Amina has expanded its Edge Series of Invisible loudspeakers, with the Edge3. Originally launched at ISE in 2017, the Edge7 and Edge5 products have proved popular in both commercial and residential applications.

The new Edge3 model has a slightly smaller form factor (300 x 400mm) with a more aggressive price position ( £500 ex VAT), making it suited for smaller commercial applications in retail and hospitality. Integrators can also use the Edge3 when installing an invisible multi-room audio solution in the home where traditional loudspeakers could be precluded from use.

Highly efficient, the Edge 3 has a sensitivity of 86dB 1m/2.83Vrms, a power handling of 30W cont/60W peak , for a maximum sound pressure level of 101dB.

Amina says this specification has allowed it to create a new price point for high performance, invisible speakers.

As with previous Amina speakers, sound is dispersed hemi-spherically from the wall or ceiling, across the frequency range of 90Hz-24KHz. These dispersion characteristics have an often overlooked, additional advantage, of requiring significantly fewer speakers to create an even SPL in a large space, it adds, which is particularly applicable in retail applications.

The panel uses a high performance glass-filled core, making it stiff, light and damped, perfect for high fidelity sound production saysAmina’s MD Richard Newlove, adding “ The material used on the Edge Series has excellent fire retardant, low smoke and low fume properties which is becoming an increasingly important requirement within the built environment”.
The company is also making The Edge3 available in 70/100V line versions, with a high quality toroidal wound transformer built into the speaker.

The Edge Series was originally developed for dry lined applications and the perimeter is shaped and tapered to allow joint tape and filler to be used in the same way as for drywall gypsum. However, due to the characteristics of the new panel material chosen for the Edge Series, providing both improved efficiency and bass performance, the Edge series has proved popular as a retrofit option in fully plastered applications.
