Stealth Speakers
The Coulombe Home as Featured in DownEast Magazine

Custom Home Theater installed 170 stealth speakers inside and outside of the Coulombe home. All of the photos below contain speakers, but you can't see them because they are all hidden. In some cases they are inside the ceiling or in a faux rock that's indistinguishable from a real rock!

"There are 170 speakers on that property, but the owner didn't want to see any of them. So we had to do things like embed them in the ceiling, and then put a credit-card thickness of plaster over them. In the octagonal wood sunroom we knew we had a real challenge, so we found a product that turns the wood itself into a transducer—it actually excites the wood. We used it there and also outside, in the cabana.

"We've done a lot of really nice homes, but the particular fit and finish of this house, even for Maine, was certainly among the best.

"We put about 1,800 hours into that house. My business is almost ten years old, and we were really fortunate to have a project of that size and scope, especially in this economy."
