Picture Integrated Cinema Speakers

Internal Proof Only - Do Not Distribute

The best looking In-wall speaker ever created





Introducing PICS from VIBE The best sound It’s not a speaker mounted in a cheap plastic white grill mounted to your wall or tiny tweeter stuck in the corner of your room. PICS is a studio quality speaker that in appearance looks like a picture.

The best looking The grill of the PICS speaker can be a picture of you and your family, a favourite photograph or a print

The best solution


from your favourite artist.

Totally flexible speakers with multiple size options to fit any room, any size, blending perfectly



with your personal taste and the design and dĂŠcor of the room.

PICS speakers deliver true hi-fi sound quality due to their high quality speakers mounted in a perfectly measured, finely tuned wooden cabinet as opposed to a cheap plastic frame used by most in-wall speakers.

Design with function 4

Example The customer’s requirement was to create a dual purpose room that can not only be used as the main family room but also a home theatre room. The room is set out as a 9.1 home cinema system using a combination of PICS 5566, PICS 555588 and PICS 10 SUB. The PICS 555588 have been mounted in portrait orientation and the PICS 5566 have been mounted with the woofers at the top to allow the tweeters on all of the speakers to be on the same plane to give the best possible sonic performance.

ARTWORK Acoustically transparent Every PICS image is printed onto our specially developed ‘acoustically transparent’ PICS cloth. The process begins with the artwork you supply being printed onto a transfer paper. The print is then allowed to dry fully. The printed transfer paper is then fed over a heated roller along with the unique PICS cloth. As the dyes reach their sublimation temperature, they become gaseous and the only destination for the reactive gaseous molecules is the fabric surface. The result of this is a vibrant, full colour image that does not muffle the sound from your PICS speaker.

It’s your choice PICS is about more than just great sound, PICS can be customised with artwork of your choice. Inspirational, abstract, nature, a family photograph almost any image can be printed onto PICS You can choose from our huge range stock of images, or from our illustration partners. When purchasing VIBE PICS you receive your standard grills in white or black. After you have purchased your PICS System You can cheaply acquire your own choice of images or own artwork by logging online to the VIBE PICS website and following the online artwork submission form. PICS frames are supplied in either a matt white or matt black finish. The frame material is suitable for painting and can therefore be customised to a colour of your choice.
