Invisible Speakers in BASWA Acoustic Plaster
Audio that works seamlessly with the BASWA acoustic plaster system
Increasing demand for integrated lifestyle-technology combined with the associated ‘aesthetic-clutter’ that it brings has led to a rise in hidden technology solutions. With 30% of brain power dedicated to visual stimulus and only 2% dedicated to audio, it is clear that the way we ‘see’ the sound has a huge impact on the way we perceive it. By removing the aesthetic aspect, it allows complete focus on the audio art-form as it was intended.
With the invention of VPT (Vibrational Panel Technology), Amina has been able to take the common loudspeaker design and replace the cone with a flat panel. Instead of moving forwards and backwards visibly like a typical cone design, a VPT panel uses small vibrations to generate sound which can be heard but not seen. This allows for seamless integration of a loudspeaker into any wall, ceiling or flat decorative panel with zero visual impact.
Designed to replace a small section of the BASWA Acoustic panel, Mobius Series loudspeakers are installed into an installation platform, then plastered over with BASWA Fill and then the entire surface is covered with a full coating of BASWA Base/Fine/Top. The speaker then becomes fully invisible.
The loudspeaker is only ever attached to the BASWA Installation panel itself and not the framing above, meaning that no special framing is required.
