What else to know about the SCMS?

The SCMS features essentially the same driver complement as the 805S. It’s a 2-way system with a Kevlar® cone bass / midrange driver and aluminium dome tweeter. Here, though, the cabinet is much shallower so that it can be mounted on-wall with the minimum of intrusion into the living space. The system is also balanced for its intended on-wall application, taking into account the bass reinforcement from the rear wall. The system comes complete with a custom wall bracket that allows angular adjustment in both horizontal and vertical planes. This allows the speaker to be angled towards the listeners or, if preferred for a more diffuse surround sound field, away from the listening area. The SCMS is ideal for use as a stereo front speaker or as a rear surround. To give a more discreet aspect when the speaker is mounted high on the wall for surround applications, the tube-loaded tweeter has been brought into the main cabinet, rather than being mounted on top.
