Phoenix Gold® Debuts Compact Super Bessel Array In -Wall Speaker System

The Phoenix Gold IHI100 Multi-Way Speaker System Includes Six 76mm Midwoofers that Feature the Same Output of an 8-inch Woofer

PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 9, 2007 - Phoenix Gold® (phoenixgold.com) is proud to announce the launch its new 150 Watt Super Bessel Array In -Wall Speaker System at the 2007 Electronic House Fall Expo, held in Long Beach, Calif. from Nov. 7 -9 at the Long Beach Convention Center, booth 1257. With an MSRP of $249 and scheduled to ship in January 2008, the IHI100 multi -way speaker system includes six 76mm midwoofers that feature the same output of an 8 -inch woofer.


"Using Super Bessel technology, Phoenix Gold, in partnership with STEP Technologies, has created a completely unique product for the in -wall marketplace," explained Stewart Millager, Phoenix Gold director of engineering. "Unlike any other currently available product, the IHI100 has virtually the same response mounted either vertically or horizontally. The result has to be heard to be believed...a stable, coherent response that fills a room with no hot or dead spots caused by comb filtering."

Features of Phoenix Gold's IHI100 Super Bessel Array In -Wall Speaker System include:
• Power handling: 15 - 150 Watts
• Frequency response: 75 - 20KHz
• Impedance: 6 Ohm
• Dimensions: 15.25 in. x 8.25 in. x 3.25 in.
• Six 76mm midwoofers
• 1 -inch long throw silk dome tweeter
• Flat frequency response horizontally and vertically +/ - 30 degrees
• Excellent polar pattern
• Dogleg mounting system
• White with black baffle

"The benefit of a Bessel array is the fact that it actually consists of a vertical array of speakers that line up in such a way that the vertical and horizontal responses are virtually the same as a point source," added Millager. "The additional benefit of a Super Bessel array is that it opens up a new range of products that benefit from multiple drivers and superior off axis response."

Due to continual product improvement, pricing and specifications subject to change without notice.
