SolidDrive: Invisible Speakers

by Tim Yu
on 15 May 2007

SolidDrive allows you to turn most solid surfaces into speakers allowing you to utilize walls, glass, or countertops already in the room to create a virtually invisible sound system. Hooked up to an amp, the device can be installed behind walls and by converting audio signals into vibrations the entire wall can be turned into a speaker with omnidirectional sound covering most frequencies.

Not really geared toward audiophiles, SolidDrives still produce commercial quality sound and uses very little power. It uses a compound called Terfenol-D, a sort of rare-earth magnet that was declassified by the Navy. For more info including purchasing information visit SolidDrive. Professional installation is recommended for EQ setup.
