In-Wall Speakers

RSL Speakers W25E Angled In-Wall/Ceiling Speakers are Perfect for Dolby Atmos

At just $199 each, the RSL W25E are making it super affordable to get an in-wall/ceiling Dolby Atmos home theater speaker system. Angled drivers provide installation flexibility.

One of the problems with traditional front-facing in-wall speakers is they project sound straight-out that is often off-axis from the listener; which can impact sound quality. For example, your center channel speaker could be mounted too low or too high, while your left/right speakers could be too far apart.

Getting in-wall speakers pointed at the listening area is generally ideal, but not often easy without a custom build-out. RSL Speakers is solving this problem by introducing a new in-wall/ceiling speaker that’s angled 15-degrees inside the housing so it can still mount flat just like a regular in-wall.

RSL Speaker Systems today has just started shipping its new W25E Reference In-Wall loudspeaker for $199 each. However, you would be wrong to confuse its low price with low quality.

Based out of Southern California, RSL only sell factory-direct and keep their costs low by manufacturing overseas.

The RSL W25E Reference in-wall speakers can be used as any speaker within a home theater speaker system. Use them wherever as left, center, right, surround, or even overhead as Dolby Atmos height speakers. However, RSL does also offer a dedicated in-ceiling speaker for $50 less called the C34E MKII. It’s angled as well for installation flexibility. Both RSL architectural models also feature the same tweeter and matching mesh grilles.
