June 2005—Retailing at $6,499/pair, the bi-amplified Hot House(www.hothousepro.com) ARM 265 has twin 6.5-inch woofers and a recessed dome tweeter in a rear-vented sixth-order alignment, coupled with a 150kHz signal path bandwidth. System response is 30 to 21.5k Hz (-3 dB). Amplifier output is rated at 250W RMS (x2) and signal-to-noise is 102 dB. The cabinets feature fully radiused edges finished on all sides in black, red or golden oak veneer.

July 2004—Hot House Professional Audio offers two surround monitoring packages, the ARM 265 5.1 system and PRM 165 5.1 system, geared toward use in medium/large and small/medium control rooms. The mid-field Hot House ARM 265 system offers flat-frequency, wide-bandwidth response provided by five bi-amplified ARM 265 monitors, an ASB 215 Active Sub-Bass system driven by the SBX Subwoofer Crossover/Controller and the Model Two Thousand High-Resolution Control Room Amplifier, a 1,200W/channel amp. The system's monitors are available in black, red or golden-oak veneer. According to Hot House designer Richard Rose, the PRM 165 surround monitoring system is “ruler-flat over nearly six of its eight-and-a-half octaves.” Along with five PRM 165 near-field monitors, three Model Four Hundred amplifiers and either an ASB 112 subwoofer with onboard power or an ASB 115 subwoofer/SBX Crossover Controller/M500HV amplifier combination are included. All cabinets are finished in matte black. The ARM 265 system lists for $29,999. The PRM 165 system with the ASB 112 subwoofer is $14,999 and increases to $19,999 with the ASB 115 subwoofer. Teflon wiring and full-isolation mount systems are included for both systems.

November 2002—The Hot House High-Output Series HOS 115 Modular Main Monitor is the primary building block in a new range of high-SPL, large-format discrete monitor packages. (The 137dB HOS 312 is also available.) Designed for use with Hot House ASB 115, ASB 215 or HOS 218 subs, SBX Crossover/Controller and Model Two Thousand amplifiers, the HOS 115 system provides 10.5 octaves of dynamic reproduction. The modular system can be configured in various ways, ranging from freestanding midfield with subwoofer as pedestal to large in-wall/multiple subwoofer installs. Frequency response is flat within 1.75 dB from 80 to 24k Hz and extends down to 15 Hz with the ASB subs. The HOS 115 is 18x24x20 inches (WxHxD). System pricing starts at $36,000 (four-cabinet), depending on sub and amplifier requirements.

December 2001—The ARM265 Surround System ($29,999) from Hot House Professional is a freestanding setup intended for medium to large-sized control rooms. The system's flat, wide bandwidth response is provided by five bi-amplified ARM265 Active Reference Monitors (250W high and low-frequency amps; -3 dB @ 30 Hz and 21.5k Hz), an ASB215 Active Sub Bass system (-1/2 dB @ 15 Hz) and a Model Two Thousand High-Resolution Control Room Amp (1,200W/channel). All necessary Teflon wiring and full-isolation mount system parts are included. The ARM265 reference monitors have input level, ultrahigh frequency and room-compensation frequency-adjustment switches, while the SBX Controller affords flexible subwoofer-alignment capabilities. The ASB215 sub system is driven by the SBX Subwoofer Crossover Controller and adjusts to compensate for varying room size and speaker placement. A slightly lower SPL version of the ARM265 Surround System for smaller listening environments, available for $22,999, substitutes a pair of PRM165s driven by a Model Four Hundred amp for the rear ARM265s and an ASB115 subwoofer.

June 2000—The Hot House Active Reference Monitor 265 is a bi-amplified mid-field speaker featuring twin 6.5-inch, long-excursion woofers and a 1-inch soft-dome tweeter in a rear-vented sixth-order alignment. The ported cabinet has rounded edges to reduce diffraction, and a series of rear panel switches facilitate gain and response adjustments along with an XLR/TRS input connector. Each power amp is rated at 250W per driver. The ARM 265’s rated frequency response is 30 to 20k Hz, ±1.75 dB, and the signal-to-noise ratio is rated at 102 dB. The ASB (Active Sub-Bass) 115 subwoofer is available. MSRP: $6,499 per pair. The ASB 115 is $3,499.
