Monitor Audio CP-CT260

Crutchfield customer from New York, NY on 4/24/2020

Great sound out of a relatively compact speaker. I installed two of these Monitor Audio CP-CT260 speakers in part of my refinished basement. The speakers disappear once installed which is a plus. This was my first experience with in-ceiling speakers and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of sound. I am not an audiophile so I cannot comment on the specs of the speakers, but I do know when something sounds good. These speakers sound good.

Pros: Great room filling sound. Unobtrusive.

Cons:

Great sound!

Great sound and very easy to install. The blown in insulatio issue wwih most in-ceiling installations will never be a problem with these.

Pros: Easy install, sealed backbox, great sound

Cons: None

Great sounding in-ceiling Speakers!

Awesome speakers! I'm using 4 of these for my in-ceiling Atmos speakers and they sound great! I'm using 7 super awesome Next Level Acoustics in-walls and the Monitor Audio CP-CT260s match well and hold their own!

Pros: Great sound Built in enclosures

Cons: None

Clear rich sound

I got the CP-CT260 for a large room and the CP-CT150 for a smaller room. Both produce room filling non directional expansive very enjoyable music, however there is a noticeable difference in the richness of the CP-CT260 vs the smaller CP-CT150. If I was going to do it over I would just go for all CP-CT260. Installation is easy because they are a complete package ready to pop into the ceiling. However the self tapping toggle clamps are impossible to get stated while holding the speaker over your head on the ceiling. Tap them first on a secure surface so you can get some leverage on the screwdriver. Invest in a quality Phillips to avoid slipping and damaging the speaker.

Pros: Room filling expansive sound stage, complete package easy to install, very clear rich sound

Cons: Toggle fasteners difficult to tap while holding the speaker up on the ceiling.

Monitor Audio CP-CT260

Crutchfield customer from Waterford, WI on 7/10/2017

I'm using 4 of these speakers in my basement bar area along with a Definitive Technology ProSub 1000 and Denon Denon AVR-X1300W. The sound is amazing. I was very surprised that the sound rivaled that of my SpeakerCraft Aim Wide 5's I have installed in a different home, and the Monitor Audio's are WAY less expensive. One nice feature is that the enclosure is already on the speaker so you don't have to build anything into the ceiling. I can drive the volume to very high levels without getting any distortion or losing sound quality. With the ProSub you don't need anything better than the CT260's so don't waste your money for larger woofers. They sound nice with music and movies and overall I'm very impressed and would buy again.
