Klipsch Designer Series Architectural Speakers Reduce Installation Time By Up To 75%

INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (October 31, 2017) — Klipsch®, a tech-driven audio company and wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (NADAQ: VOXX), today announces the debut of its Designer Series Architectural speakers with exclusive tool-free technology that is designed to simplify and reduce installation time by up to 75%. The Klipsch Designer series of speakers is a high-quality value line of architectural speakers that deliver the legendary sound for which Klipsch is known.

The exclusive, patent-pending Sky Hook™ by Swarm technology is a tool-free, fully automatic, self-adjusting installation system that allows integrators to simply cut a hole, attach wires, and insert the speaker into the hole. Sky Hook automatically engages the doglegs, adapting to the surface thickness with a preset clamping force that virtually eliminates the possibility of breaking the dog leg or cracking drywall, while locking in place for an ultra-secure, ultra-fast installation. Removals are just as easy with a quarter turn of a screwdriver.

“Incorporating exclusive Sky Hook technology into our architectural speakers allows us to offer a faster, more efficient installation method, while providing the ultimate sound experience to end users. This line of speakers is available exclusively through our trusted integrator network to ensure professional installation, system optimization, and ease of use for consumers,” said Michael Buratto, product manager, component audio solutions at Klipsch Group, Inc.

The Klipsch Designer Series Architectural speaker line is made up of five in-ceiling (DS-160C, DS-160CDT, DS-180CDT, DS-160CSM, DS-180CSM) and two in-wall speakers (DS-160W, DS-250W-LCR). The “CDT” models use proprietary Controlled Dispersion Technology, allowing the tweeter and woofer can be aimed up to 15° in any direction, creating maximum installation and placement flexibility. Klipsch proprietary Tractrix® Horn technology also delivers controlled directivity of high frequencies for more dynamic, detailed sound with higher efficiency. Flat, paintable, magnetic grilles are bezel-free and designed to fit any interior design.
