Features

LightSpeaker: The LightSpeaker simply installs into almost any 5" (R-30) or 6" (R-40) recessed ceiling light fixture and serves two system purposes - it act as a wireless, self-powered loudspeaker and a dimmable LED light.

  • Full-Range Sound Performance: The LightSpeaker's full-range internal speaker uses a 20 watt high-performance, low-distortion digital amplifier to deliver energy efficient sound. Furthermore, the 2.5-inch wide dispersion driver uses digital signal processing to optimize high- and low-frequency output for a full spectrum of sound.
  • Brilliant LED Light: The LightSpeaker comes with a fully dimmable LED bulb that is rated for 25,000 to 40,000 hours of use and can last over 15 years (long lifespan saves changing 50 standard bulbs). It also reduces daily lighting expenses by 80%, using 10 watts to produce light that's bright enough to replace up to a 65-watt bulb. The LED light is fully dimmable using the included remote and transmitter. Unlike incandescent bulbs, LED light bulbs contain no mercury or halogen gases and produce almost no heat.

Earth Friendly: The LightSpeaker can pay for itself in 5 years through savings on installation, equipment, and daily usage of the LED green lighting.

Mounting Options

No Wiring/Easy Install: The LightSpeaker installs like a light bulb and fits almost any fixture with a standard Edison socket; such as 5- and 6-inch recessed can-lighting, hanging lights, as well as table and floor lamps. The LightSpeaker is equipped with a unique mounting system (SimpleTabs). The three SimpleTabs, on the back of the speaker can be rotated outward and when the LightSpeaker is pressed into the housing, hold it centered and securely in place. There is no wiring, no retrofitting, and no software. Plus, uninstalling the LightSpeaker is just as simple, in case you move.

Mounting Requirements: The Klipsch LightSpeaker requires a light fixture with an Edison socket and an opening of 4.75" in diameter with 6.5625" of depth.
