Residential Systems honors Artison's in-wall subwoofer
August 17, 2007 -- Artison's RCC 300 in-wall subwoofer has been selected by Residential Systems magazine as a RESI Awards 2007 finalist.
August 17, 2007 -- Artison announced that its RCC 300 in-wall subwoofer has been selected as a RESI Awards 2007 finalist, in the in-wall/in-ceiling speaker category. Judged by a panel of independent judges and coordinated by the editors of Residential Systems magazine, the RESI Awards recognize innovative products in the custom installation industry.
According to a press release, winners will be announced during the RESI Awards ceremony at a reception during CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado, on September 5, 2007, in Room 206 of the Colorado Convention Center.
"We are honored to be recognized by the professionals of Residential Systems," comments Cary Christie, president and CEO of Artison. "As a breakout product, the RCC 300 in-wall subwoofer delivers the highest level of performance, while meeting the needs of today's budget-conscious, lifestyle-oriented customer."
The RCC 300 is a compact and more affordable version of Artison's RCC 600. According to the company, the speaker's "Reactance-Canceling Configuration technology" allows the RCC 300 to provide vibration-free, detailed bass from an enclosure that disappears in a customer's environment. In addition, the RCC 300's space requirements are small, allowing it to be mounted directly into a 2 x 4 stud wall. Featuring a bass performance equivalent of a 10-inch floor-standing subwoofer, the RCC 300 is suited for smaller rooms or installations requiring multiple subwoofers within a larger space.
Artison notes that the subwoofer's accompanying amplifier is a slim 1.5 RU, which is easily hidden; however, should it be displayed, the unit's sleek black cabinet and blue backlighting are very attractive, opines the company. Via included digital signal processing software, the speaker allows for a customized set-up, regardless of placement within a room. Sound controls (power, gain, movie mode, music mode) are front panel accessible. Also, the speaker's rear area incorporates advanced features such as automatic room equalization and variable low pass slopes to ensure sonic perfection, regardless of placement, says the company.
Available in August, the RCC 300 retails for $1200, including amplifier.
