THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR EVERY ROOM AND APPLICATION


Niles loudspeakers are designed to perform well in a number of unique installation scenarios. The following outlines just a few. Showers, Kitchens, Spas & Bathrooms
Solution: Niles Stereo Input (SI) Loudspeakers Niles Stereo Input loudspeakers deliver stereo sound from a single loudspeaker so they are optimal in locations where two loudspeakers wont work. In addition, Niles SI loudspeakers weather-resistant construction makes them perfect for installation in these wet environments.

Outdoors on the Patio


Solution: Niles Ceiling Mount Loudspeakers DS and CM loudspeakers feature weatherresistant construction making it easy to specify great sound for the great outdoors, and best of all Niles backs them with a lifetime limited warranty.

Home Theater (Indoors & Outdoors)


Solution: Directed Soundfield (DS) Loudspeakers; CM710fx and CM750fx DS loudspeakers provide you with the ability to create the ultimate cinematic experience for your customers. You can direct the low, mid and high range frequencies, optimally diffuse the surround-sound, and create a sweet spot that envelops the viewer in the home theater experience. DS loudspeakers feature oversized motor structures, enhanced circuitry and quality components to support the extreme dynamics of home theater applications. The DS line offers dedicated left/right, center channel and surround effects models at every performance level. Niles CM offering features two surround effects loudspeakers, the CM710fx and CM750fx, which combine with their tonally matched left/right counterparts to build great sounding home theater systems. The weather-resistant design of both DS and CM loudspeakers make them the perfect solution to address the growing trend of outdoor home theater systems.

Bass Enhancement
Solution: Niles Ceiling-Mount Subwoofers Whether you're outfitting a home theater or simply want to add more bass to a listening area, Niles Ceiling-Mount Subwoofers offer the perfect solution.

Matching the Look of Light Cans


Solution: CM610 and CM630 The compact CM610 and CM630 come with two-sets of grilles, including a recessed cloth grille that matches the look of popular recessed light can fixtures.

Vaulted & Cathedral Ceilings


Solution: Directed Soundfield (DS) Loudspeakers Unlike fixed position loudspeakers that project sound from the plane of the installed surface, DS loudspeakers have the ability to redirect the sound to the ideal listening position. In vaulted and cathedral ceilings, DS loudspeakers have the ability to project the sound downward even though the loudspeaker baffle is installed at an angle.

Hallways & Foyers


Solution: Stereo Input (SI) Loudspeakers Installing traditional stereo loudspeakers in hallways has its challenges. Imagine walking down a hallway and hearing the installed loudspeakers alternate between the left signal and right signal. Stereo Input loudspeakers avoid this by delivering both left and right channels in a single speaker so you provide your customer with high-quality, consistent sound coverage.

Overcoming Interior Design Objections or Installation Obstacles


Solution: Directed Soundfield (DS) Loudspeakers Whether its an aesthetic consideration or structural obstacle, you dont always have the option to place a loudspeaker in the optimum location. DS loudspeakers enable you to compensate for less than desirable placement by directing the sound to the listening area.

Light Commercial
Solution: CM610 and CM630; Stereo Input (SI) Loudspeakers The CM610 and CM630 are good choices because of their compact size and their ability to blend with recessed lighting. In addition, Niles Stereo Input (SI) loudspeakers perform well because they provide broad, even coverage thats desirable for restaurant seating and bar areas. In restrooms, SI loudspeakers provide quality, consistent stereo sound coverage from a single loudspeaker, which is great for locations that cannot support more than one loudspeaker.

NILES CEILING-MOUNT LOUDSPEAKERS THE PERFECT SOLUTION FOR ANY APPLICATION


For application-specific solutions, easy installation, and legendary quality and reliability, look no further than Niles Audio. Our integrated woofer/baffle provides a 15% improvement in woofer cone area, so they produce deeper, richer bass than similarly sized models. Also, most CM Series loudspeakers feature a proprietary bridge-mounted tweeter instead of a pole-mounted tweeter, so we can make the loudspeaker weatherresistant by using a sealed woofer cap.
