We designed our AW Series to match or exceed the performance of more expensive on-wall speakers…yet at a price point that can contribute to a winning bid — and a satisfied customer. Here’s how.For this type of speaker, music and speech are equally important. Both rely on a large “sweet spot” and off-axis intelligibility. Many speakers strive only for ON-axis frequency response and pay too little attention to OFF-axis system response.
Directivity Optimized Crossover, a new, proprietary approach to crossover design, significantly improves vertical axis response. More listeners on the extreme left and right can hear the spoken word better. Music in a restaurant or bar is more immersive and less directional. DOC avoids the lock-step “studio monitor” configuration that is less than optimal for longer-throw applications and creates a wider sweet spot that is perfect for speech throughout a room, patio or bar area.
