Square Audio Spotlight Speakers


Holosonic Research Labs has rolled out its new Square Audio Spotlight Speakers in both 16″ and 24″ formats, making them just nice for architectural installations as well as exhibit displays, bringing improved sonic performance and power efficiency in order to further broaden its range of applications. These square panel formats are what some would term impossibly thin, measuring a mere 0.5″ in thickness, being perfectly flat at the same time. Since they’re so slim, they can just about be mounted almost anywhere, be it solid or suspended ceilings and walls, or even integrated into the display and special exhibits themselves.
