  • [15:15]        Jaime: Hello, how may I help you?
  • [15:16] Customer: I am looking at Lunette series screens in 135 inch.
  • [15:17] Customer: I see that there are 2 types in this, CineWhite and AcousticPro1080P3.
  • [15:17] Customer: 1) what is the difference between these two?
  • 2) Also what is the difference between Lunette and Lunette series 2?
  • [15:17]        Jaime: Acoustically transparent materials like the AcousticPro1080P3 are for placing in front of in-wall speakers.  This allows sound and image to come from the same point of origin without the sound being muffled by the screen.
  • [15:18]        Jaime: The only difference with the Lunette and Lunette 2 is that the second version comes with a full installation kit.
  • [15:19] Customer: ok, CineWhite & AcousticPro?  How is Cinewhite different.
  • [15:20]        Jaime: Acousticpro is acoustically transparent is for use with in-wall speakers behind it.
  • [15:20]        Jaime: Cinewhite is solid white material. It costs a bit less but gives a little more picture brightness.
  • [15:20] Customer: Ok got it. You mean I can put the speakers behind the AcousticPro 1080P3 screen?
  • [15:20]        Jaime: that is correct
  • [15:20] Customer: There would not be any problems with the sound?
  • [15:20]        Jaime: No, the material is specifically designed for sound to pass through with minimal attenuation.
  • [15:21] Customer: I am going to use Bose speakers.
  • [15:21]        Jaime: Nice choice.  If they are in-wall, use the acoustically transparent material.  If they are not, get a regular Cinewhite screen.  The two will work great together.
  • [15:21] Customer: Ok, speaker brands don’t matter?
  • [15:22] Customer: bose, xyz etc….?
  • [15:22]        Jaime: Brands only matter to your preference, not the screen. To learn more about the acoustic material, please follow this link:
  • [15:24] Customer: Ok I am looking at one on Amazon. Lunette series AcousticPro 1080P3 is cheaper than your website.  What’s the difference?
  • [15:25]        Jaime: Prices simply vary from place to place.  The product is the same.
