P38 Loudspeaker

The P38 shares much in common with the P48, except that its design was specifically targeted for in-wall and on-wall applications. It is not available in a freestanding version. The P38 is not a line source like some of our larger models, but is instead a point source loudspeaker. The vast majority of loudspeakers available in the world are point sources, meaning that they radiate their sonic energy outward in an expanding sphere, as though from a point in space.

Sharing the same driver technology, it is timbre matched and can be combined with other Sage Series in-wall, on-wall and freestanding models as desired for the specific installation. Slim and elegant in design, the P38 can virtually disappear on a wall, intended to either match the “mounted,” on-wall design of a flat panel video display, or to be installed flush in the wall itself. Both versions are constructed entirely from machined and extruded aircraft grade aluminum. The clear anodized interlocking trim bezels and matte charcoal colored cabinet of the on-wall version convey an exquisite balance of industrial design and build quality unique among consumer loudspeakers. The narrow aspect P38i in-wall design becomes one with the wall, via its paintable grill and bezel, while its all aluminum chassis and integral back box enclosure ensure optimal and consistent performance regardless of mounting environment.

Four of the same proprietary high operating pressure woofers used throughout Sage Series models mate with a unique MTM Planar Magnetic Driver array for the midrange and treble. The MTM array provides the same level of transparency, detail, and instantaneous dynamics as the 24-inch Planar Magnetic driver used in the L150 (in multiples), but is a much smaller package optimized for the space requirements associated with the P38 and other more compact Sage Series models. The MTM array incorporates a groundbreaking 2-inch planar magnetic tweeter and two 2-inch midrange drivers. This combination of unique transducers is responsible for this series’ characteristic transparency, detail and instantaneous dynamics, extending all the way down to 650 Hz.

The P38 sonically presents itself in a room with the convincing authority normally associated with much larger loudspeakers. Employing planar magnetic drivers for the majority of its output, it is incredibly detailed and dynamic, and does not suffer from the sonic compression that plagues many conventional loudspeaker designs. The P38 provides stunning, lifelike dynamic music reproduction that belies its slim profile and compact design. Capable of the volume and dynamics normally associated with a live performance, the P38 can fill a large space with ease. The P38m and P38i architectural loudspeakers deliver high definition sound that is a perfect complement to high definition video, while opening up new worlds of sonic performance for your musical enjoyment.
