Monitor Audio WSS-230
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 mid-point WSS230 offers a step-up in performance – additions include Monitor Audio’s renowned C-CAM metal drivers, delivering increased precision and detailed sonic characteristics.
Constructions featuring 50.8mm studs slips, or with mounting restricted by AVC ducts, cabling or pipework are no problem for the WSS230. These models can also be installed between a standard 355.6mm stud bay, when used in a horizontal (portrait) orientation. Consequently, the same speakers can be installed around a screen, keeping the same neat visuals, as well as identical L-C-R performance.
To provide protection from damage by residual masonry or building materials, Monitor Audio designed a protective cover to keep the drivers and crossover safe. And the trim-less grille not only provides protection, it also adopts an incredibly discreet and low-profile aesthetic appearance. These covers can be painted to achieve seamless décor integration, with the supplied replacement scrim maintaining the stealthy presence of the speaker once decorating is done. Nice and neat. Super strong, magnetically attached rare earth magnets ensure long-term security, coupled with easy installation and servicing.
