The new speakers are designed to fit your screen thanks to custom baffles.
Your television is so large that it dwarfs your on-wall speakers, making them look out of place by comparison. It's the kind of problem you want to have. If you've got the new Arcoustic on-wall speakers, it's not a problem at all.
The Modular One is the smallest speaker produced by Artcoustic, at just 9.8 inches by 3.1 inches by 2.1 inches. It may sound great, but it definitely doesn't look good on a wall. That's why Artcoustic offers custom baffles to make the speaker seem larger than it actually is.
If you lean more towards concealing your home theater gear, there's an option for you too. Instead of a custom baffle in black, you can get a printed baffle that hides your speakers under a work of art. Pricing starts at $680 for the Modular One and goes up from there for the Modular L+C+R and Modular Cinema.
