“After introducing the OWI self-amplified in-ceiling speakers to the market our customers began asking us when we were going to develop a self-amplified surface mounted line,” said Joe Martinez, Vice President of OWI Inc. “In response, we developed the AMP1SGB 25 Watt Amplifier to be used in combination with any of OWI’s 8 ohm speakers,” Martinez added.
“Having the amplifier fit into a double gang box eliminates the need for large and expensive equipment racks,” Martinez continued. “And with the amplifier located right at the speaker, signal loss is reduced and music quality improves. “
Each AMP1SGB 25 Watt Wall Amplifier can effectively drive four speakers. One line will support up to 20 amplifiers allowing for simple, cost effective installation and easy expansion or revision of existing systems. Because the AMP1SGB amplifier fits into a double gang box, the need for large and expensive equipment racks is eliminated. The units are fast and easy to install in the field and come complete with a 12v AC power supply.
OWI has a 30-year history of consistently bringing innovative products to the audio market. The company offers a full line of high-end speaker products including indoor/outdoor speakers, self-amplified ceiling, in-wall and trumpet speakers, pendant speakers, and weatherized speakers. OWI weatherproof speakers and L.A. Rocker line of rock-shaped speakers are in use around the world at major theme parks, hotels, casinos, golf courses and retail centers.
SRP for the AMP1SGB is $220 with SRP on the 5”, 6” and 8” “P” Series Amp/Speaker Combos ranging from $310 to $810 depending on speaker size and quantity.
