Artcoustic Loudspeakers announced a complete upgrade to their entire range of décor-friendly on-wall loudspeakers. The new X2 range from Artcoustic focuses squarely on performance, while furthering the company's iconic design principals.

The signature of the X2 range is a new twin tweeter unit has a frequency response up to 40kHz, with a sensitivity that makes them perform with ease in cinema and high-end music systems.

The new bass drivers designed for the speakers are 5.5" units in the entry-level models - Diablo Mini Monitor, Diablo Monitor, DF-Multi, and the DF65-50 - and twin 10" bass units in the flagship models, which now sport bass response well below 20Hz.

In addition to internal improvements, the company is now shipping its flagship speaker and subwoofer models - DFF180-43, DFF120-43, DF100-75, DFS100-75, and DFS75-55 - with a separate power amplifier. The recently introduced PA-300 is a professional-grade 150 watt stereo amplifier, bridgeable to 300 watts mono.

Each pair of DFF120-43 and DF100-75 speakers ships with one PA-300. Each DFF180-43, DFS100-75 sub, and DFS75-55 sub ships with its own PA-300. Effective September 1st, the amplifier - a $750 MSRP value - is now being included in the price of the speaker/subwoofer at no additional increase in cost.

The company has also just announced that all loudspeakers and subwoofers will be available in white as a standard finish, to complement the standard black or silver models. Custom painted cabinets remain an option for anyone wishing to match their décor.

Pricing ranges from the Diablo Mini Monitor at $1,150 MSRP / pair to the DFF180-43 at $7,000 each. Custom cabinet finishes and art grilles are optional.
