Definitive Technology DI5.5R Disappearing™ Series Round 5.5″ In-Wall / In-Ceiling Speaker, Each

You want great sound everywhere in your home, but you may not always have room for or want the visual intrusion of free-standing speakers. Built-in flush mount speakers seem to be the answer but in practice they don’t exactly disappear in the room, in fact many “in-wall” speakers call attention to themselves and create friction between your decorator and your audiophile sensibilities. Worse yet, most built-in speakers fall short on the performance end as well. Would Definitive allow you to suffer with bad sound? Oh no, no, no!

Definitive’s Disappearing™ In-Wall series speakers feature near-invisibility thanks to their small diameters, hidden flange design, and low profile micro-perf grilles. They are as easy to install as traditional flanged flush-mount speakers, and don’t require custom sheetrock/spackle skills to install yet they are practically invisible. The DI 5.5R grille is a mere 7-3/8″ (18.62cm)in diameter, about the same visible size as competitive nominal 4-1/2″ in-ceiling speakers. With Definitive’s DI Series you get more sound per square inch of visible speaker.

Description

DI 5.5R 5.25” In-Wall / In-Ceiling Speaker

Clearly Covers
Every Angle

With its small diameter, hidden flange design, and low-profile grille, the DI 5.5R is nearly invisible in your ceilings or walls. This pint-size dynamo goes boldly where other speakers can’t, while producing a full, accurate audio experience belying its size

Invisible Audio, Astonishing Performance

The culmination of decades of engineering, DI Series Loudspeakers deliver sensational sound quality while virtually disappearing into walls and ceilings with our hidden flange design. Treat yourself to dynamic bass, smooth midrange, and sparkling treble with little impact on your décor.

Environmental EQ
fine-tunes the highs for any space

Adjust the Environmental EQ switch to customize tweeter output for your listening environment. Engage the [+] setting to boost treble in sound-absorbing rooms, or the [–] setting to reduce treble in lively rooms. Leave in the Center position for rooms with average reflectivity

Pivoting Tweeter
for controlled directivity

The ultralight, rigid construction of DI Series aluminum dome tweeters enables them to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, enabling optimum linearity within the range of human hearing. The DI 5.5R features a pivotable tweeter for clean, sparkling, distortion-free highs, with dispersion customizable to your space.

Exclusive BDSS™ Technology
midrange/bass woofer

For more bass in less space while keeping midrange detailed and responsive, the DI 5.5R’s 5.25” mid/bass woofer leverages our exclusive Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS™) driver technology. The double butyl rubber surrounds produce a much greater cone excursion than other comparably sized drivers. And the DI 5.5R’s rigid PolyStone™ basket provides a sturdy launching pad for the powerful excursion.

With BDSS drivers, you’ll enjoy superior midrange/bass dynamics and detail in packages sized for stealth.

Acoustic Wizardry
for the details that make the difference

The DI 5.5R features a sophisticated adjustable crossover network with custom, high-precision components for superior sonic purity.

Surrounding the BDSS driver is a specially-contoured AeroRing™ that precisely distributes natural, well-balanced sound by minimizing diffraction.

The Axially-Aligned configuration of the tweeter with the woofer provides broader sound dispersion and more natural balance

Disappearing Design

Installs Easily and Reliably

Whether new or existing construction, walls or ceilings, residential or commercial, DI Series speakers offer simple, stealthy installations. Our engineers have extensive custom installation experience, and have felt your pain when working with hastily-engineered products. From pivoting lock arms to paintable grilles and frames to sure-grip magnetic grille fasteners, DI Series speakers are installer-friendly to the extreme

All the Stealth
none of the complexity

Hidden flange architecture is fantastic for décor, because the nearly border-free design virtually disappears into walls and ceilings. What isn’t fantastic is the typical installation complexity. However, DI Series hidden flange designs are as easy to install as traditional flanged flush-mount speakers, and don’t require custom Sheetrock or spackle skills to install the practically invisible look

Paintable Magnetic Grille
for the final custom touch

 

All DI Series speaker grilles and grille frames are paintable, with easy step-by-step instructions. Once you have your perfect look, powerful neodymium magnets attach the grilles to the speakers for a secure, tool-free finish.
