MC Series: The Polk Audio MC Series in-wall/in-ceiling
loudspeakers offer great built-in sound for multi-room listening. The MC Series
features Dynamic Balance driver technology, an aimable tweeter, and polymer cone woofers, which ensures your
music always sounds crisp and clear. The MC Series also uses infinite baffle
tuning for excellent bass response, so you can install them in virtually any
kind of wall.
Dynamic Balance Technology: Laser imaging technology allows
Polk Audio engineers to see the entire vibrating surface of a driver and
tweeter; they can actually see the resonance develop on the speaker
cones-resonance that is the root cause of loudspeaker distortion. Being able to
see the resonance develop, they then determine the Dynamic Balance of high-tech
materials, geometry and construction that together effectively tune out the
offending resonance. Exclusive Dynamic Balance Composite Material Technology
delivers sound that is effortlessly clean and clear, even at lifelike volume
Woofer: The Polk Audio MC80 in-ceiling speaker features a
8.0" Dynamic Balance Polymer Composite Cone for smooth wide-range response with low distortion. The polymer composite cone
provides excellent damping and bass response while resisting deterioration. For
a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a rubber surround.
Tweeter: The MC80 in-ceiling speaker uses a
3/4" aimable silk dome tweeter with neodymium
magnet for clear, detailed highs and excellent imaging even for
off-axis listening positions. Aiming the tweeter toward your listening position
improves imaging and detail.
Infinite Baffle Tuning: Infinite Baffle Tuning uses
the virtual enclosure of in-wall/in-ceiling space for superior bass response.
Moisture-resistant: Durable, moisture-resistant materials
allow you to install the speakers in bathrooms, kitchens, saunas, even under the eaves of an enclosed porch. (The speaker is not recommended for exposed outdoor use.)
Timbre-matched: The MC Series speakers are timbre matched to
Polk Audio's freestanding speakers, such as the Polk Monitor, TSi, and
OWM series; just in case you need in-wall/in-ceiling surround speakers to match
your freestanding fronts.
Installation: The round shape and flush-design allow the
MC80 to mimic the look of a recessed lighting fixture. Each speaker requires a
cutout diameter of 9.375" and a depth of 4.0625" behind the drywall. Each speaker
frame has a 10.5" diameter. Once the holes are cut, each speaker is placed in
the opening and the Rotating Cams are tightened, allowing you to secure each
speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly. The cam extends 1.75" deep
from the mounting surface of the speaker and will accommodate up to 1.125" drywall
thickness. When the cams are rotated, each extends 0.875" beyond the 9.375"
cutout diameter. If you will not be mounting these speakers in drywall, make
sure the wall or ceiling material can safely support the weight of the speakers
before installation; each speaker weighs approximately 3.5 pounds.
Paintable: The grille and flange can be painted, allowing
these speakers to match any decor.
