Behind Every Good Speaker

… lies a good design! While many in-wall / in-ceiling speakers may look good, it’s what’s behind the speaker that counts! The design and technology … the stuff you can’t see, but if not ‘done right’ results in a poor-sounding speaker. Behind every PV speaker is a combination of design, technology and engineering that is simply unheard of in this entry-level segment of the market. In fact, PV speakers take our industry-leading Performance and Value to an entirely new level.

Textured Pure Silk Domes with ferro-fluid cooling and damping promote clear and well-extended high-frequency response, superb transparency and a tremendous spaciousness.

Mineral-Filled Polypropylene Cones deliver natural, detailed midrange performance in addition to smooth, well-articulated and well-extended bass response.

Rigid IRP™ Injection-Molded Ribbed Polymer Chassis.

Easy Installation! Unique hidden spring clamps make installation a snap!
