Our Invisible Speakers are perfect to audio enhance your artwork, museum display case or even an entire exhibition space as in the Pommern museum ship in Åland, Finland above. No echoes or "too loud" hotspots. Robust enough for outside in hostile environments.

Feonic products are suitable for a wide range of applications:

  • home audio systems for immersive stereo sound
  • commercial premises advertising and innovative promotions - indoor and outdoors (DOOH adverts)
  • boardroom, offices, cleanrooms, schools and presentation theatres. Ideal replacement for low profile speakers
  • hotels and care homes. Entertainment, information and low frequency sound masking
  • multi-zone ambient sound for restaurants, galleries or museums
  • artworks and museum display cases

Attach a Feonic surface transducer to a solid resonant surface and you've got a high quality resonance speaker. A surface which envelops the listener in immersive sound. Powerful, portable, robust and easy to install without specialist skills or extensive re-working of surfaces.

For heavy surfaces such as store windows and solid oak flooring and lighter surfaces such as wooden tables, drywall / plasterboard, acrylic, perspex, metal and more. The low amplitude (excursion) of the magnetostrictive approach ensures surfaces are not cracked or damaged by excessive vibration.

Solutions for Retail, Home Audio, Office and Outdoor Speakers

Surface Speaker solutions fall into these broad categories

  • Flat Panel Speakers : turn surfaces into speakers. Many materials for multiple applications.
  • Invisible Speakers : installed behind or under surfaces. Nothing to see and effectively wireless from a visual perspective.
  • Invisible In Wall Speakers : the drive is inside a wall cavity. Requires more effort to install but with the option of our own honeycomb panels for extra performance.
  • Hidden Speakers : the drive is visible but is easy to install out of sight. Fits in minutes without plastering and decorating. The entire panel becomes a surface speaker.
  • Outdoor Deck Speakers : mount drives on or under wooden decks for all weather resistant sound on the patio. For home, bars, restaurants and tourist attractions.

Resonance Speaker created from Resonant Surfaces

music by Stephanie L Ku -

A resonant surface is a solid material that makes a pleasant sound when tapped. A wooden door or a glass window is resonant. A brick or a rock isn't resonant.

The sound generated from the surface disperses through the panel. All will hear the same immersive surround sound at the same volume level. Avoids "too loud" hotspots. An ideal technology for everything from under floor speakers, ceiling speakers and glass speakers.

Positioning of our audio transducer is not as critical as with alternative speakers. The latter have to be in "line of sight" and therefore all too obvious to the listener. For sound art installations or museums the ability to hide a speaker can be critical:

"Loudspeakers inevitably say to the listener 'I am a loudspeaker', instead we want the sound to speak for itself".
Sound Designer Nick Ryan referring to his use of Feonic resonance speakers in a museum installation.

What's the differences between Feonic Invisible Speakers and alternative technologies?

Table showing amplitude of micro vibrations
Micro Vibrations (low excursion) is good. High vibration (large excursion) from traditional speakers is bad. Latter can damage surfaces.

Feonic's unique micro-vibration amplitude is non damaging and suited to driving many structures. The amplitude of vibration alternative speakers use can be 300 times greater than a Feonic surface transducer. This means that alternatives can generate damaging vibrations. Additionally, Feonic vibration speaker drives can emit low and very high frequencies. Down to 40Hz, and up to ultrasonic sound at around 22KHz. Feonic drives also have the advantage of being small, portable, all weather resistant and are simple to install and remove.

How do Feonic vibration speakers work? The Wall of Sound

We use magnetostrictive smart materials to create wide frequency vibrations within surfaces. Developed using advanced military sonar technology, in collaboration with the University of Hull. Feonic's award winning and multi patented technology is like no other vibration speaker product on the market. This is not a toy or gadget technology for cardboard boxes and the like.

Not all surface vibration speakers are the same. Superficially similar to a piezoelectric transducer, our products deliver high power and exceptional audio quality from the smallest vibrations. Vibrations up to 300 times smaller amplitude than alternatives. This micro vibration approach is a critical factor in avoiding damage to structures and to ensure high audio quality.

In what ways do Feonic Surface Speakers Sound Better than traditional loudspeakers?

Feonic transducers activate large areas of windows, walls, floors or ceilings. In this window speaker example a single sound transducer powers a window. Delivering a controlled wall of sound over the entire surface area.

This allows passersby to hear the music or promotional message while they walk past the full length of the window. And at a constant volume without the sound getting annoyingly louder as they approach the speaker.

The consistent audio output is controllable to avoid noise pollution.

Problems with traditional loudspeaker technology

Traditional loudspeakers are subject to abuse from the weather, vandalism and theft. Wires are run through walls, either drilled through brickwork or window frames. Alternatively, Feonic drives are safe inside: fit without fuss in minutes.

The sound is louder the closer you get to the traditional loudspeaker - a "too loud" hotspot is the result. Conversely, the volume drops rapidly. To compensate for this traditional loudspeakers are often too loud, leading to noise pollution issues.

Too loud? And too quiet? Try Feonic technology for volume that is just right and for all your audience, not just those lucky enough to be situated in the volume or stereo sweet spot.

Ben Rhodes of Heals commented "The discovery of Feonic's Whispering Window® technology has really brought this whole project to life. In a matter of seconds, the speakers were attached to the windows, without any intrusive installation or potentially damaging external fixings. It was just so easy. As soon as we started testing the drives, people were stopping at the window as they could hear the test audio." Read more (PDF approx 500Kb)
