Designer Sleeve pendants offer versatile look with high-performance speakers
Lenexa, Kan. – Sept 6, 2022 – MSE Audio, parent company of SoundTube, creator of The Original Pendant Speaker™, is excited to show the Designer Sleeve pendant speakers at CEDIA Expo 2022. The designer-minded commercial audio pendants are now available.
The Designer Sleeve DS31-EZ pendant speakers were developed to offer shape options for closed, near space applications that require a design element to meet décor needs. The Designer Sleeve includes a base speaker with the choice of a tapered or cylindrical sleeve. The speaker can be used with or without the sleeve based on the desired look. The speakers blend well with drop lighting and are available in silver (DS31-EZ-SL), black (DS31-EZ-BK), and white (DS31-EZ-WH).
The DS31-EZ is a premium full-range 3-inch pendant-mount speaker with a polypropylene driver and butyl rubber surround for long lasting performance. The DS31-EZ incorporates the ultra-low profile ZeroReflection™ ABS enclosure with a magnetic aluminum grille and protective power coated finish. The IPX6 rating makes the Designer Sleeve ideal for indoor or outdoor use.
“In closed ceiling applications like you see in restaurants, bars, classrooms, and many hospitality spaces, interior designers are looking for clear precise sound without an industrial look,” said Mike Sipe, Vice President of Sales. “The Designer Sleeve offers a variety of looks and colors with the flexibility to match many current design styles.”
The speaker has a 10-foot signal wire which doubles as the hanging cable, and it also includes a secondary 10-foot braided steel safety cable for added security. The speaker internal body is 7.5”H x 4.5” diameter and weighs 2.4 lbs. The speaker with the tapered sleeve is 8.25”H x 4.75” diameter and weighs 2.8 lbs. The DS31-EZ with the cylindrical sleeve is 8.5”H x 5.5” diameter weighing in at 3.4 lbs.
The unit may be hung or mounted direct-to-conduit via the locking cover plate. DS31-EZ speakers include a 6 position tap switch with transformer and an 8-ohm bypass option for low voltage systems.
