Jamo’s A400 series of lightweight flat panel friendly speakers are part of their aesthetic range of “designer speakers”, and will be available in the USA starting in February. Like the top of the range A70 series, the A400 series speakers were designed by Smedegaard and Weis, using extruded polymer cabinets rather than aluminum for more affordable price points. The A400 series consists of the A407 floorstander, the A405 and A402 satellites, the A400 center channel speaker and the A400 subwoofer.
The A407 uses a 1” woven textile dome tweeter and four 3” mid-bass drivers. The A405 satellite is a smaller version of the A407, using the same tweeter and two 3” mid-bass drivers, and it can be wall/table/stand mounted. The A402 satellite is the smallest member of the series. It uses a single coaxial 3” driver and a .75” tweeter mounted on a separate plastic “bridge.” The A400 center speaker is essentially an A405 turned sideways, designed for shelf or wall mounting. The A400 subwoofer is a compact ported subwoofer with an 8” woofer and a 200 watt amplifier. The A400 speakers will be available in 3, 5, and 5.1 channel packages, with prices ranging from $499 to $1,199.
