Shipping & Returns

Thank you for considering Yorkshire AV for your next investment in your AV or HiFi setup.

We are an approved retailer for all brands sold on our website, which means full manufacturers warranty and support as well as detailed product knowledge within our small business.

We use an inventory tracking system which states if item(s) are in stock and if not, what are the likely lead times.

Who do you use for delivery?

Our primary delivery agent is DPD. Where orders are shipped directly from Yorkshire AV, we always use DPD who offer a fabulous service at competitive rates.

If we drop ship (i.e. direct from the supplier) then the delivery agent is out of our control. It is generally DPD or UPS however - we rarely see other carriers used.

Selecting "Next Day" delivery does not mean you'll receive your item the next day in some cases. It's the next day from when the item(s) are in stock with us. If there is an urgent need then please contact a member of staff via the Live Chat or telephone (01757 826111) to check on live stock levels.

Certain product(s) are delayed in manufacturing due to semi-conductor shortages across the Globe. We'll keep you informed as to your order progress and a likely ETA once we get updates from the manufacturers.

  • Orders placed over a weekend and are in stock will be dispatched on Monday.

Orders for items not in stock

Given the vast amount of variations of each product (e.g. AudioQuest cables) or Pro-Ject Audio Turntables - we keep the most common options in stock (i.e. gloss black finish, or 1.5m RCA cables) whereas longer cables or cables with terminations that are less frequently ordered will be ordered as required.

Generally speaking - we receive orders within 2-3 days for UK suppliers and 3-4 days for European suppliers (i.e. AudioQuest, DALI).

We want you to be 100% satisfied which is why we'll give you an email/call if item(s) aren't in stock and give you the option of changing the order, cancelling or if you're happy to wait a few days, we'll get it out as soon as possible.

If an item states 'Available to Order' - this means the item is not in stock but we are able to order in. Lead times average 2 days but in some circumstances, delivery times may be longer and is outside of our control. Please contact us to get an estimate on delivery times if orders are urgent.

Product details

The Platinum In-Wall 3G is a three-way architectural In-Wall loudspeaker that features an MPD III tweeter, 4” RDT III midrange driver and twin 6" RDT III bass drivers. It can be used either horizontally or vertically anywhere within a high-performance home theatre or two-channel stereo system.

Platinum In-Wall 3G is Monitor Audio’s flagship high-performance, architectural, in-wall speaker. It is designed for use in high-end audio and movie systems, where accurate, clear and lifelike sound is required. With the minimum of room intrusion but with maximum scale and sonic impact.

Platinum In-Wall 3G can be installed either vertically or horizontally, which means it can be used on any channel within a system and is ideal for LCR applications and for seamless tonal accuracy within a theatre system.

Key Features

  • 1 x MPD III high-frequency transducer for a larger, clearer, and more lifelike sound
  • 1 x 4” RDT III mid-bass driver for incredible levels of clarity and scale
  • 2 x 6” RDT III bass drivers for exceptional weight and depth
  • Patented 'DCF' (Dynamic Coupling Filter) mechanism for more natural sound
  • Bespoke speaker terminals and footings
  • Underhung, edge-wound voice coils: greater driver efficiency and lifelike dynamics, less distortion
  • Rigid cabinet construction made from 25 mm MDF with steel back
  • Extensive internal bracing using thick MDF cross bracing techniques

Acoustic Innovation

Re-defining what is achievable for high-end home audio, the three-way PL-IW 3G features the new 3rd generation Micro Pleated Diaphragm (MPD III) high-frequency transducer. Developed by Monitor Audio’s acoustic engineers when creating the company’s ground-breaking ‘Concept 50’ prototype, this breathtakingly accurate tweeter was unveiled earlier this year as part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations.

The MPD III introduces innovative technology that reduces distortion and flattens the frequency response, while the optimised waveguide provides highly controlled directivity, improving both soundstage and sensitivity. This all leads to a larger, clearer, and more consistent sound, allowing the PL-IW 3G to create the ultimate immersive experience: music and film are delivered with incredible precision and clarity, introducing the listener to levels of accuracy and detail that they won’t have noticed before.

PL-IW 3G is housed within a reinforced and internally braced 25mm MDF and steel box construction and is equipped with an adjustable mid/high-frequency driver array, similar to that deployed in the THX Ultra certified Cinergy Theatre series. This approach allows the PL-IW 3G to be positioned either vertically or horizontally, ideal for LCR applications and for seamless tonal accuracy within a theatre system.

In addition to the MPD III high frequency transducer, other new acoustic features include:

  • The RDT III cone is employed on all Platinum Series 3G midrange and bass drivers. An extremely strong cone, it is constructed from three distinct layers. A Nomex honeycombed core is sandwiched between an ultra-thin and ultra-rigid C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium) layer and a twin-layer of uni-directional Carbon Fibre, which are layered and bonded at 90 degrees to each other for even greater strength. Super light, yet super strong, the RDT III cone works like a perfect piston, and when coupled to the latest optimised and contoured cone surround and black spider it allows the PL-IW 3G mid and bass drivers to boast the lowest distortion of any speaker in Monitor Audio’s history.
  • The bass drivers feature large-diameter edge-wound underhung voice-coils, creating exceptional power-handling. These new voice-coils allow higher and more linear excursion of the driver, resulting in wider dynamic range with greater control, resulting in impressive levels of tight, deep, impactful bass.
  • A patented 'DCF' (Dynamic Coupling Filter) helps to dampen surplus high-frequency energy produced by the driver. It is also perforated to encourage voice coil cooling and release air pressure from behind the cone for maximum driver efficiency – this means the drivers create a more natural and lifelike sound.
