Sonance Visual Performance VP89 In-Wall Speakers Preview
Sonance Visual Performance Series speakers are designed with not only audio performance, but installation, spacial consideration and a discrete look in mind.  The VP89 is the flagship of the VP series, offering the highest quality Visual Performance speaker Sonance has to offer. The VP89 is a subtle speaker in appearance when fully installed.  Thanks to new micro-trim grilles from sonance, the portion sticking out from the wall measures a mere fifth of an inch.  The grille is simple to remove, paint and reattach.  Rather than using a more invasive method, powerful magnets hold the grille in place. Rather than the carbon fiber construction seen in previous models, the VP89 has beryllium drivers which Sonance says were utilized in order to deliver reference-quality sound.  The 8” woofer sports a rubber surround and an extended pole piece, which helps to ensure a smoother response.  ...

Atlantic Technology IWCB-52 In-wall Speakers
Introduction As of late, I’ve become increasingly interested in in-wall speakers, not only for their practicality, but also because they have become exceedingly good in providing truly reference grade sound in a sleek unobtrusive package. Nothing is sexier than having a guest walk into your listening room and be blown away at your system’s sound, only to ask, “Where are the speakers?” Because of these facts, my reference room features a complete in-wall speaker system from Meridian entirely hidden from view by a custom fabric wall as seen in the August edition of AVRev.com. However, not everyone has the budget or the means to welcome a speaker system such as the Meridian into the home. Hence my interest in the Atlantic Technology IWCB-52 in-wall speakers reviewed here. Why did I choose Atlantic Technology’s IWCB-52s for this review (and for my home) over the many other reputable and wonderful-sounding brands out there today? Simple. The IWCB-52s sound ...

Meridian 300 Series In-wall Loudspeaker System
Introduction When it came time to finally design and implement my new reference home theater, there were two things I knew I had to have. First was the ability to easily integrate and audition various components of all types without costly professional installation fees or outside programming. Second was for my reference system to feature only in-wall speakers. I have been a fan of in-walls (and on-walls, for that matter) for a long time now and, as technology has progressed, so has the quality of their sound. While nearly every speaker manufacturer has some sort of in-wall or on-wall line of products, finding ones that are truly reference grade can be a bit more daunting. I looked high and low during my search and compiled a list of potential candidates that would, I hoped, fit my needs. I met with and/or demoed the top offerings from RBH, Paradigm, Definitive, PSB and Meridian. While RBH, Paradigm, ...

PSB CW800E In-wall Speakers
Introduction There have been many challenges in rebuilding the AVRev.com reference theater (which I have previously written about and archived for Modern Home Theater how-to features, with more details to come). One of the challenges not discussed is what I was going to do with the living room where my former reference system lived. Removing the large equipment rack thankfully created more space that allowed for the sleek installation of a lightly tinted glass wall. Removal of the floor-to-ceiling, bird’s-eye maple media storage cabinet that housed my Stewart roll-down screen also opened up some serious space. The design challenge was unique, considering the entryway to the new theater, as well as the stairs leading to the new addition, is exactly where my Wilson WATT Puppy right speaker used to be placed – how could you get great sound in a room or, in this case, a series of rooms, including the living room, dining room ...

RBH MC-615-70 In-ceiling Speakers
Introduction When building my home theater, one of my biggest dilemmas was where to put the surround speakers. My theater is located in a room where a sectional sofa runs the full length of the back and side walls, so stand-mounted surrounds were out. Wall-mounted surrounds were out, too, as only one wide wall is available for speakers. The answer was to go up and ceiling-mount the surrounds. For my application, I chose the MC-615-70 from Utah-based speaker manufacturer RBH. This $299 (each) in-ceiling speaker features a 6.5-inch aluminum woofer and a one-inch swivel aluminum dome tweeter. A tweeter level control, accessed from the front of the speaker, allows you to choose from a standard-level setting or from -3dB or +3dB. The MC-615-70 has a frequency response of 50Hz - 20kHz±3dB, is 88dB efficient and features a built-in 70-volt multi-tap transformer. These speakers are rated at 120 watts at eight ohms and have a crossover ...
