FPM5

With a height to match 50-inch TV screens, the FPM5 is a 2½-way system featuring a pair of Kevlar® cone bass/midrange drivers, either side of a Nautilus™ tube-loaded tweeter. The 2½-way configuration, where one of the drivers is rolled off above 180Hz, ensures better horizontal dispersion when the speaker is used as a centre channel, enabling you to hear that all-important dialogue wherever you sit.

If sinking your plasma screen into the wall, do the same with any of the FPM models to leave just the frame protruding. It's simply a choice between discreet and ultra discreet.
