The KR-S/ST wall-mount speaker is a two-way system that employs a 4-inch low-frequency aluminum-coated polymer driver coupled with a 0.75-inch high-frequency aluminum-dome tweeter, which is able to deliver high-quality music or program material. With a power handling of 50 watts, the unit has a frequency response of 90 to 22k Hz, a sensitivity of 88 dB (2.83V/1m), and includes thermal PTC (6dB cut) protection.

In addition, the KR-S/ST’s enclosure features an industrial design that can be used as part of the facility’s architecture. Available in black, white or silver, the KR-S measures 8.3×4.7×5.9 inches and weighs 3.1 pounds, while the KR-ST measures 10.3×4.7×5.9 inches and weighs 4.2 pounds.
