ANN ARBOR, Mich. ‘ March 2, 2009 ‘ Leon Speakers Inc., a manufacturer of custom-built, audiophile-grade loudspeakers for flat-panel displays, today introduced its new Vault In-Wall Series, a redesigned family of high-fidelity in-wall speakers. Designed as both in-wall mains or as timbre-matched rear channels to perfectly complement the Leon Horizon or Profile Series speakers, these fully sealed and acoustically dampened handcrafted cabinets are available with paintable metal grills or custom-colored fabric grills to perfectly match any room’s dA©cor.
At a depth of only 3.75 inches, Leon’s Vault in-wall speakers fit in any standard wall. They come equipped with high-fidelity, timbre-matched 4-inch (v114i) or 5-inch (v115i) drivers and 1-inch cloth-dome Morel tweeters for uncompromising sound quality. The enclosures are constructed from A¾-inch thermo-wrapped MDF, and feature a 10-gauge laser-cut, cold-rolled precision flange.
A truly integrated sound solution, the speakers offer a unique isolation point mounting system to allow for easy installation pre- or post-construction and superior vibration dampening. A butyl gasket between the wall and speaker further reduces unwanted resonance.
“At Leon, we like to take things one step beyond the ordinary. Our commitment to custom design has been a great success for our on-wall speakers, such as the Profile and Horizon Series, and we are pleased to bring this same approach to our new Vault line of in-wall speakers,” said Noah Kaplan, president of Leon Speakers. “Like all Leon products, our in-wall speakers combine unmatched sound quality with an extra level of in-house custom options. The Vault line offers a variety of drivers and woofers, in addition to magnetic grills that can be custom finished in any color or wrapped in more than 70 different fabrics to match any room.”
Leon’s v114i is available with standard, audiophile-grade, or Peerless HDS woofers at a starting price of $995. The v115i is available with European or audiophile-grade woofers at a starting price of $1,195. Both models are now shipping.
