An All Weather In-Ceiling Speaker
Monitor Audio believes that high-quality in-ceiling speakers shouldn't be confined to your living room or office. The AWC265 in-ceiling speaker is part of their all-weather "AW" series, which lets you enjoy clear, full-range sound in areas that are exposed to the elements. Use it for a neat-looking (and great-sounding) custom installation in your bathroom, on your porch, or in other areas where traditional speakers aren't suitable.
High Tech Drivers for Better Sound
One of Monitor Audio's hallmark technologies is their "C-CAM" driver material. It's a ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. It's super lightweight and strong, which allows the drivers to respond very quickly and precisely for accurate sound.
The AWC265's 6-1/2" woofer and 1" dome tweeter are both made from this material. The tweeter is even treated with an anodized layer of gold for smooth, extended high-frequency response.
Tailor the Sound to your Space
The AWC265 features a rear-panel, three-position output level switch which lets you cut or boost high frequencies — a valuable adjustment if you have reflective surfaces like hardwood floors or windows, or absorptive surfaces like thick carpets or upholstered furniture.
Optional square grille can be used with this model.
