AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands — At ISE 2015, HARMAN’s JBL Professional is expanding on its already wide range of AE Series high-quality, high-fidelity installation loudspeaker systems with eight new low-cost models.
The new AE Series models include six 2-way, full-range systems and two subwoofer models. The AC895, 8" 2-way and AC195, 10" 2-way loudspeakers utilize a 90° x 50° rotatable waveguide. There are two new 12" 2-way full-range systems, the AC266 and AC299, while two new 15" 2-way full-range systems, the AC566 and AC599, utilize two new waveguides with coverage patterns consisting of 60° x 60° and 90° x 90°. These full-range systems include 14 M10 suspension points and four additional M10 mounting points for use when a wall mount bracket is required.
Accompanying the six full-range systems are two new subwoofers: the AC115S high-output single 15" subwoofer, and the AC118S high-output single 18" subwoofer. The subwoofer models include 12 M10 suspension points. All models are available in both black and white textured coatings and are intended for indoor use. The line will include U-brackets and a wall mount bracket accessory for all full-range models.
