Definitive Technology UIW RCS II Reference In-Ceiling Loudspeaker is perfect for bringing spectacular-sounding, high-performance "invisible" home theater systems into every room in your house.The Reference Ceiling Speaker II (RCS II) is intended for use as an in-ceiling front main left, center or right channel speaker in custom installed home theater systems of the highest quality. In addition, it can be used as a superb left or right speaker in a high quality stereo music system.
The RCS II features a non-resonant sealed medite (a dense wood product) enclosure to deliver the tight, detailed bass and uncolored midrange of audiophile free-standing speakers in every installation. The performance of open back built-in speakers will vary depending on the nature of the wall/ceiling cavity behind the speaker. But Definitive Reference speakers with integrated enclosures sound superb every time. Six rotating dogleg clamps and beefy wood screws make the RCS II easy to install in either new or existing construction and provide secure, non-resonant mounting for ultimate audiophile performance free of vibrations and buzzes.
The RCS II features a D'Appolito driver array angled down and aimed at the listening area (two 5-1/4" cast-basket bass/midrange drivers and a 1" pure aluminum tweeter) as well as two 6-1/2" pressure-coupled planar low bass radiators. Proprietary Wave Launch (patent pending) baffle geometry and acoustic treatment materials serve to create the illusion that the speakers are directly in front of the listener rather than up in the ceiling. The precisely configured dual angled baffles incorporate a uniquely effective acoustic treatment which combines a computer-optimized ribbed surface with special dampening panels in order to achieve a linear uncolored sound combined with boxless three-dimensional imaging in which acoustic events seem to effortlessly float in space. In fact, the overall sonic performance of the RCS II is truly remarkable, combining breath-taking dynamics, engrossing musical subtlety and amazingly spacious imaging that totally belies its in-ceiling configuration.
