URC Introduces New Architectural Speaker Line Up, 4 Times More Efficient to Install

High Quality Audio with a True “Tool-less” Design, Detachable Quick Speaker Connects

Denver, CO (September 12, 2019)—URC, a global leader in smart automation and control for residential and commercial applications introduced their first-ever line of architectural speakers today at the 2019 CEDIA Expo show. The line consists of 4 models of in-ceiling speakers and a pair of outdoor speakers, all available mid-October.

“We had two key objectives in developing an architectural line of speakers,” said Chang Park, President and Owner of URC. “Of course, sound quality was most important, but we gave the team the challenge of developing an in-ceiling speaker line up that was the fastest in the industry to install.” URC’s in-ceiling speakers feature patented true ”Tool-less” secure clamping design and removeable speaker wire terminals, providing a significant time advantage over a conventional in-ceiling speaker. “We did some installation time trials throughout development,” said Lars Granoe, Vice President of Product Development. “Each speaker takes less than 1 minute to install, saving time and ultimately money. And they sound great, too!”
