An evolution of Architectural Series, the ‘Discreet Opening System’ from Sonance is designed to bring a new level of sonic performance, installation flexibility and minimal visual impact to the flush and trim-less speaker category.
Appealing to the architect and designer market, the Discreet Opening System features a 4in (102mm) round or square grille that exactly matches the footprint of trim-less, flush down-lights to achieve continuous sight lines.
The system utilises four AS38RS two-way speakers combined with either one or two BPS6 band-pass subwoofers to deliver high-quality clarity, detail and bass response.
The satellites and subwoofer adopt the same grille size and shape for aesthetic consistency, while the configuration has been made to deliver greater audio consistency and superior tonality throughout the space.
The innovative form-factor and mounting platform provides greater positioning flexibility, allowing more accurate alignment and spacing with down-lights, and other ceiling fixtures.
For higher ceiling installations or for clients seeking very high volume levels, the AS68RS offers the same flush and trim-less aesthetic in a 6.5in two-way speaker.
The independently pivoting woofer and tweeter allow the speakers to achieve a match with light fittings while sound is directed for optimum performance and coverage.
For those seeking the ultimate sonic performance, the BPS8 band-pass subwoofer can be combined with four AS68RS speakers to achieve the SPL of a large speaker system, but having a perfect flush-fit with the ceiling.
The AS38RS and AS68RS feature a ceramic dome tweeter and high-excursion carbon fibre and Rohacell laminated woofer for natural accurate sound and minimal distortion across all listening levels. The BPS6 and BPS8 utilise a high excursion, dual-voice coil, carbon fibre and Rohacell laminated driver for deep, dynamic bass augmentation.
The TRUFIG-inspired mounting platform has been created to deliver a high-quality, repeatable installation process in drywall, plaster, wood and other solid surfaces, while the magnetic precision grille levelling system ensures a simple and flush grille installation.
