The Aerial Acoustics Model 7LCR is a high performance 3-way loudspeaker designed specifically for on-wall or in-wall use. With dimensions of 38 x 8 x 4.8” deep and simple 2-point mounting using brackets supplied, vertical or horizontal installation is easy either on or in a wall. Most importantly, the 7LCR provides the same balance, natural tonality, delicate resolution, sensitivity, wide dynamics, and high output as larger Aerial floor standing models, sacrificing only the lowest octave. Serious high performance is finally possible on-wall or in-wall.
The all-new 7LCR design, with its rotatable thick aluminum center plate, allows the tweeter and midrange drivers to be properly aligned for either vertical or horizontal use. Dual rear switches optimize the response for different mounting positions, including behind screens, and for use in any system.
The Model 7LCR reflects the design of the new Aerial 5T, 6T and 7T models. The curved shape is created by bonding multiple layers of wood together under high pressure for 48 hours in a 20 ton press. Individual front woofer baffles are attached to the cabinet face with damping glue, reducing energy flow from the drivers into the cabinet walls. The thick black brushed-aluminum center plate containing the tweeter and midrange drivers seals their dedicated air chamber, inhibits energy transmission to the cabinet, and allows rotation. The internal volumes are damped with New Zealand long-fiber wool specifically chosen for its sonic character. All these steps ensure a rigid, well-damped enclosure capable of reproducing soft or loud music passages without sonic colorations. Finally, the Model LCR cabinet is beautifully finished by hand in multi-layer high gloss Nero Metallic Black. It looks elegant with or without its magnetic grill on-wall or in-wall.
The Aerial 7LCR features the same delicate and natural-sounding 1” woven ring-dome dual-magnet Danish tweeter from the 7T, a quick-acceleration custom-made papyrus-blend midrange driver based on the 6T and 7T drivers, and two special new 6.7” long-stroke aluminum cone woofers custom-made for the 7LCR. The same high level of crossover componentry and wiring as in the 7T is used. With the optimized crossover and comprehensive environmental compensation switching, the result is a pleasingly natural presentation and seamless, highly detailed response from 60 Hz to 25 kHz.
