Whispering Window® is a surface mount window speaker that adds the vital dimension to the best retail store window displays: sound.
Turn Windows into Glass Speakers for Retail, Museum Display Cases, Art Installations and more
Feonic Whispering Window™ is a powerful surface vibration transducer that turns glass windows into glass speakers. This to deliver sound only where required: straight in front of the item on display.
Use to entertain; to provide information; or for consumer retail sales and marketing messages.
You can use audio to attract the attention of people who may otherwise walk past your premises, art installation or museum display case.
Not just a Window Speaker
Our main website provides a helpful guide to the many applications where our customers turn anything into a speaker. Use on resonant surfaces such as:
- wooden panels or wooden floors
- drywall / plasterboard wall and ceiling panels
- sheet metal
- plexiglass and other acrylic and plastic surfaces
- and of course glass, including standalone or hanging panels for artworks; display cases; museum cabinets or heavy and even bomb-proof store window panes
Generally anything you can tap which results in a pleasing sound.
Feonic lead development of this powerful micro vibration technology and have done for over 15 years. Look for the Feonic Logo.

Small Box : Big Sound
Feonic drives are similar to piezoelectric transducers but use a technology called Magnetostriction – learn more on wikipedia. This smart material technology emits micro vibrations with massive force but with very low amplitude (see our Wikipedia page). These micro vibrations mean that, unlike other superficially similar devices, Feonic vibration speakers won’t damage the surface you mount them on.
Micro Vibration Speakers – Fatigue and Stress
Table showing how the Feonic drives create micro vibrations up to 750 times smaller than a typical cone speaker (as used in many in wall speakers). This indicates how a Feonic solution won’t cause structural fatigue or stress which could lead to damage to resonant surfaces
Additionally, unlike regular cone or box speakers, using Whispering Window won’t obstruct the view through glass. And because the sound is evenly distributed throughout the surface, you won’t have to crank it up to annoying levels.
People will be able to hear your messages while still being able to carry on a conversation and have a pleasant experience. Whispering Window sound is passive but it provides a dynamic attention grabbing tool.
Peel and Stick – Simple, Quick, Cheap and Reversible Installation
Whispering Window speaker drives are small and unobtrusive. One or two drives are easily mounted on any glass surface (using a removable sticky pad) and are powered by an amplifier. Feonic can supply suitable amplifiers which can work from any sound source (CD Player, DVD Player, MP3 Player etc). You can of course use your own amplifier. No need to mount box loudspeakers outside with consequent drilling into exterior walls or window frames. No damage to delicate surfaces.
