MONITOR AUDIO WT380-IDC Premium In-Wall Speaker (White) (Discontinued Model)

Years Active 2012-2017

The Monitor Audio WT380-IDC in-wall loudspeaker features an 8" C-CAM RST bass driver and a pivoting IDC module, housing a 4" C-CAM RST inverted midrange driver and a 1" C-CAM gold dome tweeter. This true 3-way design provide rich midrange detail, higher system output, greater power handling, and superior vocal intelligibility and sound localization.

The Monitor Audio WT380-IDC in-wall speaker employs a unique pivoting Inverted Dual Concentric (IDC) midrange/tweeter module which allows you to angle the midrange and tweeter up/down or left/right. This allows for the in-wall speaker to be discreetly positioned and the sound to be directed toward the listening zone by pivoting the IDC driver module to maximize performance. With the IDC module installed, the in-wall speaker becomes a true 3-way design, offering superior performance and flexibility over typical 2-way or fixed angle speakers. Within the proprietary IDC module an inverted 4" midrange driver provides superior dispersion while enabling the midrange cone and tweeter dome assembly to be set as far forward as possible, allowing the clear acoustics of the desired listening zone and reducing undesirable diffraction effects. It's impossible to avoid diffraction effects from conventional two-way designs, which locate the bass driver 3" to 6" behind the speaker grille.

Unit of Measure: Each

Features:

Controls: The WT380-IDC offers High Frequency, Mid Frequency, and Boundary Compensation controls on the front-baffle, hidden behind the grille.

  • High Frequency Level Control: A HF (High Frequency) level adjustment also aids in high frequency performance. With the High Frequency Level Control set to "0", the in-wall speaker will give you a neutral sound. Switching to the "+3db" setting will give the high frequencies a boost, giving you more clarity and presence in the treble. If you want more prominence in the bass frequencies, switch to the "-3db" setting. The HF level adjustment switch is located on front of the baffle behind the grille.
  • Mid Frequency Level Control: A MF (Mid Frequency) level adjustment also aids in midrange frequency performance. With the High Frequency Level Control set to "0", the in-wall speaker will give you a neutral sound. Switching to the "+3db" setting will give the high frequencies a boost, giving you more clarity and presence in the midrange. If you want more prominence in the high & low frequencies, switch to the "-3db" setting. The MF level adjustment switch is located on front of the baffle behind the grille.
  • Boundary Compensation Control: The Boundary Compensation control reduces the speaker's bass output level to compensate for the greater reflection of bass energy when the speaker is placed near a wall. It can be set to "On" or "Off". The Boundary Compensation control is located on the front baffle and hidden behind the grille.

Spring-Post Terminals: The Monitor Audio WT380-IDC is outfitted with two gold-plated spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals which accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana plugs (sing/dual), and angled pin-connectors.

"Trimless" Magnetic Grille: The WT380-IDC in-wall speaker features a steel-mesh grille that is held in place by high strength Neodymium magnets covering the entire speaker for a true "trimless", stealth look. The grille is paintable to blend with the living environment; additional scrim material is provided for trouble free painting.

Tri-Grip Fixing System: Monitor Audio's innovative Tri-Grip fixing system is easier to install than conventional clamping schemes and provides 3x the surface area and a better surface seal, maximizing bass response and midrange clarity. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough re-enforced polymer, giving a secure installation.

  • Cutout Size: 9.25" (w) x 15.1875" (h)
  • Mounting Depth: 4.0"
  • Drywall Thickness: 0.125" to 1.75"

Protective Covers: The Monitor Audio WT380-IDC features a dust protection cover that is designed to prevent the ingress of dirt or dust into the driver and crossover.
