Russound's First On -Wall Speaker To Feature Super Bessel Array Technology

Patent-pending SBA Technology Improves Dispersion at Higher Characteristics

DENVER, CO, September 12, 2006 - Russound, the #1 brand in multiroom audio, today announced the introduction of its first on -wall speaker, the Complement LCR, a technically and aesthetically designed speaker, suitable for front -of -the -room placement as a left -, center -, or right -channel speaker.


With the slender profile appearance of modern flat -panel video displays, the Complement On -Wall LCR is the first speaker of its kind to incorporate the exclusive patent -pending Super Bessel ArrayTM (SBA) technology. Smooth sound dispersion patterns are achieved by using multiple small drivers with the interaction between them minimized. The result is a neutral and detailed listening area, whether the speaker is mounted vertically or horizontally, even with the listener sitting off axis. In addition to placement in the front of the room, this speaker can also be used as a surround speaker in a multichannel audio system or as a stereo pair.

"When Russound committed to entering the on -wall market, we set out to create a product with a true point of differentiation," said Jeremy Frost, Russound Product Manager. "With SBA technology, music and movie fans will experience a much wider 'sweet spot' than with most currently available on -wall speakers, and dealers will appreciate the fact that the Complement LCR is remarkably easy to install. It is a great solution for installations where existing masonry makes it a challenge to incorporate in -wall speakers."

The Complement On -Wall LCR consists of an array of six 3.5" mid/low -frequency drivers coupled with a 1" audiophile -grade high -frequency driver housed in an extruded aluminum cabinet, with each driver housed in a separate subenclosure. The product includes both black and silver grilles to easily coordinate with any A/V equipment or room décor.

Measuring 25.5" x 4.6" x 4.6" (H/W/D) and weighing 17.7 lbs., the On -Wall LCR is scheduled for release in Q2 2007, at a US MAP of $625. It will be available with wall mounting bracket, a mounting template and a hex key.
