Great Sound, Cool Look: New Montana SP Series 3 Loudspeaker
Will it match my décor? Can I get it in any finish? Will it work with my amplifier? PBN Audio addresses all these questions and more with its new Montana SP Series 3 loudspeakers. The latest generation of the company's acclaimed two-way column, the new SP features a sturdily braced hexagonal cabinet for ultralow cabinet resonance, a new "fabric ring radiator" tweeter, twin 7-inch midrange/woofers, and a redesigned crossover network. The SP's 89-decibel sensitivity guarantees compatibility with almost all home theater amplifiers, and a wide variety of finishes will yield visual continuity with almost any style of decorating.
Standard finishes on the 43-inch high column include approximately 20 different real-wood veneers like walnut, cherry, oak, beech, and bird's-eye maple. Black lacquer is also an option for $700 extra. Montana loudspeakers can be finished in almost any color on a custom basis, according to company president Peter Noerbaek. The SP Series 3 will begin shipping to dealers in late August, he says. Suggested retail is $3500/pair.
With a pair of SPs left and right, the ideal center channel is the $2750 Montana SPC. Height is 11-inches high by 36-inches wide and 16-inches deep, perfect for mounting atop a rear-projection set or below a screen. Recommended rear speakers in an all-PBN system are the $2995/pair Montana DPS, also available in all finishes.
