SA42-4

3" Grille Small Aperture® Speaker

 

 

Tags:

The SA42-4 is the most compact and affordable of James Loudspeaker’s in-wall/in-ceiling Small Aperture Series of architectural loudspeakers, designed to sonically outperform conventional in-wall/in-ceiling speakers from a tiny, aesthetically pleasing 3-inch grille. (Now available with 3-inch Microperf grille option.) The SA42-4 delivers a refined, full-range musical experience including high-output levels, defined bass response and wide dispersion into the listening area—all while meeting the most stringent aesthetic demands of discerning homeowners and interior designers. Capable of fitting into unusually small stud bays or other tight locations, the SA42-4 is ideal for residential and commercial applications where appearance and performance are paramount. Though compact, the SA42-4 will effortlessly fill any space with music through an astonishingly small, fully customizable 3-inch aperture. The 2-way SA42-4 utilizes proprietary aluminum drivers including a 4-inch woofer and a 2-inch midrange/tweeter nestled within an aircraft-grade aluminum enclosure. Designed for clientele seeking a premium performance solution that dramatically outperforms traditional in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, the made in USA SA42-4 delivers true high-fidelity, superb off-axis performance, unmatched durability and nearly invisible aesthetic perfection.

For ordering:

SA42-4-ENC is the subwoofer section/preconstruction.

SA42-4-MOD is the mid/high frequency module.

Professional Audio Video Engineering Uses James Loudspeaker products in Nashville Penthouse

Professional Audio Video Engineering (PAVE) in Nashville works with James Loudspeaker to outfit a luxury penthouse with 20 Small Aperture speakers, subwoofer and a 1.5" tall custom SoundBar.

"Our relationship with James Loudspeaker is an integral part of our business," says Stafford. "They don't know the word 'no.' At times I have actually told them that I wish they could train others."

"I can't tell you how many custom products I have done in the last 10 or 15 years with James," says Stafford. "Every time I throw something at them, they throw it back, and it outperforms what we really wanted. If other manufacturers could follow that pattern, I would be very happy."
