SA54-4-SUB

4" Grille Small Aperture® Ultra-Slim Subwoofer

Tags:

The James Loudspeaker SA54-4-SUB is an in-wall subwoofer designed to be concealed from view. Like all speakers in the SA series, a small opening in the wall or ceiling is the only visible portion of the speaker giving this product series its name: Small Aperture®. The 3.4 inch depth allows the speaker to be placed within 2x4 inch studded walls and concealed by drywall, while the 4.125 inch square grille is the only visible portion of the speaker. The SA54-4-SUB is built using aircraft-grade aluminum and has a quarter-inch thick back plate to ensure maximum durability and limit rearward sound transmission. The speaker comes with bracket mounts to secure the frame to wall studs and ensure that it is firmly locked in place. Dynamat (a viscous adhesive deadening material) is used to dampen the aluminum enclosure.

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."
