Extron Electronics recently announced the availability of the SM 28T SpeedMount
Surface Mount Speaker, a two-way speaker with superior sound quality and a
patent pending, concealed wall mounting system. It features an 8″ (20.3 cm) woofer
with dual tuned ports that extends low frequency response down to 59 Hz, and a
1.1″ (2.8 cm) silk dome tweeter that reaches up to 22 kHz without the brittle sound
associated with metallic domes. This powerful speaker has an 8 ohm direct power
rating of 90 watts continuous pink noise, and 180 watts continuous program
capacity. It includes a six-position power tap selector, accessible through the grille,
for 70 volt and 100 volt modes up to 64 watts. The SM 28T delivers accurate voice
and detailed music reproduction on and off-axis through a unique baffle placement
and crossover design that ensures smooth and even power response. The Extron
exclusive mounting system is designed to accommodate division-of-labor
installations and save costs. The SM 28T is ideally suited for classrooms, conference
rooms, exercise facilities, retail spaces, auditoriums, spaces with raised or exposed
ceilings, and other environments where high performance surface mount speakers
are desired.

“The SM 28T combines a superior quality speaker with the fast installation
capabilities of SpeedMount to support high impedance applications,” says Casey
Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Extron. “Our exclusive mounting
system allows a large number of SM 28T speakers to be installed quickly and
efficiently, so that multiple sound systems can be completed within a short
installation window.”

To meet a variety of installation needs, the extremely flexible mounting system
includes a 0° mounting plate and a 10° mounting adapter. The 0° mounting plate
provides the electrical connections and allows the SM 28T to be oriented vertically
or horizontally, flush with the wall. When the versatile 10° mounting adapter is
added to the mounting plate, the SM 28T can be positioned with a 10° tilt
downward, upward, left, or right.

The SM 28T saves time and installation costs for AV system contractors working
with low-voltage contractors in a division-of-labor installation. During rough-in, a
low-voltage contractor installs the mounting system on the wall and terminates the
speaker cable to the mount’s integrated wiring contacts. Later, the AV system
contractor completes the installation by sliding the SM 28T onto the mount.

The SM 28T is sold in pairs and carries a 5 year parts and labor warranty. It is
available in a black or white finish and includes a 0° mounting plate and a 10°
mounting adapter. Also available is an optional yoke mount kit for the SM 28T. It
allows for vertical or horizontal speaker mounting on a wall, or on a ceiling, and
provides 180° of pivot in 10° detented steps.
