SpeakerCraft to Add High -performance On -wall

New Speakers Designed to Enhance Flat Panel Televisions

RIVERSIDE, CA: August 2006 SpeakerCraft, America's original manufacturer of in -wall speakers, announces Tantra, a new series of speakers designed to compliment the aesthetics of flat -panel televisions. The 5 models in the series offers solutions for any home theater environment.


While each model comes with a secure bracket assembly to allow mounting onto any wall surface, they are not limited only to on -wall placement. Attractively styled floor or table stands are available as options. The cabinets are all fabricated out of aluminum and are available in silver or black finishes to match any flat panel television.

Careful selection of materials has helped to guarantee exceptional sonic performance. Each model uses 5.25" aluminum woofers with integrated phase plugs and 1" pivoting, aluminum dome tweeters. The Tantra Three adds a 2.5" aluminum midrange incorporated into SpeakerCraft's exclusive UniPivot. This assembly allows the user to aim the critical high and midrange frequencies toward the listening area. The smooth and rounded front baffles and grille integration have all been designed to minimize unwanted high frequency reflections.


Tantra is a complete new line of upscale loudspeakers from SpeakerCraft. Designed to appeal to customers with a more critical ear, all Tantra loudspeakers feature esoteric drivers and cross -over components. A great deal of the design effort was focused on enclosures that are both physically appealing and able to couple with the electronic elements to provide the sonic performance which is so critical in higher end systems. The line includes in -wall, on -wall and floor -standing versions as well as subwoofers and compact models for placement in wall units and custom cabinetry.

SpeakerCraft, established in 1976, devoted itself for more than a decade to the design and development 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.
