Excellent sound with all-weather capability

Planning a new in-ceiling audio system in non-traditional rooms of your home? Then consider Monitor Audio’s AWC280 in-ceiling speaker — part of the company’s all-weather “AW” series that lets you enjoy clear, full-range sound in areas that are exposed to the elements. Use this speaker for a neat-looking (and great-sounding) custom installation in your bathroom, on your porch, or in other areas where “regular” speakers aren’t suitable.

The back of the Monitor Audio AWC280 in-ceiling speaker is encased in tough mineral-filled polymer to prevent dirt or moisture from getting in.

High-tech drivers for better sound

One of Monitor Audio’s hallmark technologies is their “C-CAM” driver material. It’s a ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine components. It’s super lightweight and strong, which allows the drivers to respond very quickly and precisely for accurate sound.

The AWC280’s 8″ woofer and 1″ dome tweeter are both made from this material. The tweeter is even treated with an anodized layer of gold for a smooth, extended high-frequency response.

Tailor the sound to your space

The AWC280 features a rear-panel, three-position output level switch which lets you cut or boost high frequencies — a valuable adjustment if you have reflective surfaces like hardwood floors or windows, or absorptive surfaces like thick carpets or upholstered furniture.
