Image 'LPM' Wall-Mount Speakers
All about the Image hand made, wall mount, LPM speakers for space saving music listening or home cinema from Totally Wired. Image have now extended their range to give you more options in speaker placement with their new on–wall range, the LPM or 'Low Profile Monitors'.
Hand made in New Zealand Image have a long and reputable heritage in making high quality loudspeakers that also represent great value for money. The LPM range carries on with this tradition so you can be assured of purchasing speakers which excel in performance, reliability, build and finish quality. Image achieve this not only by utilizing high quality parts but by using the optimal part for the overall design. Chris Ball of Image has great skill and experience in speaker design and another notable aspect of his speakers is his work on the crossovers. Chris takes great pride in his speakers and has an astute ear. His designs are all the result of building, tweaking, listening and tweaking again. Sounds simple but it’s no mean feat in the competitive environment of audio. Yet Image consistently produce loudspeakers that deliver performance which over reaches their price.
One of the things found in good speaker design is the build of the cabinet. Image speakers like over–speced houses are extremely structurally sound. Thus illuminating cabinet resonance. So imagine this along with all the other attributes of Image speakers and you will have found the answer to your search for a quality on–wall speaker at an affordable price. On–wall is generally better than in–wall and the Image LPM One at just 7.7 cm deep very unimposing.
The LPM One is versatile enough for many uses. Often our living spaces have a lot of windows or rooms are small so accommodating a speaker that takes up floor space can often be difficult. Or you may have young children and want to enjoy music in your home so the practically of speaker out of reach is desirable. You may have a modern style home where the minimal size and white lacquer finish of the LPM speakers would be perfect. The LPM One speakers are a two way sealed and braced cabinet and the size in cms is 37H x 26W by 7.7D. NZ$ 900 a pair.
Another ideal situation for this speaker range is for home theatre. Although perhaps just a pair of the LPM Ones on either side of your TV screen to enhance the television sound is all that would make you happy. Keep in mind in this case you’ll need a amplifier and the Nuforce stereo amplifier, so small in size but great sounding would fit the bill perfectly. To step into the home theatre arena a timbre matched centre speaker is your next requirement. The LPM Centre blends in seamlessly both in looks and technology with the LPM Ones. Both the Ones and the Centre have a power rating of 80 watts. Image however, have always produced very efficient speakers so modestly powered but good quality amplifiers such as Nuforce, Rotel or Cambridge would provide perfectly adequate and well matched electronics. In cms 15.H x 50w by 7.7D. NZ$ 500 each.
Whilst the LPM ones are a full range speaker you may like to extend the base, especially for a full home theatre experience, with the matching LPM Sub. The driver is a Peerless 21cm (8inch) Nomex cone in rigid aerodynamic cast Aluminium chassis and ventilated spider known for their power handling and reliability. The modestly sized cabinet, (in cms 37H x 33W by 33D), is fully braced and acoustically sealed. LPM Sub is totally active with a built–in 200 watt amplifier. Bear in mind that a powered sub, as this is, takes the 'bass powering' pressure off your main amplifier or home theatre receiver allowing you to have an overall better sound. NZ$ 1,400 each
The standard finish on the LPM range is white lacquer with a choice of either black or white grills. A unique attribute of Image speakers is being hand made in New Zealand means that you can have special lacquer finishes made to order. There may be a small extra charge for this but Image can finish to your colour choice or match your wall colour. All LPM models are supplied with wall brackets for easy mounting and a small spirit level to ensure the correct positioning. Great service and great sounding speakers all in one happy package.
Image speakers are wholly New Zealand owned, designed and made. They have a 30 year heritage of producing high quality product that are comparable with some very expensive imported equivalents. So you can make the conscientious choice by buying New Zealand made and get a world class product at an affordable price. And, each time you make a purchase of NZ$ 2,000 or more we’ll give you a Music for Mauis CD to help support the survival of Hector dolphins, as a present.
