Sonance is one speaker stronger, thanks to the SM55 SST. The new single-stereo model will actually double the size of the company’s Surface Mount selection—which means now there are two!
The single-speaker solution is designed for situations where an array of speakers won’t fit, but you can’t do an in-wall or in-ceiling install. The unit includes a dual-voice coil 5.25-inch carbon fiber cone woofer with two flanking, wide-range 1-inch silk dome ferrofluid-cooled tweeters.
Just like the existing Surface Mount SM55 unit, all you need is a screwdriver and an installer to get the unit up and running. We’re hoping the installer would have his own screwdriver. Once the unit is set with the mounting plate, the unit can be rotated up to 90 degrees to align it to room decor, surfaces, or your mood.
Sonance’s SM55 SST will be available in December for $365 each. A mounting plate is also available for an extra $50.
