Designed as a budget friendly sound reinforcement solution for the 200 – 400 seat House of Worship, smaller meeting / presentation facilities, and similar spaces, the new Grund Audio Design ACX Series encompasses five models and related accessories that address these application environments handily.
Manufactured in the USA—with all components and materials sourced from US-based suppliers—the ACX Series loudspeakers utilize MDF (medium-density fiberboard) enclosures and operate at 150 watts RMS @ 8 Ohms, which enables the use of lower cost transducers, thus making these loudspeakers an exceptional value for their intended applications. All models incorporate two speakOn® input connectors. The five models include:
• ACX-2: 2-way; 1-inch HF driver, 12-inch LF transducer w/ a 90° x 40° rotatable horn

Frank Grund, President of Grund Audio Design, commented on the company’s new ACX Series product line. “The ACX Series product group is an ideal solution for small, budget-conscious organizations seeking to contain costs by handling much of their own setups or installation. By gearing the systems toward smaller capacity audiences, we are able to deliver an effective sound reinforcement solution that delivers exceptional value. I’m confident these loudspeakers will be well received by all who audition them.”
