World’s First THX Dominus Certified In-Wall Home Cinema Speakers

Perlisten Audio's in-wall speakers are the first to achieve THX Dominus certification, making them perfect for stealthy home cinemas.

Perlisten's THX Dominus in-wall speakers are headed up by the flagship S7i LR. Measuring just under a metre in length and only 4-inches deep, this 4-way system comprises four 7-inch woofers and Perlisten's Directivity Pattern Control (DPC) waveguided array of a 28mm tweeter and twin 28mm midrange drivers.

The DPC array utilises passive beamforming designed to achieve precise dispersion of the beryllium tweeter - with expanded bandwidth to 40kHz - and the twin midrange transducers. To minimise internal reflections, all three DPC drivers are housed within a dedicated rear absorption chamber. In addition, the S7i LR's fully sealed S-series aluminium cabinet is damped with a bituminous layer, ensuring consistent frequency response without enclosure resonances or sound leakage.

The tweeter and dual midranges utilise oversized Neodymium motors, shorting rings for low inductance, flux stabilisation with low distortion, and Ferrofluid for power handling. Meanwhile, the S7i LR's four 7-inch woofers promise the dynamic range needed for huge transients while remaining under control. This is all part of achieving THX Certified Dominus, which demands more than double the output levels of THX Certified Ultra specification.

Dominus is the newest and the largest performance class of THX certification, meant to bridge the gap between large home theatre speakers and those used in commercial movie theatres and exhibits. As a result, home theatre owners with rooms up to 184 cubic metres and up to a 6-metre viewing distance can fill their listening rooms with the superior audio quality they expect from THX Certified products.

The S7i-LR will be joined by S7i-C, S5i-LR, S5i-C, and S4i-LCRS surround models in Q4.

You can experience Perlisten's THX Dominus in-wall speakers at their European debut at stand 102 EI Live! Farnborough Exhibition Centre, Sept 14-15, 2022.
