Stealth Acoustics has evolved its line of invisible speakers with the introduction of its on-wall Image III range, to be unveiled to the European custom installation sector at Integrated Systems Europe (Hall 5 R-112, RAI, Amsterdam, 10-12 February 2015). Designed to blend with any home interior décor, the Image III is a range of fully customisable, super-thin, high quality speakers that can be finished in a wide array of options to match any chosen design scheme.
Stealth has taken its award-winning invisible speaker technology and fitted them into a 2.5-inch on-wall speaker package to complement flat-screen TV displays and ensure that on-wall speakers remain as discrete as possible in media room projects. With its completely flat-front, radiating surface, the Image III becomes a platform for artistic creation. Supplied in neutral Satin White, it can be finished with paint or wallpaper to ensure the speakers are a perfect match for the home’s interior. Alternatively, Stealth’s Image Wrap™ technology can be used to print a selected image or piece of artwork and create a professional, factory-laminated, studio-wrap over the speaker.
High quality audio performance is another key benefit of the Stealth Image III. These speakers offer smooth high-frequency response, solid bass extension and excellent imaging. The surface mount loudspeaker is a two-way, full-range unit, producing frequencies from 40Hz to 20kHz, and a sound dispersion of 170 degrees in both horizontal and vertical planes. The loudspeaker system has a sensitivity of 80 dB, 1 watt / 1 meter, with a capacity of 200 watts RMS according to Electronic Industries Association (EIA) standard RS-426-A. The Image III has been created with a totally sealed frame, with no grills or any other openings that could allow air to penetrate the device.
The Trilogy option allows the Image III to be integrated with Stealth’s CoverArt retractable covering solution for screens to create a totally concealed audio visual set-up, when not in use. In this set up, the Image III creates a unique “trilogy” of images, panning across speakers and the TV screen.
The Stealth Image III is quick and easy to install. It can be mounted on the wall within minutes due to built-in key slots located on the rear side of the speakers, attached with hollow wall anchors included with the product. It can be installed right out of the box or finished on site to match virtually any décor imaginable.
“We are delighted to be launching the Stealth Image III in Europe at ISE 2015,” says Steve Olszewski, vice president of Stealth Acoustics. “Modern flat screen displays have great pictures but poor sound. Sound bars add bulk to the screen and place even more technology in the face of the viewer, so having an aesthetically pleasing, artistic speaker like Image III is a smart choice. It’s a great solution for installers seeking to blend on-wall speakers within the interior design scheme, without compromising on audio performance. ”
