August 4, 2006, Brunswick, ME. Terra Division of CAMM, Inc. is introducing two new high performance ceiling speakers at CEDIA Expo in Denver.
Terra Introduces Two New Ceiling Speakers
Both speakers are essentially impervious to the elements, making them ideal choices for typically difficult locations like steam rooms, saunas, bathrooms, outdoor walls, pool houses and the like. Every component part has been designed to remain rust and corrosion free as evidenced by the company's Limited Lifetime Warranty policy. And perhaps most unusual, Terra manufactures these products in their Maine factory, even going so far as to hand assemble their woofers in -house in order to ensure optimum performance and value.
Unique technical features include Terra's ACAD Anodized Ceramic Aluminum Diaphragms which make for very light and responsive cones that are particularly stiff and weather resistant. Also featured is the company's unusual Magnetic Fluid Centering System (MCFS) which eliminates the typical woofer spider and its associated limitations. The spider has been replaced with specially developed Magnetic Fluid that provides the centering forces required by the driver while delivering lower distortion and reduced dynamic restriction of the cone's motion. Additionally, MCFS helps cool the driver's voice coil thus enhancing its power handling while also dramatically reducing thermal compression.
With every Terra speaker performance is as important as reliability and these are no exception. Therefore their acoustic design has been accomplished by industry legend Vance Dickason, author of The Loudspeaker Cookbook and editor of Voice Coil Magazine. Vance has once again come up with exceptionally natural sounding, accurate designs that belie their size and price.
Technical highlights include:
6.5" / 8" ACAD diaphragm cast alloy woofers with composite rubber surrounds
MCFS spider -free fluid suspension with high energy vented motor assemblies
1 -inch Aluminum alloy tweeters with Neodymium magnets and fluid cooling
Tilting, aim -able tweeter mounts
Air -core crossover inductors
Heavy -duty gold plated spring loaded binding posts
Full all weather exposure capability
Easy rotating "dog" captured screw mounting system
Limited Lifetime Warranty
Terra manufactures exceptionally high -quality outdoor and flush mount custom installation loudspeakers. Terra has been selling these excellent products for 6 years, into the custom installation and high -end audio marketplaces. See Terra at Booth 131, CEDIA Expo 2006. A high res photo will be available at www.terraspeakers.com on or about August 8th.
