Amate Audio has announced an new, premium commercial audio loudspeaker in its new G7 – ‘a ground-up, fully in-house, development to create a truly dedicated compact injection-mould design, able to match or exceed the performance levels of larger wooden loudspeaker cabinets’.

A two-way system within an EN54-24 certifiable, hexagonal-form, reinforced ABS plastic enclosure, the G7 claims continuous programme power handling and output of 120W and 112dB SPL resepectively, and a frequency response that allows deployment without sub bass reinforcement.

Amate Audio G7‘G7 was conceived from the outset to disprove the assumption that “premium” necessarily equates with a premium price tag,’ says Vice President and Chief Technical Officer, Joan Amate. ‘In developing a compelling proposition for the largest scale Commercial Audio applications, we understood we had to develop something distinct, in relation to market expectations. As well as something consistent with and representative of our hi-end brand values.’

As a starting point’ the company designed its own injection mould, integrating an advanced internal acoustic architecture, within a compact enclosure with a hexagonal form factor. A proprietary 6.5-inch carbon-fibre woofer claims performance characteristics equivalent to a normal 8-inch driver, and is matched with a 1-inch titanium dome, neodymium tweeter and an HF phase plug and flare assembly. Premium components and engineering extend to the aluminium grille and hardware, and outdoor-ready construction. The cabinet design incorporates a recessed connector panel with ergonomic protective cover and integrated mounts for the supplied U-bracket wallmount. Recessed screw sockets enable installation with Amate Audio’s SP-6N dual-axis wall-mount.

G7 was also conceived with practical and operational efficiencies for contractors and integrators, with power handling, output and frequency response requiring fewer cabinets for a given installation.

G7 provides a single SKU for both low impedance and 100V line applications, while eliminating the need for circuitry and associated weight in the cabinet; readily facilitating optional or mixed installations without increased stockholding. An easy-to swap-out optional rear connector plate provides the 100V line circuitry, with switchable 5W/10W/20W/40W power settings. Additionally, with its 16Ω impedance rating, the G7 can reduce any requirement for 100V line in smaller and medium installations with the ability to power 16 loudspeakers from a suitably power rated single two-channel amplifier.

‘We could never have come to this market with a similar looking, equivalent performance product, with that already in considerable over supply from Far East manufacturers,’ says Head of Sales, Jordi Amate. ‘In G7 we have something else, something more. Something that ultimately allows installers to offer a better customer experience. And that, for sure, represents the highest quality and performance to price ratio achieved with a plastic cabinet.’
