5 Jan 2015

New outdoor speakers will be on display at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show, January 5-8, Central Hall 10406

Las Vegas January 5, 2015Acoustic Research, leaders of innovative and high-performance audio solutions, expands their speaker series with the launch of four new indoor/outdoor speakers for Spring 2015. The new lineup includes quality Bluetooth speakers at prices to fit any budget and style – Hatteras, Glendale, Pasadena, and Orleans.

“Acoustic Research specializes in designing timeless high quality indoor and outdoor wireless speakers for family living spaces,” said Ian Geise, Senior Vice President of Acoustic Research. “Our Spring 2015 lineup features three distinct series of indoor and outdoor speakers that incorporate classic designs with outstanding sound quality.”

Elite Series

The Hatteras, $219.99, is a high-power outdoor Bluetooth stereo speaker system that provides style and functionality that can be used year round. As a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree winner, the Hatters’ beautiful design was inspired by America’s lighthouses as an inspiration of timelessness, stability, functionality and power. No other speaker on the market has integrated superior audio with mood lighting, making the Hatteras a statement piece during backyard gatherings.  The Hatteras stands 2 feet tall, is weather and UV resistant with 40 watts of yard-filling power, and delivers acoustic performance normally associated with much higher priced speaker systems. It can also illuminate parties with 360 degrees of area lighting and multiple settings:  soft to full lightning controlled on a dimmer, and diffused or bass-driven dance lighting.

Premier Series  

The Glendale and Pasadena speakers deliver 10 watts of full-range audio performance for crystal clear sound both indoors and outdoors. Equipped with Bluetooth technology, both speakers are true stereo capable to deliver 20 watts of powerful sound when used in pairs, and feature direct connect capabilities to your devices. Both speakers can be powered via AC adapter and the Glendale is capable of running on AA batteries, while the Pasadena features a built-in rechargeable battery.   Glendale will be available for $119.99 and the Pasadena will be available for $99.99

Limited Series

The limited-series Orleans, $99.99, features big, bold, three-way sound. Stream and control your music from your devices using Bluetooth wireless technology or use the built-in Aux Input for other wired sources. The Orleans features 10 watts of high-quality, full, rich audio performance and has a power span of 10-12 hours using AA batteries, or keep the party going all day and night with the included AC adapter.

The Spring 2015 speaker collection will be on display to media members for the first time at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall Booth #10406 during the 2015 Consumer Electronic Show, January 6-9.  For more information on Acoustic Research’s current line of audio products, go to or contact
