We’re Stereo Exchange, located in New York City. We've been in business since the 1970s and are a major high-end dealer. We have all the current top brands on display in our huge showroom.
Let’s start at the Beginning:
Speakercraft is a very high-end brand of in-wall speakers, and they are sold by the very best dealers in the US.
Their products are made with high quality parts and are extremely good value.
They have several series of speakers, but the AIM line is quite special.
Behind the paintable, mesh grill lies a speaker of very high quality with a trick up its sleeve.
You can aim the speaker! It pivots, and the tweeters pivot, also.
Now you can place the speaker anywhere and AIM the sound toward the center of the room.
After that, you can aim the tweeters themselves for an even more directed sound.
THIS MODEL IS EVEN MORE SPECIAL...IT'S A STEREO SPEAKER...TWO SPEAKERS IN ONE!
ALL YOU NEED IS THIS ONE SINGLE SPEAKER TO GET STEREO SOUND.
The bass is shared by a single dual-coil woofer, and the mids and highs come from two built-in individual tweeters for great stereo effect.
THAT MAKES IT PERFECT FOR SMALLER ROOMS WHERE PLACING TWO SPEAKERS MAY BE A PROBLEM.
The speaker pivots behind the grill, allowing you to bring the focus point inward, and prevent excess reflections off the side walls.
After that, you can pivot each individual tweeter to get the best stereo effect.
How cool is that !?!
Additionally, there are switches on the front of the speaker, behind the grill, to boost or cut the highs and lows to compensate for your room acoustics.
All this would mean little if the speakers did not sound good, though!
Speakercraft really threw ALL their technology into these.
The speaker connectors are large and solid, and make a great connection with your wires. They are gold plated. They insure your speakers receive all the power you amp sends to them.
There are TWO SETS of them, on this speaker, since this is a Stereo speaker.
The midrange / woofer cone is made of Aluminum, like those in great $5,000 speakers.
The tweeter is also made out of aluminum for clear highs.
This has several benefits.
The light weight of the speaker cones/domes makes them very sensitive, meaning the speaker can run off of as little as 5 Watts of power. The sensitivity is 92dB, which is quite high. It can play loud with even fairly low power amplifiers and receivers.
The RIGIDITY of the tweeter dome material means that the cone will not easily flex, for lower distortion and smoother highs.
This speaker has a frequency response of 40-20,000Hz which is astoundingly good.
It can be used with amplifiers of up to 100 Watts per channel.
It was in our warehouse, factory sealed.
I did open the box to take a few photos.
They have built-in mounting hardware…nothing else is needed.
Their overall size is 11 7/6 inches. It is 5 3/4 inches deep to fit in ceilings.
You will want to make your cutout about 9 3/4 inches round. A template is included to make this easy.
Since this speaker has been in the warehouse for a while, we want to move it out with a low Reserve to insure a quick sale.
This speaker retails for $450.00.
We are setting the RESERVE at only $118.00 for this single STEREO speaker.
That makes it a SUPER-BARGAIN at even WELL over the reserve.
Whoever gets this speaker is going to be a very happy camper!
I'm not sure if Speakercraft speakers sold online qualify for the factory warranty, but we guarantee it will not be DOA.
Please give it a good home.
