DETAILED PHOTOS AND SPECIFICATIONS OF ALL THE ABOVE SPEAKERS ARE IN
THE PRODUCT LISTINGS. CLICK EACH SPEAKER'S PHOTO TO SEE ITS LISTING.
BELOW IS QUICK SUMMARY OF ABOVE SPEAKERS:
(1) MODEL-61 COMPACT speaker: For
WHOLEHOUSE AUDIO where you want multiple speakers placed throughout the home, we
recommend using the "Compact" speaker. It features a 6.5" woofer, but after
installed has approximately an 8 inch total footprint. It is almost the exact
size of large recessed lighting fixtures. It sounds great and it blends in well
with any decor. We recommend using 2 or 4 of these in each room. As these are
8-ohms you can easily place 2 on each channel. This speaker may also be
used for 5.1 and 7.1 home theater systems, INCLUDING THE CENTER CHANNEL.
(2) MODEL-81 HI-QUALITY speaker: For a larger
version of the compact speaker, use our "Hi Quality" speaker. This speaker
features an 8-inch woofer and after installed has approximately an 11-inch
footprint on the ceiling. This speaker, other than the size difference, looks
exactly the same as the compact speaker, so you can mix and match them in the
same area if need be. This speaker is great for very high ceilings and 5.1 and
7.1 home theater systems, INCLUDING THE CENTER CHANNEL.
(3) MODEL-80 TOP-OF-THE-LINE speaker: For the
highest possible power rating and the best sound possible, use the "Top Of The
Line" speaker. It also features an 8-inch woofer and is approximately 11-inches
after installed. It is exactly the same size as the above hi-quality speaker,
but looks totally different. It features a double size tweeter, extra heavy
magnet, crossover board, and more. This speaker is best suited in large areas or
where extreme loud volumes or intense bass will be utilized (such as a family
room where the kids plug their iPods in and crank up the music). The speaker can
handle a load of power while maintaining excellent sound. This speaker may also
be used for 5.1 and 7.1 home theater systems, INCLUDING THE CENTER CHANNEL.
(4) MODEL-62 WATERPROOF /
DUAL VOICE-COIL speaker: For applications where the
speaker may come in contact with direct weather such as on uncovered decks,
OR for applications that require two speakers built into one speaker to maintain
stereo out of one speaker (dual voice coils), this is best speaker. This
speaker features a 6.5" weather-treated woofer, and has an 8-inch footprint
after installed -- it it the exaxt same size as the COMPACT speaker we sell, but
it features TWO TWEETERS, each aimed at angles, one for each stereo
channel. NOTE: If you are looking for an outdoor speaker, this speaker is
only necessary for UNCOVERED AREAS. If you have a covered porch or patio,
the compact and hi-quality speakers will do fine for your needs (avoid the top
of the line speaker outside).
