Q Acoustics teams with Systemline to provide powered install speaker systems
Q Acoustics is to provide installers and electricians with greater choice and accessibility to high-performance installed sound systems via a new partnership with sister brand Systemline.
The single room audio solution Systemline E50 will be made available in various packages alongside a number of premium speakers from the Q Acoustics Install range. These packages will enable installers and electricians to enhance their own portfolio of products to meet the increasing consumer demand for fully integrated audio solutions throughout the home which are supported by high-performance speakers.
Launched last year, the E50 features a combined touch-sensitive control panel, Bluetooth audio receiver and amplifier that fit within a standard 45mm-deep UK double gang back box. The unit also has a motion detector that allows consumers to control functions including mute, un-mute, track skip and volume level by various hand gestures.
Until now, the E50 has been sold with a pair of regular 6.5” ceiling-mounted speakers. However, the new bundles will see it paired with specialist in-ceiling speakers (Qi 65C) for higher quality sound, in-wall speakers (Qi 65RP) to provide a complete in-wall wireless Hi-Fi experience, and on-wall weatherproof speakers (Qi 65EW) which are ideal for conservatories and decks. All of the speakers made available with the unit derive from the comprehensive Q Acoustics Install range.
Installers will also be able to purchase a wide range of bespoke packages containing the Systemline E100, the sophisticated single room solution that also incorporates an integrated DAB+/FM radio.
Alex Munro, Brand Director at Q Acoustics, said: “In an already competitive market, these packages will provide installers and electricians the opportunity to differentiate from other competitors by offering a very wide choice of high-performance speakers as part of this innovative range of built-in music systems.
“There is a common misconception that if a speaker isn’t housed in a traditional wooden cabinet, it won’t be as good. However, install speakers can provide an equal, and sometimes better, sound quality than standalone Hi-Fi systems. The optimised room positioning and reduced extraneous vibrations allow the consumer to enjoy recorded sound exactly as it was meant to be heard.”
