SolidDrive, a SoundTube/MSE Audio brand, has released a 16” on-center drywall bracket assembly that simplifies installations from the back side of the drywall for the brand’s invisible sound solutions
Crafted specifically for situations where access to the front side of the wall is limited, the SD1-BR16-R drywall bracket offers a solution for installing SolidDrive products via a rear-side access wall.
SolidDrive’s patented balanced cantilever spring brackets are essential for seamless SD-1 installations behind drywall, ensuring that the mounting bracket eliminates stress on the glue bond by perfectly balancing the SD-1, thereby eliminating torque, and applying just the right amount of pressure against the drywall.
The SD-1 is known for its versatility. It can be easily attached to drywall, tables, and similar surfaces. Each SD1 unit is designed for delivering audio on one channel, with the option to enhance its performance through an optional equalization module, specially optimized for drywall use.
The SolidDrive utilizes patent-pending dual-voice coil technology in an aluminum enclosure to transfer acoustic energy to any substrate with very high-powered neodymium magnets and dual symmetrically opposed motors to convert audio signals into powerful vibrations. Those vibrations are transferred into solid surfaces through direct contact. High-quality, full-range sound is then radiated from the entire surface. The symmetrically opposed neodymium magnets and specifically engineered mounting hardware results in hidden planar-source acoustics. The result is acoustical uniformity throughout the listening space.
“The new bracket not only makes installation a breeze, but it also optimizes the SD1 placement and thus stabilizes audio quality,” said Ken Hecht, vice president of SoundTube and MSE Audio. “The high-performance sound fills the space and appears to come from everywhere.”
SolidDrive offers models that are optimized for glass or wood in addition to drywall.
The SolidDrive MSK models are used for sound masking by introducing a constant, unobtrusive noise that masks the distracting sounds and conversations. MSK can enhance privacy in an otherwise crowded work environment.
