James Loudspeaker has introduced two smaller versions of its W-Series wedge form factor boundary speakers designed for integration where walls and ceilings converge. The unobtrusive 42Qw and 43Qw offer multi-zone audio, height channels for theater systems (Atmos, Auro3D and DTS:X) and outdoor audio applications as well. Both new models are constructed of aircraft grade aluminum for strength, sonic performance and durability. It also has an aluminum perforated grille.
The 42Qw and 43Qw employ a new version of the 4-inch woofer originally used in the 42AT landscape loudspeaker, designed using a Santoprene surround and aluminum cone. The 42Qw combines a single 4-inch woofer with James Loudspeaker’s aluminum Quad Tweeter array, providing what James Loudspeakers says is superior dispersion and dynamic capabilities verses conventional speakers. The 43Qw utilizes two of the 4-inch drivers with the Quad Tweeter for additional output capability.
Both W-Series models come with a wall/ceiling bracket featuring a unique mounting system that is ultra-secure but easy for custom integrators to work with and achieve a gapless fit. Like all James Loudspeaker products, both standard and custom colors are available.
The James Loudspeaker 42Qw and 43Qw are available now through authorized James Loudspeaker integrators. List pricing is $900 USD (42Qw) and $1100 USD (43Qw) each and here are the details.
