Anyone familiar with the Wisdom Audio label knows how the company’s offerings in the high end of the audio world can impress. They should expect about the same from the company’s new Sage Series architectural and in-room systems.
Wisdom says it will initially bring to market four speaker configurations, ranging from 15 inches to 75 inches tall, each available as an in-wall, on-wall, or freestanding solution. Multiple center channels, a multi-woofer in-wall sub enclosure, integrated Audyssey Laboratories room correction software, and dedicated electronics provide even further depth to the new product offerings.
Sage Series speakers feature new generation proprietary thin film planar magnetic drivers, which allow for their narrow and shallow physical characteristics. Wisdom Audio’s new planar magnetic drivers use neodymium magnets, which help in yielding a number of critical improvements such as higher sensitivity, higher achievable SPLs at lower frequencies, tighter control, reduced coloration, and improved directivity, the company says.
To ensure optimal in-room low frequency response, the bi-amplified Sage Series includes dedicated low frequency amplifiers in both the full-range speakers and subwoofer. Respectively, these amplifiers are the SA-3 (3 x 500W), SA-2 (2 x 500W) for full range speakers and SA-1 (1000W) for the subwoofer.
The in-walls include a full backbox so the speaker’s acoustical output is confined to its own “cabinet,” where each transducer is allowed to perform at its optimum, not left to chance by the varying acoustic environment of the home’s wall structure. Now that’s Sage sonic engineering, indeed.
