LSA On-Wall Monitor Standard
LSA is very proud to introduce what may be the most innovative, flexible and best-sounding on-wall speaker currently available – the LSA1OW.
Home theater mavens and audiophiles have long debated the advantages of three main types of surround speaker: directional, bipole and dipole. Which of these approaches did we take?
The answer is… tripole...
The LSA1OW’s trapezoidal shape allows us to put three silk dome tweeters - the same used in our award-winning LSA1 monitors – in an array across the three front surfaces. Two switches on the front panel allow you to customize the sound to suit your needs.
Select ‘Front’ to use the front, center tweeter and to turn the two side tweeters off. In this way, the LSA1OW operates as a very well-balanced 2-way speaker – perfect for normal music listening.
Select ‘Side’ to turn the front, center tweeter off and turn the side tweeters on for wider dispersion – an excellent choice for home theater.
At this point you can select ‘Bipole’, which keeps the two side tweeters in phase, or ‘Dipole’ which puts them out of phase – both are popular choices with highly diffused sound.
The LSA1OW shares the same mid-bass driver as the LSA1 monitors, so voices and instruments come across dynamically, and with a very natural tonality. You can expect the same level of build quality and gorgeous finish that is consistent with the speakers that have come before it.
Use two or four of them as surround speakers in your home theater. Use a pair of them in ‘Front’ mode on your front wall, flanking your flat screen TV. Also, its shallow footprint will allow you to place the LSA1OW on narrow shelves where other monitors cannot go.
LSA has taken the guess work out of selecting an on-wall speaker, and we’ve done so with both visual and aural beauty.
Now you only need to decide where to use it.
