The WSS230 design brings with it Monitor Audio's renowned C-CAM metal cone drivers, resulting in added sonic precision and detail. Offering a step-up from the WSS130, this Super Slim in-wall model is one for projects where (even) more critical music reproduction is required.
The mid-point WSS230 offers a step-up in performance – additions here include Monitor Audio’s renowned C-CAM metal drivers, delivering increased precision and detailed sonic characteristics.
The WSS230 makes you think again – the possibility of installation in constructions featuring 2" studs slips effortlessly into view. Mounting restricted by AVC ducts, cabling or pipework? No problem to this in-wall speaker, or any of the speakers in this range. These models can also be installed between a standard 14" stud bay, when used in a horizontal (portrait) orientation. Consequently, the same speakers can be installed around a screen, keeping the same neat visuals, as well as identical L-C-R performance.
To provide protection from damage by residual masonry or building materials, Monitor Audio designed a protective cover to keep the drivers and crossover safe. And the trim-less grille not only provides protection, it also adopts an incredibly discreet and low-profile aesthetic appearance. These covers can be painted to achieve seamless décor integration, with the supplied replacement scrim maintaining the stealthy presence of the speaker once decorating is done. Nice and neat. Super strong, magnetically attached rare earth magnets ensure long-term security, coupled with easy installation and servicing.
