Amate Audio’s new G7 commercial audio loudspeaker now shipping

Amate Audio’s new commercial Audio loudspeaker, the G7, is now shipping to customers.

The loudspeaker features a compact injection-mould design, to match or exceed the performance levels of larger wooden loudspeaker cabinets. 

A 2-way system within an EN54-24 certifiable, hexagonal-form, reinforced ABS plastic enclosure, the G7offers a crystal clear and articulate sound. Continuous program power handling and output capabilities are rated at 120 W and 112 dB SPL, and a full-frequency response means that the G7 can be deployed without the need for sub bass reinforcement.

“G7 was conceived from the outset to disprove the assumption that ‘premium’ necessarily equates with a premium price tag,” stated 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 distinctly aesthetic hexagonal form factor. 

A proprietary 6.5 inch carbon-fibre woofer delivers performance characteristics equivalent to a normal 8-inch driver. And this is matched with a 1” titanium dome, neodymium tweeter and an HF phase plug and flare assembly. 

The cabinet design incorporates a recessed connector panel with ergonomic protective cover and integrated mounts for the supplied U-bracket wall-mount. 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 very much in mind. With its high power handling, output and full-frequency response, significantly less cabinets are required for any installation, while still operating well within their range of capability, with more than sufficient residual headroom. 

G7 provides a single SKU for both low impedance and 100V line applications, while eliminating the need for any redundant 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 5 W / 10 W / 20 W / 40 W power settings. Additionally, with its 16 ohm 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 2-channel amplifier.
