Monitor Audio Sound Frame Overview - Picture Wall Speakers

by Aiden Tingley

 

Hi, I'm Aiden from KB Audio and this is the Monitor Audio Sound Frame

This is a picture speaker from monitor audio. It's a cross over from audiophile speaker and installation speaker.

This is the sound frame 1, which is roughly 55cm by 90cm. They also do the sound frame 2 which is a taller or longer depending on the orientation and they also do a smaller cubed speaker called the sound frame 3.

All of these models are available in Gloss black or gloss white. The picture insert can be changed. Monitor Audio have a selection of premade prints or you can get a custom print for yours.

These speakers can either go on the wall or you can recess them in for a more discreet look.

At the top is a 6.5" c-cam bass driver and RTS ribben Structured Cone.

C-cam or Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium is a material originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. Its properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency.

The Rigid Surface Technology (RST) cone profile is inspired by the Japanese art of Origami, which demonstrates how a very light material (like paper) can be strengthened and made more rigid by making small and precise folds on its surface. 

Underneath the main cone is the IDC unit which is a dual concentric 2 way unit. essentially it has a mid range and tweeter in one unit. 

The IDC can Pivot to get a better focus of sound depending on the sitting arrangement. 

And below that are the 2 Screw terminals with a wire hole so you can bring the cable through from the back. 

It has simple keyhole fixings on the rear for super easy installation.
