On restaurant walls. On patio walls, warehouse walls, in retail stores and many other applications.

Dust and water-resistant, AWs are ideal for BGM use in bar/restaurants (including patios), paging and BGM for retail stores, distributed audio in HoW, schools, sports/health clubs and public spaces.

They deliver robust bass, crisp treble and accurate midrange that makes them easily heard over table conversation, traffic or wind noise. Impressive on their own, their sound can be further enhanced with Ashly power amplifiers and processors that incorporate Protēa or AquaControl™ software.

Protēa and AquaControl™ software includes DSP files designed to optimize speaker performance by providing a wider, flatter frequency response across the coverage angle. While the IS & AW speakers provide ample performance on their own, DSP is recommended in order to realize the best possible sound without needing to manually adjust for any speaker anomalies that might otherwise produce less than optimal results.

There are three levels of DSP processing available for AW wall-mount speakers.

Level 1: applies the most advanced and precise DSP to Ashly speakers. Level 1 currently works with most Protea-enabled products and includes multi-band PEQ, Universal X-Over filters, HPF/LPF, FIR filters and Delay (when used with the SP-12.1P subwoofer). This DSP level applies to the following Ashly Protea-equipped amplifier and DSP processors: nXp, nep, pema & ne matrix processors (ne4400, 4800, etc…). Level 1 Speaker files will also be available to work for AquaControl-enabled models, such as the mXa-1502. These will provide similar processing to that found in Protea-based models.

Level 2: This level is designed to work exclusively for the ne24.24m matrix processor. It encompasses many of the same features as Level 1, except for FIR filters and Universal Crossover , though it will provide basic Crossover function.

Level 3: This Level is exclusively for the 3.6 & 4.8SP Speaker System Processors and include more basic PEQ, HPF/LPF functions and Delay. No FIRs or Universal X-Over.

AW’s range four sizes — from micro to 8-inch — and sleek ovoid shape let them fit unobtrusively into any hospitality decor.

The AW Series is available in four model sizes: AW2.1P 2.5” 8 Ω IP52 rated. AW 3.2P 3” 2-way 8 Ω, IP-52 rated. AW 5.2T 5” 2-way w/transformer, IP54 rated. AW 8.2T 8” 2-way w/transformer, IP54 rated. For extended LF response, add the SP-12.1P 12” Sub for full-range applications like DJ or Live Music Performance.

All four models come with tilt-swivel brackets.

Two-way AW 5.2T and AW 8.2T are designed for either low-impedance or constant-voltage applications and incorporate Ashly’s proprietary Directivity-Optimized Crossover (DOC), giving them the widest, most consistent sweet spot.
