Clambering around the attic, basement, or crawlspace; drilling holes; fishing wire; installing junction boxes-it all adds up to misery. Sometimes you just don't have a choice. But if you're looking to install speakers in your home's ceiling, and your ceiling has existing recessed-lighting fixtures, Klipsch's LightSpeaker is an ingenious solution: The speaker half of the equation features a 20-watt digital amplifier, a 2.5-inch micro-cellulose polymer speaker cone, a wireless 2.4GHz receiver, and an LED light source that fits inside most any five- or six-inch ceiling can."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1288986477.usr11334.jpg" style="border: 0;" /></p><p>This is a new one for me! I've heard of wireless speakers before, but not ones that fin in to recessed lights in the ceiling.&nbsp; Wireless speakers is something I've been interested in for a while since my living room isn't exactly easy for locating wired rear speakers in the correct place.&nbsp; I've had concerns about whether the quality would be good enough, and with all the wireless routers around, mobile, microwaves etc, I do wonder if there would be too much interference.&nbsp; All this has put me off purchasing so far, but I have followed the changes in technology as it happens.&nbsp; I don't have recessed lights so this isn't a product that would work for me, but I do like the innovative idea.</p>
