From James Loudspeaker
James Loudspeaker has announced the introduction of the W-Series loudspeakers designed for specialized boundary applications, such as integration into a 90-degree corner where walls and ceilings converge. The visually unobtrusive wedge-shaped form factor is ideal for the latest immersive 3D audio technologies (Atmos, Auro3D and DTS:X), as well as other applications, and can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments.
The initial launch of the W-Series includes two models; the 52QW (single 5.25-inch woofer/quad tweeter) and the 53QW (dual 5.25-inch woofers/quad tweeter). Each speaker features proprietary high-excursion woofers matched to the ultra-high-performance quad-array aluminum dome tweeter that has become a signature of the James Loudspeaker brand. These compact and efficient speaker solutions offer a silky smooth response across a broad range of frequencies, providing residential and commercial integrators with a premium loudspeaker solution engineered specifically for ceiling and wall junctions that deliver superb sound yet minimal visible intrusion into any space.
The 52QW and 53QW are constructed entirely of aircraft-grade aluminum for strength, sonic performance and durability, featuring an aluminum perforated grille to provide years of trouble-free use. A unique mounting system makes W-Series speakers easy to install using an innovative corner bracket that suspends the speaker securely via setscrews. Standard colors are Gloss White and Satin Black; however, custom colors are available to suit any décor. Specially equipped versions of each model are available for outdoor/marine applications. James Loudspeaker W-Series loudspeakers are available now only through authorized integrators. The 52QW MSRP is $1,000 (each) and 53QW MSRP is $1,300 (each).
James Loudspeaker architectural loudspeakers are engineered and manufactured in Napa, CA USA.
