The Invisible Speaker
Stealth Acoustics – STX8
The Stealth Acoustics model STX8 is a two-way, full-range two channel stereo loudspeaker system that becomes completely invisible after installation. The loudspeaker has a rigid frame which attaches directly to standard structural framing without the need for special mounting brackets. The paintable active diaphragm face is a structurally modified three layer composite consisting of two layers of graphics grade paper with a foam core. The diaphragm is bonded to the frame of the speaker panel, creating an active area surrounded by a stable mounting area. Basic installation instructions are shown on a removable cover sheet that is to be removed before taping and finishing begins. The face of the panel has been pre-primed and is ready to receive finishing materials. The edges of the panel are tapered similar to the edges of gypsum wallboard, providing the room necessary for normal wallboard tape and joint compound to be used to feather the speaker seamlessly into the wall. The STX8 comes equipped to match 1/2” wallboard. Shim material is provided for thicker wallboard installations. On-site finishing options include latex paint, light wallpaper, fabrics and selected texture coats. There is no need for special vellums or other nonstandard wallboard finishing materials.
Why we like them:
- They allow our interior designer clients to work thier magic.
- Stealth Acoustics’ invisibility offers a powerful advantage over other loudpeakers, as they can be placed wherever they sound best, free of visual concerns that may conflict with other features in the room.
