Why are interior designers choosing invisible speakers?

What if you could provide your home with its own soundtrack? With in-ceiling speakers, you can!

We work closely with interior designers, and we have noticed an increase in their interest in In-ceiling speakers for their clients' lifestyle technology combined with a preference for the aesthetic of decluttering. Imagine walking into your ocean-front home and seeing a clean crisp fresh space without any harsh lines on the ceiling. With the high demand for invisible speakers, we offer multiple brands which allow us to support a variety of budgets and styles designers may prefer for their vision.

3 unique perks of a low voltage electrical installation

Amina has set the bar for invisible speakers with the inventions of VPT (Vibrational Panel Technology), Amina has been able to take the standard speaker design and replace the cone with a flat panel. This allows the sound to use small vibrations to generate sound that can be heard and not seen. Compared to the typical cone, which can visibly show it moving forward and backward. This modification allows for seamless integration of any loudspeaker onto any surface.

Stealth Acoustics is an American-made product we offer that can be a perfect fit for a private home theater. Within their model LR8G it is a two-way, full-range loudspeaker system that becomes completely invisible after installation. This brand can also be covered by wallpaper or fabric which interior designers enjoy keeping options open for their creative design.

Technology to deliver an even, balanced sound experience of Sonance Invisible speakers is designed to disappear and offer 170 degrees of dispersion in all directions. Within the Sonance speaker, it has motion flex technology which is engineered for an unparalleled acoustic speaker. An air flex woofer is a glass fiber woofer coupled to an acoustically inert diaphragm to move a pocket of air like a piston for powerful bass.

Imagine walking into your living room with the beautiful Florida Ocean Front views, and the sound of your favorite song flowing throughout the space. Whole home audio makes it simple. But if you aren’t a fan of the appearance of a bulk speaker hanging from the wall James Loudspeaker offers small aperture series. These speakers give a look that’s aesthetically pleasing with fixtures and were engineered with the focus of minimizing their visual presence for interior or landscape designs.

Offering an array of speakers allows us to stay diverse and not have to try and shove a speaker in a home that’s not desired. During the consultation process, we enjoy discussing the vision of the project and its overall goal and delivering the right fit for the client.
