LCR Design: The Monitor Audio CP-WT240-LCR is a multi-purpose in-wall
speaker that can be used as a center speaker, front left or right speaker, and
surround left or right speaker. Its suitable for music and home theater
applications, and can be mounted in a portrait or landscape orientation.
Two-Way Speaker Design: The Monitor Audio Custom Install
series CP-WT240-LCR in-ceiling speaker features a two-way driver design with
a 1" C-CAM gold dome pivoting tweeter and two 4" C-CAM midrange/midbass
woofers. The two 4" woofers offer greater radiating area working in tandem than a single 6" bass driver.
- 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.
- C-CAM Cone Woofers: Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium
is a material originally developed by the aerospace industry for jet engine
components. Its properties are ideal for loudspeaker cones being extremely
rigid, yet light enough to yield high overall efficiency. In manufacture,
aluminum/magnesium alloy undergoes a three-stage stress-relieving process to
remove surface deformation and molecular weakness. Once formed, the alloy
cone is subjected to a high temperature anodic coating process in which a
layer of pure ceramic alumina is depleted onto its surfaces to a depth of 50
microns, producing a completely rigid sandwich of alloy and heat-dissipating
ceramic material. Conventional cones are liable to flex or twist in
operation, producing a significant level of audible distortion. C-CAM cones
have a much higher resistance to bending stress and therefore exhibit much
greater fidelity over their entire operating range.
Tweeter & Boundary 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) and boundary
compensation control (On/Off) also aids in high frequency performance and
Sealed Design: The Monitor Audio CP-WT240-LCR's airtight
enclosure design protects each precision-engineered driver system against the
accumulation of damaging dirt and dust.
Trimless Grille: The CP-WT240-LCR in-ceiling speaker
features a round "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 Custom Install series loudspeaker can only be
fixed into drywall with a thickness of up to 1.75".
Spring-Post Terminals: The Monitor Audio CP-WT240-LCR 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.
