Adamson unveils Weatherized speakers and design tools

Canadian pro audio specialist Adamson has lifted the lid on its new range of IS-Series Weatherized loudspeakers and an assortment of design tools for the installation market.

The new IS-Series Weatherized line is designed to offer AV professionals a loudspeaker range purpose-built to handle the most extreme climates in the world. Weatherized enclosures are especially well suited to marine and coastal venues, outdoor stadiums, open-air performance spaces, and other permanent outdoor installations.

Adamson loudspeakers have always been known for their durability and sonic performance, both on the road and in permanent installations,” said Adamson’s head of product and technology, Brian Fraser. “With the Weatherized line, we’ve added corrosion resistance and environmental sealing features that are going to ensure long-term durability in harsh environments without impeding performance.”

IS-Series Weatherized models have been built to achieve an IP55 rating without sacrificing performance or aesthetics, while all structural steel elements of the cabinets are made from a stainless alloy that offers 100 per cent corrosion resistance.

Whether you’re dealing with sea water, intense heat or cold, or endless rain, these cabinets are built to deliver uncompromising audio and a venue-friendly form factor,” Fraser added. “Even after extreme environmental testing, they look and sound incredible.”

Weatherized versions are available now for the entire family of IS-Series loudspeakers.
