Can I purchase my frame without an AcoustiMat?
Yes, you can purchase a frame without an AcoustiMat. However, you may not be satisfied with the end result as this would result in many of the manufacturer’s markings and part of the plastic bezel still being visible within the perimeter of the frame. The result might look somewhat unfinished. Alternatively, attempting to cover the speakers with frame molding would muffle the sound.
Design Tip: To configure a frame without and AcoustiMat during the design process you can select “None” under the speaker concealment tab to see how your TV & Frame will appear.
Do I still need the AcoustiMat if I don’t plan to use the built-in speakers?
Generally any television with fixed built-in speakers you will need an AcousitMat™ for complete concealment to the screens edge or part of the television’s bezel will still be visible.
The only exception we’ve found is a television with detachable speakers or the Toshiba 40RF350U or the 46RF350U which has an extremely thin horizontal speaker bar.
Why is the AcoustiMat wider on either the bottom or the left & right side of the television?
The AcoustiMat is used to mask a television’s built-in speakers. To do so the side of the television which contains the speakers will have a wider AcoustiMat to prevent obstructing the audio. On some televisions this can mean a bezel of up to 4 or 5” may be necessary. If the AcoustiMat were equidistant on all four sides this would make for an extremely large frame and may also make the screen look smaller. If an equidistant perimeter is your preference we would recommend purchasing a television with an extremely slim speaker bar such as the Toshiba 40RF350U or the 46RF350U.
