The SpeakerCraft AIM 8 TWO Series 2 speaker has an 15 degree pivoting 8" glass fiber Cone Woofer, 15 degree pivoting & 359 degree rotational ARC tweeter array incorporating (2) - 3/4" and (2) - 5/8" silk dome tweeters.

The Legend. ReCrafted.

More revolutionary than evolutionary, SpeakerCraft AIM Series 2 is 100% re-crafted to support sophisticated installations, demanding sonic performance, and advanced object-based surround audio platforms such as Dolby Atmos®, Auro-3D®, and DTS:X®. The re-crafting effort addresses every aspect of the speaker, from front to back, resulting in a sound solution you'll have to hear to believe.

Defies All Conventions and Industry Norms

Inspired by the line arrays used in concert venues, the high frequency array in the AIM Series 2 family features up to four tweeters oriented along a pivoting arc. They are fed in phase to constructively interfere with each other, thus sending high frequency sound waves farther into the listening area than traditional loudspeakers, and with a more carefully defined sound output pattern as well.

Sound Placement Enhances the Experience

A typical single-tweeter "point source" in an architectural speaker radiates a very wide soundfield. This actually creates multiple reflections from the room's periphery, presenting the listener with multiple delayed and out-of-phase versions of the original sound which reduce the clarity of that sound. The ARC Tweeter Array significantly enhances speech intelligibility by narrowing the sound output pattern in a manner that lets integrators precisely direct the soundfield to the listening area. By arraying the transducers closely together along a single arc, AIM Series 2 minimizes the disruption to the horizontal off-axis frequency response. Meanwhile, the high frequency response soundfield along the transducers' vertical axis will be diminished due to the close proximities of the adjacent transducers, which increases the vertical directivity. The increase in vertical directivity diminishes reflections outside the listening area, thus enhancing dialog and vocals.

The ARC Tweeter Array also enables a lower crossover point to increase the sound pressure level in the critical dialog and vocal frequencies so that acoustically, listeners enjoy a sweeter sweet spot.

A Bolder Richer Sound

Complementing the ARC Tweeter Array is the updated WavePlane technology that acts as an acoustic lens, focusing the high frequency audio energy into the listening environment for a cleaner, wider, and richer sound. Ordinary speakers only sound their best when you are directly underneath them but the WavePlane assures optimal high frequency dispersion throughout the listening area.

Taking Sound to New Levels

The enhanced aim-ability of AIM Series 2 presents new options for sound design-from home theater to whole home audio. More than ever, sound can be directed to a specific section of a room, angled toward a seating area or wherever an audio impact is desired.

Optimal Sound Dispersion

As a final touch, the AIM Series 2's Vortex Eliminators disperse sound as it reaches the outer edge of the speaker baffle. Acoustically, this moves the speaker closer to the surface of the ceiling, improving the overall dispersion of sound and eliminating any tunnel effect found in lesser ceiling speakers.

Longer Lasting, More Stable Installations

While the front of the speaker gets most of the deserved attention, the back of this speaker delivers game-changing technologies as well. The all-new design of the AIM Series 2 leverages Acoustic Isolation Technology to decouple the speaker housing from the surrounding materials, providing a more acoustically repeatable installation and improving sound transference to the listening area by eliminating structural resonance created by the surrounding wall or ceiling. The minimized resonance transfer is achieved using co-molded, lower density compounds and sets AIM Series 2 apart from any speaker in in the industry. You hear the speaker as it is meant to sound-not colored by the resonance of the material on which it is mounted.

Totally ReCrafted

Simply put, every element of the AIM Series 2 has been ReCrafted for heightened aesthetics and enhanced performance.

Features:

  • Uniform, aim-able high-frequency coverage.
  • Lower crossover point through increased number of drivers gives increased sound pressure level at the critical mid-range frequencies resulting in a sweeter sweet spot.
  • Smoother power response, higher power handling capability and less distortion than a single tweeter design.
  • New speaker housing design allows for a +/-15 degree pivoting woofer, totaling 30 degrees of adjustment, plus Arc-Tweeter Array with +/- 15 degree toe-in/toe-out adjustment, and 359 degrees of rotational flexibility.
  • Co-molded, lower density compounds minimize structural resonance in the surrounding wall/ceiling.
  • Updated WavePlane design enhances high frequency dispersion.
  • Acoustic Vortex Eliminators reduce sound turbulence.
  • Increased stiffness of the curvilinear cone design enables the cone to deliver energy to the air more effectively for greater bass response.
  • Butyl elastomer surround creates a more consistent sound with less disruption.
  • Non-conductive Kapton formers, copper caps and extended poles reduce distortion.
  • Improved power handling and sensitivity limits compression for louder and cleaner sound.
  • Symmetrical & A-symmetrical Linkwitz-Riley crossover designs for highest sound quality.
  • New Cone and Tweeter Materials: AIM 5, 7 & 8 TWO: Glass Fiber Woofer + Silk Dome Tweeters.
  • AIM 5, 7 & 8 THREE: Aluminum Woofer + Aluminum Dome Tweeters.
  • AIM 5, 7 & 8 FIVE: Kevlar Fiber Woofer + Aluminum-Magnesium Dome Tweeters.
  • Back mounted grille assembly magnets improve aesthetics and longevity of grille assembly.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy, and expensive and you probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.
