Powersoft and Crestron Announce Partnership on Vector Loudspeaker Series

Powersoft announced that its Duecanali and Quattrocanali amplifier platforms are now available as an option to power Crestron’s new Vector Performance loudspeaker series. Crestron’s Vector Performance loudspeakers, which launched at InfoComm 2017, are for large performance spaces such as auditoriums, lecture halls and divisible rooms.

Both Duecanali and Quattrocanali are one rack unit, two and four-channel amplifiers — designed for small to medium size applications where the channel count is limited and the need for a flexible product to work with Hi-Z and Lo-Z systems is a must. The series are available in a variety of power configurations, all of which boasting a serious punch, making them the perfect solutions for venues who are looking for crisp sound, full control and sustained output volume.

Vector Performance loudspeakers are available with a 6″ coaxial up to 12″ and 15″ models, and dual 18″ subwoofers are also available for high-impact systems. Each of these loudspeakers, which are now available with either Powersoft Duecanali or Quattrocanali amplification options, feature an innovative coaxial transducer design that delivers optimal sound, clarity and intelligibility for speech reinforcement and media reproduction in enterprise environments.

The transducer in Vector Performance loudspeakers represents a revolutionary advancement in coaxial speaker design. Its large titanium diaphragm compression driver allows for smoother transition to the woofer providing better high/low alignment, smoother beamwidth performance and increased sound pressure levels without distortion. The compact high-frequency horn design reduces shadowing to produce incredibly clear and dynamic sound for both voice and music. Co-located high and low drivers results in less crossover interaction within the coverage pattern and provides ultra-smooth response.
