Live-Wall Invisible Speakers

Review - IAV LightSpeakers - Wireless Multi Room Audio System

Since HomeToys.com began over 15 years ago we have always had a passion for products we feel are innovative, creative and are helping move this AV industry forward. When I saw the press release for the launch of the IAV LightSpeaker come across my email a few months back I was intrigued. Basically this is a self-contained wireless speaker and lighting system where each speaker fits into your standard 5" & 6" pot lights with standard Edison sockets, no speaker wiring needed.

Home Theater in a Box Redefined by WiSA Systems

Home Theater in a Box systems are either dedicated, limited feature systems, or often the lowest-end receiver and speaker combination a manufacturer has to offer. These are attractive to many, as an "easy" route to sound that exceeds those tinny speakers in the ever-slimming TV. The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA™) Association promises a more practical, scalable, wireless- yet-audiophile-quality solution.

The Wireless Speaker & Audio Association

The Wireless Speaker & Audio Association's remit is to advance the adoption of wirelessly transmitted, interference-free high-definition (HD) surround-sound audio in the home theater environment. We spoke to President, Jim Venable about the organization and the standard.

In Wall Speaker Placement: Five Simple Rules For Great-Sounding 5.1

It's classic Mars and Venus: one of you craves the thrill of 5.1 surround-sound in movies, music - even many television shows today. But the other half of your relationship is definitely not excited by the idea of five large speakers in the room. Enter in wall speakers, a sleek option for great sound without taking up any floor space. Modern in wall speakers aren't restricted to just white anymore - you can get them in paintable finishes that help them really blend into the room. Paint the speakers before you install them for the best finish.

Introducing WiSA™, the Wireless Speaker & Audio Association

In traditional home theater surround sound systems, there is a receiver wired to 6, 7, or 8 different speaker cabinets. You look at your living room and you start to imagine where you could put the subwoofer(s) and where the surround speakers might go. Typically, the choice is constrained by cable runs. Not anymore with WiSA.

Speaker Impedance, Your Amplifier And You.

In the audio world, simple spec numbers rarely adequately describe real-world performance. When a speaker is specified as being "8-Ohms," that is really an oversimplification of a complex issue. A speaker's impedance is different at different frequencies!

Interview - Procella Audio

Procella came into the marketplace with a high-performance speaker system created not in a garage but as a solution for the European headquarters of one of the top audio companies in the world. Taking basic designs that come from a pro audio perspective that includes a strong cinema background, and seasoning them with studio/audiophile sensibilities, these speakers take a 'top down' approach to home theater, bringing the best performance characteristics of reference cinema systems into the home. Procella's scalable concept enables enthusiasts to create systems capable of reproducing the full dynamic range of 96/24 recordings in any room size from a living room to a 40 seat cinema.

If One Sub is Good, Are Two Better?

My colleagues and friends who have large vaulted-ceiling rooms all run dual subs. Taste plays a role as well. If you like your music or soundtracks really loud and deep, go for two subs. If you have a huge room and you want really loud sound and deep bass, then look at physically larger subwoofers with bigger amplifiers.
