Stealth Acoustics is a division of Dimensional Communications Inc., a premier systems integration company based in Mount Vernon, Wash., that came up with a full-range invisible speaker solution.

Just as the name implies, invisible speakers are speakers that are installed in walls and ceilings, then are covered with joint compound and painted or papered over. These options are reportedly ideal in a church setting because they help keep architectural aesthetics intact.

Audio & acoustic options

Steve Olszewski, vice president of Stealth Acoustics, says one of the company’s products is a thin, wall-mountable motorized screen cover that utilizes a completely flat-front radiating surface. This surface can be finished with any custom artwork.

“It’s frame-able, movable art that rolls up like a window shade and covers a flat panel screen when not in use,” he says. “This is a good fit for a church setting [because] it allows a graphical representation of a church’s message.”

Another core product that works well in the house of worship setting is the company's Dimensional Display Systems -- a cost-effective, fixed-installation modular approach to video screens using high-definition LED tech rather than projectors and screens.

“Also germane to the church setting are our Image speakers, which are low profile, flat-front speakers that mount and flank next to a flat panel display to reinforce much better sound quality out of the TV,” Olszewski says. “The flat-front sealed box of an Image speaker can be painted and wrapped with any digital image that could be printed, such as the liturgy messaging of the church.”
