Do you really price match?
We will match any e-Commerce (Online store) Authorized USA Dealer's advertised price. Please call us toll free (877) 370-1972 and alert us to where you found the product cheaper. We will verify, and if the site is an Authorized US Dealer- we will match their price. However, if the price is below the manufacturer Minimum Advertised Price (MAP)- we will have to get authorization to match the price. We will not violate our signed agreements that we have with our vendors.
What about price matching from an auction site?
We do not price match any auction or "grey market" site.
Be advised, any purchases from an auction or unauthorized (grey market) websites can lead to future issues in regards to warranty or support. Most manufacturers will not honor any claims or warranty from these type of sales. Spend your money wisely by purchasing from an Authorized Dealer. In a lot of cases, saving a little bit of money can cost you more after the sale is completed.

SoundTube - SS30 - Focus Point Speaker (Single)
Secret Sound® is a museum-quality parabolic speaker which projects a focused beam of sound onto any exhibit without distracting audio spillover. It was designed by museum professionals to be easily installed, ceiling mounted at any height, and maintenance free, and has been in use by major institutions around the world since 1986.
The speaker housing combines reduced size and elegant design with high-tech materials and performance. Only slightly larger than a baseball, the molded-composite housing provides a strong, clean sound ideally suited for all audio presentations. The composite construction combines strength and durability with improved damping. Secret Sound® is available with a choice of three parabolas: clear, black or white. All units are in stock and can be shipped within 24 hours of our receipt of your order.
The Secret Sound installation is similar to that of a ceiling-mounted electrical map. The black steel coupling has ½” inside threads which can be attached to standard rigid electrical conduit with ½” outside threads. This conduit is generally mounted directly to the ceiling using a standard electrical junction box.
Once you have mounted your rigid conduit from the ceiling, bring the speaker wired from the sound source through the conduit so approximately two inches of wire are protruding from the threaded bottom end. Before connecting the speaker, position it on a steady ladder or scaffold near the end of the ceiling mounted conduit. Now connect the wire ends from the coupling to the ends of your wire coming from the sound source. Once the wires are connected, “pre-rotate” the speaker 6 or 8 times counter-clockwise. This will prevent the speaker wire connection from becoming too twisted when threaded onto the coupling.
Thread the coupling onto the end of the conduit and hand tightened firmly. The speaker is now ready to operate. The speaker can be mounted at any height off the floor with minimal affect on the diameter or quality of the bean of focused sound. The parabolic reflection can be painted without affecting the speaker performance, although it is recommended that the underside be painted with a gloss finish to insure optimum sound reflection.
