Russound, a provider of multiroom audio, has announced an overhaul of its speaker lineups with the introduction of their new Acclaim line of architectural speakers.
"Russound speakers have always been an excellent choice for multiroom audio," said Erik Wiederholtz, Acoustics Engineer for Russound. "But with the introduction of the Acclaim line, we've taken our collective experience to an entirely new level. Russound now has an offering that brings together all the features and sizes that installers want, and all the performance and sound quality that their customers ask for."
The Acclaim 7 and Acclaim 5 lineups mark the debut of the new Russound speaker series. Both have been designed to provide installers with tailored in-wall, in-ceiling, and LCR solutions for almost any room application, with 18 models in the Acclaim 7 lineup and 13 in the Acclaim 5.
The Acclaim 7 lineup is distinguished by its display of Russound acoustic technologies, including the company's patented "Iso-Mount" isolation system. The lineup also emphasizes a new 7-inch design, which offers more bass and greater efficiency than conventional 6.5-inch designs. Ten new models will be available in this size, with options that include driver materials such as Kevlar, titanium, and silk, and die-cast aluminum baskets and bridges. Other new designs in the lineup include new LCR speakers and an 8-inch, 3-way. All Acclaim 7 in-ceiling models feature Russound's patented "Twist and Tilt" technology, pivoting tweeters, and many offer 3-level adjustments for bass and treble, for customized speaker output in any acoustic environment.
The Acclaim 5 series presents installers with speaker options at the 5.25", 6.5" and 8" in-ceiling and in-wall designs.
The Russound Acclaim 7 series will become available in October 2008, with the Acclaim 5 speakers following in November.
