MartinLogan recently announced two new additions to their architectural line of speakers - the Helos 12 and Helos 22. With updated bezel-less grilles, MartinLogan's Helos series is reborn with cleaner, more discrete aesthetics.
Replacing the Helos 10 and Helos 20, new Helos 12 and Helos 22 in-ceiling speakers feature the same neodymium soft dome tweeters, high-rigidity aluminum cone woofers and proprietary Vojtko crossover topology for which the Helos Series is known. The Helos 12 features a single 1" tweeter mounted on a pivoting tweeter stem that easily aims at the primary listening location. The Helos 22 provides stereo sound with two 0.75" tweeters, designed for use as a single stereo speaker in distributed audio or a wide dispersion home theater surround. Both models feature a 6.5" midrange/bass cone with extended throw driver assembly and thermal protection.
The Helos 12 and Helos 22 crossover employ MartinLogan's proprietary Vojtko topology for low distortion and driver integration.
The Helos 12 and Helos 22 ultra-low profile, paintable micro perforated grilles have no visible bezel. A magnetic system secures grilles easily into place, reducing the risk of warping or damage during installation. A robust, mounting-lock system allows quick, trouble-free installation.
Helos 12 ($299/ea) and Helos 22 ($399/ea) are available now from authorized MartinLogan dealers nationwide.
