Barcelona-based Amate Audio has launched the first in a new family of premium installation/integrator loudspeaker cabinets designed to provide compact high performance solutions in the form of the G7.
Designed for use in retail, hospitality, recreation, enterprise and culture application environments, the G7 is a two-way system within an EN54-24 certifiable, hexagonal-form, reinforced ABS plastic enclosure. It comes with a high-performance 6.5” carbon-fibre woofer and 1” titanium dome, neodymium tweeter, aluminium grille and hardware, outdoor ready construction and recessed connector panel with ergonomic protective cover, plus integrated U-bracket mounts for the supplied wall mount. Recessed screw sockets provide compatibility with Amate Audio’s SP-6N wall mount for dual-axis orientation.
The G7’s internal architecture includes a custom designed HF phase plug and flare, as well as a bass-reflex port extending the LF response of the genuine carbon-fibre coned woofer. This 6.5” transducer provides an output and LF response equivalent to a normal 8” driver. A second order crossover network ensures that response across the full frequency range is smooth.
A significant design feature is that both standard low impedance and 100V line applications are possible with the same model. Simply unscrewing the rear connector plate and replacing it with a T-G7 transformer plate enables the G7 for 100V line applications with switchable 5 W / 10 W / 20 W / 40 W power settings.
Amate Audio head of sales, Jordi Amate, said: “We did not want to come to this product sector just with a similar look and equivalently spec’d performance. With the G7 we have something else, something more; something that ultimately allows installers to offer a better customer experience. For sure, this is the highest quality to price ratio yet achieved with a plastic cabinet.”
The G7 is scheduled for release in June and will be available in white, black and titanium colour schemes.
