US loudspeaker manufacturer Ashly Audio has confirmed that its two latest speaker lines are now shipping worldwide.
The new AW and IS Series speakers are designed for use in a wide range of applications, from retail and hospitality to house of worship and education.
“We introduced the speakers earlier this year as a response to the feedback we received from our integration partners,” said Noel Larson, vice president of marketing and business development at Ashly Audio. “They were seeking a more complete and integrated solution, which included speakers. That feedback has proven to be extremely valuable as we now see businesses – from retail and restaurants, to houses of worship, to schools – seeking ways to effectively and affordably expand their audio offerings in an effort to safely reopen their doors.
“Adding speakers is going to be critical as we seek for ways to more effectively serve individuals – be it in a business or a school – while maintaining safe social distancing in the months to come,” Larson continued. “We are now shipping key products in our total solution that will add audio to more locations, for organisations of all type and size.”
Ashly Audio’s AW Series speakers provide on-wall speaker solutions for installations where intelligibility of both speech and music are crucial to the customer experience. Designed by Ashly engineers to take full advantage of Protēa and AquaControl DSP, the AW series with a unique DOC crossover reduces the off-axis deviation in sound pressure levels to <9db. This provides a wider sweet spot for audio and allows for robust bass, crisp treble and an accurate midrange.
Meanwhile, Ashly Audio’s IS column speakers offer flexibility for integrators by operating at eight or 32 Ohms, making them suitable for simple applications or allowing larger numbers to be used in distributed installations – up to 32 IS Column speakers can be run off a single Ashly PEMA or CA four channel amplifier. The IS Series delivers vertical dispersion and consistent sound levels front-to-back in virtually any type of venue.
The IS Series can be combined with Ashly amps and processors that incorporate Protēa or AquaControl DSP, achieving wider frequency range with improved audio intelligibility at any scale. The IS Series’ has been built to fit in multiple locations, including next to flat-screens in conference rooms or houses of worship. The SP-12.1P subwoofer provides an extended low end and offers a portable ‘system-on-a-stick’ configuration solution.
