BOGEN SM4T
« on: October 16, 2013, 07:15:15 PM »
Has anyone used these speakers? I am wondering how they sound, They would be used for back ground music in a day spa. Basically one in each massage room a couple in the halls and a couple in lobby.


Any input?

Not something I would consider for music. With a LF response of 125Hz about all they are good for is voice paging, unless you like the $9.95 Korsonic* sound.

Take a look at the JBL Control contractor lineup and pick something from there. I would look at the Control 16 C/T. You do know that that Bogen is a 70 volt speaker.

*Anthony, you are too young to remember EJ Korvets and the Chinese made $9.95 AM transister pocket radio that was called the Korsonic that they sold back in the early 60's. As I remember they sounded like a telephone receiver.

Thanks Hal, I will check out the JBL's.  I know  they are 70V.   This is for a day spa, they want a total of 7 zones. 1 speaker in each room, 3 in the hallways, and 2 in the lobby.  They are only looking for ambient background music, I figure a 70V system is the way to go.

Thanks again

Absolutely an 70 volt system is the way to go. And you don't want stereo! (I see two speakers in the lobby, and two usually means somebody is thinking stereo. But then again you have single speakers too so I guess you know that.)

When you say zones, what are you doing there?

Its a day spa, so they want a volume control in each of the Massage rooms.  One for the lobby and waiting area, and one for the hallways.  Its going to be a single source for music,  they just want to be able to control the volume in multiple rooms.  I was thinking one speaker in each room, one in the lobby, then 3 should cover the hallways.
