Two-Way Speaker Design: The Monitor Audio Custom Install
series CWT 160 (Square) in-ceiling speaker features a two-way driver design with
a 1" C-CAM gold dome pivoting tweeter and a 6" MMP II midrange/midbass woofer.
- 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 surSquare 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.
Trimless Grille: The CWT 160 (Square) 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 Custom Install series loudspeaker can only be
fixed into drywall with a thickness of up to 1.75".
Spring-Post Terminals: The Monitor Audio CWT 160 (Square) 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
Protective Covers: The CWT 160 (Square) features dust
protection covers that are designed to prevent the ingress of dirt or dust into
the driver and crossover.
Moisture & Fire Resistant: The Custom Install series
in-ceiling speaker is splash and humidity proof for installation in shower rooms
or pool areas. It also uses fire retardant materials specified to UL-94 VO
