The Sonance Visual Performance series of speakers feature a low-profile, slim bezel grill and are available in a wide variety of models.  Therefore, we have a model to fit size, shape, performance level, and specialty applications for any project.  These 8" best-in-class speakers perform at concert-like reproduction and carry the awards to prove it.  If you are looking for the best in-ceiling speaker available, look no further because here it is.

Sonance VP 8" speakers are available in a variety of audio performances based on your preferences for the room.  The “Integrity” line delivers an entry-level price point but with the advantage of Sonance quality.  When you step up to the “Eclipse” line, the main driver of the speaker is made out of a Kevlar/Nomex material delivering excellent rigidity and tight, accurate bass response.  Finally, the award-winning “Master” line brings best-in-class carbon fiber + Rohacell driver and a ceramic dome tweeter to give the tightest bass response and the most accurate treble reproduction.  Click here to learn more about our speaker classes.

All 8" speakers in the Visual Performance line from Sonance have optional square grills.  These have been known to "wow" professional interior decorators from around the world.
