Monitor Audio has just announced the Super Slim In Wall (WSS) speaker range that will become available this February. The range will consists of three new models, each featuring a three-driver layout that helps keep the frontal profile slender, yet provides a similar surface area and performance to a typical 6-1/2″ driver. At just 2″ (50 mm) deep, it opens up a raft of installation scenarios and provides huge flexibility when it comes to placement for the most technically demanding applications.
Here are some highlights of each model:
WSS130 – $349 each
The entry-point WSS130 features 3″ MMP II cone drivers, augmented by a 1″ (25 mm) Gold Dome tweeter and is likely to excel in many general home theater and music applications. This MPP cone technology allows for a simple crossover design and smooth overall sound character.
WSS230 – $449 each
The mid-point WSS230 features Monitor Audio’s renowned C-CAM metal cone drivers and is ideal for set-ups where even more critical music reproduction is required. It offers a step-up in performance in increased precision and detailed sonic characteristics, when compared to the WSS130.
WSS430 – $649 each
The WSS430 offers supreme audio performance, drawing on design principles and materials from Monitor Audio’s flagship Platinum speakers. Employing dished C-CAM cones, the WSS430 design ensures ultimate diaphragm rigidity and control when driven hard. High strength Neo magnets and larger voice coils provide incredible driving force and a slim profile.
The MPD high frequency transducer technology, also from Monitor Audio’s flagship Platinum designs, ensures incredibly low distortion, delivering natural, clear high frequencies to over 50 kHz.
All WSS speakers feature Tri-Grip fixing technology and paintable, trimless grilles.
