Definitive Technology UIW RSS II (Each)
The UIW RSS II is another important new addition to Definitive's Reference Architectural Series. The RSS II is intended for rear or side surround use in 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or more channel custom-install systems of the highest quality. Like the other Reference Architectural Series speakers, the RSS II is a totally non-resonant sealed medite enclosure, which easily installs flush into walls or ceilings in either new or existing construction. It features a curved angle bipolar array, which is perfect for movie and music surround use because it provides an ideal combination of direct sound for specificity and localization and ambient sound for enhanced spaciousness.
The RSS II delivers uniquely enveloping surround performance totally immersing the listeners in a complete 360-degree soundstage. Walls seem to disappear and the listening room will be almost magically transformed into the location of the original sonic event. The curved aspect of the bipolar array further improves dispersion into the room. When installed in the ceiling, the direction in which the driver arrays face can be rotated 90 degrees in order to optimize the performance depending on the specific location of the speakers in relation to the seating area.
Each RSS II bipolar surround speaker contains two complete 3-way full-range systems for a total of 6 driver/radiators in each speaker. The RSS II's dynamic, spacious and uncolored sonic signature has been specifically engineered to blend perfectly with any of Definitive's loudspeakers whether freestanding, in-wall or in-ceiling for an amazing lifelike sonic experience.
Ultimate Performance Architectural Speakers
Home theater is hot today. And invisible home theater is even hotter. But until now, it was nearly impossible to experience the full on high performance of traditional loudspeakers using hidden in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Now, Definitive Technology would like to introduce you to the stealth sound system solution: Definitive Architectural Loudspeakers. These reference-quality loudspeakers deliver superb sound in unusual in-wall and in-ceiling installations for high end home or commercial applications: anywhere you want warm, rich, traditional performance without the cabinet-style traditional speaker! In-Wall and In-Ceiling installations deliver Definitive's smooth natural sound, reproduced with a lifelike, three-dimensional character that really brings music and movies to life, perfecting the illusion that the music or cinematic action is actually being performed live in your home! This ability to encourage your suspension of disbelief is the hallmark of a truly successful hidden loudspeaker.
Definitive Architectural Loudspeakers Feature:
State-of-the-Art Sonic Performance for Music and Home Theater — Build a stealth home theater system that will blow you away without taking up any shelf or floor space!
Easy-to-Install— One hole, no mess. Precision templates are included. Exclusive Locking Arm Mounting System grabs your wall with high tension clamps at the turn of a screw, stiffening the baffle and eliminating resonance! (Rough-In Kits for new construction are available, too.) Easy to paint so they virtually disappear into your room, and moisture-resistant for kitchen and even bathroom installations!
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeters— Exclusive, Definitive-developed Magnetic Fluid-Cooled Moving-Coil Tweeter Dome of Pure Aluminum synergistically brings together the performance advantages of metal domes (greater clarity) and soft domes (smoother sound and better dampening) in one state-of-the-art tweeter design, for detail, clarity and accurate imaging.
High-Definition Cast-Basket Bass/Midrange Drivers— For significant performance advantages in the areas of bass reproduction, lifelike midrange clarity and dynamic range. (All models except UIW 63/A and UIW 83/A.) Aerodynamically designed, magnetically inert, non-resonant cast baskets minimize reflections of the sound radiating from the back of the cones and preserve structural and magnetic integrity.
Rigid Non-Resonant Glass-Filled Low Profile Frames— Maintain sonic purity by defeating diffraction, giving Definitive Architectural Loudspeakers a wide, dynamic sound stage with minimized resonance or coloration. Molded of a glass-filled polymer compound to eliminate baffle resonance.
Definitive Technology Architectural Loudspeakers come in a wide array of round, rectangular, bipolar, dual-channel and all-weather styles to suit any installation need. They are all engineered to achieve the same level of superior sonic performance as our flagship floor-standing speakers, utilizing the same state-of-the-art components and technologies developed for our top-of-the-line speakers. So you can mix-and-match these in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers in systems with other Definitive Technology Loudspeakers.
Definitive Architectural Reference Series In-Wall & In-Ceiling Loudspeakers
Definitive UIW Reference Architectural Speakers are perfect for bringing spectacular-sounding, high-performance invisible home theater systems into every room in your house.
Build a serious stealth home theater system by matching any combination of our Reference Series in-wall speakers, such as the in-ceiling UIW RCS II, UIW RCS III (available June 2008), UIW RSS II, UIW RLS II, UIW RLS III (available April 2008) or UIW RLS III, across the front stage as left, center and right channel speakers. This sleek system will deliver excellent bass without a separate subwoofer. But we would be remiss if we failed to encourage you to add an IWSub In-Wall Subwoofer (IWSub Reference, IWSub 10/10 and SubAmp 600) System, or even a couple SuperCube Subwoofers for even more dynamic bass performance!
Because they use voice-matched components, any combination of UIWs will work well together and deliver superior performance. Pick the ones that best suit your budget as well as your specific size, design and listening requirements. In addition to the UIW Reference Series, Definitive offers a variety of Architectural Series speakers that range from bipolars, in-ceilings and in-wall speakers, to in-wall sub systems, and even all-weather models.
