Two-Way Speaker Design: The Monitor Audio Controlled
Performance series CP-CT150 in-ceiling speaker features a two-way driver design
with a 1" C-CAM gold dome pivoting tweeter and a 4" MMP II midrange/midbass
- C-CAM Gold-Dome Tweeter: The gold dome tweeter is
formed from a ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium alloy, gold anodized to a
specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new
profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modeling
tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The
new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a
linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency
bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats. The gold dome is
thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made
from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.
- MMP II Midrange/Midbass Woofer: The Metal Matrix
Polymer (MMP II) driver cone has a polypropylene base loaded with metallic
particles to offer a rigid and responsive structure. They are manufactured
using a sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone
thickness at critical points to optimise stiffness and consistency,
resulting in a superior sonic performance.
Tweeter Control: The 1" C-CAM tweeter is able to pivot
(+/-15°) to direct the sound to your desired
listening area. A tweeter level adjustment (+3/0/-3 dB) also aids in high
Sealed Design: The Monitor Audio CP-CT150's airtight enclosure design
protects each precision-engineered driver system against the accumulation of
damaging dirt and dust.
Trimless Grille: The CP-CT150 in-ceiling speaker features a
"Trimless" steel-mesh grille that is held in place by high strength Neodymium
magnets covering the entire speaker for a true trimless, stealth look. The
grille is paintable to blend with the living environment; additional scrim
material is provided for trouble free painting.
Tri-Grip Fixing System: Monitor Audio's innovative Tri-Grip
fixing system is easier to install than conventional clamping schemes but
provides three times the surface area and a better surface seal, maximizing bass
response and midrange clarity. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough
re-enforced polymer, giving a secure installation.
Note: This Controlled Performance series loudspeaker can only be
fixed into drywall and suspended ceilings with a thickness of up to 1.75".
Spring-Post Terminals: The Monitor Audio CP-CT150 is fitted
with two spring-post terminals to connect your speaker wire. The spring-post
terminals which accept bare wire (up to 10AWG) and angled pin-connectors.
