Phase Tech Debuts New In-wall Speakers with Patented Bass Extending Technology

By |


Phase-Tech-CI130.jpgPhase Technology has introduced two new in-wall speakers, the CI120 and CI130, that incorporate the company's newly patented Bass Extending Technology. The CI120 is a three-way speaker that uses a one-inch soft dome tweeter, a 1.5-inch soft dome midrange driver, and two 5.25-inch RPF Flat-Piston Fiberglass and Kevlar Composite Cone woofers. The step-up CI130 (shown here) moves up to 6.5-inch woofers. Contact your local Phase Technology dealer for pricing info.

Phase Technology has been awarded a new patent (#15265773) on its new Bass Extending Technology for architectural speakers. Phase Tech's two new in-wall models, the CI120 and CI130 incorporate the patented technology.

The revolutionary new technology extends bass lower than an acoustic suspension or bass reflex in-wall or in-ceiling speaker in the same size enclosure. In-wall and in-ceiling speakers generally have rear enclosures that are too small to produce low bass. With this technology advancement, a speaker with the same size rear enclosure will have bass output that extends up to one octave lower than a comparable speaker.

The Bass Extending technology provides two solutions; it incorporates a back box to reduce sound transmission to an adjacent room and lowers the resonance of the speaker. The upshot is the best of both worlds, with a cleaner listening experience and a significant boost in bass output.

"This is a real-world problem solving advancement for achieving deeper bass while reducing sound transmission through the rear wall of the room." says Ken Hecht, MSE Audio Vice President of R&D. "The patent bass extending hybrid enclosure design produces much deeper bass compared to in-wall or in-ceiling speakers using conventional enclosures.
