Monitor Audio Vecta-V240 (Black or White)
Monitor Audio is a British owned specialist in hi-fi loudspeaker design, incorporating stereo and surround sound systems, and a range of sonically matched installation speakers for ultra discreet high quality sound around the home and outside.
Whatever your taste and budget, youll discover a Monitor Audio speaker that, with a combination of superior design and build, offers great sound. Since hi-fi was in its infancy, Monitor Audio has dedicated all their technical expertise, innovation and craftsmanship to the creation of world-class loudspeakers.
By consistently refining and applying their technologies, Monitor Audio has become the worlds foremost expert in developing metal dome drivers. Metal is not the easiest material to work with, which is why many of their competitors choose paper or plastic. But it does have amazing properties for more life-like sound reproduction.
The C-CAM® drivers used in many of their speakers are very light, but very rigid and strong. This magical mix of properties leaves them light enough to respond to the finest musical nuance and tough enough to stay in shape while resisting the extreme bending forces of deep bass frequency reproduction. They can also be designed much smaller than conventional drivers and still reproduce, without distortion, sounds way beyond the limits of human audibility.

Controls & Adjustments
The stylish, compact and versatile Monitor Audio Vecta V240 speaker combines architectural aesthetics with innovation and high quality professional audio performance.
Using cleverly designed brackets and a single point automatic connection system, Vecta can be quickly and easily mounted horizontally or vertically. Installers fix the bracket to the wall, and then simply drop the speaker in place and secure with a single screw. Not only does this installation method save integratorsí time, but it also simplifies the complexity of installing speakers at height or at difficult angles. An automatic connection system means that the install is extremely sleek, with no wires visible. To ensure clients receive the best audio possible, when mounted to the wall bracket, Vecta can be angled by 25 degrees or tilted a further 32.5 degrees (using the optional wedge) to direct the audio to the desired location.
When installing speakers outside, a different approach is required, as these systems need to be capable of delivering a high quality audio standard in external conditions and locations. For the Vecta V240, Monitor Audio has mounted dual 101.6mm C-CAM metal cone drives to the curved baffle to ensure a controlled sound field is delivered. This minimises ceiling or wall reflections when mounted under eaves or in a corner, while still being wide enough for superior coverage when wall-mounted. The centrally mounted Gold C-CAM tweeter is horn loaded to ensure dispersion at the crossover point matches the mid-range, providing a smooth off axis frequency response. This approach results in the ultimate audio experience, with fewer audio black spots.
The aesthetics match the performance of this speaker, as Monitor Audio has paid close attention the design. Developed with a curved tapered back cabinet in black or white, the Vecta V240 blends seamlessly under eaves or in vertical corners. The speakers are cased in a high-density ABS enclosure with rust proof grille that is designed to withstand extreme environmental exposure. The completely sealed box cabinet is free from air noise or potential ingress of water and dirt, which helps to maintain the IP55 environmental protection rating.
