WASP Audio was founded by a custom installer to service the growing wireless audio market and the company’s line of products which includes the LINK-Mount amplified Wall bracket.

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.
