Flat Panel Audio Takes On A Whole New Dimension

Proficent's F400 Dual 4" LCR Onwall Loudspeaker Presents A Unique Point-of-View On Cinema Sound

Riverside, CA, January 14, 2008 - Proficient Audio Systems, a world leader in the design and manufacturing of premium Home Cinema components, announces the release of its all -new F400 high performance onwall LCR speaker.


The speaker boasts a unique design that puts the focus squarely on performance. Each speaker features a symmetrical, dual 4" woofer and 1" pivoting tweeter layout that allows the user to create an LCR system with unusally wide dispersion on either a vertical or horizontal plane. By placing an F400 on the left, right and center channel positions, installing dealers can achieve consistency in sound character and timbre.

"The F400 represents the best of what the Proficient brand is all about," said Keith Marshall, President, Proficient Audio Systems. "The speaker is a successful fusion of style and substance that blends category -leading performance; premium materials and construction; and design that's right at home in any environment."

The F400's impressive list of technical components deserve an equally impressive cabinet to house them. And the F400 delivers with cabinets available in black and silver to complement LCD and Plasma screens. Plus, the F400 comes with the security of Proficient's renowned 10 -year limited warranty.

"We designed the F400 to deliver the strong level of value that our customers have come to expect from Proficient. We are very enthusiastic about its prospects in the marketplace and we'll provide our dealers with the most aggressive marketing support to ensure that success."

The F400 has a MSRP of $500 each and is shipping now.
