Our take on the Artison Sketch

Artison's Sketch speakers reproduce music and movie soundtracks in clear detail. They install in your wall, so they won't take up any floor space, but you'll still get engaging sound. The stylish white aluminum grilles can be painted to blend in with almost any décor.

Innovative technology provides front and center channel audio
Artison's in-wall Sketch speakers give you an engrossing front soundstage from two speakers, thanks to DualMono® technology. There's no need for a separate center channel speaker — saving the work of installing another speaker in your wall and cutting through a stud.

The upper drivers of each speaker handle center channel sound, anchoring dialogue at the middle of your screen. The lower drivers reproduce left and right channel sound. For a complete home theater experience, add Artison in-wall surround speakers and an in-wall sub.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I planned my room renovation around these speakers as my tv must be located above the fireplace. In the beginning, ran in to the dilemma of where to put my center channel...came to find out, I didn't need a traditional one with these Artison in-walls! Easy to wire, install, and beautiful on the wall, these speakers exceeded my expectations. Paired with a good subwoofer, they're all most will need for their front channels. Although, like the other reviewer, one of the speaker grilles cracked on installation. Crutchfield and Artison sent me two redesigned ones immediately that fit the cabinet much better and were an easy install. This would not prevent me from purchasing these again.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great speakers at what appears to be a great price. I paid this much for the speakers and they sound phenemonel!!! The website showed them originally listed at $1100. They feel and sound more expensive than the price tag. I would definitely rate these as a 5 star product if it wasn't for the grills. The set that came with the speakers were so brittle one broke when I tried to install them. I called Crutchfield and they immediately replaced them. On the second set a second one cracked. With one from the first set and one from the second I'm in good shape. I did not paint the grills but would have been more irritated if I had. Not sure if they sat in the warehouse do long they just got old?? Great service!!! Great product!! The grill situation would not prevent me from buying them again.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Speakers are Bad ... I was worried about not having a real center channel, but with these speakers, the cenner channel is really there. I have a "test tone" on my receiver, and when the center channel hits, it sounds like it is coming directly from the center of the TV. LOVE THEM and the install on my wall looks so clean.

Product Research

Overview: The Artison Sketch In-Wall LCR is a 3-channel (Left, Center, and Right) passive LCR in-wall loudspeaker speaker system which delivers the left, center, and right audio information of your AV surround sound system from two speakers designed to mount inside the wall on either side of your television. The Artison In-Wall LCRs are designed to complement any flat panel display and eliminate the need for a separate center-channel speaker either above or below the display. This is possible through DualMono Center channel technology which integrates two discrete speakers on either side of a flat-panel display that both reproduce the monaural center-channel signal. The dual speaker approach places the apparent source of the sound in the center of the picture where it belongs and eliminate the need for a third speaker (center-channel) which usually sits above or below the TV. The DualMono Center Channel provides an easy installation of just two in-wall speaker cabinets which are more aesthetically appealing and yet still deliver the three discrete front channels for your home theater surround sound.

Mounting Options


In-Wall Mount Design: Unlike other in in-wall speakers, the Artison Sketch In-Wall LCRs are a complete speaker cabinet mounted inside an in-wall mount. The In-Wall LCRs have a closed-back design which ensures that the performance of the speaker is maintained, independent of the wall cavity size or wall construction type. It does not rely on the cavity created behind the baffle to control the performance of the system. The sound is consistent and fully independent of the environment.

DualMono Center Channel: The Artison Sketch In-Wall LCRs feature a unique, patented DualMono Center Channel which improves the reproduction of the audio. Two dedicated speaker located in the upper half of the left and right channel enclosures work together to project crisp, clear dialogue from the center of the screen where it belongs. The Artison Sketch In-Wall LCRs left and right channels provide the wide-accurate sound stage you want from a home theater speaker system.

Drivers: Each Artison Sketch In-Wall LCR features two 4.5" long-throw polypropylene midrange drivers and two 1" silk-dome tweeters for exceptional dynamics, fast transient response, and ruler-flat frequency.

Enclosure: The Artison Sketch In-Wall LCR features a white aluminum cabinet and off-white plastic grille which are also paintable (paint shields supplied). The LCR In-Walls utilizes a bass-reflex enclosure design with two front-firing ports for added bass response and efficiency.


Speaker Connections: Each Artison Sketch In-Wall LCR will require two discrete audio signal from an external multi-channel amplifier. Each Artison LCR In-Wall features two pair of gold-plated spring-post terminals (Front Right or Left, and Center). For the Left and Right channels, connect one end of your two-conductor speaker wire to the left and right channel positive and negative terminals of the receiver or amplifier; and then connect the other end of the speaker wire to the lower set positive and negative terminals located on the rear of each speaker. The DualMono Center Channels should be wired in a parallel connection to the amplifier/receiver channel; this can be achieved with two separate speaker wires run from the amplifier/receiver, one to each DualMono Center Channel.  The speaker wire gauge required is depending upon wire length run; 16 Gauge is suggested as the minimum size.

Mounting Options

Mounting: The Artison Sketch In-Wall LCR features an integrated mounting bracket and is designed to be compatible with standard 2 x 4" stud walls. The Sketch In-Wall LCR features a 3-3/4" mounting depth and cut-out dimensions of 5.875" wide x 26.4375" tall. The in-wall speakers come supplied with mounting templates to help you determine the proper location and size of the cut-out needed in your wall.
