Live-Wall Begins Production

One of the biggest problems with in-wall speakers are the grills which stick out like a sore thumb. Interior designers hate the look especially in modern homes. Now there is a way to install in-wall speakers behind the actual drywall called live-wall.

LiveWall-Install.gifLive-Wall, a start-up loudspeaker design and manufacturing company, begins shipment of its first product, the LW1218, the industry's only point-source direct-radiating invisible loudspeaker system, according to the company.

Built similar to a traditional loudspeaker, the LW1218 is installed into drywall and covered with drywall mud and painted.

According to founder and engineer Ricardo Lazzari, "The Live-Wall design concept overcomes the sonic challenges facing today's hidden speakers, while blending seamlessly into a room's interior design."

Ira Friedman, president of Bay Audio, adds, "The Live-Wall speaker sounds as good as a traditional in-ceiling speaker. That's because it works like a regular speaker."

Live-Wall speakers use an oversized neodymium motor, 2" voice coil, and ultra-flat and stiff woven fiberglass diaphragm to reproduce music from 54 to 20,000 Hz. With power handling to 100w, and output to 102dB at 1 meter, the Live-Wall LW1218 has specs much like a traditional speaker.

Sized at 12 inches by 18 inches by 2.875 inches, installers can place the LW1218 in walls or ceilings. The product is weather-resistant for use in steam rooms, showers, and marine environments.

The LW1218 can be mounted in new construction (with an optional fire-rated backbox) or in retrofit installations. Finishing can be handled by a drywaller using mud, plaster, wallpaper, and paint.

Live-Wall will be marketed and sold by Bay Audio, as well as various sales partners throughout the US, including:

Jarmac Group
New Level Marketing
Lucas Sales

The LW1218 has a suggested MAP of $750 each.
The LW1218-BOX has a suggested MAP of $300 each.
