Through a partnership with JBL, Leviton introduces five new in-ceiling and in-wall speakers to enhance the Leviton Architectural Edition product line and appeal to the professional installer.
The “Powered by JBL” speakers “bring studio quality sound from the professionals to your home or business,” says James Shurte, product manager for Leviton Energy Management, Controls & Automation. “Expertly designed, Leviton Architectural Edition Powered by JBL speakers offer both enhanced aesthetics and performance that will leave you wondering how such spectacular sound seems to come out of nowhere.”
Leviton also introduced five new home theater speakers in November 2016, including a Bluetooth Soundbar with wireless sub-woofer.
Design for everyone
With the product line’s whole-room seamless audio and visual design, these new recessed in-wall and in-ceiling speakers were engineered with professional installers in mind. The new speakers include superior installation brackets that utilize a specialty mechanical grip to minimize vibration regardless of installation format.
Optional rough-in kits and fire-rated back boxes are available for pre-construction installation in new homes and businesses creating a result that blends into any environment’s wall or ceiling architecture. Leviton Architectural Edition Powered by JBL speakers also pair perfectly with the Leviton Hi-Fi 2 distributed audio system to provide unmatchable whole house audio.
The new speakers also feature paintable and nearly invisible zero-bezel magnetic grilles that seamlessly blend into any wall or ceiling architecture in a residence or commercial setting. This is equally pleasing to audiophiles, interior designers, and homeowners alike for integration into any configuration or audiovisual setup.
With proven acoustic superiority through rigorous testing and real-world evaluation, signature JBL loudspeaker performance provides room filling sound with clean and powerful highs, according to the company. Long-throw woofers with rubber surrounds also provide high output with low distortion.
