Mount the W250-LCR horizontally as an in-wall center-channel speaker, or vertically as a left- or right-channel surround speaker.

Monitor Audio's secret sauce

This speaker's 1" dome tweeter is made from Monitor's high-tech ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy. This exceptionally stiff, lightweight material allows the driver to respond swiftly and precisely to the audio signal for greater accuracy.

The tweeter also gets an anodized coating of gold that ensures smooth, extended highs. It also pivots, so you can aim it toward your preferred listening spot for more direct sound. Solid, accurate mids and bass come courtesy of dual 5" woofers.

Adjust the sound for your room

The W250-LCR features a three-position tweeter output switch (-3db, 0, +3db), which lets you fine-tune the high frequencies to your room and taste in sound.

Product Research


LCR Design: The Monitor Audio W250-LCR is a multi-purpose in-wall speaker that can be used as a center speaker, front left or right speaker, and surround left or right speaker. Its suitable for music and home theater applications, and can be mounted in a portrait or landscape orientation.

Two-Way Driver Design: The Monitor Audio W250-LCR in-wall speaker utilizes a two-way driver design, featuring a 1" C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter and two proprietary 5" MMP II woofers. Engineered for excellent detail resolution and full-range sound, the W165 will deliver great sound for home theater and stereo applications.

  • 1" C-CAM Gold Dome Tweeter: The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy, gold anodized to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modeling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats. The gold dome is thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.
  • Dual 5" MMP II Cone Woofers: The 5" MMP II (Metal Matrix Polymer) cone woofer has a polypropylene base loaded with metallic particles to offer a rigid and responsive structure. It is manufactured using a sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone thickness at critical points to optimize stiffness and consistency, resulting in a superior sonic performance.

High Frequency Level Adjustment: The Monitor Audio W250-LCR provides a high frequency level adjustment for super-fine audio tuning (this adjustment is found on the front baffle behind the grille). With the HF settingon the "0" position, the speaker will give you a neutral sound with no additional adjustments made. Switching to the "+db" position will give the high frequencies a boost, giving you more clarity and presence in the treble. Switching to the "-db" will do the opposite and can be useful if you want more prominence in the bass frequencies.

Spring-Post Terminals: The Monitor Audio W250-LCR is outfitted with two gold-plated spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post terminals which accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana plugs (sing/dual), and angled pin-connectors.

"Trimless" Magnetic Grille: The W250-LCR in-wall speaker features a steel-mesh grille that is held in place by high strength Neodymium magnets covering the entire speaker for a true "trimless", stealth look. The grille is paintable to blend with the living environment; additional scrim material is provided for trouble free painting.

Tri-Grip Fixing System: Monitor Audio's innovative Tri-Grip fixing system is easier to install than conventional clamping schemes and provides 3x the surface area and a better surface seal, maximizing bass response and midrange clarity. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough re-enforced polymer, giving a secure installation.

Customer Q&A

1 question already asked

Can these speakers be installed ON a wall as opposed to within a wall cavity? I do not have a standard depth study cavity of the wall these would be installed on. Aesthetics are not an issue as these will be installed behind an acoustically transparent projector screen.

Hey Peter, thanks for the question. So if you wanted to try and install these on the wall, they would need to be mounted into some form of enclosure mounted on the wall as they are made to be secured into the wall itself. We do not carry anything like that and I was not really able to find a reference piece for it so you may be looking at a custom built enclosure for these. If you don't want to go through that then you could also consider some on-wall options like this from Monitor:
