AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 11 February 2016 – Adding to its high-performance speaker line, SpeakerCraft, the premier audio brand from Core Brands, today debuted its all-new AIM LCR Series In-Wall Speakers to the EMEA market at ISE 2016. Both the AIM LCR5 FIVE and AIM LCR3 FIVE create a spectacular soundstage for music or film with the ability to reproduce every nuance of a performance. The debut was made at Core Brands Stand 1-N53 at the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam.
“The new SpeakerCraft AIM LCR FIVE Series is our new top-of-the-line in-wall series, designed to complement every high-end home theater,” explained Matt Dever, Core Brands Product Manager, Audio. “We developed these two new models with top performance in mind, adding Kevlar woofers and an aluminum-magnesium tweeter to AIM’s patented pivoting baffle to create a more realistic and enveloping sound stage that focuses the sound directly into the listening area.”
Superior response across the frequency spectrum, greater clarity, and richer, tighter bass define the AIM LCR FIVE Series, making it the perfect design for use with flat panel video monitors. The AIM LCR5 Five is a 2-way, in-wall LCR (left, center, right) speaker with dual 5¼” Kevlar woofers and 1” tweeter mounted on a pivoting speaker baffle. The speaker offers two 5¼” woofers phase plugs for easy use and an independently pivoting 1” aluminum-magnesium dome tweeter. The AIM LCR5 FIVE features bass and treble EQ switches and delivers a 48Hz – 20kHz frequency response, with power handling of 100 Watts and adjustable impedance of 8/6 Ohm. Each speaker offers a sensitivity rate of 91dB 1W/1m.
The AIM LCR3 Five also offers a 2-way, in-wall LCR (left, center, right) speaker but with compact dual 3” Kevlar woofers and a ¾” aluminum-magnesium tweeter mounted on the pivoting speaker baffle. The AIM LCR3 FIVE delivers a 60Hz – 20kHz frequency response and includes a 2-position treble EQ switch and 8 Ohm compatibility. Its power handling is 60 Watts and has a sensitivity rate of 86dB 1W/1m.
“Both the AIM LCR5 Five and AIM LCR3 Five provide the sleek flangeless appearance that designers and their customers appreciate,” continued Dever, “and both are timbre-matched to all FIVE Series Speakers—including AIM Series 2 in-ceiling speakers—for the ultimate surround sound theater experience.”
The AIM LCR FIVE Series is now shipping to authorized SpeakerCraft dealers. For more information, visit Core Brands at ISE 2016, Stand 1-N53. For a hi-res image, click here.
