The distributor alliance booth will feature twenty-three vendors demonstrating new products, including new subwoofers and outdoor speakers from its exclusive A2V brand

The PowerHouse Alliance is pleased to announce additional growth to its A2V product line, created by and available exclusively through PowerHouse Alliance distributor members throughout the US. In addition to its dynamic collection of speakers, racks, TV mounts, and most recently added certified premium high-speed HDMI cables, A2V now features a line of free-standing subwoofers and outdoor speakers to be displayed this week in the PowerHouse Alliance booth #2925 at CEDIA Expo 2018.

“We launched the A2V brand one year ago at CEDIA Expo 2017, and since then we have grown the product line tremendously,” said Dennis Holzer, executive director for the PowerHouse Alliance. “In just one year we have added AV racks, TV mounts, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, HDMI cables, and today we are introducing subwoofers and outdoor speakers. We continue to listen to our dealers and design and manufacture products available exclusively to them that solve their installation needs.”

The A2V8SWB offers installers an entry level subwoofer to fit any space with a frequency response of 33Hz – 120Hz, 110dB sensitivity, and 100W/200W peak power. In the middle of the line, the A2V10SWB offers a frequency response of 32Hz – 120Hz, 112dB sensitivity, and 150W/300W peak power. For those that demand big loud bass, the A2V12SWB features a frequency response of 30Hz – 120Hz, sensitivity of 116dB, and 200W/400W peak power. A2V subwoofers are available in a Black Oak vinyl finish and offer a two-year warranty.

The new A2V outdoor all-weather loudspeakers offer premium sound and easy installation. The line consists of two rugged, sealed cabinets with C-bracket mount included, available in either black or white finish options.
