"My whole team was surprised by the sound!"
"I majored in Electrical Engineering and minored in Acoustical Engineering at Northeastern University in Boston, I designed and installed dozens of nightclub sound systems in the 90's before specializing in residential....I know sound.
We just installed a 7:2 Home Theater here in Boston using the REV6 LCR's for fronts, the REV6 SUR for sides, the new THIN-CEILING for rears, a CSUB-10 and a PS-8 sub powered by the Denon AVR 3313 (125W/channel).
The THIN speakers allowed us to achieve proper placement despite some HVAC ducts - which was great! We wanted to gauge the acoustics/efficiency/sound of the new THIN using the REV6's as a baseline. My whole team was very surprised by the sound before we ran the Audyssey MultEQ XT. After room correction/calibration we lit the THIN's up with everything from Skrillex on Pandora, Jazz mp-4's, to an Eagles Live Blu-ray.
Obviously, there was a difference listening to music on the multichannel setting (although not as remarkable as I expected), but for TV/Movie viewing I wouldn't hesitate using the THIN's as rears again when facing space limitations.
Great innovation guys!"

SuperTHIN Saves the Day!
The THIN-Ceiling Speaker was designed as the solution for any time you have a shallow wall, obstructed install, or your client prefers a smaller, more minimalist look. If you have wiring or piping - or HVAC ducting - that keeps you from placing a speaker where it should go for proper sound matching, the THIN provides the perfect solution. Any place where a regular-size speaker won't fit - any place where space is at a premium - the THIN is your answer.
We've designed the THIN as one complete unit that comes with a pre-mounted back box - an architectural speaker that measures a mere 2.375 inches deep, back box and all! An integrated back box also saves you time, money, and makes for an easy installation. And the THIN back box is sealed so you don't have to worry about anything getting into it.
Despite its size, the THIN provides impressive sound. That's because we gave it a full 5" driver constructed of injected polypropylene and a 1" soft silk dome tweeter. We've also tuned the THIN crossover to its enclosure so you will get a consistently great sound across every installation. A rich TruAudio sound from a little, unassuming speaker.
Not only is the THIN "thin", we also gave it the smallest footprint of any 5" architectural speaker. The ridiculously small footprint is about an inch smaller than our 4" Ghost in-ceiling speaker. We also gave the THIN our patented Ghost grill with its tiny 2 mm reveal (square and rectangular Ghost grills are also available as accessories).
If all of that were not enough, we made the THIN packaging environmentally and installer friendly. The THIN comes in a very small box with an absolute minimum of wasted space. Use the THIN in your next install and you won't have a pile of boxes, plastic, and cardboard to throwaway. The THIN is in all ways minimal - and that means less hassle for you.
Looks good, sounds good, thinks like an installer, and saves the day when it comes to shallow wall or an obstructed install.
