Beale Street Slim LCRs Fit into Shallow Spaces

Beale Street Audio's latest speaker fits into tight spaces and it employs the company's Sonic Vortex technology that aids the product's low frequency reproduction capabilities.

Beale Street's new LCR Pancake loudspeaker measures less than three-inches deep, and it installs vertically or horizontally.

Ever since its market debut during the fall of 2014, the Memphis-based audio manufacturer Beale Street Audio has aggressively developed its product line to meet the diverse needs of installers.

Adding to its product line, the Tennessee company has introduced its latest products: the LCR Pancake series. Available in two models, the Beale Street Audio IPLCR-BB and Xpress line BXPLCR401, both products incorporate the manufacturer's proprietary Sonic Vortex technology that augments low frequency reproduction capabilities.

"Expanding on our recently launched Pancake Series, we are excited to release one of the thinnest LCR speakers on the market," notes Mark Cichowski, executive director of Beale Street Audio. "Based on customers feedback, we've created an LCR that can fit in virtually any wall, even where space is limited, and we've combined that design with Sonic Vortex technology inside to add enhanced performance and sound for an amazing, flexible LCR loudspeaker."

The Beale Street version utilizes a 1-inch Titanium dome tweeter and dual 4-inch ribbed injected polypropylene woofers. The Xpress version features a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter and dual 4-inch ribbed injected polypropylene woofers. Both models are said to deliver frequency responses of 62Hz to 20kHz and provide amp-friendly sensitivity ratings of 92dB.

Explaining some of the applications for the new slim-profile LCR products, Beale Street says that with a mounting depth of less than three inches dealers can place the products into locations that traditional speakers won't fit. Dealers can also mount the speakers horizontally or vertically.

Beale Street points out that sonically, the speakers match the timbre of its other products to enable dealers to mix and match the LCRs with its other in-wall and in-ceiling products.
