Savant Micro Aperture Powered Architectural Speakers Driven by PoE
Savant's new active Micro Aperture Powered Architectural Speakers incorporate built-in amplifiers and PoE technologies.
Savant, a company that develops a range of home technology systems including solutions for control, music, and A/V distribution, has introduced its Micro Aperture Powered Architectural Speakers.
Each Micro Aperture Powered Architectural Speaker incorporates a built-in amplifier, which Savant claims help reduce installation times for integrators.
According to Savant, the use of an active, built-in amplifier also helps to maintain sound quality because the speaker and amp keep the audio signal in the digital domain throughout the entire signal chain.
Savant Architectural Speakers Available in a Choice 3 Models
Designed for a number of audio system installation scenarios, the new Savant speaker line provides integrators with a choice of three models.
The in-ceiling speakers also incorporate the company's Balanced Mode Radiator that helps the speakers produce more sound per watt of amplifier power into homeowners' listening spaces.
Savant says each of the self-powered speakers can power up to three passive satellite speakers, and the active speaker will self-regulate the power based on the PoE type of switch or injector employed with the system.
Because each speaker is individually controlled and connected to the network, integrators or homeowners can easily switch room configurations, notes Savant.
"For example, the dining room speakers can play music during dinner, then become rear surround channels for a theater system at the touch of a button," says Savant.
The company emphasizes that a key design element of the speakers are they are home-decor friendly.
The Micro Aperture Architectural Speakers mount flush to ceilings and are available with paintable round or square 4-inch grilles that complement the look of Savant/USAI Lighting's recessed fixture family of products.
In addition, the speakers incorporate Savant's INSTALL EZE tool-less installation system to help integrators install the speakers quickly in new or retrofit existing home environments.
