VM2B | Outdoor Full-Range Loudspeaker

Sale price$243.70



The NEAR VM2 Outdoor Full-Range Loudspeaker has been purpose-built to reliably deliver exceptional sound quality while enduring virtually any weather conditions. A mix of elegance and function, the VM2 utilizes many of NEAR’s signature features and benefits, such as Metal Diaphragm Technology (MDT) woofers for consistent performance in any environment, Magnetic Liquid Suspension Technology (MLS) for near-perfect voice coil alignment and protection against corrosion, as well as titanium-alloy tweeters that deliver superior sound quality and durability.

The VM2 employs a Versatile-Mount (VM) ball-and-socket mounting system combined with a pre-terminated, totally waterproof, input connector. This mounting system minimizes installation effort and reduces “ladder time” to improve installation efficiency and safety.

The VM2 is available in both white and black and can be painted to match the surroundings. The color-matched grille is oxidation- resistant, heavy-gauge, powder-coated aluminum with rectangular perforations that inhibit water from clogging the holes and blocking high frequencies. A special hydrophobic fabric that permits sound waves to pass through unimpeded but blocks moisture, debris and wildlife covers the bass port.

Other NEAR hallmark technologies found in the VM2 include: proprietary rubber compound cone surrounds designed to withstand the rigors of all environments including UV, chlorine, fertilizer, and other chemicals; a plug-in connector that assures absolute weather tightness and maintains correct polarity every time, as well as a ribbed enclosure designed to break-up panel resonances for clearer, more detailed midrange sound.
