Review (October 2006) - M&S Systems
By Kevin Nakano
Choosing the right in-wall speaker can be difficult when trying to balance price and performance. While virtually all of the current in-wall models offer aesthetically pleasing looks, few sound as good as the conventional boxed designs that often intrude into our living space. M&S Systems, a division of Linear LLC, offers an impressive line of quality in-wall and ceiling speakers called WaveGuide. These speakers have a unique horn-shaped baffle that efficiently disperses the sound into the room. The asymmetric tweeter pivots to optimize sound and extend the high-frequency response. Using a pair of 3-position (±3 dB) level switches on the baffle, both high and low frequecies are adjustable for optimal bass and treble response. Kevlar woofer cones with butyl rubber surrounds offer smooth frequency response, low distortion and longevity. The speakers include an acoustic seal while mounting the frame to the wall, while rubber bumpers on mounting tabs help reduce vibration. A full 10-year warranty is included with the WaveGuide series speakers.
The M&S Systems WG150W in-wall speakers are easy to install and offer excellent performance and are reasonable priced. The build quality and ease of installation make this speaker a must for those customers requiring a level of performance above average in-wall speakers. We have had these installed in our living room for some time now and the audio quality has never lets us down. The 10-year warranty provides confidence that the speakers are designed to last. While some will never go to in-walls for pure audio performance, it's nice to know that there are quality speakers that can be used throughout the house, while keeping within a reasonable budget.
