Stealth Patio Theater Project Takes Backyard Viewing to the Extreme!



When one thinks of lavish outdoor living, places like Southern California or Florida might be among the first locales that spring to mine. But right in the heartland of America, in the Midwest state of Indiana, there’s backyard entertainment that would be the envy of homeowners on either coast, thanks to the implementation of one of Stealth Acoustics’ massive Stealth Patio Theater system...


The clients had three core criteria in the design goals of the project, according to TRIPhase President and Founder Robert Haecker:

  • Install as large a TV as possible that could also be hidden when not in use

  • Deliver the most incredible audio possible for their space, but also directional so it wouldn’t disturb their neighbors

  • Create an easy-to-use system that would be compatible with their existing Elan (Nice) home automation system.

As a Stealth Acoustics dealer, TRIPhase Technologies knew just what the project called for in this case to address the customers’ three main wishes. So, they worked with the Mount Vernon, Wash., based company on the design and installation of a Stealth Patio Theater Extreme retractable outdoor LED entertainment system...




The TRIPhase Technologies clients dreamed of creating the ultimate outdoor entertainment area for their four children. “They wanted a Disney-like experience with incredible sound and a cinema-sized screen viewable from the pool and surrounding areas to maximize time, activities, and fun,” Haecker says.

“This was one of the most beautiful and fun projects we’ve had the pleasure of being involved with.” 


The biggest challenge was the lack of access to the installation location. After installing the new pool, there wasn’t enough room for heavy equipment to transport the 1,800-pound Stealth Patio Theater to the specified location, Haecker explains. “Ultimately, a crane company lifted the unit over the pool and put it into its proper place!”




When not in use, the enormous TV and integrated LCR soundbar hide away at the touch of a button.

This solution is composed of many 12-inch LED screens that snap together and give the client what they envisioned. With the LED solution, it is effective in sunlight as well, Haecker notes.

With the new SPT system beautifully set into the landscaping and operated with simple controls from their Nice system alongside the other existing systems inside and outside the home, the customers have everything they envisioned.
