LG’s new ‘invisible’ speakers could revolutionize car audio

LG Display has unveiled a ground-breaking new “invisible” speaker technology for automobiles, with a flat panel system that can easily be placed in headrests as well as car dashboards.

Developed as a direct replacement by the South Korean tech giant for traditional speakers in vehicles, the Thin Actuator Sound Solution (opens in new tab) system does away with the regular protruding voice coils, cones and magnets found in most speakers and instead uses a film-like exciter membrane.
