Monitor Audio WSS430 Overview
If you're looking for a high-quality in wall speaker that isn't going to take up too much space in your home, then this new line from Monitor Audio may be perfect for you. They're super slim, with a 50mm depth, and they've got a host of interesting features to help you get the most out of your installation.
The Monitor Audio WSS430 is a top of the range model from their Super Slim series that can be used in both general home theatre and music applications. Its three bass/midrange drivers are augmented by a tweeter, and it's capable of handling sound from the highest quality speakers.
You can also remove the model's magnetic front trim and rotate the tweeter to provide optimum dispersion when using it in landscape orientation.
The dished C-CAM cones and high-strength Neo magnets help to ensure a strong driving force, while larger voice coils offer a more efficient design and a flatter frequency response. This is all in addition to Monitor Audio's patented MPD high-frequency transducer technology from their Platinum II designs, which should deliver clear high frequencies to over 50 kHz with a very low level of distortion.
Monitor Audio WSS430 Features
Its dished C-CAM cone bass-mid drivers and 25 mm MPD tweeter, which are seen in their flagship Platinum II designs, offer a high level of performance with great efficiency, damping, and rigidity. They're also able to deliver an incredibly low level of distortion and have excellent high-frequency responses.
There are two models in the range - the WSS130 and the WSS230 - with each having its own different driver configurations, so you can choose the right model for your specific installation needs. Each is designed to be used between standard 14" stud bays, and both are fitted with Monitor Audio's patented "tri-grip" fixing technology as used in their CT and WT ranges, meaning you'll have robust tri-grip dog fixings on the back of them for long term security.
They have a magnetic paintable trim-less grille, so you can make them blend into your living space, and the supplied replacement scrim will keep them stealthy once they've been decorated. They also feature a specially designed protective cover, which helps protect the drivers and crossover from damage caused by residual masonry or building materials.
The dished C-CAM cones also allow for the use of a larger, more powerful tweeter than you would usually find in a smaller, in-wall speaker, which means that it can be used in high-powered and large-scale home theatre installations. Its MPP cone technology is also a good choice for general home cinema and music applications, as it can be tuned to fit the acoustic conditions in the room, and gives a smoother overall sound character.
