Extraordinary High-Performance Speakers that Virtually Disappear in Your Room!
Extraordinary Home Theater Speakers That Disappear
These remarkable speakers were specifically designed to bring you the world-famous sonic performance of Definitive's free-standing speakers in easy-to-install built-in configurations. All models in Definitive's Disappearing™ In-Wall series feature near-invisibility thanks to their small area, hidden flange design, and low profile micro-perf grilles. They are as easy to install as traditional flanged flush-mount speakers, and don't require custom sheetrock/spackle skills to install and look practically invisible.
The LCR 5.5LCR has been optimized for use as stereo Left/Right/Center front stage speakers while the matching DI 5.5BPS is a Bipolar technology speaker ideal for surround channel use. Together these models realize the dream of premium performance in a practically undetectable built-in home theater system. All models in the DI Series share the same accurate sonic signature so you can mix and match any combination of models to meet your exact application. For example, you can use DI 5.5LCR for L&R and center and a pair of DI 5.5R as in-ceiling surrounds and achieve excellent seamless performance.
Definitive's Disappearing In-Wall Speakers Just May be the "Holy Grail" of Built-in Speakers
You want great sound everywhere in your home, but you may not always have room for or want the visual intrusion of free-standing speakers. Built-in flushmount speakers seem to be the answer but in practice they don't exactly disappear in the room, in fact many "in-wall" speakers call attention to themselves and create friction between your decorator and your audiophile sensibilities. Worse yet, most built-in speakers fall short on the performance end as well. Would Definitive allow you to suffer with bad sound? Oh no, no, no!
Definitive's Advanced Technologies Mean Better Sound for You
The Disappearing In-Wall models feature Definitive's most advanced technologies such as Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) mid/woofer drivers and pivoting Pure Aluminum dome tweeters for spectacular audio performance far beyond traditional flush-mount speakers.
Definitive's exclusive Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) driver technology permits these new flush mount speakers to deliver more bass output and dynamic range than larger drivers. For example, the DI 5.5LCR's two 5-1/4" drivers have the output, bass and dynamics of a 8" traditional speaker.
With a pivoting 1" Pure Aluminum dome tweeter featuring a specially shaped housing that avoids the diffraction distortions of traditional post-mounted tweeters, and a sophisticated adjustable crossover network, the Disappearing In-Wall models deliver the kind of lifelike sonic performance and broad even dispersion that have made Definitive Technology the most highly reviewed speaker brand in the USA.
Great Sound for Everyone in the Room
We've engineered DI Series speakers to disperse sound over a very wide area so that the sound is well-balance and natural regardless of where you are relative to the speakers. BDSS technology drivers, aimable tweeters as well as the specially countoured and textured AeroRing™ around the driver all contribute to the wide angle dispersion and superior coverage capability of the DI Series models.
