Previewed at NAMM in January and officially unveiled at ISE last week was X4i, a 4-inch, highly weatherized coaxial loudspeaker for installation applications.
Weighing less than 1 kilogram (2.2 pounds), X4i is the smallest loudspeaker the company has ever manufactured. Intended for integration into conventional construction materials, X4i is slated for use in performing arts centers or houses of worship, where it can reportedly match the sonic signature of main L-Acoustics systems such as ARCS and Kiva.

Some use in hostile environments is possible as well, as the weather-resistant X4i offers an IP55 rating and becomes watertight with a rear sealing plate. X4i is expected to ship in March.
