Wasp Audio Mounting Bracket Works with Nearly Any Speaker
The LINK-Mount wireless amplified wall bracket from Wasp Audio can receive signals from the company's companion Universal Wireless Transmitter from as far away as 60 feet, and the wall bracket also includes a 50-watt Class D monoblock amplifier.
If the first few weeks are any indication of what type of market electronics professionals will find for wireless audio solutions, 2013 could potentially be a big year. One of the emerging category’s earliest adopters is the Central Massachusetts company Wasp Audio.
Wasp Audio’s LINK-Mount wireless amplified wall bracket is available exclusively to custom installers and it comes with subwoofer out options to provide installers a retrofittable solution that can be paired with many of today’s on-wall and bookshelf loudspeakers. The LINK-Mount is a single-gang size product that incorporates a ball-and-socket assembly that allows installers to angle a mounted speaker into the best possible listening position.
Wasp explains the LINK-Mount can be used for 2.1 distributed audio installations or as part of a traditional home theater system. Designed to work in tandem with the company’s Universal Wireless Transmitter, the LINK-Mount can set up at distances as far as 60 feet and once the product is installed installers can easily hook up the bracket’s 50-watt Class D monoblock amplifier to power a mounted speaker. The Mass.-based company adds the bracket is cast from a magnesium alloy to ensure its strength and durability, and its selectable three-band 2.4GHz, 5.2GHz and 5.8GHz frequency transmission capabilities allows installers to find uncluttered bandwidth spectrum to reliably send and receive uncompressed audio signals.
