HOPEWELL JUNCTION, NEW YORK – MAY 2010: Skid Row produced a string of iconic hits in the late 1980s and early 1990s, including “18 and Life,” “Youth Gone Wild,” and “I Remember You,” that now help define the era.

DANLEY INTRODUCES WEATHERPROOF MOLDED, SYNERGY HORNS AT INFOCOMM

sm_60.JPG

GAINESVILLE, GEORGIA – MAY 2010: Danley Sound Labs, a manufacturer of innovative loudspeakers and subwoofers of uncommon fidelity, SPL, and directivity, announces the introduction of two new molded horn loudspeakers – the SM-60M and SM-60F – at InfoComm 2010. Both units feature Tom Danley’s patent-pending synergy horn technology. The SM-60F delivers full-range content, whereas the SM-60M delivers mid- and high-frequency content only. The units are similar in spirit to Danley’s flagship SH-50 full-range loudspeaker, but use fewer drivers and are constructed of molded plastic, making the stock units completely weatherproof (other Danley loudspeakers and subwoofers can be special ordered with weatherproofing at additional cost). Danley has priced the SM-60M and SM-60F to compete favorably with competitive molded horns, even though the Danley designs offer dramatically greater fidelity and directivity. more
