When Niles presented the first Directed Soundfield™ (DS) loudspeakers in 2001 at CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis, everyone was astounded by the performance and versatility they provided.
People quickly agreed that the unique design with fully adjustable, independent pivoting woofer and tweeter enabled DS loudspeakers to re-create high-fidelity sound accurately, regardless of where in the ceiling they were located.
Ever since then, tens of thousands of DS loudspeakers have been delighting customers in distributed audio and home theater systems around the world. The latest generation of Directed Soundfield loudspeakers ingeniously combines design aesthetics, advanced technology, and installation versatility to address the challenges professional system integrators face today.
These challenges include seamless integration with high-design décor, containing unwanted sound from bleeding into other rooms, and lifelike sonic quality not available from conventional loudspeakers.
To do this, we took the best ideas from the original DS design architecture and infused them with significant and innovative new features.
The features include magnetically attached MicroThin™ speaker grilles for a clean, designer appearance, and an optional Rear Wave Control enclosure that significantly reduces the sound bleed into adjacent rooms.
Also included is a spring-tensioned mounting clamp system that tightly secures the loudspeaker—even if the mounting surface expands or contracts.
