Mount Vernon, WA, USA – Stealth Acoustics announces the release of three all-new metal back boxes for masonry applications, named the MBC series, to support the ever-improving ease of installation of their family of totally invisible loudspeakers.
With the release of the new MBC masonry boxes, specifically, models MBC-12, MBC-22 and MBC-30, all of Stealth’s invisible speakers can now be installed more easily into built-up or poured-in-place masonry walls and ceilings by utilizing a new “inside mount” configuration.

“’Inside mount’ means that instead of mounting our invisible speakers to stud framing rails flanking an enclosure, the entire speakers footprint mounts directly inside the dimensions of the box.” said Stealth’s engineering department. “This allows one to place the new MBC masonry boxes anywhere in the wall or ceiling without having to provide external rails, such as extra framing, to mount the speaker. Our metal back boxes also help with sound isolation and provide the proper internal volume for consistent speaker performance.”

According to Stealth, the MBC back boxes will save noticeable time and cost in a number of installations that use masonry construction. The MBC boxes also reduce installation time in “hat-channel” metal stud ceiling installations that are utilized in commercial or industrial construction, because the MBC box can attach to the structure where desired, without having to add in additional channel pieces to attach the speaker.

Stealth notes that they have a consistent form factor in their invisible speakers, in that all models are the same width (15-7/8” – 403mm) with each speaker’s height varying by model. Stealth’s invisible speakers come in three different heights, enabling the new MBC back box family to consist of only three model types. These three from factors support masonry installation of any of Stealth’s invisible speakers and subwoofers.

In addition to the new MBC masonry boxes, Stealth will retain the MBX series of UL listed metal boxes for stud construction; the MBA series of adjustable width metal boxes; and the BX series of MDF boxes for ceiling joist use in wood constructions. Stealth plans for UL and ASTM E119 ratings for the new MBC boxes and also other new installation accessories over the next period of time as they continually work towards reducing installation costs in utilizing their award-winning invisible speakers.

Attendees at ISE in Amsterdam January 31- February 2, 2012 can view the new MBC box and listen to all of Stealth’s speakers and amplifiers at stand 5S110 in Hall 5, or visit for more information.

Imagine the possibilities

Mount Vernon, WA, USA – Stealth Acoustics’ new Image II loudspeaker re‐defines speaker as art and art as speaker.

Stealth acoustics didn’t invent the idea of a loudspeaker looking like a work of art, but they say they have made the concept fully customizable, creative, flexible and in keeping with Stealth’s reputation for performance, excellent sounding. Their Image II on‐wall speaker system for music playback, flat panel reinforcement, surround sound or commercial applications, is designed to ultimately represent the unique and individual look which a home owner, architect or interior designer chooses. In this respect, the final look of the speaker is defined by the customer and their artistic goals, not by a manufacturer’s
limited finish options.

This incredible artistic flexibility starts by creating a speaker system that is ready to easily accept customization. Building upon their proven and award‐winning invisible speaker technologies, Stealth has created a low‐profile flat‐front on‐wall speaker that becomes the basis for customization. “We have hiresolution graphics manipulation ability and large format printing in‐house here at Stealth Acoustics.

This affords us the ability to support not only our own growing image library, but also to format and laminate onto our speaker any hi‐resolution image provided by a customer.” said Steve Olszewski, Stealth’s vice president. “The Image II speaker is such a great platform for artistic customization because we do not limit what image or paint that can be used over the product. Your art, or ours. Paint or custom wallpaper – even wood veneer ‐ real or graphics based, all of these and more are finish options.” Olszewski continues.

Stealth’s customization process securely laminates a durable UV protected image over the speaker’s sturdy flat front and sides in a studio wrap style, emulating the modern trend in unframed artwork that incorporates the side of the art piece as well as the front to create a 3‐dimensional work of art. Since Stealth has proven many materials as acceptable coverings for their acclaimed line of invisible speakers and the Image speakers use the same radiation surface technologies, performance of the speaker is maintained, even when the image is laminated over the box.

Stealth touts solid audio performance from the Image II speaker, with smooth extended high‐frequency response, Stealth’s renown LeverAcoustictm bass extension, excellent imaging and 170 degree dispersion.

Applications for Stealth’s Image II speaker are myriad. The device serves well for flat screen reinforcement, stereo listening, background / foreground music and even as surround sound speakers. Market opportunities exist in both the custom home and commercial markets; anywhere where art and style is a driver along with a good sounding speaker.

Attendees at ISE in Amsterdam January 31‐ February 2, 2012 can audition the Image II and all of Stealth’s speakers and amplifiers at stand 5S110 in Hall 5, or visit for more information.

Stealth Acoustics Shows Improved 255R Subwoofer Amplifier at ISE 2012

Mount Vernon, WA – Stealth Acoustics has taken its bestselling amplifier and given it a few new tweaks. The blue LED’s and meter ladder are now less bright (for in-view component stacking) and we’ve lightened the 2U form factor to make close-pack rack mounting a breeze. We left the rest alone, like the variable low pass filter (which can be bypassed for full-range amplification) and the phase switch, as well as keeping the 255R’s high-current output abilities and flexible IO connectivity. So, stack‘em, pack‘em and rack’em to build a cost-eff ective, reliable and very powerful amplification system (perfect for powering Stealth’s LR4 premium invisible speakers and Stealth’s B30 totally invisible subwoofers).

Sporting 350 watts of analog driven, high-current power at 4-ohms, and a variable low-pass filter, the 255R has a filter bypass switch to allow high-current full-range operation. Balanced XLR, unbalanced RCA and speaker-level inputs – all with matching pass-through output connectors – making integration into any system a breeze. Stealth will be using the 255R to power their B30 totally invisible subwoofers at ISE 2012 stand 5S110 – Hall 5 in Amsterdam


PRESS RELEASE: Stealth Acoustics LR4 Audiophile-Grade Invisible Speakers Make the Perfect Totally Invisible Home Cinema

Mount Vernon, WA, USA – A Home Cinema is a nice addition to any home, making a theatre‐like experience readily available when the mood strikes. Simply go to your theatre room, plop in a DVD or BluRay disc (or stream it from the Internet) and presto it’s movie time. With breathtaking display resolutions, 3‐D reproduction and large screen sizes, coupled to a 5.1 or greater surround sound playback system, one may be inclined to just stay at home to watch movies.

But, getting that home cinema system going, especially without building an expensively constructed and decorated dedicated theatre room can be a challenge. Building a dedicated theatre is fine if you have the space and resources, but what if you can’t manage a dedicated theatre and want your home to just be your home, whilst still providing a valid home movie experience, all without sacrificing the usual décor and feel of the room when not watching movies?

This is where state of the art system integration design and hidden technologies come into play. Your chosen home décor and lifestyle is unique and the components used in typical home theatres, especially speakers with their bulky boxes, obvious grills and sheer physical presence can compete with how you want your home to look ‐ you also don’t usually see speakers when looking at the screen in a Cinema. You can now make your home viewing environment great for movies and for your décor, as there are cost‐effective, very high‐quality invisible loudspeakers that completely disappear yet still provide a potent listening experience.

Stealth Acoustics, a premier US manufacturer of invisible speakers offers the LR4 totally invisible speaker system for home theatres. This audiophile‐quality, two‐panel, invisible home theatre speaker can be installed into walls or ceilings of 83mm depth or greater, finished with virtually any paint, wallpaper, veneer or other typical wall covering and provide playback quality in a surround sound system that satisfies even critical listeners, all without competing with room décor. The LR4’s full‐range invisible sound emanates magically into the room, creating accurate spatial placement and an impressive depth of realism, due to its extremely wide coverage angle and extended bass response. Add in Stealth’s B30 totally invisible subwoofers and you have a theatre room that looks just the way you want your home to look, yet sounds like a Cinema.

“The LR4 is a great home theatre solution, but is also an excellent choice for premium invisible sound anywhere in the home, including 2‐channel listening. Our patented Quad Balanced Midrange DriveTM driver set creates almost hemispherical radiation, but with a uniquely balanced angular distribution in the vertical, horizontal and depth sound stages, allowing for a very spacious listening experience.” said Steve Olszewski, Stealth’s vice president.

Designed to mate seamlessly into walls or ceilings, Stealth Acoustics invisible speakers are built from typical yet robust components, with a paintable flat‐front construct and an 83mm depth, allowing them to fit easily into new or remodel construction. Stealth speakers are available in various models to fit a wide range of applications and price points.

Attendees at ISE in Amsterdam January 31‐ February 2, 2012 can audition the LR4 and all of Stealth’s speakers and amplifiers at stand 5S110 in Hall 5, or visit for more information.
