VSi Series

The premier line of custom-installedloudspeakers.

A new Vision in greatSound

VSi Series Custom Loudspeakers are the ultimate in high performance audio. VSi Series loudspeakers take key innovations from our most touted traditional loudspeakers and skillfully adapt them for in-ceilingandin-wallapplications. Features includedie-castwoofer baskets and massive front baffles that add rigidity while ensuring precise alignment of driver components for unparalleled accuracy andnear-zerodistortion. We also usedie-castaluminum to create a patented pivoting tweeter cup that acts as a heatsink—bringingconcert hall quality to any room. Finally, most VSi Series models include a boundary

compensation switch that allows the sound to be precisely tailored to counteract the effects of being installed

too close—ortoo far from a corner. The result is optimum sound from any installation location.
