Garner, NC - September 19, 2017 - 21st Century Distributing, the premier consumer electronics distributor serving the Southeast and PowerHouse Alliance member, adds Vanco International's Beale Street Audio™ brand of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, subwoofers, and amplifiers, for greater variety of solutions for dealers and custom installers.

Beale Street Audio speakers' acclaimed Sonic Vortex® technology, caught the attention of Vanco International, who acquired the line earlier this year. The line's patented design provides an unprecedented level of bass output and dynamics from a shallow speaker, and a 6 to 9 dB boost in the mid-lower bass ranges and a flatter frequency response across the audio spectrum compared to sealed models.

"We have been selling AV products and accessories from Vanco International for many years and have a great partnership with them," said Don Vicini, CEO and owner of 21st Century Distributing. "Our dealers are big fans of Beale Street Audio's signature sound and solid build quality, so adding the line was a logical move."

"21st Century Distributing is one of our key distributor partners, and we're pleased that they are adding the full Beale Street Audio line to their current selection of top AV products," said Mark Corbin, Vice President of Distribution Markets, Vanco International. "We are confident 21st Century's dealers and their customers will benefit from the line's superior performance, warranties, customer support, and competitive prices."

Dealers can now purchase the full Beale Street Audio line from any of 21st Century Distributing's five warehouses, including 4-inch, 6.5-inch and 8-inch in-ceiling speaker models, 4-inch and 6.5-inch in-wall speaker models, angled in-ceiling and dual voice coil models, 6.5-inch and 8-inch in-ceiling subwoofers, plus single and multi-room amplifiers, and subwoofer amplifiers for residential audio solutions. 70/100v in-ceiling speakers are also available for commercial installations.
