Who wants big behemoth speakers disrupting their view of movies, TV shows and sports in their home theaters? OK, maybe several of you raised your hands on that one, but a lot of you these days are saying “not me” too.
In-ceiling and on-ceiling speakers are becoming hot commodities in home theater installations these days, thanks to their space saving and aesthetics features. Pinnacle’s new OC HT 1 on-ceiling speaker falls right into this desirable trend.
Its discrete circular cabinet design of varying depths helps deliver cleaner, more accurate bass response for those great action movies, while on-wall positioning at ear level will give you high-quality audio for music listening as well from the 1-inch silk dome tweeter and 5.25-inch polypropylene woofer.
The OC HT 1 is also a good choice if it’s not a new construction or if you’re an apartment or condo dweller tight on space.
Other features include 3-in-1 mounting bracket, high-gloss piano lacquer finish, both metal perforated and cloth grilles, built-in automatic overload protection circuit, and 10-year transferrable warranty on parts and labor.
MSRP is $349 each, or a 3-pack at $999.
