Niles’ StageFront Home Theater in-wall loudspeakers
March 30, 2007 by Arlen Schweiger

Niles Audio Corporation has begun shipping its StageFront Home Theater Solutions, a new line of loudspeakers designed specifically for consumers’ home theaters, to Niles factory-authorized dealers worldwide.

The entire StageFront series includes both in-wall and cabinet models that are voice-matched to deliver consistent uniform sound quality, regardless of loudspeaker type, according to Niles. This frees custom installers to design systems for the homeowner that incorporates some models that are built into cabinets or placed on stands, with others that are built into walls, optimizing performance, appearance and design flexibility.

Here are the StageFront Home Theater Product Family Details:
