Amina Technologies has announced a major new upgrade to their Evolution range of Invisible Loudspeakers which includes the addition of a Dual Input “single-stereo” to the line-up. These high performance, wide dispersion loudspeakers are designed to be used in ‘design critical’ high end residential interiors and commercial spaces in wall or ceiling orientations. Once skimmed with plaster, the products are rendered completely invisible in application. The “i” series Evolution products are incredibly flexible in that, uniquely, they can also be embedded behind many other surface materials including leather, wood veneers, acrylics and high pressure laminates.

Amina technologies spend more on R&D than ever before, with a great deal of focus on extensive computer modelling and simulation of magnetic circuits and panel vibration mechanisms. Over the last year Amina has been further refining its exciter designs and have incorporated the latest revised high power, low frequency optimised exciter into the Evolution i Series products.
Visually, the new Evolution “i” series products are, prior to installation, instantly identifiable as the rear chassis has been redesigned to expose all the exciters in each product, not just the nickel-plated high frequency optimised exciter as has been the case on the previous Evolution E series products. The chassis redesigns were undertaken to take full advantage of the improvements made to the high power exciters. This has resulted in reduced Harmonic distortion and a smoother bass response.
The first product to be released is the AIW550i, the upgrade to the popular AIW550E. The remainder of the established range will be upgraded over the next two months: the AIW150i and AIW350i replacing their “E” counterparts and both benefitting from the performance improvements described above. To complete the range will be the addition of the new AIW450i Dual Input model which replaces the AIW4X. The AIW450i is the ideal invisible speaker solution for smaller rooms such as bathrooms and dressing rooms where a single physical speaker is required to reproduce all the content from a stereo source. It features technologies developed for the E and i Series making it the best sounding invisible Dual Input speaker on the market.
The company’s current range topping AIW750E will also be receiving the i Series upgrade, further re-enforcing its position in the market as the best sounding invisible loudspeaker available.
The company will be officially launching the i-Series at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam from the 10th -12th February (Hall 1, P19). Alongside their audio demonstration of the AIW550i and ALF80 subwoofer, Amina will be displaying a selection of material finishes that can be used on their speakers. The idea being to inspire installers to consider the huge range of installation applications besides the usual plastered over finish.
