Instead of re-modeling your living room or other parts of your home to hide a set of unsightly speakers, the Klipsch LightSpeaker system lets you stash them in pre-existing 5 or 6-inch recessed lighting fixtures. Each unit is composed of a 20-watt full range speaker with a 2.5-inch wide dispersion drive, but they also feature a 10-watt fully dimmable LED bulb rated for 40,000 hours so you don’t have to sacrifice lighting for sound.
Of course having to run speaker wire to each unit would completely negate the convenience of its design, so the whole system is wireless, relying on a 2.4GHz transmitter with a (somewhat limited) range of 50 feet that can support up to 8 different LightSpeakers at one time. And using an included remote you can setup two separate listening zones in your home with different music sources for each. “Coming soon” for around $600.
