Invisible speakers are no longer an audio compromise in search of aesthetic approval, claims the maker, and with growing justification.
The LRx85 is the latest generation of high-performance, expert-grade invisible speakers from Stealth Acoustics, delivering sound quality, frequency response and output levels usually reserved for only the best visible speakers.
Now, says the creator, installers can bring top-shelf audio performance to their customers without any visible presence of speaker boxes or unsightly speaker grills.
Stealth’s LRx85 premium invisible speaker system, available in both passive and active versions, allows for impressive invisible audio in the most critical applications for home cinema, listening rooms and high-performance distributed audio.
This two-panel system, which replaces a segment of a flat wall or ceiling with a paintable, non-penetrable flat front speaker system, incorporates five mid-range/high frequency drivers mounted in a unique dual-D’Appolito alignment for noticeable improvement in left/right panoramas and depth of sound stage.
Below the mid/high panel is a separate, totally invisible bass frequency panel with two high-power 8in cone woofers behind Stealth’s FidelityGlass flat front radiator.
Together, the two invisible panels create a seamless speaker system covering the full audio spectrum from 35Hz-18kHz. 300W power handling provides the robust dynamic range required for realistic movie sound and impactful music reproduction.
For even greater output and performance, the LRx85 is available in an active bi-amplified version, the LRx85ACT, which comes complete with a pre-tuned and optimised dual channel Stealth SA2400MKII DSP amplifier to create a premium single-channel system, which can be used as building blocks to create invisible home cinemas from 5.1 to 100-channel plus Dolby Atmos rooms.
Stealth says its invisible speaker technology provides smooth, near hemispherical coverage, making every seat in the house right in the sweet-spot. In Atmos systems, the LRx85 provides the locational reference and coverage envisioned for immersive listening.
Installers can audition the LRx85 invisible speaker at ISE 2019 at Stealth Acoustics Stand 5-R96. The brand is available in the UK from Genesis Technologies UK.
