The following is a press release issued by Underwood Hifi.
LAHAINA, HAWAII - Walter Liederman, President and Owner of Underwood Hifi, Inc is pleased to announce the complete re-design of the LSA Loudspeaker Product Group. The Design Team of Industry Veterans Dan Wiggins and Dusty Vawter have given us 4 new loudspeakers that promise to set new standards for Price v Performance.
Liederman comments – The new prototype LSA models were introduced at the Axpona 2018 Show to great acclaim and accolade. The finished models are considerably better and are now in our North Carolina facility for immediate shipment.
The LSA Group was purchased by Liederman some 4+ years ago. By utilizing unique hi performance technologies like patented xbl2 motors, custom copper/beryllium tweeters and heirloom quality cabinets we have the component parts for loudspeakers that are unmatched at their price-points. Couple that to our computer aided crossover design manufacturing expertise… the results are an unbeatable Internet Direct Sales Model that CAN deliver products that compare to others at 2 to 3 times their cost.
The LSA Group has a spectacular lineage. Winners of multiple awards, The LSA-1 Statement was named one of the 5 best under $3000.00 speakers by The Absolute Sound in 2016. It was an Editor’s Choice at $2800.00 retail.
LSA has proven to be a customer favorite for over 10 years. Since the purchase by Underwood Hifi, Liederman changed the model to Internet Direct which has only accelerated growth and sales. This allowed the company to make the investments necessary for this next-gen product group.
The newly minted LSA-10 Statement monitor uses a custom LSA 1” copper beryllium dome tweeter with a compact neodymium XBL2 magnet structure and a shallow waveguide to better integrate with the woofer, a single custom LSA black anodized aluminum 6.5” XBL2 woofer, and a single rear mounted 5” x 7” sub bass radiator. Other upgrades include a far more sophisticated 8th order linear phase acoustic crossover topology with state of the art LSA custom crossover components and upgraded internal cable. The LSA-10 Statement has an in-room response from 35 Hz to 30 kHz +/-3dB, an 89dB sensitivity and an 8-ohm rating. The LSA-10 Statement has a Piano Rosewood veneer finish with a magnetically attached grille. This model is also available in our Signature Edition which features a soft dome tweeter in our stunning Satin Rosewood finish with the same magnetically attached grilles.
