Monitor Audio combines versatility, style and audio performance with its New Vecta speaker
Great sound, whether inside or out
Monitor Audio, the British loudspeaker specialist, is expanding its comprehensive range of speakers with the introduction of a stylish, compact and versatile model with weather resistant properties, Vecta V240. Cleverly combining architectural aesthetics with innovation and the high quality professional audio performance that the company is renowned for, installers now have a solution that can be used both inside and out.
“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” comments 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 offers incredible versatility and simple installation. Using cleverly designed brackets and a single point automatic connection system, Vecta can be quickly and easily mounted horizontally or vertically. 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 it also simplifies the complexity of installing speakers at height or at difficult angles. An automatic connection system means that the install is extremely sleek, with no wires visible. To ensure clients receive the best audio possible, when mounted to the wall with the V-mount bracket, Vecta can be angled by 25 degrees or tilted a further 32.5 degrees (using the optional wedge) to direct the audio to the desired location.
Driver and system design
Outdoor speakers require a different approach, as the systems need to be capable of delivering a high quality audio standard in external conditions and locations. For the Vecta V240, Monitor Audio has mounted dual 4” C-CAM metal cone drives to the curved baffle to ensure a controlled sound field is delivered. 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. This approach results in the ultimate audio experience, with fewer audio black spots.
The aesthetics match the performance of this speaker, as Monitor Audio has paid close attention to the design. Developed with a curved tapered back cabinet in black or white, the Vecta V240 blends seamlessly under eaves or in vertical corners. The speakers are cased in a high-density ABS enclosure with rust proof grille that is designed to withstand extreme environmental exposure. The completely 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, and installers have access to the company’s top class service and support team.
