AV equipment manufacturer Work Pro Audio has expanded its popular SoundNut range of pendant speakers for installed sound applications.
The SoundNut originally debuted at ISE 2018 as a prototype design for a new kind of pendant speaker with a variety of housings in different textures and colours, the principle being to make installed sound speakers as visually discreet as a light fitting. Following a positive response, the first in the SoundNut range made its first official appearance at InfoComm 2018: the 400W SN-8, featuring an eight-inch coaxial driver.
Four more SoundNut models were launched at ISE 2019 to complete the range: the SN-3, SN-6, SN-10, which feature three-, six- and 10-inch drivers respectively, and the SN-8SUB, an eight-inch subwoofer for low-frequency enhancement. All use the same basic design concept as the original SN-8. Once again, customers can choose variations in the colour and texture of the upper part of the speaker casing for visual integration with the surroundings, and the main part of the speaker housing will now also be available in black or white. All of the models in the range feature a built-in transformer, and can therefore be driven via low-impedance or high-impedance (70/100V) connections for distributed installations.
"The SN-8 was always going to be the trailblazer for the SoundNut range," explained Work Pro managing director Juan Jose Vila, "but the intention from the first was to expand the range to give our installation customers a variety of options, if it proved popular. The great success of the first SoundNut has ensured that the arrival of more models was only a matter of time."
