Make movies and music come alive with high-performance speakers from Artison. This pair of speakers installs in your wall, so you won't have to dedicate any floor space to big speakers but they still deliver incredibly engaging, detailed sound from all your favorite sources. The stylish white aluminum grilles can be painted to blend in with almost any décor.
Innovative technology produces front and center channel sound
Artison's in-wall Masterpiece speakers give you an engrossing front soundstage from two speakers instead of three, thanks to DualMono® technology. There's no need for a separate center channel speaker, saving the work of installing another speaker in your wall and cutting through a stud.
The upper drivers of each speaker handle center channel sound, anchoring dialogue at the middle of your screen. The lower drivers reproduce left and right channel sound. Complete your in-wall home theater speaker system with Artison's in-wall surround speakers and an in-wall sub.
High-quality speaker materials for superior sound
Each Masterpiece speaker boasts two ultra-fast tweeters and two super-strong Kevlar woofers. The tweeters are adjustable, so you can aim them to optimize imaging in your favorite listening spot. Kevlar is a strong, lightweight material, making it ideal for speaker construction. The woofer cones feature a trumpet-like curvature which improves sound dispersion throughout your listening area.

Average Customer Review:
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Unbelievable..... These are the most impressive speakers I have ever heard. They are paired to a Denon 4311CI receiver and matched with the Artison LRS surrounds and RCC 600 subwoofer. If your looking for the pinnacle of performance you can't get any better. Would highly recommend this setup.

Overview: The Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCR is a 3-channel (Left, Center, and Right) passive LCR in-wall loudspeaker speaker system which delivers the left, center, and right audio information of your AV surround sound system from two speakers designed to mount inside the wall on either side of your television. The Artison In-Wall LCRs are designed to complement any flat panel display and eliminate the need for a separate center-channel speaker either above or below the display. This is possible through DualMono Center channel technology which integrates two discrete speakers on either side of a flat-panel display, both of which reproduce the monaural center-channel signal. The dual speaker approach places the apparent source of the sound in the center of the picture where it belongs and eliminates the need for a third speaker (center-channel) which usually sits above or below the TV. The DualMono Center Channel provides an easy installation of just two in-wall speaker cabinets which are more aesthetically appealing and yet still deliver the three discrete front channels for your home theater surround sound.
In-Wall Mount Design: Unlike other in in-wall speakers, the Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCRs are a complete speaker cabinet mounted inside an in-wall mount. The In-Wall LCRs have a closed-back design which ensures that the performance of the speaker is maintained, independent of the wall cavity size or wall construction type. It does not rely on the cavity created behind the baffle to control the performance of the system. The sound is consistent and fully independent of the environment.
DualMono Center Channel: The Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCRs feature a unique, patented DualMono Center Channel which improves the reproduction of a movie soundtrack. Two dedicated speakers located in the upper half of the left and right channel enclosures work together to project crisp, clear dialogue from the center of the screen, where it belongs. The Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCRs left and right channels provide the wide, accurate sound stage you want from a home theater speaker system.
Drivers: Each Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCR features two 5.25" long-throw Kevlar midrange drivers and two 1" adjustable Super Audio silk-dome tweeters for exceptional dynamics, fast transient response, and ruler-flat frequency response.
Adjustable Tweeters: The Masterpiece In-Wall LCR is equipped with adjustable front-firing tweeters. Using the angle built into the woofers as a reference, you can fine tune the LCRs to fit your application. The DualMono Center Channel tweeters should be focused to the center of your listening area. Conversely, the left and right channel tweeters should be aimed to the left and right side of your listening area.
Enclosure: The Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCR features an aluminum cabinets and off-white plastic grilles, which are paintable (paint shields supplied). The LCR In-Walls utilize a bass-reflex enclosure design with two front-firing ports for added bass response and efficiency.
Presence Control Settings: The Presence Control changes the DualMono Center Channel tweeter level, from 6 kHz and up, to compensate for differing room acoustics. You can set this switch to Normal (0 db/oct), Decreased (-3 dB/oct), or Increased (+3 dB/oct).
Note: Presence Controls switches on both speakers should be set to the same positions for proper balance of the center image.
Speaker Connections: Each Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCR will require two discrete audio signals from an external multi-channel amplifier. Each features two pair of gold-plated spring-post terminals (Front Right or Left, and Center). For the Left and Right channels, connect one end of your two-conductor speaker wire to the left and right channel positive and negative terminals of the receiver or amplifier; and connect the other end of the speaker wire to the lower set of positive and negative terminals located on the rear of each speaker. The DualMono Center Channels should be wired in a parallel connection to the amplifier/receiver's center channel; this can be achieved with two separate speaker wires run from the amplifier/receiver, one to each DualMono Center Channel. The speaker wire gauge required depends on the length; 16 Gauge is suggested as the minimum size.
Mounting: The Artison Masterpiece In-Wall LCR features an integrated mounting bracket and is designed to be compatible with standard 2" x 4" stud walls. The Masterpiece In-Wall LCR features a 3-3/4" mounting depth and cut-out dimensions of 5.875" wide x 30.3125" tall. The in-wall speakers come supplied with mounting templates to help you determine the proper location and size of the cut-out needed in your wall.
