Default A truly hidden Speaker - SoldidDrive: "Sound without Speakers"

What about this kind of transducer/loudspeaker setup ?

Solid Drive - Hidden In-Wall Speakers by SolidDrive (Induction Dynamics)
http://www.soliddrive.com/pdfs/solid-drive-brochure.pdf

It looks for me like the so called "body shaker" similar to that about
http://s345529248.e-shop.info/.media/747001551234.jpeg

Are there any experiences?
Is it rather "Hi-Fi", "Mid-Fi" or "Low-Fi" ??

IMHO it's mid-fi or low-fi, depending on the surface they're mounted to.

I've played around with audio transducers on various surfaces and, while I found the experience fun and the sound interesting, they don't trump boxed or open baffle speakers UNLESS you just don't want to look at speakers.

Although not about SolidDrive units, this thread has a bit of info on transducer application;
NXT.......rubbish??....THINK AGAIN! )

And besides, @$500 per unit (per channel!) is a bit stiff.

Looks like a variant of the NXT speakers.
Just don't expect too much and you'll be okay.
