A new ultrathin, actively powered onwall speaker

Chicago, IL - Sept. 5, 2013 - Opalum USA today announces the launch of a new ultrathin, actively powered onwall speaker, the BREEZE.1010, modeled after Opalum's award winning FLOW.1010.

All products will be on display at CEDIA Expo 2013. Full product and technical descriptions have been included as separate documents for your convenience.

Opalum's BREEZE.1010 will have a changeable high-density felt faceplates, available in four different colors, to allow interior designers and users the ability to custom match the speakers' aesthetics to their environment. The BREEZE.1010 also features specially developed arrays of paper-cone point-source drivers, and 80 watts of digital amplification, which also incorporates sophisticated digital crossovers, equalization, and phase correction circuits. The net result is an attractively thin onwall speaker with a big, dynamic, and clean sound. The new HUB II replaces the current control HUB and remote. As the HUB II utilizes IR Learning for use with programmable remotes, as well as RS-232 and IR for controlling functions with a home automation system, ease of use and flexibility are key advantages. The HUB II also features a re-engineered 24-volt DC power supply, Bluetooth connectivity, and mixed audio inputs.
