James Loudspeaker has introduced two new outdoor speakers. Both models are omnidirectional in design and feature marine-grade powder-coated aluminum enclosures. The Omni48AT uses four coaxially mounted 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeters over proprietary high-excursion four-inch woofers, while the Omni89AT (shown here) adds a down-firing eight-inch subwoofer. The Omni models come in 15 standard finishes (custom options are also available), and both models are available in four-ohm or 70-volt versions. Prices are listed below.
From James Loudspeaker
James Loudspeaker has introduced the Omni48AT landscape satellite speaker and the Omni89AT satellite/subwoofer package. Both are made from marine-grade powder coated aluminum enclosures and feature proprietary purpose-built drivers for lasting performance.
The James Loudspeaker Omni48AT is unique in its ability to deliver 360 degrees of refined sound from a single location. Utilizing four coaxially mounted 0.75-inch aluminum dome tweeters over proprietary high-excursion 4-inch woofers mated to a sophisticated crossover network, these innovative outdoor speakers will deliver a balanced and accurate musical presentation at impressive output levels. The 4-inch woofers feature an aluminum cone and Santoprene surround to withstand harsh outdoor environments.
The Omni89AT is an Omni48AT combined with a matching down-firing 8-inch subwoofer also housed in an aluminum enclosure. The Omni89AT delivers full range omnidirectional sound from an above ground solution that is also visually elegant and unobtrusive. Typical applications include rocky landscape areas where traditional satellite/in-ground subwoofers cannot be installed, or a large area of open seating where full omnidirectional coverage is beneficial. The Omni89AT allows a single enclosure to do the same job as four 42AT All-Terrain satellite speakers with a subwoofer, delivering legendary James Loudspeaker performance in a more compact single-chassis above-ground unit.
Both Omni Series models are available in 15 standard finishes, as well as unlimited custom colors and coatings to allow seamless integration into all outdoor environments. Additionally, both models are available in 4-ohm or 70-volt versions to accommodate any system architecture. 70-volt models use high-quality, low-loss, toroidal transformers that deliver uncompromised sound quality. The system can also be custom ordered in a bi-amplified configuration, allowing more control over bass performance. James Loudspeakers Omni Series speakers are made in Napa, CA, and are available now.
