New From Monitor Audio… Platinum In-Wall 3G

Monitor Audio enhances its Platinum Series 3G Speaker
Offering with Powerful Architectural, Installed In-Wall Model

Monitor Audio is proud to announce the release of the PL-IW 3G, a Platinum Series 3G In-Wall loudspeaker. This high-performance flagship model is designed for high-end home theatre and two-channel stereo systems where accurate, clear and lifelike sound is required. It delivers maximum scale and sonic impact, but with minimum room intrusion. Plus, its versatile design means it can be used anywhere in a system, either as an LCR model at the front or as a highly effective surround or rear speaker.

The PL-IW 3G is a versatile, high-fidelity In-Wall loudspeaker that features the latest Platinum Series 3G acoustic innovations, including the MPD III High-Frequency Transducer. It delivers extraordinary performance levels to match the exceptional build and highly desirable design of the range’s freestanding models.

Acoustic Innovation
Redefining what is achievable for high-end home audio, the three-way PL-IW 3G features the latest 3rd generation Micro Pleated Diaphragm (MPD III) high-frequency transducer, which was developed by Monitor Audio’s acoustic engineers when creating the company’s ground-breaking statement ‘Hyphn‘ loudspeaker.

The MPD III introduces innovative technology that reduces distortion and flattens the frequency response, while the optimized waveguide provides highly controlled directivity, improving both soundstage and sensitivity. This all leads to a larger, clearer, and more consistent sound, allowing the PL-IW 3G to create the ultimate immersive experience: music and film are delivered with incredible precision and clarity, introducing the listener to levels of accuracy and detail that they won’t have noticed before.

The PL-IW 3G is housed within a reinforced and internally braced 1 inch (25 mm) MDF and steel box construction and is equipped with an adjustable mid/high-frequency driver array, similar to that deployed in the THX Ultra certified Cinergy Theatre series. This approach allows the PL-IW 3G to be positioned either vertically or horizontally, ideal for LCR applications and for seamless tonal accuracy within a theatre system.

Other PL-IW 3G Benefits
RDT III (Rigid Diaphragm Technology III)

The RDT III cone is employed on all Platinum Series 3G midrange and bass drivers. An extremely strong cone, it is constructed from three distinct layers. A Nomex honeycombed core is sandwiched between an ultra-thin and ultra-rigid C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum Magnesium) layer and a twin-layer of uni-directional Carbon Fibre, which are layered and bonded at 90 degrees to each other for even greater strength.

Super light, yet super strong, the RDT III cone works like a perfect piston, and when coupled to the latest optimized and contoured cone surround and black spider it allows the PL-IW 3G mid and bass drivers to boast the lowest distortion of any speaker in Monitor Audio’s history.

Underhung, Edge-wound Voice-coils
The bass drivers feature large-diameter edge-wound underhung voice-coils, creating exceptional power-handling. These new voice-coils allow higher and more linear excursion of the driver, resulting in wider dynamic range with greater control, resulting in impressive levels of tight, deep, impactful bass.

DCF (Dynamic Coupling Filter)
A patented DCF helps to dampen surplus high-frequency energy produced by the driver. It is also perforated to encourage voice coil cooling and release air pressure from behind the cone for maximum driver efficiency – this means the drivers create a more natural and lifelike sound.

Key Features

  • Driver configuration: Dual 6.5” bass drivers, single 4” mid-driver and MPD III Transducer housed within a rotation enclosure for LCR
  • 3rdgeneration MPD III high-frequency transducers reduce distortion, flatten frequency response and lead to wider, cleaner more consistent and lifelike sound.
  • RDT III cone produces piston-like control even with the most extreme performances, providing a more precise, lifelike tonal balance and lower distortion.
  • Underhung, edge-wound voice coils for greater driver efficiency, lifelike dynamics and less distortion.
  • Patented DCF (Dynamic Coupling Filter) mechanism for more natural
