Audio One Launches In-Wall Speakers to Fill the Price Gap  Print E-mail
Home Theater News In-wall Loudspeakers News

"I decided to make my own speakers," says Audio One founder David Frangioni,"because I just couldn't find a distributed audio in-wall or in-ceiling speakers that sounded great in the mid-price range. There were numerous choices at the low and high points of the market, but not in the middle."

The new Frangioni Systems Speakers were designed to fill that gap and provide a great audio experience at a middle of the road price.    And since Frangioni himself is a professional musician, he created these to excel at producing music.

The in-wall versions of the speakers feature an aluminum frame along with a one inch sheet of medium density fiberboard.  They've got a silk dome tweeter and an anodized aluminum bass unit to reduce distortion and provide tighter bass.  They run $950 each.

Aluminum surrounds the in-ceiling versions as well, but it's bonded to a 1/2 inch closed cell foam damping layer.  They also sport a silk dome tweeter and a broad dispersion that helps to spread sound evenly.  They're also nearly flush with the ceiling, creating a minimal shadow.  You can pick up the in-ceiling speakers at $1,200 a pair.
