Monitor Audio is looking to combine versatility, style and audio performance with its cleverly-designed Vecta speaker for interior and exterior use.
With weather-resistant properties, the maker says Vecta V240 combines architectural aesthetics with innovation and high quality professional audio performance.
“Providing a high-quality audio experience, whether it be inside the home, a restaurant or gym, or in the outdoor areas of these venues – has become increasingly popular,” says Dean Hartley, Monitor Audio’s technical director.
“Thanks to our heritage in high end audio, we have developed a speaker that has been engineered to the highest possible standard, and will deliver an excellent audio performance wherever it is installed.”
The Vecta V240 is designed to offer versatility and simple installation using specially designed brackets and a single point automatic connection system. Vecta can be quickly and easily mounted horizontally or vertically, says Monitor Audio, as 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 integrators’ time, but the manufacturer adds that it also simplifies the complexity of installing speakers at height or at difficult angles. An automatic connection system means that the install is sleek, with no wires visible.
To ensure clients receive the best audio, when mounted to the wall with the V-mount bracket, Vecta can be angled by 25° or tilted a further 32.5° (using the optional wedge) to direct the audio to the desired location.
Outdoor speakers of course need to be able to deliver in some challenging environments and for the Vecta V240, Monitor Audio has mounted dual 4in C-CAM metal cone drives to the curved baffle to help with delivering a controlled sound field.
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. Monitor Audio says this approach results in a high-quality experience, with fewer audio black spots.
Developed with a curved tapered back cabinet in black or white, the Vecta V240 is designed to blend under eaves or in vertical corners and the speakers are cased in a high-density ABS enclosure with rust proof grille that is designed to withstand extreme environmental exposure.
The sealed box cabinet is free from air noise or potential ingress of water and dirt, which helps to maintain the IP55 environmental protection rating.
As with most Monitor Audio Custom Install products, the Vecta V240 is available with a lifetime warranty.
