GoldenEar Ships New Invisa Architectural Speakers
May 21, 2013
GoldenEar Technology is now shipping the new Invisa 7000 and Invisa MPX in both the U.S. and Canada, as well as in GoldenEar's 25 export markets.
The two new models combine with one of GoldenEar's powered subwoofers into a stealth built-in home theater with performance that rivals the finest freestanding systems, according to the company. The Invisa HTR 7000 and Invisa MPX expand GoldenEar's architectural offerings to four models, including the Invisa 525 and Invisa 650 introduced last year.
GoldenEar Invisa Series loudspeakers are engineered to deliver state-of-the-art sound quality from in-wall/in-ceiling speakers that are designed to blend with their surroundings and virtually disappear. GoldenEar’s Invisa Series was first introduced with the Invisa 650, Invisa 525, followed now by the Invisa Home Theater Reference (HTR) 7000 and the Invisa MPX models.
All four models incorporate a magnetically attached grille-covered/hidden flange construction that helps to make them virtually invisible. A tremendous amount of work has gone into the acoustical engineering and voicing of the Invisa Series speakers in order to deliver the highest sound quality possible in an architectural format. All four models also incorporate a High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeter similar to that used in GoldenEar’s Triton towers.
Invisa HTR 7000 In-Ceiling Home Theater Reference Loudspeaker: The Invisa HTR 7000 is designed for use as a ceiling-mounted main front stage left-, right- or center-channel speaker in high-quality home theater and music systems, as well as for use as a side or rear surround speaker. It has a flat, round; magnetically attached micro-perf grille that covers the mounting flange for an attractive, nearly “invisible” look. An optional square grille is available. The drivers are mounted at precisely calculated angles so that they acoustically align directly at the normal listening position for imaging, superior frequency response, clarity and precise focus. The driver complement combines the same 7-inch high-definition cast-basket driver used in the Aon 3, with a GoldenEar signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter.
A complex crossover network, with a high-frequency equalization switch, assures perfect blending. In order to achieve open, boxless, three-dimensional imaging that appears to come from across the front wall rather than the ceiling, great care has been taken to minimize deleterious diffraction effects as well as to optimize wave-launch into the room. This is achieved by combining GoldenEar's FocusField Technology with a unique Non-Periodic Waveform (NPW) Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch construction.
