In-Wall Planar Ribbon Surrounds Redefine Surround Speaker Performance

Carson City, NV, March 25, 2010 - BG Radia, the world leader in planar loudspeaker technology, announced the debut of two new planar ribbon surround speakers for in -wall or in -ceiling applications. The SS -202 and the SS -303 are made in the USA, are priced at $1000 and $2000 respectively each MSRP, and will ship in late April.

The SS -202 and the SS -303 are bipolar speakers that produce a very large diffuse soundfield. Both are designed to be used in -wall or in -ceiling, and both share their speaker drivers with the rest of our acclaimed primary speakers, both woofers and planar ribbon midranges and tweeters. By carefully adjusting mounting angles and studying how the adjacent speakers interact as they form a series of coherent sound waves, both speakers not only have very wide dispersion to fill the room, but also exhibit very linear and smooth frequency response over their entire response area. They maintain the same tonal quality and the same detailed and articulate sound, whether listeners are right in front of a speaker or well off -axis.

The SS -202 is a two -way speaker, featuring four 4" Neodymium woofers set in a concave array, and two Neo3 3" planar ribbon tweeters in a convex array. It is approximately 12" square. Its depth allows it to fit into a standard 2 x 4 framed wall, even using its optional extruded aluminum back box. It's available in black or white, or can be custom painted on -site to match the room.
The SS -303 is a larger three -way system, suitable for extremely large, high -performance theater systems. It features two 8" dual -gap woofers, the same as used in BG's flagship speakers, two Neo10 10" planar ribbon midranges in a concave array, and two Neo3 3" planar ribbon tweeters in a convex array. The SS -303 will also fit into a standard -depth framed wall, with or without a back box, and measures 32" x 11 -5/8". Like all BG Radia speakers, it is also available in black or white, or can be custom -painted to match its environment.

According to Tony Weber, National Sales Manager for BG, "We are now able to offer exceptional surround speakers for nearly any application. We have always had line arrays and monopoles for larger home theaters, but we now have in -wall bipoles for the discriminating customer who is looking for superb clarity and detail in smaller spaces, or who wish a more enveloping soundfield."

Mr. Weber went on to add, "With these new in -wall surrounds and our existing line of high performance in -wall models and award -winning BGX subwoofer systems, BG is positioned to offer the home theater designer exceptional flexibility in designing systems for clients that are looking for a complete in -wall home theater solution."
