DMi redesigns discrete speaker ranges
The redesigned VSi and HSi series, debuted at ISE 09, introduces numerous design innovations, improved audio performance, versatility and ease of installation. An increased number of models includes more three-way designs, ultra-compact 'lighting can' style designs, and humidity resistant models for outdoor and wet environments.
The new series comprise more than 25 new in-wall and in-ceiling designs. Design innovations include a dramatic 70 per cent reduction in the visible bezel, providing for improved flush to surface mounting. Magnetically attaching grilles greatly improve ease of installation and servicing.
The new HSi in-ceiling range includes the HSi H460T2 high humidity, weather resistant model, a 2-way design ideal for outdoor use, or in bathrooms, sauna or swimming pool areas.
Two new miniature in-ceiling models - the HSi 430 and HSi 435 - are designed to resemble small lighting can fixtures, and feature a round and square bezel form respectively. Both models are two-way configurations, with 3 ½ inch woofers and ¾ inch tweeters, and both feature the new reduced visible bezel and magnetic grilles.
The matching HSi S6W2 dual 6-inch subwoofer is a bandpass design which also physically matches small lighting fixtures; sound is outputted via dual bass tubes, connected to frames the same size as the HSi 430 and HSi 435.
