Terra Introduces AC.17 High Performance All -weather Speaker

Terra releases new top-of-the-line three driver two way all weather loudspeaker. Spectacular sonics from a truly weather proof design.

September 1, 2008; Brunswick, ME. Terra Loudspeakers is introducing a new top of the line model in its highly regarded AC Series of all -weather loudspeakers. The AC.17 is a three driver two -way system featuring dual 6.5 -inch ACAD™ cast frame woofers and a 1.1 -inch Titanium dome tweeter housed in a rotationally molded UniCavity™ polypropylene sealed enclosure. The system is capable of withstanding direct exposure to all types of weather and may even be installed without concern on sea -going vessels. Its attractive, smoothly rounded industrial design, by industry legend Alan Boothroyd of Boothroyd -Stuart Meridian™ fame maintains Terra's AC family "look and feel" while enhancing its sonic performance.

The AC.17 will deliver high quality high fidelity along with tight, tuneful bass due to its superior components, advanced acoustic design and the dual 6.5 -inch woofers, a new configuration for Terra. The AC.17 integrates particularly well when combined with Terra's dynamic AC.SUB outdoor subwoofer, creating an impressive outdoor hi -fi or the basis for an all -weather home theater.
Unique technical features include Terra's ACAD Anodized Ceramic Aluminum Diaphragms which make for very light, stiff and responsive weather -proof cones. Also featured is the company's unusual MFCS™ Magnetic Fluid Centering System which eliminates the typical woofer spider, replacing it with specially developed magnetic fluid, delivering lower distortion and reduced dynamic restriction of the cone's motion.
Multiple connector variations are available including the standard 5 -way gold binding posts, an optional water tight marine grade Conxall® connector, a water -tight fixed "pigtail", and a 70 -volt transformer model for larger distributed audio systems.
The smoothly rounded UniCavity enclosure eliminates unwanted diffraction effects of the high frequencies while providing an acoustically inert enclosure. Its three available colors (Black, White, Green), attractive shape and compact size mean the AC.17 will visually blend well in most any setting.
The AC.17 is essentially impervious to the elements since every component part has been designed to remain rust and corrosion free as evidenced by the company's Limited Lifetime Warranty policy. And perhaps most unusual, Terra manufactures these products in their recently expanded Maine factory, even going so far as to hand assemble their woofers in -house to ensure optimum performance and longevity.
Terra manufactures exceptionally high -quality enclosure type and flush mount weather -proof loudspeakers. Terra has been providing these excellent products into the residential custom installation market since 1998. For further information see www.terraspeakers.com or call 207 -725 -1005.
