The patented SSP6 Multiducer™ (Multifunctional Transducer) brings a revolution to not only invisible audio, but all kinds of installed speaker applications.
Its sheer performance with high fidelity audio, high power handling and constant SPL throughout a listening space mean it’s the perfect speaker for sound masking, conference rooms, retail, restaurant, hospitality, house of worship, transportation and other commercial uses; its performance combined with fully invisible installation make it ideal for high end residential use.
The SSP6 Multiducer is a new class of product for transforming rigid surfaces – walls, ceilings, tables, windows, vehicles, and other surfaces – into full range audio speakers. It employs a different subset of acoustical physics – bending wave physics – giving you a true Distributed Mode Loudspeaker (DML) with no hot spots or off-axis high frequency dropoffs.
The Pendant360™ mount for Revolution Acoustics’ SSP6 Multiducer allows integrators to bring superior, immersive sound to rooms with open plenum spaces. It offers clean room aesthetics without visible speaker grilles or large hanging speaker structures; hanging height is adjustable. The 19″ diameter, high gloss white surface is paintable to blend completely into the background, or to be decorated as overhead art, at the designer’s discretion. It is ideal for sound masking, enabling the use of this technology in open spaces while providing the same masking signal as in adjacent rooms with hard or drop ceilings.
A single SSP6 Multiducer mounts on top of the unit. This revolutionary product transforms the surface of the Pendant360 into a high quality speaker, using bending wave physics to provide uniform audio across a broad area without hot spots or off-axis high frequency dropouts.
Applications include music and paging in restaurants, transportation platforms and manufacturing facilities. The SSP6 is IP66 rated, allowing its use indoors and out, and the Pendant360 disk is also suitable for outdoor use.
Argosy Cruises’ newest tour boat in the Seattle area is the Salish Explorer. Built by All American Marine and outfitted by system integrator OpenSquare, the Salish Explorer’s comprehensive audio system features Revolution Acoustics SSP6 Multiducers throughout.
“Argosy wanted to do this the right way from the outset,” said OpenSquare’s Michael Combs, Director of Technology. “Tour boats haven’t been known for consistent audio quality – audio has typically been way too loud or extremely muddy depending on where you’re standing or sitting. They insisted the Salish Explorer have consistent sound throughout. Argosy also had a unique challenge – some of their cruises go past residential areas and they wanted a sound system that would be loud enough for everyone on the boat to enjoy without blasting the shoreline with unwanted sound.”
