Sound Should Be Heard, Not Seen

Sound Should Be Heard, Not Seen

Everyone loves the room-filling experience surround sound or distributed audio systems provide.  The downside? Not everyone wants to look at speakers or speaker grills scattered throughout the home like wall and ceiling acne.  Well, it was a concern until recently when manufacturers created the invisible speakers. These have become an amazing, aesthetically pleasing solution.

There are different brands and models, but all have the same basic features and benefits.  The front of the speakers look like drywall, so they’re speakers that are heard and not seen.  With a little bit of drywall mud and paint, these speakers become invisible. Invisible speakers provide an audio and visual experience that can inspire and engage interior designers and their clients immediately, as music can radiate from the wall or ceiling as if by magic. It is an important component in a carefully orchestrated ambiance immersion.  Much like an in-wall or in-ceiling speaker, you still need to run speaker lines back to your audio source, so make sure to contact an audio visual specialist to help with the install.

Installing these speakers consists of a 3-step process that could involve a couple different contractors.  Below, we offer a video created by Sonance that details the steps needed to install your invisible speakers.
