On Friday, Wisdom Audio announced that it will introduce an entirely new range of loudspeaker models dedicated to hidden installations behind projection screens and fabric walls. The Sage Cinema Series will be on display at this year’s CEDIA Expo in Dallas.
“The Sage Series remains the most flexible and comprehensive range of loudspeakers we have ever created, with many in-wall and on-wall options intended for visible applications,” Luc Guillaume, Chief Business Officer for Wisdom Audio, said in a statement. “Adding the new Sage Cinema Series to the mix brings the advantages of the Sage Series to completely hidden applications in high-performance theaters and media rooms. It’s Modular Line Source concept makes it a true custom solution for any size room, while our Variable Directivity Point Sources will allow our dealers to deliver unparalleled clarity and intelligibility for every seat, and true compatibility with 3D audio formats.”
The Sage Cinema Series will consist of five models, according to Wisdom Audio: three Line Sources and two Point Sources. The biamplified Line Sources are modular, Widsom Audio explained, which allows for 4’, 6’, and 8’ tall line sources to be modeled to address the needs of the theater design. Each module also features the Sage 24-inch Planar Magnetic Driver and a trio of long linear excursion, high-output woofers.

Both models include a passive network allowing each speaker to be driven by a single channel of amplification or biamplified. The Point 2 PMD module can be rotated 90 degrees and tilted 22.5 degrees, providing any seat in the room the benefits of Wisdom Audio’s signature clarity. The Point 3 is the most powerful point source Wisdom has ever created, and its PMD module can be rotated 90 degrees.
“Bringing an entire new range to market in seven months was a significant challenge after we just hired our new Principal Audio Designer Engineer, George Short,” Jerry Hanna, VP of product development, said in the statement. “We are thrilled to present these fantastic solutions to our dealers worldwide and looking forward to demonstrating their sonic superiority at the show.”
