Triad's New Invisible Loudspeaker Series
The speaker's flat surface can be plastered over with a 2mm skim coat of plaster and paint


Next month, custom solution provider Triad Speakers, Inc. will begin delivering dealers its DesignerSeries invisible speakers. When installed, the speaker's flat surface can be plastered over with a 2mm skim coat of plaster and paint, texture or wallpaper and becomes completely invisible.

The transducer, which functions much like a magnet and voice coil in a traditional loudspeaker system, is attached to the aluminum honeycomb core which serves as the vibrating element to generate sound waves. The principle is similar to that of a piano or guitar wherein the strings are amplified by the soundboard. The panels require only 25.5 mm of mounting depth; they are designed to fit easily between the wall studs in typical home construction.

The DesignerSeries consist of three monaural and two stereo versions. The models use either one (small rooms), two (small/medium rooms) or four transducers (large rooms) each per panel providing 95, 99 and 105 dB maximum loudness respectively. All are capable of frequency response from 100Hz - 20 kHz and must be used with dual channel analog 120Hz filters with limiters. For deeper bass response, a Triad InWall Subwoofer may be added. MSRP for the monaural versions (small, medium and large rooms) are $550, $750 and $1,050 (each). MSRP for the stereo versions (small and medium rooms) are $740 and $1,040 (each).
