FIT for flexibility with Current Audio25 March 2010
The company has introduced the FastLoc loudspeaker grille to its range of FIT (Focused Image Technology) in-ceiling pivoting woofer/tweeter loudspeakers. The "almost invisible" Fastloc loudspeaker grille snaps into place easily and allows installers and end-users to adjust woofers and tweeters more quickly – while ensuring that they stay protected.
There are four 6.5in models in Current Audio’s in-ceiling range featuring FIT, each boasting a woofer with 50∫ of adjustability and a ‘diffraction-less’ pivoting tweeter. In addition, custom installers can benefit from the inclusion of the ‘installation handle’, counter-sunk mounting screws, and a 3DP locking mechanism that allows the installer to lock the woofer baffle in place after finding the desired setting.
The top-of-the-line FIT654 includes a woven carbon fibre cone (with butyl rubber surround), three-position EQ switches, gold press terminals, and weatherised, perforated aluminium grilles. The pivoting, ceramic-coated Ferrofluid-cooled tweeter, says Current Audio, allows for "deeper sound penetration and a greater focus to the sweet spot – providing superior, more natural sound". The FIT654 can handle 5-150W with a frequency response of 35Hz-21kHz.
Other models in the range differ in terms of cone and tweeter composition, power and frequency response: FIT652 (aluminium cone, aluminium Ferrofluid-cooled tweeter dome, 5-125W, 38Hz-20kHz); FIT651 (injection-moulded carbon fibre cone, aluminium Ferrofluid-cooled dome, 5-125W, 40Hz-20kHz); FIT650 (MetaPlex Composite Cone, silk Ferrofluid-cooled dome, 5-100W, 42Hz-20kHz).
"Current Audio offers the best-available in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeaker solutions – for consumers and custom installers," said Jonathan Pengilley from distributor Habitech. "The FIT range of in-ceiling speakers is cutting-edge, with FastLoc the icing on a very, very clever cake, which delivers in spades. End users need to demand Current Audio FIT in-ceiling speakers from their supplier – accept no compromise."
