Aldous showing new FortÈ system, celebrating HAI distribution deal29 January 2010
Distributor Aldous Systems will show FortÈ’s ABD-W5 A-BUS/DIRECT WALL active + passive pair of speakers at ISE 2010. The product – which arrives with remote keypad and wall cradle – will be exhibited on the Aldous stand (1EF49) at next week’s exhibition.
A further addition to the A-BUS multi-room audio family, the new 5.25in A-BUS/DIRECT WALL digitally amplified loudspeaker product offers full weather and UV resistance – making it suitable for indoor and outdoor installation – along with a high-powered emitter (38k and 56kHz) in the (supplied) ABR-43 learning remote keypad, dimensions of 155 x 240 x 190mm, an IR window on the grille for full A-BUS controls and IR pass through, a fixed 3m Cat5 cable and RJ-45 input, and a 5m 14-gauge speaker cable.
Aldous Systems’ Jason Aldous told IE Residential: “ISE is an important event to us as it gives us a pan-European coverage. As the European importer of product for the FortÈ A-BUS range of products it is important to us that we can communicate the availability of new products to our wide customer base. ISE gives us a vehicle to achieve this.”

Adding Aldous to the team is an important part of continued growth into 2010.”
