James Loudspeaker Launches Two Compact Boundary Speakers
James Loudspeaker is launching two smaller versions of their W-Series wedge boundary speakers, giving a few more "decor-friendly" options for fleshing out the sonics of any room. Dubbed the 42Qw and 43Qw, James Loudspeaker packed a ton of different performance options including multi-zone audio, height channels for immersive theater systems (Atmos, Auro3D, and DTS:X) as well as a few outdoor audio applications.
“Though our larger boundary speakers have been very popular, we received feedback from both residential and commercial integrators that a more compact version of the W-Series speakers would be useful,” reported James Loudspeaker CEO Mark Schafle. “Our goal is to provide the highest performing entertainment solutions that deliver superior sound with minimal visible intrusion into the space.”
The 42Qw and 43Qw employ a new version of the high-excursion 4-inch woofer originally used in the 42AT landscape loudspeaker, designed using a Santoprene surround and aluminum cone. The 42Qw combines a single 4-inch woofer with James Loudspeaker’s legendary aluminum Quad Tweeter array, providing superior dispersion and dynamic capabilities versus conventional speakers. The 43Qw utilizes two of the 4-inch drivers with the Quad Tweeter for additional output capability.
Both W-Series models come with a wall/ceiling bracket featuring a unique mounting system that is ultra-secure but easy for custom integrators to work with and achieve a gapless fit every time. Like all James Loudspeaker products, both standard and custom colors are available.
The James Loudspeaker 42Qw and 43Qw are available now through authorized James Loudspeaker integrators. MSRP pricing is $900USD (42Qw) and $1100USD (43Qw) each.
