How to Enjoy Great Sound From Above
In-Ceiling Speakers Let Music Flow But Don’t Upset the Decor
If you love music and great audio, you know that speakers are a critical part of the auditory experience. If you want quality home audio in multiple rooms, you could have bookshelf speakers or floor-standing speakers for the best sound in your Eden Prairie home. But it’s not always practical in many rooms.
You could also have wireless speakers that are relatively unobtrusive. While some models are quite good, you get better imaging from a pair of stereo speakers. For years, the sleek solution to audio – especially for a multi-room setup - was in-ceiling speakers. But they weren’t always known for the best quality sound.
That, however, has changed. Almost every major speaker manufacturer makes in-ceiling models. While some are geared for milder background listening, other models can rock like their freestanding counterparts.

Whole Home Audio
If you want great audio in every room, in-ceiling speakers are an excellent choice. Some of the latest models have thin grilles that are practically flush with the ceiling, and when finished to match the ceiling color are almost invisible. Sonance, our speaker partner, has a line called the Invisible Series which practically disappears in your room, except for their sound.
Sonance’s Architectural Series ups the ante even more in sound quality. It employs a subwoofer and satellite system to produce articulate bass and broader sound dispersion in a room, delivering an enveloping sound that doesn’t seem to come from the ceiling.
With a home theater, ceiling speakers are almost mandatory if you want those true overhead sound effects, especially in action-oriented movies. Indeed, for Dolby Atmos, the latest in surround sound formats, there can be multiple in-ceiling speakers for the optimal experience. When done correctly, it can be a three dimensional sound environment.
When it comes to audiophile sound quality, a good choice would be Sonance’s Reference series. It is a complete line of tonally matched speakers and subwoofers of various sizes, usable in stereo pairs all the way to a full 14-speaker Dolby Atmos surround setup.
As with other speakers, in-ceiling speakers can match the quality you want and your budget. Less expensive models can be used for background listening in certain rooms, while higher quality ones can be employed in more critical listening areas. Either way, you don’t have to think about how to incorporate speakers into your décor.
