The Extron System INTEGRATOR® "SI" Speaker Series is a family of speakers designed for small and large classrooms, conference rooms, lecture halls, and auditoriums. System INTEGRATOR speakers are optimized for smooth, accurate reproduction of music and voice for both low and high power delivery applications. Extron SI speakers sound great and meet the high product quality standards for which we are known.
The SI Series is designed to integrate easily with Extron MPA Mini Power Amplifiers, XTRA™ Series Power Amplifiers, MediaLink® Switchers and Controllers, wallplates, and cables. Together, they form an all-in-one source for complete AV systems from Extron.
The SI Series speakers are the result of a two-year research and design effort at Extron with extensive testing and listening. In particular, design efforts were focused on the crossover circuitry, from bass through midrange to the high frequencies. Special attention was given to match the dome tweeter to the woofer for a smooth, flat response with a minimum of phase shift. The surface mount models feature an Extron exclusive conical horn design that is coupled to the tweeter. The conical horn design virtually eliminates phase shift that would otherwise result in a harsh and peaked tonal quality caused by frequency cancellation.
Extron System INTEGRATOR Speaker Series includes the following:
- Surface mount speakers with exclusive V-Lock® mounting system
- Ceiling speakers with or without low profile, plenum-rated back cans
- In-wall speakers with open back, infinite baffle designs
All SI speakers are sold in pairs and have a five-year parts and labor warranty.
Extron Surface Mount Speakers
The System INTEGRATOR SI 3, SI 26, and SI 28 are surface mount speakers designed to deliver optimized, high quality sound for a wide variety of applications. They are typically installed in classrooms, conference rooms and boardrooms when a surface mount speaker is preferred over a ceiling or in-wall device. They are also the perfect choice for restaurants, retail establishments, health clubs, themed entertainment venues, airports and convention centers or any other applications where high quality foreground/background music and paging are required.
The SI 3 is a surface mount speaker that is compact in size, yet delivers surprisingly wide, smooth frequency response for faithful sound reproduction of a wide range of audio material. The full-range driver and an Extron exclusive conical baffle work together to ensure accurate presentation of voice and music.
A compact surface mount speaker such as the SI 3 is a logical choice for small to medium classrooms and conference rooms where wall space is at a premium. To address the issue of beaming in the midrange and high frequencies that can be found in a small, compact speaker, the SI 3 has been designed with a 3" (7.6 cm) full-range driver that is acoustically coupled to an Extron exclusive conical baffle. This baffle serves as a waveguide to help create a wide dispersion profile. With this very broad conical spreading of the mid and high frequencies, two SI 3 speakers in a small to medium classroom should ensure consistent volume levels for everyone while delivering increased intelligibility and accurate music reproduction.
The SI 3 features an incredibly wide frequency response of 75 Hz to 18 kHz, and 16 watts continuous pink noise and 32 watts continuous program capacity. An internal overload protection circuit prevents driver damage due to excessive input levels.
The SI 3 has a nominal impedance of 8 ohms. It is available with a black or white finish that can also be painted to match the environment.
SI 26 and SI 28
The SI 26 and SI 28 are two-way speaker designs with a ferrofluid-cooled, aluminum dome tweeter and a long-throw woofer with large magnets for solid low-frequency response. The tweeter is coupled to an Extron exclusive conical horn designed to minimize phase shift and deliver flat response over the mid- and high-frequency ranges. With this new conical horn design, harsh tonal qualities due to cancellation in portions of the frequency range caused by phase shifting are all but eliminated.
The SI 26 and SI 28 incorporate a precision engineered crossover design that assures a smooth transition from bass to midrange and high frequencies, delivering optimum voice and music reproduction. An input power-limiting protection circuit is included for preventing woofer and tweeter damage due to overdriving. A weather-resistant housing and drivers make these speakers suitable for use in outdoor environments.
The SI 26 features a 6.5" woofer, a 1" dome tweeter, 75 watts continuous pink noise or 150 watts continuous program capacity, and frequency response from 70 Hz to 20 kHz.
The larger SI 28 features an 8" woofer, a 1" dome tweeter, 90 watts continuous pink noise or 180 watts continuous program capacity, and frequency response from 50 Hz to 20 kHz.
Both models have a nominal impedance of 8 ohms. They are available with a black or white finish that can also be painted to match the environment.
Extron V-Lock® Speaker Mounting System Included
Included with every SI 3, SI 26, and SI 28 speaker is V-Lock, a Patent Pending speaker mounting system. V-Lock simplifies installation and substantially reduces the effort required to place and correctly position wall-mounted speakers either vertically or horizontally, while also offering theft deterrence. All that is required is mounting the bracket onto the wall, sliding the speaker onto this bracket – in a manner similar to hanging a picture, and then positioning and locking the speaker into place through the front grille.
