Savant has announced new architectural loudspeaker and soundbar solutions. Savant’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) self-powered Micro Aperture architectural speakers include three in-ceiling versions available, each using Balanced Mode Radiator that delivers more sound per watt. There is a self-powered PoE speaker, a companion PoE satellite speaker, as well as a passive (4-ohm) speaker for interface with traditional audio systems.
Each self-powered PoE speaker can run up to three PoE satellite speakers giving integrators an 8-speaker capacity based on a single pair of powered PoE speakers. Because each unit is individually controlled and connected to the network, the user can switch room configurations. For example, the dining room speakers can play music during dinner, then become the rear channels for a theater system at the touch of a button.
The Savant IP Soundbar is a powered sound bar using AVB networking. Each Savant IP Soundbar features six channels and 200 watts of amplification controlled by sophisticated DSP all built into an extruded aluminum chassis. Custom grilles allow it to match TV dimensions.
Savant new line is here.
