Phase Technology’s New In-Wall Speaker Combines Center with L/R Channels  Print E-mail

Phase Technology has introduced the newest addition to its Custom Installation series of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers – the CI-150. The CI-150 is the first in-wall speaker to combine the functions of a center channel theater speaker and the L/R channel speaker in a single model. The new design allows custom installers to mount a speaker on each side of a home theater video display, yet produce all the sound quality and accuracy of a third, center-channel speaker.

Each CI-150 features two 5-1/4” woofers and a 1” soft dome tweeter that function as the left or right channel, as well as another 5-1/4” woofer and 1” tweeter that performs as one half of the center channel speaker. With another CI-150 operating in tandem, viewers experience center channel sound as produced by the matched pairs of woofers and tweeters, while each speaker’s left and right drivers operate discretely from one another. As an in-wall speaker, the CI-150 has a subtle design that puts the sound in the spotlight and is designed not to take away from the effect of the existing décor.

The CI-150 comes with its own aluminum enclosure, features a 1” MDF baffle, and utilizes Phase Technology’s Positive Clamping system so the speakers perform without any unwanted vibration. As with all of Phase Technology's speakers, it also incorporates the patented Absolute Phase crossover, which produces a balanced soundstage for each listener, regardless of their location in the room. The CI-150 will be available in the second quarter of 2005.
