SpeakerCraft Set to Deliver Entire New Rock Speaker Line
Dramatic improvements in sound quality and aesthetics
RIVERSIDE, CA August, 2009 SpeakerCraft, the world leader in custom installed loudspeakers and electronics, announced the delivery of Ruckus, their new line of outdoor rock speakers. Replacing the Rox series, Ruckus is a line of ten models with major upgrades in both sonic capability and appearance.
“The loudspeaker rock format has become a very important part of the SpeakerCraft offering,” says Jeff Francisco, SpeakerCraft’s V.P. of Product Development. “The new Ruckus series advances that format featuring new driver compliments and a much more durable housing that will withstand extreme weather and other abuse these speakers face in exterior installations.”
The Ruckus loudspeakers have an incredibly durable U.V. and weather-resistant lacquer coating on top of a reinforced, color-matched polyresin enclosure. This means that even if the outer coating is chipped or marred, the material underneath is the same color and, just like an actual rock, will maintain its rock-like appearance.
Available in five models, each in either granite or sandstone finishes; the Ruckus series speakers will blend into any landscape. Their carefully molded enclosures do an excellent job of mimicking actual stone and will provide years of outdoor entertainment.
Along with the standard coaxial driver compliments in five, six or eight-inch versions, there is also a dual tweeter model that plays both stereo channels from a single enclosure. In addition there is a subwoofer with a dedicated amplifier to provide bass frequency support to the rest of the line. The Sub Ruckus is also an obvious choice to enhance the SpeakerCraft line of Outdoor Elements, a series of high-performance outdoor cabinet speakers.
The first three models will ship in mid-August with the Sub and Dual Tweeter models following six week later. MSRP on the various units are as follows
Ruckus 5 $225 ea. Ruckus 6 $275 ea.
Ruckus 8 $450 ea. Ruckus DT $350 ea. Ruckus Sub (including the dedicated amplifier) $999 each.
