Extron Electronics, a world leading manufacturer of all kinds of audio visual solutions, have recently announced that they are expanding their line of pendant speakers. The expansion to the popular line comes in the form of a new, larger two-way pendant loudspeaker named the Extron SF 26PT.
Designed for high performance program or music playback in high-ceiling and open-ceiling applications, the new SF 26PT takes inspiration from modern pendant lighting in terms of its appearance. That means that it boasts an architecturally clean, patent pending design that complements the aesthetic of contemporary interiors, at least according to Extron.
Available in black or white, the SF 26PT can also be painted in order to suit décor of any colour and style. What’s more, to ensure a clean and secure final installation, the new pendant speaker also includes and Extron-exclusive PendantConnect speaker cable, which combines the speaker wires and steel support cables within a single outer jacket.
The UL listed SF 26PT offers both direct 8 ohm and 70/100 volt operation and is voiced similarly to the Extron SF 26CT for consistency and installation flexibility in mixed ceiling environments.
Given all of the features mentioned above, it comes as little surprise that Extron’s vice president of global sales and marketing, Casey Hall, is enthusiastic about his company’s newest pendant speaker:
‘When we introduced our first pendant loudspeaker, the SF 3PT, the response from AV system designers was overwhelmingly positive, but we soon realized that we would also need a larger version…The SF 26PT meets the need head-on with a two-way design based around a 6.5″ driver that maintains the unobtrusive, patent pending design language established by the SF 3PT.’
