Additional information


The NEAR® VM2 all-environment, versatile-mount loudspeaker is elegantly designed, rugged to the extreme, and a snap to install. It employs a ball and socket “signature” mounting system combined with a pre-terminated totally waterproof “Perfect Fit” input connector. This mounting system minimizes installation effort and reduces “ladder time” to improve installation efficiency and safety. The VM2 utilizes a 5.25-inch MDT/MLS woofer with a 1-inch titanium-alloy inverted dome tweeter for perfectly life-like sound dispersed evenly over a wide area.
