Nortek Control has announced the next generation of five new SpeakerCraft® Subwoofers, bringing the total to nine models launched this year. Just this past March, four, newly award-winning SpeakerCraft SDSi Subwoofer Series were launched, which include the well-known bass design and technologies incorporated within Sunfire® subwoofers.
The new SpeakerCraft HRSi and XTEQi Subwoofers include a new Sub Station Mobile App and additional 2021 innovations. Technologies include multiple industry firsts, according to Nortek, such as High Back EMF, allowing for efficient cabinet-to-woofer size design.
In addition to the Sunfire subwoofer design and next-generation technology, the flagship model, the SpeakerCraft XTEQi-12 Subwoofer, features dual 12-inch force-canceling active drivers, each powered by a dedicated high-output 1000-watt amplifier, with onboard Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and new Sub Station App setup and control. This Subwoofer reproduces low frequencies down to 17Hz accurately, ideal for playback of music in listening rooms and movie content in home cinemas.
The new HRSi Series of SpeakerCraft Subwoofers offers a step-up to the performance and value of the SDSi Series Subwoofers. This series includes three models (with 8-, 10- or 12-inch fiberglass cone), and features 1000-watt amplifiers, High Back EMF fiberglass drivers and piano black gloss lacquer finish.
Said Richard Pugnier, vice president of Marketing at Nortek Control: “Our new, next generation SpeakerCraft subwoofers—with Sunfire technology inside—consolidate our audio innovation and prowess under one single, globally-renowned brand. With this comprehensive product introduction, we empower integrators to offer the finest in audio and bass technologies under the market leading SpeakerCraft brand, so they can elevate and satisfy every project and client.”
Other features of the all-inclusive line are a wireless audio kit for flexible subwoofer placement, paired with automated setup correction of acoustical room anomalies that are accessed easily in the new SpeakerCraft Sub Station Mobile App. As with all SpeakerCraft brand loudspeakers, the new subs pair with all custom installation control systems, such as sister-brand ELAN® systems.
The award-winning triple driver SDSi Series of floor-standing subwoofers is available in four models, including the SDSi-8, SDSi-10, SDSi-12 and SDSi-15. The SpeakerCraft SDSi Subwoofers are compact, featuring technology, including one active driver paired with dual passive radiators.
