The G7 box is a compact 2-way 120W power system incorporating a high performance 6.5″ carbon fibre woofer and a 1″ neodymium tweeter. It is assembled in a reinforced ABS enclosure and is intended to be one of the best choices for installations where good looks and sound quality are required.

For Amate Audio we developed in 3D the hardware engineering, aesthetics and usability collaborating very closely with the acoustics and electronics departments.
The collaboration started in November 2016 and since then we have developed more than 20 products together.
With Amate audio we have developed this product considering the high competitiveness of contract products in today’s sound market. It has been designed around three main characteristics: versatility of accessories and options for all situations, high acoustic performance and aesthetics that differentiate it from the competition.
We focused the project so that the G7 box would reflect the technology it contains on the outside, with sharp angles and sharp edges. The geometry also had to be rigid enough to withstand the pressure generated by the bass transducer. The structure could not be altered by the 120W or the weather.
Also, the tweeter had to distribute the treble evenly in two positions and come out of the two-part mould in front of it without adding any extra parts. We performed a thorough treble analysis by printing six test models.
Finally we had to think about how to approach the different complements that a speaker of these characteristics should have; different wall supports, complements for 100 volts lines, waterproofing, watertightness, no grill… many factors affecting the design andthe interaction of these elements.
All the work has been done with SolidWorks 3D, integrating the standard parts of the suppliers and achieving the complete manufacturability of the product. The constant collaboration with Amate Audio’s R&D department and their investment in printing and testing has been a key factor in the G7’s construction success.
Amate Audio expects to have a very good impact on the contract market with this product, a very competitive sector.
The compact 120W 2-way system incorporating a high performance 6.5″ carbon fibre woofer and a 1″ neodymium tweeter together with the G7’s generous litre capacity make it a product with high acoustic performance and directivity.
The bass reflex tuning further enhances the bass to work independently of its combination with a subwoofer.
From the installer’s perspective, a remarkable feature of the G7 design is that both standard low-impedance and 100V line applications are possible with the same speaker. By simply unscrewing the rear connector plate and replacing it with a T-G7 transformer plate, the G7 can be used for 100V line applications with switchable power configurations of 5W / 10W / 20W / 40W.
The person who chooses the Amate Audio G7 box will be able to install it on the wall by means of a strip that is included in the product allowing you to direct it in a vertical or horizontal axis.
However, the G7 can be adapted to Amate Audio’s SP-6 wall bracket which allows two-axis orientation with multiple angles. A simple finish and a more sophisticated one for all applications.
One of the most important premises in this type of product is that it can be easily installed. Normally they are installed in elevated places with difficult access and requiring a ladder. This means that the installation operator needs his hands free to hold on and make the connections. The G7 box with the SP-6 bracket makes the installation very simple as the installation can be done with just one movement. The operator makes the connection and then simply hangs it up and secures it. This reduces the installation time and increases the safety of the operator.
