On-Q/Legrand Launches evoQ Center Channel Speakers
Harrisburg, PA, July 15, 2008 - On-Q/Legrand, the leader in home systems, announced today the launch of its new evoQ Center Channel Speakers for home theaters. The bookshelf design of the new speakers allows dealers to install a center channel speaker in homes that cannot accommodate a built-in center speaker. By combining this flexible design with the advanced acoustical engineering of the evoQ 5000 and 7000 Series, the new products round out the company's offering of high-quality home theater speakers.
Many homes have architectural and interior design features that prohibit a built-in home theater from being properly installed. Angled ceilings, fireplaces, plasma televisions, and entertainment centers make it difficult for installers to create a home theater with an accurately placed center channel speaker. With the evoQ Center Channel Speakers, an installer can design a home theater setup with a center channel speaker sitting in an entertainment center, on a mantle, or even on a shelf. The low-profile speakers blend in well with any d�cor, like the company's in-wall and in-ceiling home theater speakers.
"Because the center channel is responsible for producing over 60 percent of a movie's soundtrack, it is a critical component of a well-designed home theater system," said Christine Filowiak, audio and video product manager. "By integrating the engineering of the 5000 and 7000 Series into a bookshelf format, the Center Channel Speakers offer a flexible, high-performance solution that enhances any home entertainment experience."
Additional features include:
- horizontal or vertical positioning for placement above or below display
- matte finish which matches evoQ subwoofers
- floating grille design
- magnetically shielded drivers to prevent video interference
- silk dome tweeters and dual polypropylene woofers on the 5000 Series
- aluminum dome tweeters and dual glass fiber woofers on the 7000 Series
The evoQ Center Channel Speakers will be available to ship in the third quarter of 2008.
