The new JBL Conceal Series loudspeakers come with the patented Stealth Acoustics invisible loudspeaker innovations. The Stealth patented transducers sit in a rigid compression-moulded baffle that is skinned with seventh-generation Fidelity Glass acoustic panels. Additionally, the Conceal line features JBL premium acoustic crossover networks and spring-loaded connections, as well as an integrated back box enclosure. The design results in a loudspeaker that installs like a drywall patch. The surface can be then painted to match the wall, or custom finished for blending into any creative decor.
