James Loudspeaker Updates Grille Aesthetics of its Small Aperture Architectural Loudspeakers

The newly announced micro-perforated grille from James Loudspeaker is designed to help its Small Aperture Architectural more easily blend into a range of home interiors.


Updating the visual design of its Small Aperture Architectural Loudspeakers, James Loudspeaker has introduced a new micro-perforated grille to the product line. 

James Loudspeaker says that its new micro-perforated grille utilizes smaller perforations and it provides integrators with a less obtrusive loudspeaker solution to appeal to the aesthetic requirements of homeowners, interior designers and architects.  

“The objective of this new grille design was to create a solution that is even more appealing to the architects, designers, homeowners who work with our network of integrators,” comments Keith Parke, national sales director at James Loudspeaker.

“Our Small Aperture lineup has been adopted as the definitive architectural speaker solution, and we are always striving to make even subtle improvements that bring added value to our customers.”

The Minden, Nev.-based audio company also points out the micro-perforated grille now comes standard on all of its new Small Aperture Architectural Loudspeaker products.

Made in the U.S.A. Small Aperture Architectural Speakers

Like its other products, the Small Aperture Architectural line of loudspeakers are made in the United States, and the product line features the company's proprietary aluminum drivers. 

The company offers two- and three-way versions of the Small Aperture Architectural product line, and the products also employ aircraft-grade aluminum enclosures to minimize resonances. 

The products are also engineered to withstand the demands of environmental conditions such as humidity.

Moreover, from a performance standpoint, James emphasizes the Small Aperture Architectural line of speakers are engineered to deliver wide sound stages and full-range sound to eliminate the need for subwoofers in many situations. 

James Loudspeaker adds that integrators can install the Small Aperture Architectural in a range of systems that include home theater and multiroom audio systems because of the products' engineered high levels of off-axis performance.
