R53

BLACK in-wall and in-ceiling speakers perform a near miraculous disappearing act. Rather than a wide flange found on most built-in speakers, BLACK speakers feature flange-free Perfect Edge™ magnetic grilles that minimize the visible footprint of the speaker for a clean, elegant and unobtrusive appearance.


Square Options

BLACK round in-ceiling models offer a square grille option to match the aesthetic of rectangular architectural elements such as lighting fixtures and air registers. While other brands may offer that option, only BLACK does it right with a square mask that doesn’t “telegraph” the round speaker shadow behind the grille.

TPR Rubber Surround

TPR Rubber Surround

For installs in tough environments such as indoor pool areas, outdoors under eaves and commercial settings, use BLACK Reference series models. Their woofer surrounds are fabricated from injection molded Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR) – a copolymer that has superior damping characteristics and greater resistance to chemicals, UV and pollutants.

Contour Switch

Contour Switch

Reference and Performance speakers offer a high frequency contour switch with -3dB, 0 (flat) and +3 dB settings to match speaker performance to the room acoustics. Highly reflective “live” rooms benefit from a -3dB HF reduction while fabric-heavy “dead” rooms will sound better with tweeters boosted +3dB.

Custom Crossover

Custom Crossover

BLACK Reference and Performance models feature audiophile-grade crossover components including Mylar bypass capacitors to enhance high frequency extension for exceptional clarity and “air.” Shields* protect the components from debris and suffocating insulation while integrated air vents keep things cool.

Pro Mounting

Pro Mounting

Installers will appreciate the BLACK mounting system for its ease and robust construction. BLACK’s rotating clamps have brass inserts to prevent thread stripping. The stainless steel machine bolts are thread-strip and rust resistant. Rubber damping pads on the mounting clamps minimize the likelihood of sheetrock blowout and damp resonance, vibration and buzzing. Better installs, better sound, it’s all better with BLACK.
