XANTECH XTC Reference Series Speakers Win 2007 EXC!TE Award

Xantech's Premium Speaker Series Takes Top Honors

Sylmar, Calif. - September 12, 2007 - Xantech Corporation announced that the company's XTC Reference Series speakers are the recipient of a 2007 Exc!te Award, presented by Custom Retailer magazine. The Exc!te Awards honor products that best exemplify the excitement and growth of the custom installation and consumer electronics industries. Winners are chosen by Custom Retailer's editors and contributors, as well as selected retailers and industry observers, and were given out during CEDIA EXPO 2007 in Denver, Colorado.


"Our engineers were tasked with examining every aspect of a speaker's performance in developing the XTC Reference Series, and I am very proud of the final product," said Graham Hallett, president of Xantech. "I am also extremely pleased with the fact that the professionals at Custom Retailer magazine have recognized our speakers with an Exc!te Award."

With a reputation for innovation, high quality, superior performance and perceived value in the market, Xantech began development of the XTC Reference Speakers three years ago with a mandate to deliver the ultimate in value and performance. The finished products evolved into three distinct model ranges, with the XTC Reference as the premium series targeted to customers who appreciate the ultimate in fidelity, clarity and balance. The XTC Reference series is Xantech's no compromise solution for unparalleled durability and matchless sound reproduction. A pivoting titanium dome tweeter allows pure piston motion throughout the frequency spectrum. Rear acoustic damping and positive rubber surround removes ringing and achieves pure tones with low distortion. Premium Al/Mg aluminum magnesium materials stay rigid during the most extreme bass notes, and the agility delivers accuracy and dynamic bass response. A large titanium woofer voice coil increases power handling and results in greater control over the cone.
