Following the introduction of its new CM Series Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers at CEDIA 2011, Niles®, The First Name In Custom Installation®, today announced the introduction of the company’s first-ever compact ceiling mount loudspeaker with a mere four-inch footprint, the CM4PR. It is the first small, designer-friendly loudspeaker to deliver audiophile grade performance so speakers can be placed in aesthetically pleasing, unobtrusive areas.
“The introduction of our new designer-friendly compact loudspeaker provides installers with an audiophile grade solution for any location where space or visibility are issues,” said Mike ‘Sparky’ Detmer, president of Niles. “With a depth of less than four inches and a Rear Wave Enclosure that stops sound from bleeding into other rooms, the CM4PR brings superior quality audio to places that were once inaccessible and completes our full line of application-specific CM Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers.”
The CM4PR is a 4" compact ceiling mount loudspeaker was designed with computer optimized Linkwitz Riley crossover components and includes Niles Rear Wave Control that inhibits sound transfer to adjacent rooms. The speaker’s magnetically attached MicroThin™ speaker grilles ensure a clean, virtually invisible appearance that blends with the aesthetics of any room, and can even be painted to match any decor. Optional square grilles provide added design flexibility. The grilles are rust-resistant, permitting loudspeakers to be installed in moisture-prone areas such as saunas, bathrooms and even outdoors under eaves. The Niles Limited Lifetime Warranty provides the ultimate guarantee to both dealers and homeowners, promising that Niles loudspeakers offer the ideal solution for their audio needs.
The CM4PR features an extremely rigid mineral-filled polypropylene cone that reduces breakup, lowers distortion and provides enhanced bass response. The butyl rubber surround damps resonance and provides exceptional durability while the 1” fluid-cooled Teteron® dome tweeter offers ultra wide dispersion and silky-smooth high frequency response.
This compact ceiling mount speaker has a frequency response of 70Hz-21kHz and Niles recommends using an amplifier that provides 25-100 Watts.
Additionally, the loudspeakers have been voiced specifically to handle dynamic content from Blu-ray discs as well as compressed music from sources such as iPods, Pandora and Rhapsody to ensure the best in audiophile performance from virtually any source.
The CM4PR will be showcased January 10–13, 2012 at International CES 2012 at The AVC Group’s Hospitality Suite 2876 in the East Tower of the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel, as well as January 31–February 2, 2012 at ISE Stand 1N73 at The Amsterdam RAI in The Netherlands.
