It’s become common practice for home theater installers and DIYers alike to use acoustically transparent screens and hid the front speakers behind it.
For those who want to keep their loudspeakers hidden in a theater room, that’s part of the reasoning. Another is a more accurate soundstage for dialogue and effects that fire out closer to where they are happening on the screen.
French screen maker Screen Research has married its acoustically transparent LeWing series with JBL in an exclusive agreement, adding plenty of thump this home theater solution.
The upgraded LeWing series will have four custom speaker options, beginning with an entry-level option and topped by the LeWing with JBL Project Array that includes professional-venue-style speakers.
The in-ceiling LeWing features motorized horizontal and vertical masking, as well as THX Ultra certification, so you can enjoy any widescreen movie, from 16:9 to 2.35:1 in its full glory.
