Beale Street Audio Unveils Its Slimmest In-Wall Speakers


Beale Street Audio says it’s raising the bar of architectural audio expectations once again with the unveiling of its super-slim, two-way in-ceiling/in-wall, full range “Pancake” speakers that measures only two and three quarter inches deep. Ideal for the European market and in cities or other places where ceiling or wall depth can present installation challenges, the Pancake is easy to install and benefits from Beale Street Audio’s performance enhancing Sonic Vortex Technology.

Currently, two models in this series will be available with more planned for the future. The P4-BB, is an in-ceiling/in-wall ultra-thin speaker that features a four inch two-way Carbon Fiber woofer and three-quarter inch Titanium tweeter. The IPLCR4-BB is a LCR speaker that features two four inch Carbon Fiber woofers and a three-quarter inch Titanium tweeter.

The benefits afforded by Sonic Vortex technology are the real magic behind Beale’s new Pancake speaker. Sonic Vortex generates what the company claims is rich, deep bass from what most people would call a ‘back box.’ In reality, the enclosure is actually a compact, integrated, tuned cabinet that offers a ‘twist’ on Ported Transmission Line design by optimizing air movement to produce much bigger sound than the 2 ¾-inch depth leads you to believe. The enclosure also keeps sound from bleeding to other rooms while adding a six to nine dB boost in mid-lower bass.

The speakers are designed to play in full range mode only and achieve an impressive frequency response of 62Hz to 20KHz.
