Grund Audio Design has introduced the new STP-8/STP-5S, designed as a loudspeaker pair consisting of a pole-mounted ‘“top box” and a subwoofer for portable applications.
The STP-8 loudspeaker utilizes an 8-inch low frequency (LF) transducer that is mated with a 1-inch high frequency (HF) compression driver to form a compact, 2-way design providing strong speech intelligibility and music reproduction characteristics. It is rated at 300 watts (program) at 8 Ohms.
The enclosure includes a pole cup for convenient mounting and incorporates a pair of handles to ensure easy transport.
With the ability to support 500 watts (program) at 8 Ohms, the STP-5S subwoofer utilizes a horn-loaded 15-inch transducer in a compact enclosure that measures 22.75-inches by 14-inches by 26.75-inches (H x W x D). With its four casters, the enclosure can easily be moved by one person, and like the STP-8, it incorporates a pair of handles.
Together, the two units produce frequencies that range from 50 Hz – 18 kHz.
The system, which includes two of each loudspeaker models plus two poles for top box mounting will be available at a reduced price compared to the pricing for individual loudspeakers.
Both enclosures are manufactured in the United States and incorporate multi-layer pine wood that is solidly braced for cabinet rigidity. The exteriors are covered with an easy care, durable black carpet finish.
Frank Grund, president of Grund Audio Design, states, “Our new STP-8/STP-5S portable sound system delivers rich, full-sounding audio reproduction in a surprisingly compact form factor that makes it ideal for both travelling musicians and DJs. The system is equally well suited for use in churches and A/V conference facilities—thanks to its ability to move easily and setup quickly. This is a great sounding, good-looking, and highly portable setup. I genuinely believe this new sound system will be well received by all who audition it.”
The loudspeakers will be available individually or as a system. MSRP pricing is as follows:
• STP-8: $299 MSRP (individual)
• STP-5S: $799 MSRP (individual)
• Pricing for the STP-8 / STP-5S loudspeaker system (two of each model plus mounting poles) will be at a reduced price compared to individual units. MSRP Separately = $2,446; MSRP Package = $2,199
