James Loudspeaker has announced the introduction of the W-Series loudspeakers designed for boundary applications, such as integration into a 90-degree corner where walls and ceilings converge. The wedge-shaped form factor is designed for the latest immersive 3D audio technologies (Atmos, Auro3D and DTS:X) as well as other applications and can be used in both indoor and outdoor environments.
The initial launch of the W-Series includes two models; the 52QW (single 5.25-inch woofer/quad tweeter) and the 53QW (dual 5.25-inch woofers/quad tweeter). Each speaker features high-excursion woofers matched to the ultra-high-performance quad-array aluminum dome tweeter that has become a signature of the James Loudspeaker brand.
The 52QW and 53QW are constructed entirely of aircraft-grade aluminum and have an aluminum perforated grille. A unique mounting system makes W-Series speakers easy to install using an innovative corner bracket that suspends the speaker securely via setscrews. Standard colors are Gloss White and Satin Black, however custom colors are available. Specially equipped versions of each model are available for outdoor/marine applications. The 52QW MSRP is $1,000 (each) and 53QW MSRP is $1,300 (each).
