Designed for flush mounting in the walls, the Minorca In-Wall offers arguably the best possible performance of any custom installation speaker currently available at this price-point - as it performs more akin to a conventional bookshelf rather than an in-wall variant.
The key to this performance is the fact that like it's larger brother (the outstanding Altura) it benefits from being a '3 way speaker' giving it a huge advantages over other more conventional in-wall's. The heart of this is down to the fact that it is fitted with Cabasse's excellent co-axial midrange-tweeter BC10 and their new Duocell based 17cm woofer. This means that the Minorca IW is the first three-way in-wall speaker that combines all the sound qualities of the Cabasse SCS (Spatially Coherent Source) technology seen elsewhere in the HiFi and Home Theatre free standing ranges.
The result of this high end design means the transparency and the realism of the soundstage the Minorca IW manages to deliver are simply striking, with a unique stability and a depth that erases the walls. Voicing is natural and smooth, and musical depth and detail can be found in abundance despite their apparent limitation of installation. As the Minorca IW's utilise Cabasse's co-axial design approach it also means that these are the ideal custom installation speaker in that they are very forgiving in relation to placement.
This unique Cabasse design feature enables a greater 'image' or an enhanced sweet-spot, which means that they really can fill spaces with the most rich and luxurious sound-stage. So if you are looking for a truly immersive audio experience within any custom installation project - be sure to specify and install the Minorca in-wall's, you won't be dissapointed.
For walls in which the Minorca IW are installed they almost disappear as well, thanks to its ultra thin grill with magnetic link fastening, enabling the sleekest of installations and the best possible sound. For those of you wanting the most exacting standards of audio reproduction - the Minorca can also be fitted in a dedicated in-wall enclosure (available seperately).
