Lithe Audio has designed a new passive low-profile ceiling speaker to provide a solution for installers who are looking for slim speakers to fit where space is an issue – without compromising on sound quality. Hitting a sweet-spot between depth and quality is a challenge when designing ceiling speakers.
At 67mm deep, the Lithe Audio IP44-rated passive low-profile speaker is ideal for wherever a ceiling cavity may be slim – such as bathrooms, garden rooms, dropped ceilings, pitched roofs – and delivers excellent sound quality, says its creator.
The speaker is a lightweight 1.04kg, with a cut-out diameter of 210mm, and comes with a frameless 230mm magnetic grille which can be painted to blend into the ceiling colour and easily removed for cleaning.
“We’re already getting positive feedback from installers about this speaker,” says Amit Ravat, Co-Founder of Lithe Audio: “They’ve been looking for a quality solution to installing speakers in thin ceiling cavities, and as designers in this area we’re happy to be able to provide a solution that delivers slim speakers without compromising on sound quality.”
As with all Lithe Audio ceiling speakers, the maker says it’s easy to install and looks attractive with or without the grille.
The new model is available from this March.
