CARLSBAD, CALIFORNIA –  Demonstrating its commitment to provide residential installers with a complete range of ELAN-branded AV solutions, Nortek Security & Control (NSC) today announced that it is now shipping its new line of  ELAN® architectural speakers. The new ELAN speakers deliver exceptional entertainment experiences for systems of all sizes. The line launched with fifteen new in-ceiling and in-wall models, from the entry level 400 Series, to the whole home multi-purpose 600 Series, to the high performance distributed audio and home theater of the 800 Series.

ELAN’s 400 Series Speakers are perfect for homeowners who want high-end audio without breaking the bank. The 400 Series features ½” Tweeters and Polypropylene cone woofers. “This high-value line provides dealers with more options for customers who want a great audio experience but aren’t keen on heavily investing in it,” Zaliauskas added.

ELAN’s 600 Series Speakers are multipurpose speaker solutions that deliver elevated performance. All five speakers in the series feature upgraded injection-molded polypropylene cone woofers and pivoting 1” soft dome tweeters. “The 600 Series is perfect for a home theater, or for distributed audio applications throughout the home,” Zaliauskas commented.

Whether homeowners enjoy high-performance audio in every room or high-powered sound in their home theater,ELAN’s 800 Series Speakers are an ideal choice. Exceptional clarity, resolution and dynamics are achieved via graphite-injected polypropylene cone woofers and aluminum dome tweeters. All seven 800 Series Speakers have a vocal enhancement switch that increases vocal clarity and enhances dialogue. Users also have the option to adjust the speakers’ tweeter performance via a front-mounted “tweeter” enhancement switch.

Preconstruction brackets are available for all models. The new ELAN® architectural speaker portfolio consists of:
