Stereo Playback from a Single Speaker
Here's a great problem-solving speaker for rooms where you want to hear high-quality music playback, but just have room for a single speaker. The Monitor Audio AWC280-T2 uses a dual-tweeter design to deliver the complete stereo mix without the need for an additional speaker.
It's perfect for kitchens, hallways, or any other room where you want music from a single in-ceiling location. The AWC280-T2 is also moisture-resistant, so you can use it in humid areas like your bathroom or covered porch with confidence. You'll enjoy solid bass from the 8" woofer, and smooth highs from two 1" gold dome C-CAM® tweeters.
A Built-in Enclosure Elevates your Sound
One of the best features about this speaker is its built-in back-box. This carefully designed enclosure helps the speaker deliver consistently focused, well-balanced sound no matter what kind of space is behind it in your ceiling. It also keeps dust, dirt, and moisture out of your speaker.
Optional square grille can be used with this model.
