Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a light, it’s—a speaker?
SpeakerCraft just announced its super-small NEAT 3 in-walls, which are designed to look just like the miniature can of a light. I would probably rather look at a speaker than a light, but the idea is that the unit only takes up a small amount of space, while blending nicely into any background.
“Looking at the popularity of small flush-mounted spotlights inspired us to design a loudspeaker to match,” says Jeremy Burkhardt, SpeakerCraft’s CEO. “We know that homeowners prefer speakers that are less conspicuous and the NEAT 3 is just that.”
The unit features a 3-inch full-range driver, as well as a two-piece bracket that snaps together inside the wall and is secured with drywall screws through the wall’s surface.
There’s no word on whether the NEAT 3 is available now, or at what price. One thing we do know: You’ll have to call a pro to get them installed.
