Definitive Technology’s Dymension CI Speaker Series Want to Fill Your Home with Music and Cinema Sound: CEDIA 2023

Definitive Technology announces 13 new Dymension CI series in-wall and in-ceiling speakers offering high-performance, weather protection and easy-to-integrate designs.

Definitive Technology Dymension CI PRO and CI MAX Series In-wall and in-ceiling speakers

The CI category has become incredibly lucrative and almost every major brand has pivoted in some manner into the vertical to capitalize on the strong consumer interest that really took off during the pandemic.

In-wall and In-ceiling loudspeakers are an easier sell for most home owners and whilst that might not be great news for manufacturers who remain committed to bookshelf and floor standing models — custom integrators have a significantly larger pool of customers in 2023 and that is great news for brands like Definitive Technology who are pushing hard into the space with their new Dimension CI Series Loudspeakers.

Definitive Technology is unveiling the Dymension CI Series custom integration product line at CEDIA 2023 (Booth #3012). The series of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers is available in two performance levels: Dymension CI PRO and Dymension CI MAX.
