Tannoy recently launched the easy-to-install iw6TDC and iw6DS(pictured) in-wall loudspeakers. The units feature a six-clamp mountingsystem and slim profile, which reportedly ensures performance-enhancingrigid acoustic coupling with the wall surface. A termination block isprovided to enable quick connection with optimum input signalintegrity.

To safeguard the high frequency unit against being overdriven, bothmodels are equipped with a progressively acting thermal protectiondevice. Additionally, the white perforated metal grille and discreetmounting frame can be painted to blend with most environments.

The iw6DS utilizes a discrete driver configuration combining a6.5-inch bass driver with a Wideband™ SuperTweeter. The use of anextended frequency tweeter in this model provides audible improvements,even when using conventional bandwidth limited analogue or digitallyrecorded software.

The latest fully re-engineered version of the Tannoy 6.5-inch DualConcentric™ and SuperTweeter are employed in the iw6TDC. The timecoherent and constant directivity dispersion characteristic inherent inthe Dual Concentric makes it suitable for in-wall use. The high levelof linear cone excursion of the Dual allows increased bass power outputwith excellent transient behavior at all power levels.

Both models became available for shipping in January, 2004.
