Control4 Unveils New Line of Multi-Room Speakers at EHX 2008

Control4 has announced the release of a new speaker line at the 2008 EHX Show that includes the Control4 6.5" and 8" In-Ceiling and In-Wall Speakers and the Control4 6.5" and 8" In-Ceiling Stereo Speakers. These new, two-way speakers further Control4's commitment to provide its dealers, customers and retail partners with a diverse line of affordable surround sound and whole-home audio solutions.

By significantly reducing complexity and cost, Control4's speaker line becomes an attractive one-stop option for both new construction and retrofit solutions. Likewise for retrofitting environments where speaker wiring is not practical, the Control4 speaker solutions combine seamlessly with the Control4 Wi-Fi Speaker Point. The full multi-room audio solution can be configured for virtually any home or office with the Control4 Multi-Channel Amplifier, the Control4 Multi Tuner and the newly released Control4 HC-500 with a 160 GB hard drive.

Key features of the new line include:
- For limited spaces (e.g., master closet or small hallway), the in-ceiling stereo speaker option can be wired to deliver full, two-channel stereo sound from a single loud speaker, providing great sound quality with only one unobtrusive round ceiling grille showing;
- Speakers feature dual polymer cones, silk dome tweeters, rubber surrounds, high-temperature voice coils, advanced computer optimized crossovers and simple rotating clamp mounting;
- When used as surround speakers, the tweeter can be pivoted away towards the rear or sidewalls to deliver a diffuse upper midrange and high frequency creating a convincing, three-dimensional surround sound.
