Council Bluffs, IA (October 10, 2012)—Grund Audio Design has debuted its new VIP Series loudspeakers, which features four models of speakers designed for various environments.
The new VIP series loudspeakers consist of the VIP-06, VIP-08, VIP-10 and VIP-12 models. The loudspeakers are passive designs (requiring external amplification) with high power capabilities and utilize injection molded enclosures. As the smallest enclosure of the family, the VIP-06 is a 2-way design that utilizes a 1-inch HF dome tweeter coupled with 6.5-inch cone LF transducer. The VIP-06 provides a 68 Hz–20 kHz frequency range for natural sounding program reproduction.
The Grund Audio Design VIP-08, VIP-10, and VIP-12 loudspeakers are all 3-way designs, aiming for a natural-sounding midrange for speech intelligibility as well as vocal performance reproduction. The midrange transducer in each of the three models features a 5-inch cone with a 1-inch coil in a quasi-horn loaded design. Similarly, these three models feature 1-inch HF dome tweeters. For low frequency reproduction, the VIP-08 uses an 8-inch cone transducer, the VIP-10 employs a 10-inch cone transducer, and the VIP-12 incorporates a 12-inch cone transducer. The frequency range for the VIP-08, VIP-10, and VIP-12 is, respectively, 45 Hz - 18 kHz, 40 Hz - 18 kHz, and 38 Hz - 18 kHz.
Additionally, Grund Audio Design has an optionally available wall mount bracket. To protect the transducer complement, the VIP series incorporates steel, powder-coated grilles. The VIP-06, VIP-08, and VIP-10 loudspeakers are available in both black and white while the VIP-12 is available in black. Further, the name badges on the front of the enclosures rotate for vertical or horizontal positioning. All models are available in mirror imaged pairs for superior stereo reproduction.
