Sing like no one’s listening, love like you’ve never been hurt, dance like nobody’s watching, and live like its heaven on earth. – Mark Twain
What is a LightSpeaker®, you say? It is a product utilizing patented AudioLight® Technology. It’s an LED light and a high-quality loudspeaker that installs like a light bulb. They are designed to fit into most 5″ and 6″ (R30 or R40) recessed lighting fixtures, or with an accessory, the LampKit, you may also use them in common lamps.
This combination marks the beginning of a new category and an age where multi-room audio is accessible to anyone. The LightSpeaker® system utilizes a proprietary 2.4 ghz wireless technology that is discreet from your home network. It is an audio network, which has proven amazingly robust.The full range driver has been customized to maximize the available air volume and benefits from digital signal processing to bring you the best possible sound from such a unique loudspeaker. The sound surprises all who listen in it’s clarity and range.
Try it yourself, though, don’t take our word for it ! The LED light is so efficient that is uses only 10 watts to produce light bright enough to replace up to a 65 watt bulb. This LED light may last up to 15 years, which eliminates the need to change that little rascal every few months. Sound pretty enlightening? You need look no further than the Buy Now button above to try a set out. Go on. . . have at it! We think you’ll love them!
On January 5th, the prestigious and coveted CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award was presented at a press event in Las Vegas. The Innovations Design and Engineering Awards program recognizes the most innovative consumer electronics (CE) products in the industry’s hottest product categories. Innovations has become a hallmark for the best designed products in consumer technology.
Since 1976, the prestigious Innovations Design and Engineering Awards has given consumer technology manufacturers and developers an opportunity to have their newest products judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade press. It’s the place to see, touch, feel and understand the future of consumer technology.
“International CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards
Innovation is brilliant. And brilliant designs, products and companies deserve recognition. Come see the unsurpassable, ground-breaking designs that are bound to be the next best thing.”
The event was the introduction of the Klipsch LightSpeaker and drew quite a crowd of positive PR folks from around the world. A generous thanks goes out to everyone that attended and crafted their opinions in writing regarding the LightSpeaker!
On January 8th, a CEDIA industry heavyweight presented yet another honor in the Electronic House TOPS Award, recognizing the best technology, products and services for the connected home.
“Most other awards programs centered around CES focus on gadgets or a limited number of product categories such as audio and video,” says Electronic House editor Julie Jacobson. “Since Electronic House encompasses the complete connected home, we recognize such devices as motorized window shades and streaming media.”
Winners of the ToPS Awards were chosen by EH editors, along with distinguished industry veterans and the magazine’s DIY correspondent.Read more
“Klipsch’s LightSpeakers are the easiest-to-install in-ceiling speakers we’ve ever seen. It’s an ingenious idea to turn your canned lighting fixtures into unobtrusive speakers that disappear in your ceiling. Each speaker features a built-in amplifier and wireless receiver, as well as a low-distortion driver for clear, detailed sound. This all adds up to easy, wireless installation. The speakers screw into your existing lighting fixtures, no cabling required. They also include a long-lasting LED light bulb, so you won’t lose lighting in the area where you install the speaker.”
“Frankly, we think the Klipsch LightSpeaker System is brilliant. When we first saw the product, we thought you just replaced the light with a speaker but the fact that you still get light (equivalent of 65 watt bulb) that will last 15 years or more AND uses less electricity… well, it seems like a win win.” “When explaining HD to someone, it’s often hard to convey how cool it is. Same thing with surround sound. Until you’ve experienced it, it’s often impossible to understand what you are missing. The same thing is true about distributed audio. Sure, you think it is no big deal but when you can fill you home with music, even if it is not up to a true Audioholic’s exacting standards, you realize what you’ve been missing.”CE Pro
“What has taken so long for the industry to create such a thing as a light speaker?”Engadget
“The all-new LightSpeaker is a unique and potentially game-changing device in the whole home audio market, as unlike similar contraptions, this one requires no external wiring or power. The device is designed to fit into normal 5- to 6-inch light recesses, which enables existing homeowners to easily retrofit these into their ceilings and walls. We were granted some hands-on time with the light, and put simply, you just screw it into a conventional fixture, dial up the desired zone on the bundled remote, and listen. A full-range driver sits just beneath the LED light, and it receives signals via a 2.4GHz base station that can be plugged into just about any source.”TrendHunter
“The klipsch LightSpeaker is the perfect fusion between modern sound system innovation, and modern architecture. This uniquely designed sound system requires no external wiring or power supply which potentially eliminates the need for intrusive home audio tech installers.
An ingenious fit for individuals that are not technically savvy, the aesthetically pleasing sound system is installed with a simple twist of the wrist, and can be fitted into any light socket in your home. Gotta love that. Oh ya, and it’s a light too.”
