Do invisible speakers need a special amplifier?
Last Updated: 06/10/2016

Kinda.

Live-Wall speakers appreciate a high-quality amplifier with at least 60 watts of power per channel. We like this amp from ATI, or this one from AudioControl. We’ve chosen to engineer Live-Wall speakers with enhanced bass response (and lower sensitivity, meaning they require more power to play loud).

You see, speaker designers face a choice driven by physics — limited bass with higher sensitivity, or extended bass with lower sensitivity. Choosing an extended bass design increases manufacturing costs, since the speaker has to handle more power to produce an equivalent amount of output. But Live-Wall Integrators use better amplification anyway, so it's a non-issue.

In addition, sophisticated Integrators specify DSP amplifiers into their important projects, allowing room-by-room acoustic analysis and tuning to overcome anomalies introduced by the room or decorating choices. When used in conjunction with a high-quality DSP amplifier, like this unit from AudioControl, a Live-Wall room can be optimized for truly magical performance.
