New Updates to the Respected Contractor In-Wall and In-Ceiling Custom Installation Series
JACKSONVILLE, FL — Feb. 22, 2006 —Phase Technology today announced that it will bring to market five new speaker models within the Contractor Series (CS) in-wall and in-ceiling lineup. The company will be shipping its new fixed tweeter and pivoting models in early 2006 to replace the existing in-ceiling round CS models. Since their introduction in late 2003, the CS models have provided acoustic superiority in an enclosed setting, yet meeting attractive price points. Designed for high-fidelity audio enjoyment, the Contractor Series speakers feature an unobtrusive design that complements an existing ceiling and wall decor seamlessly and attractively.
“These new speaker models represent a great step in sound design for the custom installation industry,” said Ken Hecht, president of Phase Technology. “As manufacturers like Phase Tech continue to introduce innovations, we want to ensure that installers have all the best-performing equipment at the best prices to ensure the greatest satisfaction for their clients.”
Phase Technology will be introducing two fixed _” soft dome tweeter models, the 5.25-inch 2-way CS-5R, and the 6.5-inch 2-way CS-6R.
Also new to market will be three _” pivoting soft dome tweeter models, beginning with the 6.5-inch 2-way CS-6R/PT. Additional models with pivoting housings include the 5.25-inch CS-5DVR, and the 6.5″ CS-6DVR, both of which are 2-way single-point stereo speakers with dual voice-coil woofers.
All Phase Technology speakers bear the signature Absolute Phase crossover technology, creating an exceptionally broad soundstage; and Low Level Linearity, which ensures treble and bass stay clear and dynamically balanced even at background levels.
The fixed tweeter CS models will be available in late January 2006, and the pivoting housing CS models will be available in late March 2006.
