DENVER, CO – CEDIA EXPO 2019 – SOUND ROOM #3 – SEPTEMBER 12-14, 2019
Today RBH Sound introduced the SI-831R, the newest member of the company’s Signature Series In-wall lineup. The new speaker is designed specifically to be integrated into baffle-walls and other custom-finished locations in medium to large home theaters and two-channel listening environments. The company claims the SI-831R combines the high performance of conventional freestanding speakers with the ability to be hidden away, allowing both custom integrators and interior designers greater design flexibility for their clients.
A spinoff of the company’s award-winning flagship SVTR freestanding tower monitor, the SI-831R features the same speaker components as the SVTR’s top-half SI-831R module. Three 8-inch aluminum cone woofers are used to provide plentiful bass and midrange frequencies, and an Aurum Cantus AMT Aero Striction Tweeter is used for incredibly detailed upper-midrange and high frequencies extending to 35kHz, well beyond the capabilities of human hearing. The individual speaker components are arranged in a W-T- W-W line array, allowing the new model to be used for left, center, and right (LCR) effects channels, a feature explicitly requested by RBH’s dealers.
According to RBH, the SI-831R’s basic cabinet design and shallow 9-inch depth allows custom integrators to better adjust its position in the baffle wall. Integrators can now achieve reliable freestanding performance without the extra depth and bulk normally required to accommodate freestanding speakers. Additionally, the SI-831R does not feature any tuned vents to help keep installation simple and uncomplicated. Made entirely
from Medium Density Fiberboard, the SI-831R’s cabinet isn’t flashy and doesn’t tend to turn heads as its glossy sibling does, but RBH says there’s a good reason for this. Since the SI-831R is designed to be hidden anyway, RBH insists there’s no need to invest in a handsome cabinet only to have it concealed behind a screen or custom grille.
The SI-831R weighs in at 62 lbs with dimensions of 13-1/2" W x 42" H x 9" D. It has a sensitivity of 93dB (2.83V @ 1M) and has a frequency response of 50Hz-35kHz (±3dB). RBH’s suggested retail price for the SI-831R is $1,989.95 each. It is shipping now through the company’s authorized dealer and distributor network and it will be on display at CEDIA Expo in Sound Room 3 (SR-3), September 12-14, 2019.
