James Loudspeaker, designer and manufacturer of décor-friendly entertainment products for residential and commercial applications, has redesigned the mounting system for its QXC series of architectural speakers, making it easier for integrators to secure them in place.
The new QXC loudspeakers utilise a lightweight aluminum frame with semi-circular clamps that attach to the ceiling or wall surface using premium-grade stainless steel hardware. Once the frame has been secured with speaker mounting screws in place, the QXC speaker can be simply rotated into position using the provided keyhole shaped receptacles in the speaker’s mounting flange.
This methodology eliminates the need for the installer, often perched precariously on a ladder, from having to balance the speaker while simultaneously holding tools and hardware, says the company. “Overall, the process is greatly simplified, reducing installation time and increasing profitability.”
Adding yet another innovation to simplify installation, James Loudspeaker engineers have developed a new grille mounting system using proprietary tri-blended elastomer encased Neodymium magnets.The elastomer eliminates any concern of corrosion even in marine environments, and these powerful magnets are affixed to both the speaker and the grille for a secure, seamless fit.
QXC aluminum grilles are available in both round and square form factors in standard and custom colors. James Loudspeaker QXC Series speakers (available in 6.5- and 8-inch models) feature aluminum cone woofers with Santoprene rubber surrounds and quad aluminum tweeter arrays that provide greater dispersion and imaging even in rooms with speakers mounted in less than perfect locations. All QXC mounting innovations are available now.
