Proficient Audio today announced the release of two in-wall LCR speaker models, the IW650 and IW625. These new speakers improve on the bass response and power handling of the company’s IW550 and IW525 speakers, making them a perfect choice for larger media rooms and dedicated home theaters.
Until now, dealers who have been installing in-wall LCR speakers for flat panel jobs have been limited to using dual 5 ¼” woofer LCR’s. The new Proficient dual 6 ½” in-wall LCR speakers can be installed horizontally between 16″ on-center wall studs. This will allow installers to design a 3-speaker LCR array that provides higher SPL in the home theater. Plus, according to the company, bass response is improved due to a 40% increase in surface area of the woofer cones.
The large woofers of the IW650 and IW625 feature two 6 1/2-inch Kevlar-cone woofers and a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. The IW625 uses two 6 1/2-inch graphite-cone woofers with a 1-inch soft dome tweeter. The tweeter is positioned between and in close proximity to the woofers, and can be pivoted to direct the high frequencies as desired.
