Invisa Series Overview

GoldenEar Invisa® Series loudspeakers are engineered to deliver superb state-of-the-art sound quality from in-wall/in-ceiling speakers that are designed to blend perfectly with their surroundings and virtually disappear. GoldenEar’s Invisa line-up consists of the Invisa 525, Invisa 650 and SP 652 StereoPoint™ Single-point Stereo speaker, the Invisa Home Theater Reference (HTR) 7000 and the Invisa MPX. All five models incorporate a magnetically attached grill-covered/hidden flange construction that helps to make them virtually invisible.

A tremendous amount of work has gone into the acoustical engineering of the Invisa Series speakers in order to deliver the highest sound quality possible in an architectural format. All five models incorporate a High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) high-frequency radiator similar to the unit used in all of GoldenEar’s award-winning Towers, Bookshelf and Satellite speakers. The Invisa 525 and Invisa 650/652 utilize a one-piece driver/frame/flange construction in order to minimize their footprint. Solidly constructed of a marble-infused polymer, the unitized structure actually has the high-definition wide-dispersion driver constructed as an integral part. The Invisa HTR 7000 incorporates our Focus-Field™ Technology with a cast-basket 7" bass/midrange driver and HVFR™ tweeter that are angled under the grille for optimum performance as Main and/or Surround, Rear, Height speakers in a high-quality in-ceiling home theater and music system. The Invisa MPX, with its advanced spaciousness and dispersion, is perfect for in-wall Main or Surround use. All four systems have complex multi-element crossovers to precisely blend the drivers for seamless, exquisitely natural sound quality.

 
Invisa MPX

Invisa MPX Overview

The Invisa MPX MultiPolar In-Wall/In-Ceiling Loudspeaker combines the advantages of a direct-radiating loudspeaker with the enhanced spaciousness and dispersion of a bipolar speaker. This makes them the perfect choice for the rear or side surround channels of a multi-channel installation, as well as for front main speakers or for distributed audio multi-room installations. It can be easily mounted in walls or ceilings and is very flexible in terms of orientation. Like the other Invisa Series speakers, it has a flat magnetically attached micro-perf grille that covers the flange for an attractive, nearly invisible look. It combines two precisely angled spiderleg cast-basket 4.5" bass/midrange drivers, a High-Velocity Folded Ribbon Tweeter (HVFR™) and a complex precision crossover network with a high-frequency equalization switch. Like the Invisa HTR 7000, it features GoldenEar’s unique Non-Periodic Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch technology for enhanced clarity and source-less sound radiation into the room.

Invisa HTR 7000

Invisa HTR 7000 Overview

The Invisa Home Theater Reference 7000 is designed for use as a ceiling-mounted main front stage left, right, or center speaker in high-quality home theater or music systems, as well as for use as a side or rear surround speaker. In many installations it is also perfect as a height channel speaker. It has a flat, round, magnetically attached micro-perf grille that covers the mounting flange for an attractive, nearly “invisible” look. The drivers are mounted at precisely calculated angles so that they face the normal listening position for exceptional imaging, superior frequency response, remarkable clarity and precise focus. The driver complement combines the same superb 7" high-definition cast-basket driver used in the acclaimed Aon 3, with one of GoldenEar’s signature technology HVFR™ tweeters. A complex crossover network, with a high-frequency equalization switch, assures perfect blending. In order to achieve open, boxless, three-dimensional imaging that appears to come from across the front wall rather than the ceiling, great care has been taken to minimize deleterious diffraction effects as well as to optimize wave-launch into the room. This is achieved by utilizing and combining our FocusField™ Technology with a unique Non-Periodic Waveform (NPW) Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch construction. Click here to read the Brochure.

Invisa 525 and 650

Invisa 525 and Invisa 650 Overview

The 525 and 650 are designed for in-ceiling and in-wall use. The driver motor structures and cone/voice coil assemblies (5.25" in the 525 and 6.5" in the 650) are based on those utilized in GoldenEar’s Triton and Aon speakers. Of course, both also incorporate the GoldenEar High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) tweeter and a complex crossover to perfectly blend the drivers for superb performance.

The 525s and 650s come standard with a round, paintable MagneLock™ grille and there is an optional square grille available. Special attention has been given to achieving wide sonic dispersion that is so important in distributed audio systems. The tweeters twist and pivot to optimize performance and a high-frequency equalization switch allows precise matching to any environment. Click here to read the Brochure.

Invisa SP652

Invisa SP 652 Overview

Similar to the Invisa 650, the Invisa SP 652 is a very versatile all-in-one stereo speaker, which, when both channels are paralleled, also makes a great bipolar surround speaker as well as an in-ceiling Atmos height speaker. Solidly constructed of a marble-infused polymer, the unitized construction actually has the high-definition wide-dispersion dual-wound voice-coil 6-1/2” driver constructed as an integral part, with clear performance advantages. Special care has been taken to minimize deleterious diffraction effects that are common in many other stereo speakers that sink the drivers deeply into the structure. The two superb, but costly, HVFR™ tweeters are mounted in a special acoustically optimized high-frequency pod with a precisely calculated angle to maximize stereo coverage and radiation into the room. It is unique to find tweeters of this quality in single point stereo speakers. Two complex crossovers incorporating the highest quality components are utilized to precisely blend the drivers for seamless exquisite sound quality. A specially contoured santoprene anti-resonance/diffraction-control ring is incorporated around the driver and covering the surrounds to further optimize performance. There is also a high-frequency equalization switch to precisely match the SP 652 to any environment. Click here to read the Brochure.

Invisa 600

Invisa 600 Overview

Looking for a high performance affordable alternative to the “Contractor Quality” in-walls your builder might suggest? The Invisa 600 is based on our best-selling Invisa 650, with the same one-piece marble-infused unitized driver/frame/flange construction built around the same 6.5" driver. It also offers the same minimal footprint, which delivers the exceptional performance advantages of a 6.5" driver based system, in a compact size comparable to the size of most competitors' 5.25" systems. Of course, it also features a paintable MagneLock grille with an optional square grille available.

Instead of our signature HVFR tweeter, the 600 incorporates a newly developed 1" pure titanium dome tweeter, which has a special silk surround. It is pivotable, of course. Its performance, while not quite that of our folded ribbon, is excellent and we believe the best of any dome tweeter available in in-wall, in-ceiling architectural products. Of course, a complex crossover is utilized to ensure seamless blending and voicing is signature GoldenEar all the way.
