NEW IN-WALL SPEAKER WITH PATENTED SWIFTLOCK™ TOOL-LESS MOUNTING SYSTEM DEBUTS AT CEDIA 2019
Innovative mounting combined with superb sound make a winning combination to bring the best of Russound’s architectural speaker technology to the in-wall market
Newmarket, NH – September 12, 2019 – Only months after launching the IC-Series of architectural in-ceiling speakers at the ISE Expo in Amsterdam, Russound has now further expanded its loudspeaker assortment with the new IW-620 enhanced performance in-wall loudspeaker.
Russound CEO Charlie Porritt was justly proud to announce the company’s latest innovation. “Russound dealers have been loud and clear in their praise of our SwiftLock mounting system with its easy, quick installation without the need for a drill or even a screwdriver. Getting jobs done faster means more profitable jobs and the ability to get started on new jobs more quickly. SwiftLock has really been a game changer for Russound’s dealers and installers.” The tool-less installation system from Russound, known as SwiftLock greatly reduces installation time by using a patented spring-tensioned rotation and locking dog system. Speakers with SwiftLock install with the simple press of three easy-to-reach buttons.
When launching this new addition to its speaker assortment, Russound gathered feedback from its installer-base to focus on the key features that were most-requested.
According to Porritt, “Our customers were almost unanimous in agreement that features that can help them save time at the job site, translate into more money in their pockets. Combine the simplicity of installation with the clean and modern look of our new NanoPerf™ magnetic grilles and the great sound of our 20-Series in-ceiling speakers, and we know we’ve got a product that will be successful for any audio professional to recommend to their customers.”
Featuring a 6.5” injection-molded polypropylene woofer and a 1” silk dome tweeter, the IW-620 was acoustically matched to Russound’s other 20-series loudspeakers, the IC620 and the IC-820 so that they can be used interchangeably in an installation and guarantee a similar tonal balance throughout the home.
With high-end features not normally found at this price point such as an inverted butyl rubber surround, an integrated woofer basket/frame, and premium crossover components that result in a very efficient 90db sensitivity and an impressive frequency response of 47Hz-20kHz.
