Shipping Low Profile, Fast-Installing Speaker with SpeedMount

The SM 3 installs very quickly and easily when the mounting plates are preinstalled during rough-in, leaving just a simple step for the integrator to slide the speaker onto the plate

Anaheim, California (June 5, 2012) - Extron Electronics is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the SM 3, a compact, fast-installing flush mount speaker featuring the Extron SpeedMount System. This 8 ohm speaker features a 3" (7.6 cm) full-range driver and tuned bass port, a wide frequency response of 75 Hz to 18 kHz, and a power rating of 15 watts continuous pink noise, 30 watts continuous program capacity. The enclosure for the SM 3 measures less than 4" (10.2 cm) deep. SpeedMount is an Extron-exclusive, concealed mounting system designed to speed up installation. During rough-in, electrical contractors can install a 0° or 10° mounting plate on the wall and terminate the speaker cable to the mount's integrated wiring contacts. Later, installers can slide the SM 3 speaker onto the mount and secure it into place with a "click," automatically connecting to the wiring contacts on the mounting plate.


"The SM 3 installs very quickly and easily when the mounting plates are preinstalled during rough-in, leaving just a simple step for the integrator to slide the speaker onto the plate," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. "SpeedMount also conceals the mounting hardware and features a lockable speaker release mechanism to deter theft, while providing a neat, clean installation with no visible cabling."

The SM 3 speaker is ideally suited for small to medium classrooms and conference rooms where surface mount speakers are desired, but wall space for speaker placement is limited. It provides wide frequency response and wide coverage from a compact enclosure to optimize voice intelligibility without compromising music reproduction.

A release on the speaker baffle allows for quick removal from the mount. The release is hidden and can be locked to deter theft, together with the concealed speaker wiring contacts. When used with the 0° mounting plate, the SM 3 protrudes less than 4" from the wall to comply with ADA requirements on protrusion limits.

The SM 3 is sold in pairs and is available in a black or white finish, and includes a 5 year parts and labor warranty.
