Why Invisible?
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.

How Does it Work?
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.

Design & Install Flexibility
With a range of different construction methods and finishing techniques globally, Amina uses two core-technologies to allow integration of invisible loudspeakers into any room. Both technologies are based on the principal of VPT loudspeaker design. Using an electromagnetic transducer, known as an exciter, to impart vibrational energy into a lightweight and stiff radiating panel. This vibrational energy radiates as high fidelity sound. While it might seem like VPT loudspeakers to some extent ‘reinvent the wheel’, there are a number of key design and acoustic benefits to using a vibrational flat panel loudspeaker over a more traditional design.

Acoustic Benefits
VPT loudspeakers provide full-bandwidth 180° dispersion and generate what is known as an incoherent-phase waveform. These dispersion characteristics allow the loudspeaker to produce smooth room-filling sound across the entire listening position. Whether used for low level background music, noise masking, foreground listening or home theatre application, Amina has a range of high fidelity invisible loudspeakers to match any scenario.

Construction Benefits
Consisting of a flat radiating panel and a low-profile exciter system, Amina loudspeakers provide the opportunity to integrate seamlessly with the design of the property. The flat section of a wall, ceiling, or piece of furniture can be used to generate room-filling sound while becoming completely invisible once installed. Part loudspeaker and part construction material, Amina Invisible Loudspeakers are designed to be just as much a rugged building material as they are a precise acoustic device. Designed for acoustic excellence, engineered for construction.

Two Core Technologies

Drywall Loudspeakers
With cavity walls and ceilings being a staple of the construction industry globally, Edge Series loudspeakers provide a high-performance solution in a lightweight and easy to install package where cavity walls and ceilings have been used. Designed to replace a small section of plasterboard/drywall, Edge Series loudspeakers have their perimeter filled, taped and feathered in the same way that tapered-board is installed and finished. The entire wall/ceiling can then be painted and decorated, allowing the loudspeaker to become fully invisible. The loudspeaker is only ever attached to the plasterboard itself and not the studwork, meaning that no special framing is required.

Fully Covered Loudspeakers
Where drywall building techniques are not being used, or for where there is a specialist covering material, Mobius Series loudspeakers provide a flexible sound solution for a range of design-led finishes. Engineered to work with the covering material, Mobius loudspeakers can be installed into a number of different materials or with a variety of finish options. Mobius loudspeakers provide ultimate installation flexibility. Covering options include wood, leather, natural stone veneer, wet plaster skim (cavity or solid block installation) or specialist finish such as acoustic or polished plaster.

Edge

The latest innovation in invisible speaker technology
A new revolutionary design for invisible loudspeaker technology, the Amina Edge offers smooth low frequency extension with increased power handling and sensitivity, resulting in a dynamic and engaging listening experience that has never before been heard from an invisible loudspeaker.

Building on the incredible performance of the Mobius Series, Amina Edge loudspeakers incorporate OptiDamping, OptiDrive and Reduced-Resonance Exciter technology, built into a plaster up-to design. Designed for use where there is no wet plaster skim (drywall), Edge loudspeakers have been designed much like a piece of tapered-edge plasterboard. Once filled, taped and painted, the loudspeaker becomes fully invisible. Amina Edge speakers can also be installed as post-plaster product (retrofit) where there is a full wet skim (Edge speakers should not be fully plastered over).

Mobius

Highly flexible design integration
The Mobius Series provides the greatest flexibility for interior design integration and installation of any invisible loudspeaker. Delivering incredible high frequency performance across the entire listening position, allowing for perfect reproduction with all the detail and clarity, no matter where in the space you are listening from.

Engineered to work behind a range of covering materials such as wet plaster skim (2mm), wood, leather or high pressure laminate, Mobius Loudspeakers offer the most flexible invisible audio solution available.
