Ashly Audio has added new “Plus” models — stylized the AWT+ — to its AW Series of on-wall loudspeakers that offer a power upgrade to make the loudspeakers more accessible for larger rooms such as retail spaces, transportation centers and sports bars.
“When our partners saw how versatile the AW Series On-Wall speaker line was at its price point, one of the requests we heard was if we could increase the output power of our 70- and 100-volt transformers,” says Noel Larson, Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at Ashly Audio. “So we’ve done just that. This will enable even more integration options for our partners using the extremely versatile AW line.”
Specifically, the new AW-5.2T+ is now available at 30, 15, 7.5, and 3.75 watts at 70 volts, and at 60, 30, 15, and 7.5 watts at 100 volts. Meanwhile, the new AW-8.2T+ is available at 60, 30, 15, and 7.5 watts at 70 volts, and at 60, 30, and 15 watts at 100 volts.
A proprietary Directivity Optimized Crossover in the AW line is designed to reduce the off-axis deviation in sound pressure levels to <9 dB in order to provide a wider “sweet spot” for audio and enhance sonic quality. This technology is utilized in the new AW-5.2T+ and AW-8.2T+, which are also are also IP54 rated for use in outdoor applications.
“We remain focused on offering complete solutions that make use of Ashly’s expertise in professional sound,” Larson concludes. “Adding more capabilities to our speaker offerings means our partners can win more business. We want them to have flexible options so they can be competitive with their bids, no matter the project type or size. Enhancing the AW line does exactly that.”
