About the GoldenEar Invisa MPX

Angled drivers for enveloping surround sound

The "MP" in this GoldenEar speaker's name stands for "multi-polar" — its woofers fire at an angle from one another, which helps disperse sound more widely than most direct-firing in-wall speakers. This design makes them ideally suited for installation on the rear or side walls of your home theater as surround speakers, where they can deliver wraparound effects. GoldenEar also mentions that they can be installed in your ceiling, as well, and even used for stereo music applications.

The "MP" in this GoldenEar speaker's name stands for "multi-polar" — its woofers fire at an angle from one another, which helps disperse sound more widely than most direct-firing in-wall speakers.

GoldenEar also mentions that they can be installed in your ceiling, as well, and even used for stereo music applications.

Driver design magic

GoldenEar's HVFR™ (High Velocity Folded Ribbon) tweeter is highly acclaimed among audio aficionados for its detail and transparency. It squeezes the air between the folds of a high-density diaphragm, rather than pushing air like a piston. This design helps the tweeter to maintain a wide dispersion pattern and smooth response all the way up to 35,000 Hz. In the Invisa MPX, you can dial in the tweeter's output to suit your taste and setup using the three-position high-frequency EQ switch located behind the grille on the front faceplate.

The tweeter is flanked by a pair of high-definition 4-1/2" mid/bass woofers, set at an angle from each other, as described above. Their extra-strong magnets and proprietary cone shape keep their movement linear and clean. Each woofer uses GoldenEar's proprietary MVPP™ (multi-vaned phase plug), which controls energy in the center of the drivers and minimizes cone diffraction, a form of distortion.

DIY installation

If this is a do-it-yourself install, check out our guide to installing in-ceiling speakers, along with our selection of in-wall speaker wire. You can paint the included magnetic grille to have your speaker blend in with your décor.

Features

Multi-Polar In-Wall Speaker: The GoldenEar Technology Invisa MPX multi-polar in-wall loudspeaker combines the advantages of a direct-radiating loudspeaker with enhanced spaciousness and dispersion. This makes it the perfect choice for the rear or side surround channels of a multi-channel home theater installation. It features GoldenEar Technology's unique Non-Periodic Diffraction Control and Wave-Launch technology for enhanced clarity and sound radiation into the room.

  • High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) Tweeter: The MPX features GoldenEar Technology's High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeter. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. The result is better impedance matching to the air in the room with greater control, smoother more extended response with lower distortion and dramatically improved dynamic range.
  • Dual 4.5" Multi-Vaned Phase Plug (MVPP) Woofer: The MPX speaker houses two opposing-angled 4.5" Multi-Vaned Pashe Plug (MVPP) woofers with proprietary computer optimized cone topology, a 1" high-temperature Kapton former voice coil, High-Gauss magnet assembly, and rigid free-flow cast-baskey chassis. The result is an extremely resonance-free, extended linear frequency response.

Complex Multi-Element Crossover Network: A complex multi-element crossover precisely blends the drivers for seamless, precise, and natural sound quality. The advance crossover network also helps the in-wall speaker achieve an open, "boxless", three-dimensional (3D) sound that appears to come from all around you.

High Frequency Equalization (HF EQ): Built-in high frequency equalization helps with integrating the MPX in-wall speaker into your room, regardless of the reflecting and/or absorbing surfaces you may have in your room. The HF EQ has three settings -

  • If you have a typical listening room with a balance of reflecting and absorbing surfaces, then start with the HF EQ control in the center position.
  • If your listening room is overly "bright" due to many reflective and hard surfaces, then select the "-" position to effectively compensate for this type of room acoustics issue.
  • If your listening room is filled with heavy furniture and fabrics or you are sitting fairly far from the speakers, making the sound seem "dull", select the "+" position to compensate for this type of room acoustics issue.

Magnetically Attached Micro-Perf Grille: The Invisa MPX has a flat, round, magnetically attached micro-perf grille that covers the mounting flange for an attractive, nearly "invisible" look. This low-profile grille only protrudes 0.1875" from the wall. The micro-perf grille is white in color, but can be painted to blend in better with the color of your wall.

Spring-Post Terminals: The GoldenEar Technology MPX in-wall loudspeaker is outfitted with a set of high-quality spring-post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).

Mounting & Placement Options: The Invisa MPX installs in the wall and requires a rectangular cutout that measures 6.25" (w) x 12.75" (h) and 3.75" (d). Six integrated locking-arms secure the speaker to the wall. The locking-arms support a 0.25" to 1" thick wall surface. Allow at least 0.875" of clearance around the inside edge of the cutout to accommodate the locking arms. Allow at least 0.75" of clearance around the outside edge of the cutout to accommoate the speaker frame and grille. An optional rough-in bracket is available for new construction (see Accessories Tab).

  • When used as surround speakers in a 5.1ch or 7.1ch home theater system, the Invisa MPX may be located on the side, above, or behind the listeners. When used on the sides, take care never to locate the speakers forward of the listeners
  • If a pair of MPX speakers are placed along the rear wall as surrounds in a 5.1ch system, it is suggested that they be positioned fairly wide apart if possible.
  • If a pair of MPX speakers are used as rear surrounds in a 7.1ch system, they should be placed fairly close together (4' to 6').

Note: When preparing to install the in-wall speaker, pick a location that has the required clearance between wall joists. Make sure to check for wiring, conduit, water pipes, HVAC ducts and other obstructions before cutting the installation hole.

Invisa Series: GoldenEar Technology's Invisa Series architectural speakers are engineered to deliver superb state-of-the-art sound quality, designed to blend perfectly with their surroundings and virtually disappear. The Invisa Series consists of three in-ceiling speakers (Invisa 525 / Invisa 600 / Invisa 650), a stereo input in-ceiling speaker (Invisa SP 652), a home theater engineered in-ceiling speaker (HTR 7000 / HTR 8000), a home theater engineered LCR in-wall speaker (SPS), and a home theater engineered surround in-wall speaker (MPX) - all sold separately.
