September 4, 2008 — For Immediate Release
WOODBURY, NY — JBL, Inc., is introducing its ES Series ES250PW and ES150PW wireless powered subwoofers at CEDIA Expo 2008. Both high-performance models can be used with a custom-installation, home theater or music system without running any connecting wires through walls or under floors, making installation simple. The ES250PW and ES150PW are designed to deliver exceptional sound quality, and are available in a choice of two attractive finishes to complement any custom installation and home entertainment system.
Both subwoofers include a transmitter module that connects to an audio/video receiver or other source, and operates in the 2.4GHz frequency range for clear, reliable signal transmission to the subwoofers’ built-in wireless receiver unit. Both models feature a full complement of controls and connection options for optimal performance in any system and room.
The ES250PW incorporates a built-in 400-watt amplifier and 12-inch woofer, and the ES150PW features a 300-watt amplifier and 10-inch woofer. The woofer cones are made from proprietary PolyPlas polymer-coated-cellulose-fiber cone material, which combines the sonic neutrality of paper with the added rigidity and damping of the PolyPlas treatment to attenuate cone resonances, provide superior articulation, and allow higher playback levels without distortion. Both models incorporate JBL FreeFlow-port technology, which utilizes a specially shaped bass port that is tuned to the woofer and enclosure for extended low-frequency response and improved efficiency.
In common with all JBL ES Series loudspeakers, the ES250PW and ES150PW feature distinctive new styling — tapered enclosures, a unified center section and a front baffle that curves into the top surface. The center section is accented by contrasting side panels. The ES250PW and ES150PW are available in two stunning finishes: black with a charcoal center section, and cherry with a charcoal center; both have black grilles.
The ES250PW and ES150PW can be used with any floorstanding, bookshelf, in-wall or on-wall speaker to create a complete multichannel speaker system that delivers exceptional surround sound. The subwoofers employ JBL room-friendly acoustical-design principles, ensuring they will provide powerful and articulate bass performance in the widest variety of listening environments and placement positions.
The JBL ES250PW is currently available at a suggested retail price of $729, and the ES150PW is currently available at $599 suggested retail.
