It could be the best of circumstances to be a manufacturer in a crowded market now that the economy is starting to pick up and installers are once again finding work.

That’s what the start-up manufacturer Live-Wall is hoping for now that its begun production of its direct-radiating invisible speaker system.

The company’s new LW-1218 is said to install in a similar fashion as a standard in-wall loudspeaker, but it differs in that installers can mud the speaker in and paint over the speaker to create an invisible speaker solution.

According to the company, the 12-inch x 18-inch x 2.875-inch speaker incorporates a neodymium motor 2-inch voice coil and flat-fiberglass diaphragm that helps the speaker produce a frequency range of 54Hz to 20kHz.

Bay Audio distributes the speaker, which is said to have a sensitivity rating of 102dB, and the company adds the weather-resistant speaker can be installed nearly anywhere, including spaces such as walls, ceilings, soffits.
