Harman’s JBL Professional loudspeaker line-up has been merged with Duran Audio’s world-class array of loudspeakers for unique installed sound technology applications.

JBL has now extended its comprehensive loudspeaker line-up by incorporating Duran Audio’s products into the JBL Professional brand. The move further strengthens JBL Professional’s standing as the optimal resource for installed audio loudspeakers of all varieties. The new products will be sold as the JBL Intellivox and JBL AXYS product series.

According to Rick Kamlet, Senior Market Manager for Intellivox Products, JBL Professional, Intellivox is already synonymous with beam steering and speech intelligibility with the products highly respected by consultants, installers and end-users throughout the world. Duran Audio’s developments in recent years go way beyond beam steering and their digital directivity technologies also include advanced Beam Shaping techniques that are unique in the industry.

Nick Screen, Sales Director, Duran Audio B.V adds that distributing their products through JBL Professional’s extensive sales and distribution organisation will open doors to many more customers around the globe.

Intellivox loudspeakers are known for delivering unmatched fidelity in some of the most challenging and prestigious venues around the world, where speech intelligibility is a paramount requirement. The addition of Duran Audio to Harman’s portfolio of commercial audio and lighting technology companies underscores Harman’s strategy to complement continued growth through targeted acquisitions in adjacent technology and product areas across all geographic and vertical markets.
