One of the primary functions of a first-rate in-wall speaker is its ability to disperse superb high-end audio to every part of the room, no matter where the speaker itself is placed. The design team at Definitive Technology knows just how important this design element is, and the UIW 75 in-wall speaker was built to deliver a broad spectrum of sound to any room it is installed in.

This $399 speaker ($798 per pair) was designed with the discerning home theater enthusiast in mind, not only as an in-wall speaker that can be easily installed, but also as an LCR (Left, Center, Right) speaker that can replicate any movie's soundtrack, sound effects and dialogue sequences with aplomb. The UIW 75 uses two six-inch high-definition bass/midrange drivers in this speaker's design that drastically increases the overall low-end audio quality that most home theater purists love so much.
Additional Resources

The weight of the UIW 75 is about eight pounds, and this in-wall speaker features a one-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter for sending clear and clean high-end audio to the soundstage at all times. High-frequency equalization is made possible with the Linkwitz-Riley crossover network integrated into the speaker system's inner circuitry. This speaker's reported frequency response is 26 Hz- 30kHz and the non-resonant cast baskets that are an integral design element of the UIW 75 help substantially with sustaining more pure low-end audio once these speakers are powered up.

The speaker features one pair of five binding posts and comes with precision templates for extremely easy home installation purposes. This is a very modern-looking speaker and serves quite well as an in-wall speaker that will be primarily used in a home theater audio configuration since it can also be well hidden within most home theaters without much trouble at all.
