Architectural (in-wall and in-ceiling) loudspeakers have become the leading product sellers for many companies.
Their popularity is driven by the desire to be heard and not seen. It’s much easier to get the wife’s approval when the speakers are blending and not clashing with a room’s decor.
Professional electronics installers have responded to this trend by pushing their manufacturing partners to develop more ergonomically friendly, better sounding solutions.
Through all of this, several manufacturers have emerged with “go to” products for installers.
