BG Radia announced last week the debut of two new planar ribbon surround speakers for in-wall or in-ceiling applications. The SS-202 and the SS-303 are priced at $1000 and $2000 respectively and will ship next month.
The SS-202 and the SS-303 are bipolar speakers designed to be used in-wall or in-ceiling and BG claims that whether listeners are right in front of a speaker or well off-axis, they’ll get the exact same listening experience. The SS-202 is a two-way speaker, featuring four 4” Neodymium woofers set in a concave array, and two Neo3 3” planar ribbon tweeters in a convex array. It is approximately 12” square. The SS-303 is a larger three-way system, suitable for extremely large, high-performance theater systems. It features two 8” dual-gap woofers, the same as used in BG’s flagship speakers, two Neo10 10” planar ribbon midranges in a concave array, and two Neo3 3” planar ribbon tweeters in a convex array. The SS-303 will also fit into a standard-depth framed wall, with or without a back box, and measures 32” x 11-5/8”.
