Cincinnati, OH, United States, 2008/06/24 - The match of the breakthrough Velodyne SC-IW In-wall sub with Amina’s invisible Loudspeakers creates a truly minimal visible impact system with remarkable sound quality.
Velodyne’s UK distributor, Redline, and Amina Technologies Ltd today announced a marketing partnership to promote an ultra discrete total speaker solution for the Home and Professional Audio Visual Market in the UK. The match of the breakthrough SC-IW In-wall sub with Amina’s invisible Loudspeakers creates a truly minimal visible impact system with remarkable sound quality.
“We first started using Velodyne subs because of their compact size and quality,” comments Richard Newlove, Managing Director of Amina Technologies, “ And with the introduction of the SC-IW the fit got even better. It truly offers a discrete in-wall solution that perfectly complements our Invisible Plaster In-wall AIW range of speakers. As we continue our success with Velodyne here in the UK, we hope to have a similar marketing partnership in North America in the near future.”
While design conscious clients, architects and interior designers have been discovering the benefits of Amina invisible Plaster In-wall speakers for several years, in both the Domestic and Commercial applications, there has always been the issue of a discrete sub when additional bass is required . The SC-IW is Velodyne’s answer.
The SC-IW (In-Wall) is the first in-wall to fit flush in a 2x4 inch studded wall and deliver reference quality performance. The patent-pending SC-IW driver fires vertically in the wall for maximum throw and minimal vibration to reproduce the most demanding home theater and music with authority, accuracy and low distortion. The SC-IW, with a unique 2-piece cabinet design, is easy to install whether it's for new construction or retrofit.
As it says the Amina Plaster In-wall speakers are actually plastered into the wall or ceiling providing fantastic natural sounds with zero visual foot-print. Mount them within a plasterboard opening in a wall or ceiling, skim over with 1-2 mm plaster skim and the surfaces are ready for decoration. The process is just as simple for solid walls.
The Velodyne In-wall unit is totally unique in design and construction and is a perfect partner for Amina applications where additional bass is required for program material. The Velodyne SC-1250, rack-mountable amplifier drives the Velodyne SC Series, and features 3000 watts dynamic / 1250 watts RMS power and a built-in Automatic EQ system for optimum bass performance. The SC-1250 can drive up to two SC-IW subs using standard speaker wire, has a RS 232 bi-directional port for use with control systems such as Crestron and AMX. It provides four selectable pre-sets for different program material –action/adventure movies/movies/music and games designed to help customers gain the maximum versatility from their AV systems.
There are three options in the Amina SoundUnseen™ Plaster-In-Wall loudspeakers range the AIW1 20 watt per speaker, the AIW3 40 watt per speaker and the AIW5 80 watt speakers making a solution for every location, from bedrooms and bathrooms (no need to worry about moisture) to busy bars and large rooms. All Amina AIW speakers have the same physical footprint: 450mm x 345mm x 40mm (17 3/4" x 13 1/2" x 1 5/8") so they will fit between the studs in standard drywall applications.
Martin Morecroft, Director of Redline who exclusively distribute the Velodyne brand in the UK added: “We are very excited about working with Amina. Over the years we have built up Velodyne to be one of the leading brands of Subwoofers in the UK and the tie-up between our new SC-IW In-wall sub and the Amina speakers will be a formidable partnership in creating unobtrusive quality sound for Music and Multi-media applications”.
