NILES INTRODUCES 26 NEW CEILING -MOUNT LOUDSPEAKERS AND SUBWOOFERS AT CEDIA EXPO

Comprehensive line of ceiling-mount architectural speaker solutions unveiled by Niles Audio Corporation

DENVER, COLORADO - SEPTEMBER 14, 2006 - Niles Audio Corporation, The First Name in Custom Installation®, announces the introduction of 26 new ceiling -mount loudspeaker and subwoofer solutions designed to deliver outstanding audio performance from a discrete location. The new line will be unveiled at CEDIA EXPO in Denver, CO in September.


All models (grouped in five series) install easily, feature impact resistant ABS paintable frames, weather resistant hardware and Niles exclusive rustproof MicroPerf™ aluminum grilles, which make them ideal for any environment, even bathrooms and kitchens. Several models feature patented Twist and Lock installation, giving integrators the ability to simply twist, lock and install each speaker into place. Additionally, each ceiling -mount speaker features an integrated woofer/baffle assembly that allows for a larger woofer cone area - and more powerful bass - without enlarging the speaker frame/grille.

"Ceiling -mount speakers are the largest and fastest growing segment of the custom installation speaker market, as they create the perfect balance between performance and style," said Frank K. Sterns, president of Niles. "As such, we have focused a great deal of our research and development on perfecting the installation and quality of all Niles ceiling -mount solutions, including this latest line, which we are confident will provide the durability, style and performance installers and consumers demand."

The line is scheduled to ship in early 2007.
