Invisible Surround Sound
In-Ceiling 360-Degree Sound

Featuring two aluminium dome tweeters, a pair of 3.5” cast-basket drivers and two 3.5” pressure-coupled Low Bass Radiators, the UIW RSS III produces a uniquely immersive experience that completely envelops listeners in an expansive, 360-degree soundstage.

Bipolar Technology for a theatre-like presentation

Employing Definitive Technology’s fabled Bipolar driver architecture, UIW RSS Bipolar in-wall/ in-ceiling loudspeakers fill the room with a perfect combination of direct and reflected sound for stunning surround effects.

Flagship Definitive Technology Drivers for reference loudspeaker performance

Ultimate In-Wall Reference Series loudspeakers are designed with the same driver technologies as our flagship floorstanding speakers to deliver an ultra-realistic theatre experience.

Dual 1” Pure Aluminum Tweeters

The RSSIII aluminium dome tweeters deliver a clear, precise high frequency response. Their ultralight, rigid construction enables them to play significantly higher frequencies than we can hear, providing effortless, distortion-free highs within and beyond the audible range.

Dynamic Midrange/Woofers

Most in-wall speakers lack the larger driver area of floorstanding speakers. The RSSIII’s 3.5” midrange/woofer drivers match butyl rubber surrounds with rigid polypropylene cones in cast baskets to provide a much greater cone excursion than other comparably-sized drivers. The result is superior midrange and midbass performance, wrapped in a compact, stealthy package.

Passive Bass Radiators

Each RSS III includes twin 3.5” passive radiators. Passive radiators create more bass than comparably sized sealed or ported designs. The extra surface area moves more air, resulting in more dynamic midbass that works beautifully on its own or mates seamlessly with subwoofers at a variety of crossover points.

Installation Flexibility
Surround Sound Cinema Anywhere

Whether new or existing construction, walls or ceilings, residential or commercial, UIW Reference Series loudspeakers feature simple, secure installations. From metal pivoting lock arms to paintable grilles and frames to fully sealed enclosures, Definitive Technology engineers designed speakers that put installation simplicity on equal footing with sound quality.

Rotating Arrays for optimal directivity

When RSS III Bipolar speakers are installed in the ceiling, the driver arrays can be rotated 90° to optimize performance for your listening area.

Fully Enclosed for powerful sound where you want it

UIW Reference Series loudspeakers are fully enclosed and sealed with dense, acoustically inert, anti-resonant, anti-vibration Medite® wood. With the RSSIII, you’ll hear loud, accurate, uncoloured midrange and tight, powerful bass with no buzzing or sound leakage into walls and ceilings.

Ultimate In-Wall Reference Series - Built-In Reference-Quality Cinema Sound

Featuring the same legendary driver technology as our finest floorstanding speakers, Ultimate In-Wall Reference Series loudspeakers are built to thrill the most demanding home theatre and home audio lovers — invisibly.

UIW Reference Series loudspeakers deliver uncompromising sound from a high-technology flush-mount enclosure that disappears into the environment. They provide thrilling sound with room-filling bass, stunning detail, and theatre-reference volume levels that rival the best freestanding speakers without any of the clutter.
