MB Quart Shipping Premium Series Speakers

LAS VEGAS, NV (12.13.2019) – Coming off the most successful new speaker launch in 10 years at SEMA, MB Quart is showcasing the new, top of the line, Premium Series speakers at CES. This new MB Quart series offering limited distribution with a full MAP policy across both Premium and Reference lines of speakers assure successful profitability.

MB Quart is showing at the Westgate, Suite 360, during CES.

Included in the new line is a reintroduction of a classic MB Quart configuration that we have not offered for several years, the PS1-316 400 Watt, 3-Way component system. This Premium audiophile system is a 3-Way component package complete with a pair of newly designed 1” Magnesium dome Widesphere technology tweeters that deliver exceptional musical reproduction of high frequencies (with a large sweet spot or off-axis listening area) plus two pairs of mid-range and mid-bass drivers.

The larger drivers start with a pair of 4” mid-range speakers (to handle higher midrange tones) and a pair of 6.5” mid-bass drivers for drums and high sub frequencies. These drivers utilize the curvilinear cone shape that MB Quart made famous and are constructed from a lightweight aerated pop paper with Mica blend. The mids and mid-bass speakers are housed in an innovative frame which is engineered with PA66 composite with 30% glass fiber added. This material renders the frame inert, eliminating harmonic distortion from vibration.

The entire package is controlled by an external three-way crossover network that will be appreciated by any audiophile for its ability to guide the proper frequencies from the amplifier into the appropriate drivers without coloring the sound. This is accomplished through the use of high tolerance, private label parts. Every model in the Premium line is engineered with the same meticulous care that we put into the PS1-316.
Brian Sherman, Vice President of Product & Marketing for Maxxsonics USA said, “At MB Quart, we put sound quality above everything else and our new Premium Series speakers are just the latest example of this approach. The use of exotic materials, like lightweight aerated pop paper cones with Mica blend and real magnesium tweeter domes, is yet another big step in performance for the MB Quart brand.”

FEATURES ACROSS THE LINE INCLUDE:

Magnesium Dome Tweeters:
1” Magnesium dome tweeter for musical reproduction of high frequencies

WideSphere Technology:
Tunable waveguide tweeter housing with removable phase lens to create a larger-than-life soundstage

Curvilinear Cone:
Lightweight aerated pop paper cone with Mica blend for strength and superior bass frequency reproduction

Low Resonant Frame
Aerospace grade PA66 composite with 30% glass fiber speaker frame to assure that no harmonic distortions affect the tone of the speaker

Audiophile Crossover
The crossover network, which guides the frequencies to each driver, is designed with tight tolerance components for superb sound quality

“These are some of the best sounding speakers MB Quart has ever offered. We’re excited to offer these speakers in new sizes and configurations in an effort to make life easier for installers,” concluded Sherman.

MIAMI GARDENS, FL (12.11.2019) – This HIGH WATTAGE speaker combo will no doubt blow all away! DS18 engineers rigorously tested and included two best selling speakers in one pack for 2020.

Extreme testing proved these two sets of speakers to be both very durable and able to handle high RMS power to give enthusiasts maximum loudness!

These 6.5’s come with 1.5” voice coils that handle 250w RMS at 4-ohm impedance. The 93dB sensitivity ensures the speaker gets loud even on lower power and handles max RMS power more efficiently.

The super tweeters included are the Pro TW-220 which handle an impressive 225 watts RMS each. These are also 4 ohms, so they are easily paired on all amps and have a very small footprint for such an immensely loud super tweeter. These have a sensitivity of 106DB and play frequencies from 2000-20000. Listeners need to be prepared for some of the clearest highs on the market accompanied by precise and clear mid bass provided by the Pro X6.4BMs.

When this combo is paired on a very strong DS18 4-Channel amp, or Pro Audio mono block, enthusiasts will have the loudest setup around! Proving at DS18 ”We Like It Loud.”

Discover The All-New Pandora

OAKLAND, CA (12.10.2019) – Pandora has announced that its redesigned mobile experience is now available for all listeners after initially rolling out to select users in October. The new features are designed to enhance discovery and give listeners exposure to Pandora’s vast library of on-demand music and podcasts, personalized content recommendations, and a wide selection of unique programming across all tiers of service: free ad-supported, Pandora Plus, or Pandora Premium.

The features light-up alongside a sweeping, multi-channel brand campaign that boldly weaves music, humor, and a vibrant new visual identity into a fresh narrative for the beloved streaming leader.

“This campaign captures the excitement we see when our users open the new Pandora app and discover that the listening experience they’ve always loved is now even bigger, better, and more in tune with the things they love and the way they live,” said Denise Karkos, Chief Marketing Officer at SiriusXM & Pandora.

The brand campaign combines humor, vibrant visuals, and relentless energy into the latest expression of Pandora’s “life is better with sound on” narrative. Cheeky creative copy implores readers to “Just play the damn song – you can actually do that,” or tells them, “You look nothing like you did ten years ago. Yeah, us too” with old and new images and songs from artists like H.E.R. to drive the point home. Infectious TV spots featuring songs from Halsey, Tones And I, and Normani jump off the screen beneath the tagline “The All-New Pandora: Be You. We’ll Be Your Music.”

“This campaign is all about showing our listeners that Pandora is still the service they know and love, but it looks and feels a whole lot different — a whole lot better. The product is at the center, and we are highlighting the personalized, on-demand content Pandora users want, but may not know we have,” said Brad Minor, VP of Brand Marketing, Creative & Communications at Pandora. “We’re celebrating our listeners in their everyday lives and demonstrating how Pandora has the unique ability to transform each moment by adding the exact right soundtrack at the exact right time.”

In addition to traditional media, Pandora will produce large-scale experiential events, including the unveiling of interactive street murals in key markets, and a live-streamed concert with Halsey that will transform New York’s Times Square into a massive silent disco. In the following weeks, Pandora will continue to engage top-tier artists to create immersive experiences across the U.S., leading up to one of the biggest Pandora / SiriusXM concerts to-date during the biggest weekend in sports.

The new mobile experience includes:

“For You,” a personalized, dynamically-updated discovery feed that serves up fresh, custom-curated music and podcast recommendations for each user throughout the day.

The “Pandora Modes” station customization feature, letting users lean-in on their “lean-back” Pandora listening experience.
A simplified navigation interface for greater ease of use.
Examples of new content include:

Playback 2019 – a personalized year in review of music curated for every Pandora listener.
Pandora’s Top Thumb Hundred 2019 playlist featuring the most thumbed up songs of the year, as well as a ten-year retrospective with the Top Thumb Hundred Songs of 2010-2019.
New and upcoming content from Marvel, Drake, and many more to come.
