Salamander Debuts In-Cabinet Loudspeaker Solutions at the CEDIA Expo (13/9/2013)
CEDIA Expo 2013
Salamander Designs, Ltd., a leader in premium quality audio/video entertainment furniture, theater/lounge seating and accessories for over 20 years has announced the unveiling of an integrated loudspeaker accessory engineered to fit any of the Synergy and Chameleon cabinets. Co-developed by Leon Speakers, Salamander’s new integrated solution elegantly conceals a high performance loudspeaker behind attractive cloth grills within the A/V cabinet, eliminating the need for bulky in-room speakers and unsightly wiring. MSRP’s start at $999 and product availability is September, 2013.
In addition to being custom tailored for each cabinet, the Salamander integrated speaker solutions also come equipped with sturdy brackets that facilitate up-and-down rotation of the loudspeaker to optimize performance for any room or seating solution. Single-wide cabinet bays accommodate a center channel speaker, while double and triple-wide bays offer an LCR (left-center-right) speaker. “We wanted to deliver a solution that looks good and sounds good,” explained Salamander president Sal Carrabba. “It seemed completely natural for us to work with Leon on this project—they are a market leader in customizable speakers and a highly respected innovative domestic brand like Salamander,” Carrabba added.
Salamander pioneered the Design-Your-Own concept, enabling dealers to tailor A/V furniture via Salamander’s newly updated and powerful web tools, making it easy and efficient to tailor the ideal furniture solution for each customer. The integrated loudspeaker option is compatible with all 1998 and forward Synergy and Chameleon models, giving dealers a valuable profit opportunity for both new and existing customers. The Chameleon lineup includes six brand new styles in 25 configurations—150 new Salamander cabinets available in popular contemporary finishes such as high gloss white and rich textured wood fronts.
