Invisible Speakers for Home Audio that’s Heard, Not Seen

Invisible speakers delivers unbelievable sound quality that emanates from the wall or ceiling, without any visible signs of a speaker. The space is filled with breathtaking music that seemingly comes from nowhere.  Invisible speakers are speakers that get installed in walls and ceilings, then are covered with sheetrock and painted or papered over, and yes, they can sound great.

If you ask an interior decorator about loudspeakers, he or she will tell you they should be heard and not seen. Maybe some home theater enthusiasts and audiophiles would disagree, but a lot of people hold the opinion that speakers in a whole housse audio system should be as hidden as possible. Imagine if we could actually have invisible speakers?

Well we can show you the solution to this age old problem.  Speakers can be invisible, at least in the strictest sense, meaning they’re in the room, you just don’t see them.

There are two main ways to make a speaker actually invisible, and both involve putting it behind something else.  The first, and most ingenious way, is with a kind of in-wall speaker that actually sits completely flush against the drywall (or other wall material), and then gets plastered over and painted so the speaker becomes 100 percent a part of the wall—-no visible grill.  The other way is to hide it behind something that is visible, such as a piece of art or behind a mirror.

Invisible speakers can be used for whole-house music systems or home theaters and media rooms.  They can be found in luxury residences, art galleries, museums, restaurants and premier retail boutiques. They are also used exclusively world-wide by Louis Vuitton, Prada, Gucci, Miu Miu, Fendi and Dior!

At our showroom, we can demo both the invisible speakers behind the walls, and we have TV's and speakers hidden behind pictures and/mirrors.

That’s no Harry Potter trick anymore. Speakers can be invisible, at least in the strictest sense, meaning they’re in the room, you just don’t see them.

The other way is to hide it behind something that is visible, such as a piece of art or acoustically transparent wall fabric, which we’ll tackle in another article.

Oh, there’s another way—you can conceal the speakers as something else. Several companies now make LED smart bulbs that also double as Bluetooth speakers. You can set up one or more in a room or around the house to provide music and shed some lights. You can read about those herehere and here.

Invisible speakers can be used for whole-house music systems or home theaters and media rooms.

For this article, let’s look at a few in-wall invisible speakers, perfect for people who want sound everywhere, without having to look at speakers.

Sonance IS4 Invisible Speakers

The Sonance IS4 speakers each feature a 4-inch squar planar diaphragm tweeter driven by a 1-inch voice coil. That’s matched with a 17-square inch mid-range planar driver and a and a planar diaphragm woofer. Sonance Invisible Series features 170˚ of dispersion, which means the sound is spread out wider from the speaker, delivering even volume levels and better sound quality throughout the entire space. The speaker’s 2-inch depth makes them easy to install in a variety of walls. Back boxes are available. The invisible speaker’s paper surface is ready for covering with plaster, joint compound, paint and wallpaper. $1,600/pair. More info here.
