The Monitor Audio IWS-10 in-wall subwoofer driver employs an extraordinarily rigid, flat 10” surface of 10mm (3/8”) RDT® material derived from Monitor audio’s acclaimed ‘Platinum’ series of high-end speakers. Rigid Diaphragm Technology is a sandwich of C-CAM® alloy, bonded to a honeycomb Nomex core. The resulting properties of low mass and great strength give the driver the ability to behave as an extremely agile piston, resistant to bending, light enough to deliver an accurate bass response through large excursions, even within a shallow 81mm profile. A large vented pole helps to move air quickly, reducing power compression and increasing heat dissipation.
Note: We recommend the use of the Monitor Audio IWB-10 back box for best results. The IWB-10 features Monitor Audio’s patented Tri-Grip® clamping system which is easier to install and provides three times the surface area of a conventional dog-leg type clamp for better overall surface sealing. The IWS-10’s trim-less grille and frame edge are paintable to blend discreetly with décor. When used with the IWB-10 back box, the IWS-10 will return optimum ‘controlled’ performance.
We also recommend use of the Monitor Audio IWA-250 amplifier with this subwoofer. A slim, powerful dedicated design in a heavy-duty 1U rack mount case.
