -resistant. Difficult areas that do not have space to mount a pair of speakers can be covered nicely with SpeakerCraft´┐½s Wide Coverage Outdoor Elements DT, which play both left and right channels out of one speaker.

There are six speaker models and two dual tweeter models. SRP for the speakers range in price from $325 per pair to $625 per pair and the DTs from $275 to $375 each.

SpeakerCraft, established in 1976, devoted itself for more than a decade to the design and de´┐½velopment of architectural loudspeakers and became known as the prime OEM for many well -known, in -wall speaker brands in the field. In marketing its own brand, now one of the widest lines of architectural speakers in the industry, SpeakerCraft brings with it years of experience and a dedication to dealer satisfaction.
