Pro Audio Technology Broadens Presence In CI Market With Affordable Options For Distributed Audio And Media Rooms

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Huntington Beach, CA (January 28, 2011) – Building on the success of its initial high-output in-wall loudspeakers, Pro Audio Technology (PRO) has expanded its offering of designer-friendly products to include new in-wall, in-ceiling and subwoofer models. Featuring professional components and DSP optimization, the new models bring PRO’s unique high-output performance to a lower price point than previously available.

The SCRS-5iw in-wall loudspeaker joins a ¾-inch compression driver to a PRO-designed elliptical horn for broad dispersion of high frequency energy. Its 5-inch woofer employs a powerful ferrite magnet with an oversized voice-coil, resulting in a high-sensitivity design capable of output levels of 110dB and a dynamic range typically associated with larger floor standing loudspeakers. Measuring only 3 7/8-inch deep, the SCRS-5iw installs easily in a standard 2 x 4 stud bay.

The SCRS-25iw ceiling loudspeaker integrates the drivers of the SCRS-5iw in a dual woofer configuration providing greater sensitivity and higher maximum output level of approximately 115dB. Functionality is enhanced by an angled baffle design – ideal for applications where directing sound toward a specific listening position is desirable. The all-metal construction provides robust build-quality commensurate with the product’s bulletproof performance and includes a back-box that easily fits between 12-inch on-center joists.

To compliment their full-range speakers, PRO is introducing two new subwoofers. The LFC-12im features a highly specialized 12-inch woofer in a shallow enclosure engineered for easy retrofit installation in a traditional 2 x 4 stud bay. A powerful neodymium motor and huge 5-inch voice-coil deliver deep, tuneful bass at output levels belying the LFC-12im’s unobtrusive size (115dB max output). For more demanding applications, PRO’s new LFC-14sm high-impact floor-standing subwoofer employs a proprietary long throw 15-inch driver housed in a compact enclosure. A black textured paint finish is standard. Wood veneer is available at an up-charge.
Each product is engineered for simple retrofit installation, requiring only minutes to install and all in-wall and in-ceiling models come with a bezel-less, paintable metal grille. Like other PRO products, the new loudspeaker models are designed for bi-amp operation using the company’s DSP-driven digital amplifier technology to maximize performance. Passive (single amp) operation will also be available.

Pricing is available through authorized PRO dealers.

Procella Audio and Epic Home Cinema to Build THX Certified Screening Room on CEDIA Expo Floor

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Procella Audio, Epic Home Cinema and THX Combine Forces to Present the First Ever Full-blown THX Certified Screening Room on a Tradeshow Floor

– THX® Certified Screening Room* is located at the Procella Audio booth 4172 on the CEDIA Expo floor

– Designed and constructed to THX specifications by Epic Home Cinema

– Procella’s flagship THX Approved speaker system makes its CEDIA debut in the THX Certified Screening Room

– Epic Home Cinema to showcase their unique advanced acoustical and aesthetic design and build services

– Room features THX Certified and THX Approved products from Runco, Integra, QSC Audio, Meridian and Stewart Filmscreen

Venice, Calif. and Atlanta, Georgia – September 8, 2010 – Procella Audio, manufacturer of high-performance high-output speaker systems for home and professional cinema and music applications, announced today that the Procella Audio booth at the upcoming CEDIA Expo will feature a THX Certified Screening Room* designed and constructed by Epic Home Cinema. Exclusive presentations for attending media are scheduled for 10 AM and 2 PM on Thursday, September 23.

The THX Certified Screening Room, showcasing Procella Audio’s flagship speaker system, is  designed to the same exacting standards as professional facilities. Initial construction began offsite by Epic Home Cinema of Marietta, Georgia. Before the show, the room will be dismantled, moved to the CEDIA Expo floor, and rebuilt by the Epic team. Once complete, the room will be tested by THX to earn the highly coveted THX certification for residential Screening Rooms.

In order to earn THX certification, residential screening rooms must closely mirror the acoustic performance of a full-blown commercial theater or professional studio. The room itself must meet THX standards for room design and construction, including room dimensions, acoustical environment, sound isolation and viewer sight lines. Additionally, all audio and video components must have either THX Approval or THX certification, and the completed room must pass a final evaluation. THX participates in the entire process, from initial design through the  construction phase, and ultimately verifies system performance through a battery of measurements performed onsite by THX engineers.

All audio and video components used in the CEDIA Expo room are either THX Certified for home use or THX Approved for professional studios and cinemas. In addition to Procella, the room will feature products from Stewart Filmscreen, Runco, QSC Audio Products, Meridian and Integra.

The Procella models used in the theater include three active P815s for screen channels, six passive P8 speakers for the surround channels, and two P18 active subwoofers in the baffle wall. Three additional P10 active subwoofers are located in the side and back walls and used as balancing subwoofers. The P815, P8 and P18 have all earned THX Approval for integration into professional facilities, including THX Approved Screening rooms and pm3 rooms (Professional Multichannel Mixing and Monitoring).

“As a manufacturer introducing loudspeakers to the CEDIA audience at Expo, a THX Certified screening room is a dream environment,” said Procella director Chuck Back.  Demonstrating speakers at a trade show, whether in a booth, a so-called sound room or a hotel suite, invariably results in frustration due to poor acoustics and high ambient sound levels. Having a properly designed and built room means that attendees and potential customers will be able to accurately evaluate and fully appreciate the performance of Procella speakers. Having previously worked with Epic Home Cinema and THX, I can say their quality of work is unsurpassed.”

”THX Certification ensures that a screening room reproduces exactly what the director intended. Since we have built a THX-certified home theater, we know the amount of time and effort it takes to accomplish this.  With the stringent standards and specifications of THX, every aspect of a screening room is inspected and evaluated.  Starting with the components, which is exemplified by the incredible performance of Procella Audio and finishing with the optimized acoustical room design, build and calibration, the director’s vision is brought to life.  Many home theater companies may promise a high end theater, but THX Certification is the only way to be sure that the final product meets the quality initially promised to the homeowner. The chance to produce this at the CEDIA Expo, and the opportunity to share this with all the attendees is quite an honor,” stated Epic Home Cinema’s Greg Dawkins.

”We applaud Epic Home Cinema and Procella Audio for taking on the challenge of designing a THX Certified Screening Room at CEDIA Expo,” said Andrew Poulain, of the THX Studio and Cinema team. “Meeting the THX standards for acoustic performance and sound isolation is next to impossible on a tradeshow floor. The result of this collaboration is testament to the design talent of Epic and the performance capabilities of Procella Audio and all of the other THX partners involved.”

Editors and writers unable to attend the media presentations are encouraged to contact Procella to set up private appointments during show hours.

*THX certification pending final testing by THX.

PHC REBRANDS AS PRO – Pro Audio Technology

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Huntington Beach, CA (September 1, 2010) – Professional Home Cinema (PHC) has announced a change in product branding to Pro Audio Technology. Widely recognized as a premium provider of advanced DSP-driven loudspeaker and amplifier systems for high performance home cinema installations, Professional Home Cinema is applying its professional based engineering expertise to a broader range of residential audio installation applications.

Larry Reagan, vice president of PRO says, “The Pro Audio Technology name conveys a more powerful message to the market—that we’re committed to bringing professional technologies and performance standards not only to the theater, but to distributed audio and other installation applications as well. The stronger, more encompassing name will support our sales reps, international distributors, and dealers as they present PRO products to their customers.”

The company’s unique approach to product engineering has produced a full range of systems boasting commercial cinema output levels, unrestricted dynamics, and amplifier power levels capable of providing true-to-life performance. Pro Audio Technology employs sophisticated digital signal processing to achieve high level frequency response shaping, steep 8th-order crossover slopes, time alignment, and advanced boundary effect correction.

All Pro Audio Technology speakers use high-sensitivity horn loaded compression drivers and professional grade woofers. Amplifiers employ high powered class-D technology to bi-amp (or even quad-amp) each loudspeaker with system power ranging from 2500 to as much as 25,000 watts. The result is dynamic and articulate sound that simply cannot be achieved with conventional consumer loudspeakers and amplifiers.

“The brand name Pro Audio Technology accurately reflects the company’s pledge to deliver professional standards in the areas of product performance, reliability, and ease of installation and operation to all aspects of the home environment” said Paul Hales, President of Professional Home Cinema.

A new PRO logo, website (www.proaudiotechnology.com) and online support materials will feature the new name. The old website will redirect to the new one as soon as it is up and running.
