As one of a number of recent product launches Monitor Audio, a world leading manufacturer of audio solutions, have announced the availability of their new Vecta V240 all-weather wall speakers. Available from March 2018 onwards, the Vecta speakers are described by the company as combining ‘architectural aesthetics, high quality professional audio performance and weather resistance’.
Somewhat different to most of Monitor Audio’s high quality speaker ranges, the Vecta V240 speakers are oval in shape and are specially designed to be wall mounted on the exterior wall of an owner’s home.
In order to easily accommodate that style of installation, the speakers use cleverly designed brackets and a single point automatic connection system. That means they can be simply dropped into place within their V-mount bracket – either horizontally or vertically – with the use of just a single screw. The speaker, too, can blend seamlessly under eaves or in vertical corners and comes in a choice of UV resistant white or black finishes.
The driver technology and materials within the Vecta speakers, meanwhile, do borrow from other speakers within the Monitor Audio range. Ceiling or wall reflections are minimised by a dual four inch C-CAM metal cone which meets a curved baffle to control sound dispersal.
A centrally mounted 25mm Gold C-CAM tweeter, meanwhile, is horn loaded to also optimise dispersion at the crossover point. As one would expect from an exterior speaker, the Vecta also boasts an IP55 protection rating.
