Stealth Acoustics Announces a New Generation of Invisible Speakers (13/9/2012)
New Stealth LRG series is thinner and better sounding Stealth Acoustics, a multiple award winner for its innovative totally invisible speakers announced pending release of its all new “G” series of invisible speakers for home audio, home theater and commercial applications.
Building upon their proven sound creation technologies of blending true cone woofers with directly coupled high and mid frequency stages into a flat front speaker that can be installed much like a piece of wallboard, Stealth claims their new invisibles are the best they have ever built.
“We’ve been constantly working for 10 years towards making great sounding invisible speakers as acceptable in the market as visible ones and this latest generation trumps anything we have built to date, including our award winning FX series”, said Steve Olszewski, vice president of Stealth Acoustics.
“Our new LRG series uses a newly designed low-profile high-power woofer for solid bass response down to 30 Hz and is a full inch thinner in depth than our previous models, allowing it to fit into wall or ceiling cavities as shallow as 2-1/2 deep.”
Stealth says in-wall speaker depth is important in many metropolitan markets where wall thicknesses have been reduced over the last few years. It also helps with installations into brick, concrete or block-wall constructions that may require carving out a space for the speaker. Stealth has also adjusted its speaker form factor slightly to mate more readily with US and international wallboard thickness, reducing installation time.
In addition, Stealth has completely redesigned the speaker face of its products to incorporate a new proprietary radiating surface Stealth has dubbed “Fidelity-Glasstm”, which is stronger, lighter and more sonically pleasing.
“We learned a long time ago that the sound quality of invisible speakers is very much about the face panel materials used, because the speaker face becomes the ‘cone’ of the speaker”, Olszewski continues.
“While we have made some internal changes to our driver set and crossovers, the real difference is the sound we get from our new Fidelity-Glasstm face material on the ‘G’ series. Our highs are now more delicate, overall response is much more pleasing and the bass output is very deep and solid.”
The new LRG series is scheduled for full release in Q4 2012.
