115th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 10, 2003 — Celestion, the leading designer and manufacturer of professional loudspeakers and guitar speakers for the music industry, including live sound applications and permanent installations, is pleased to announce it is currently shipping the recently introduced Truvox, Frontline2, and BL range of speakers. The announcement was made by Jack Kelly, President of Group One Ltd., exclusive U.S. distributor for Celestion.

Truvox Speakers
The Truvox range has been designed for professional sound reinforcement applications requiring accurate, clear performance such as PA and keyboard amplification. Truvox consists of 17 new models — each developed utilizing the latest design technology — covering a wide range of sound reinforcement applications. Truvox offerings start with a 5" unit for compact enclosures and culminate in a 15" 400 Watt unit. There are dedicated closed back midrange units, a 12" twin cone, and different power handling specifications in 6”, 8", 10", 12", and
15" units.

Designed for professional sound reinforcement applications requiring “upfront performance,” Frontline2 represents the next generation of the popular Frontline PA speakers from Celestion. Featuring a precision die-cast aluminum chassis for maximum strength and rigidity, the new Frontline2 15" and 18" speakers are designed for mid-bass and extreme bass applications. Each have a power rating of 700 Watts with a nominal impedance of 8 Ohms, employ a
4" voice coil, and utilize a ceramic magnet structure. The Frontline2 15" speaker weighs
28.48 lbs., while the 18" has a weight of 34.17 lbs.

BL Neodymium Bass Speakers
Incorporating the latest in Celestion’s loudspeaker technology, the BL Neo bass speakers feature a Neodymium magnet structure with extremely low weight (1/3rd the weight of its nearest conventional equivalent). BL Neo speakers offer exceptional performance with fast transient response, and exhibit the extreme clarity that has made Celestion the standard worldwide for the past four decades. The BL range includes the BL10-100 Neo (10", 100 Watts), BL10-150 Neo (10", 150 Watts), and BL15-400 Neo (15", 400 Watts). All models employ a Kevlar loaded paper cone for extended performance.
