AIM Series 2 breaks new ground by adapting technology that was once only utilized in large sound reinforcement experiences. By incorporating multiple tweeters in a line array, AIM Series 2 delivers focused high frequencies farther into the listening area than standard tweeter configurations so that listeners may enjoy a larger sweet spot. Complementing the ARC Tweeter Array is our updated WavePlane technology that acts as an acoustic lens, focusing the high frequency audio energy into the listening environment for a cleaner, wider, and richer sound. But it’s the enhanced aim-ability of the AIM Series 2 that presents all new options for sound design—from home theater to whole home audio. Simply put, every element of the AIM Series 2 has been re-crafted for heightened aesthetics and heightened sound.

About AIM Series 2:
More revolutionary than evolutionary, SpeakerCraft AIM Series 2 has been 100% re-crafted to support sophisticated installations, demanding sonic performance, and advanced object-based surround audio platforms such as Dolby Atmos, Auro-3D, and DTS:X. The re-crafting effort addresses every aspect of the speaker, from front to back, resulting in a sound solution you’ll have to hear to believe.
Defies All Conventions And Industry Norms
AIM Series 2 adapts technology that was once only utilized in large sound reinforcement experiences, and introduces the adjustable pivoting ARC Tweeter Array that is nothing short of groundbreaking. By incorporating multiple tweeters in a line array, AIM Series 2 delivers focused high frequencies farther into the listening area than standard tweeter configurations. The ARC Tweeter Array lowers the crossover point to increase the sound pressure level at the critical mid-range frequencies so that acoustically, listeners enjoy a much larger sweet spot.
A Bolder, Richer Sound
Complementing the ARC Tweeter Array is the updated WavePlane technology that acts as an acoustic lens, focusing the high frequency audio energy into the listening environment for a cleaner, wider, and richer sound. Ordinary speakers only sound their best when you are directly underneath them but the WavePlane assures optimal high frequency dispersion throughout the listening area.
Taking Sound To New Levels
The enhanced aim-ability of the AIM Series 2 presents new options for sound design—from home theater to whole home audio. More than ever, sound can be directed to a specific section of a room, angled toward a seating area or wherever an audio impact is desired.
Optimal Sound Dispersion
As a final touch, the AIM 2’s Vortex Eliminators disperse sound as it reaches the outer edge of the speaker baffle. Acoustically, this moves the speaker closer to the surface of the ceiling, improving the overall dispersion of sound and eliminating any tunnel effect found in lesser ceiling speakers.
Longer Lasting, More Stable Installations
While the front of the speaker gets most of the deserved attention, the back of this speaker delivers game-changing technologies as well. The all-new design of the AIM Series 2 leverages Acoustic Isolation Technology to decouple the speaker housing from the surrounding materials, providing a more acoustically repeatable installation and improving sound transference to the listening area by eliminating structural resonance created by the surrounding wall or ceiling. The minimized resonance transfer is achieved using co-molded, lower density compounds, and help set the AIM Series 2 apart from any speaker in the industry. You hear the speaker as it is meant to sound—not colored by the resonance of the material on which it is mounted.
Simply put, every element of the AIM Series 2 has been recrafted for heightened aesthetics and heightened sound.
