Xantech Rolls Out New Line of High -Power Volume Controls

New high-power volume controls allow use of more powerful amplifiers and bring new aesthetic options.

CEDIA EXPO, Denver, CO - 9/14/2006 Xantech has unveiled a versatile new line of impedance matching volume controls with a variety of features that virtually insure that no matter what the application, Xantech will have the perfect tool for the job.

The line consists of nine different SKUs: three are rated at 50 Watts/channel, five are indoor volume controls rated at 100 Watts/channel, and one is a100 Watt/channel outdoor volume control.
All of the volume controls are UL approved, have a frequency range of 20hz to 20khz and all can control either one, two, four or eight pairs of speakers.
The 50 Watt volume controls are available in rotary knobs with either Decora or standard wallplates in white. The 50 Watt sliding Decora style includes Almond, Black, Ivory and White Decora slider inserts in the box (All of the Decora style volume controls throughout the line are compatible with screwless Decora faceplates for the cleanest possible appearance).
Xantech 100 Watt volume controls are available in rotary knob with standard or Decora wallplates as well as a slide knob with Decora wallplate. In addition, there is a rotary and slide Decora style that also features an IR passthrough to simplify control installation. Almond, Black, Ivory and White Decora knobs or slider inserts are included with all of the 100 Watt indoor models. There's also a 100 Watt outdoor rotary model, available in gray only that helps simplify installation by including a weatherproof housing.
Rick Seegull, Technical Director of Sales and Marketing for Xantech said "Xantech has greatly expanded our line of volume controls in response to requests from installers. They know and trust the Xantech name to give them highly engineered products that they can depend on to get the job done."
Xantech's expanded line of volume controls will be available from their authorized dealers and distributors in the fourth quarter of 2006 with prices ranging from $40.00 for the 50 Watt Standard rotary volume control to $162.50 for the 100 Watt Decora rotary volume control with IR passthrough.
