Tough Enough for the Job at University of Colorado Boulder

When Technology Support engineers at the University of Colorado Boulder went looking for surface mount speakers to use in the school’s “smart” classrooms they had three criteria: the speakers had to have excellent sound quality, be well-priced and rugged enough to survive the college experience. Located in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, UC Boulder serves 29,000 students on a 786-acre campus with 200 university buildings. With a facility this size it’s no wonder the tech engineers chose OWI speakers. OWI Incorporated, a 30-year manufacturer of advanced audio equipment for AV integrators, and commercial, industrial and residential applications, has a well-earned reputation for superior performance and product longevity.

“OWI’s T800 8 ohm 2-way weatherized speakers were our original choice and they have not disappointed us. Equipment tends to get abused around here and the OWI speakers have held up very well,” said Eric Sherrill, an Educational Technologist in UC Boulder’s Information Technology Services Department. “Recently, at the suggestion of Giovanni Rossini, OWI’s East Coast Sales Manager, we started using the P5278 speakers since most of our applications are indoors. The P5278 speakers sound great and are at a lower price point, so it’s a win-win situation,” added Sherrill. “Over the years we’ve come to trust the quality OWI puts into their products. The school saves not only on the initial purchase but also in product longevity and labor costs. OWI also takes customer service very seriously–there’s always someone there to answer questions and give technical advice.”

OWI’s P-Series Speakers are a versatile line of indoor/outdoor surface-mounted speakers featuring a weatherized aluminum grill and mounting bracket and a rugged housing. The 70 volt/8 ohm selectable speakers are offered in 5-, 6- and 8-inch sizes with up to 80 watts RMS maximum power. OWI products are available through authorized dealers and distributors.
