How it works
Traditional cone-type speakers have been around for more than a century and have been plagued by the same problems all along: Limited coverage area. Unintelligible sound as soon as you move away from the center of the speaker.
Too-loud or too-soft volume, again depending on how close you are to the speaker.
“There’s a different way to handle audio, and it turns out to be a great value proposition for you while creating a compelling experience for your customers.”
The SSP6 excites the substrate to create a massive planar radiator.
These Planar waves form a virtual bubble of non-point source sound, engulfing the entire space in audio that is of even level throughout the frequency spectrum.
We call this Constant SPL Audio.
The DML technology
What is DML Technology?
Distributed Mode Loudspeaker technology utilizes planar wave physics to deliver professional-grade, full frequency audio via rigid panels (drywall, ceilings, ceiling tiles, window panes, wood cabinets, etc.). The sound created by DML technology is similar to that created from the body of an acoustic guitar or piano soundboard – high fidelity and completely immersive.
It’s like having a wall full of speakers, creating a massive planar acoustic wave. This wave radiates out evenly from the surface, providing constant sound pressure level (SPL) throughout the listening space – unlike the uneven pattern provided by traditional cone speakers. Because there are no hot spots in the audio, feedback loops into microphones are also eliminated.
Revolution Acoustics products are protected by numerous US and worldwide patents.
The problems: Beaming, “Hot and Cold” spots, very small “sweet spots” for listening
Conventional cone speakers “beam” the sound signal in a conical pattern, leaving large areas of the room without effective coverage.
The higher the frequencies, the more pronounced the beam effect. The result is muddy audio as you move off-axis from the center of the speaker. You also experience “hot” and “cold” audio from the speaker’s coverage, either too loud or not loud enough. The beaming effect creates a third problem, that of “sweet spots”. In home installations, careful attention is paid to placement of chairs in a listening area to ensure that ears are in line with the cone speakers’ high frequency content. This greatly limits what you can do with room setup and also makes it difficult for anyone moving around a room to enjoy the audio experience.
Revolution Acoustics SSP6 Multiducers™ solve this problem by equally radiating all frequencies across the space of the panel, using bending wave physics.
With Revolution Acoustics technology, sound is consistent across the entire plane. It diminishes at a rate of its distance (1/d) so at the same 10 foot distance from the radiating surface, the sound quality is orders of magnitude better than audio coming from cone speakers, and completely fills the room. For stereo or surround imaging, multiple SSP6 units can be separated within the space to build a “bubble” of sound that intersects for a whole-room sweet spot (or sweet “area”).
The Value Proposition:
Revolution Acoustics speakers can save time and money.
Because conventional speakers have conical waveforms, you need to install many of them in order to more effectively cover an area – and you still end up with hot and cold spots and off-axis muddiness.
Superior coverage can be achieved in the same space using fewer Revolution Acoustics SSP6 units. This brings a substantial savings in installation time and requires less wiring. Because the SSP6 was designed for high power handling, even high-acoustic-energy installations such as bars can take advantage of the Revolution Acoustics solution.
Magic? Not really – it’s just good science put to work to help resolve nearly all sound reinforcement applications.
The patented SSP6 Multiducer™
A Revolution in Speaker Technology.
The patented SSP6 Multiducer™ (Multifunctional Transducer) brings a revolution to not only invisible audio, but all kinds of installed speaker applications. Its sheer performance with high fidelity audio, high power handling and constant SPL throughout a listening space mean it’s the perfect speaker for sound masking, conference rooms, retail, restaurant, hospitality, house of worship, transportation and other commercial uses; its performance combined with fully invisible installation make it ideal for high end residential use.
The SSP6 Multiducer is a new class of product for transforming rigid surfaces – walls, ceilings, tables, windows, vehicles, and other surfaces – into full range audio speakers. It employs a different subset of acoustical physics – bending wave physics – giving you a true Distributed Mode Loudspeaker (DML) with no hot spots or off-axis high frequency dropoffs. (Read more about the technology behind the SSP6 here.)
The Revolutionary Choice for Sound Masking.
Because coverage is so broad and even, a single SSP6 unit can take the place of up to 9 “emitters” traditionally used in sound masking applications – saving money not only in equipment costs, but in labor and wiring. Combine it in 70V mode with our revolutionary RevNet 2140 amplifier, which incorporates a customizable sound masking generator, and you can install a comprehensive sound masking system for at a surprisingly low cost.

The “Swiss Knife” of all amps
Recognizing that traditional cone loudspeakers would always be plagued by the same concerns in high frequency dropoff and varying off-axis levels, Katz turned to the planar wave physics of Distributed Mode Loudspeakers, or DML. By using transducers to excite a rigid surface, sound is created in the same way an acoustic guitar or piano soundboard generates its immersive and accurate audio reproduction. But unlike other transducer products, which lack low end content and cannot handle much power, the Multiducer design generated by Katz’ team, and brought to the market in 2014, offers full fidelity along with high power handling that enables its use across a wide scope of applications.
The technology behind the SSP6 Multiducer carries numerous US and worldwide patents, and the SSP6 is IP66 rated for use in extreme environments.
SSP6 Multiducers have been used worldwide in installations ranging from five star hotels to high end shopping plazas to luxury yachts.
