Hello-

I am considering installing the Invisa 7000's in an all ceiling 5.1 setup. Unfortunately our master bedroom is above our family room where the system will installed. Can anyone who has the 7000's installed in ceiling share feedback on how much sound leakage occurs with these speakers? The speakers will be used primarily for tv/ movie viewing.

Thanks.

All in-ceiling and in-wall speakers, regardless of model, will leak sound into adjacent rooms. The amount of leakage will depend entirely on how loud the speaker is playing and the type of wall and insulation present. If you want to prevent leakage completely, you would need to install the speaker in a sealed back box. One popular solution for this is the fold-up boxes from Dynamat that offer sound deadening properties.

It is probably worth noting that even if you used conventional speakers there would be sound leakage to the room above if the system is played at even moderately loud levels. As someone with a basement theater, I can tell you when the kids watched a movie we could hear it two stories up in our master bedroom - and that's without any in-ceiling speakers in use. Modern home construction does little to contain noise from within the structure.
