Leon Speakers at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis last week introduced a new line of speakers design to withstand the wear and tear of outdoor conditions. Like all of Leon’s speakers, the models in the Boundary line are custom crafted, but this time out of select Mahogany and finished with the same rich varnish as the hull of classic ships. The Boundary B404 features two 4” outdoor aluminum cone woofers, and 1” aluminum/magnesium dome tweeters, specially formulated to weather the elements.
The Boundary Series speakers are sold as systems along with Leon’s new LS-2200 2-channel amplifier or LS-1260, a 12-channel (or six zone) amplifier. Both can drive as many as 16 pairs of speakers.
The Boundary B404 outdoor speaker, LS-2200 (2-channel amp) and LS-1260 (12-channel amp) are currently available for $2,200, $4,500, and $6,500, respectively.
If you’d like to bring video to the outdoors as well, Leon Speakers has custom-designed a Boundary speaker to match the exact width of Seura’s new outdoor TV. The speaker mounts directly to the Seura TV using a bracket exclusively designed for this application.
