The importance of the final placement, installation and finishing is key!
Invisible speakers are a great way of producing superb sound quality without the need to have speakers on show. Requiring skill and precision to install by an experienced AV installer, they can transform your home’s audio experience to something quite magical.
“Increasing demand for integrated lifestyle-technology combined with the associated ‘aesthetic-clutter’ that it brings has led to a rise in hidden technology solutions. With 30% of brain power dedicated to visual stimulus and only 2% dedicated to audio, it is clear that the way we ‘see’ the sound has a huge impact on the way we perceive it. By removing the aesthetic aspect, it allows complete focus on the audio art-form as it was intended.”
Delicately covered with a layer of plaster and paint, invisible speakers become part of the wall whilst delivering quality audio. Through a system of small vibrations, sound is transmitted across the speaker panel, thus resulting in a 180-degree ‘audio arc’ that not only provides volume, but also the same level of sound whether you’re next to the speaker or on the other side of the room.
There is, however, a myth that invisible speakers are limited in their audio quality due to the technology being covered in a layer of plaster or other material. This is simply not true as the speakers really do need to be heard in person to fully appreciate the high clarity of sound that they produce.Book a demonstration with our team who will be more than happy to play any music of your choice so that you really can appreciate superb invisible sound quality.
It’s important to stress that the placement, installation and finishing of such speakers in multi-room audio and surround sound environments requires a considerable amount of skill and experience and should always be in the hands of a professional. Take a look at the video clip below to see a great example of the process involved……
