Loudspeaker designer and owner of audio manufacturer Pro Audio Technology (PRO), Paul Hales, has announced the launch of Theory Audio Design (Theory).
The company, which will produce loudspeakers and amplified loudspeaker controllers, will make its debut at CEDIA Expo 2018 in San Diego
“PRO continues to thrive and is a leading brand in elite home theatre and distributed audio systems around the world,” said company founder Paul Hales. “With Theory, my goal was to bring the thrilling sound for which my products are known to a broader audience, and that is exactly what we’ve done. The performance and design of the Theory products are extraordinary. I cannot wait to show off these ground-breaking products at CEDIA 2018.”
Theory loudspeaker models consist of three in-wall and four slender on-wall models, featuring dual 5in, 6in and 8in woofers. For tight, deep bass, Theory offers two subwoofer models sporting 12in and 15in high-power drivers. Three soundbars round out the loudspeaker line designed to pair perfectly with today’s 65in, 75in and 85in flat panel TVs. Two Amplified Loudspeaker Controllers (ALC) provide the power and brains behind the beauty. Listeners will recognise Hales’ signature sound quality immediately, providing thrilling dynamics and room-shaking bass without sacrificing décor or precious floor space.
Theory loudspeakers are constructed from custom aluminium extrusions that are only 3.6in in depth, and available in black or white, Theory loudspeakers feature clean lines, rounded edges, machined aluminium accents, and configurable decorative trim to suit any décor. Finish options for the trim pieces include carbon fibre, white, grey, or black gloss, natural and black aluminium, brushed stainless steel, and matte pewter.
Flexible by design, Theory on-wall and soundbar models offer installers quick and easy installation on any surface, with a T-slot mount system that accommodates a variety of mounting bracket styles, including Z-Clips, yokes and ball mounts that can be positioned anywhere along the length of the speaker to align with architectural structural elements.
The first seven models of Theory loudspeakers and amplified loudspeaker controllers will ship in Q1 2019, with additional models introduced throughout the year.
