Monitor Audio Controlled Performance (CP) Trimless Series

MSRP: $265.00 − $900.00

By adapting our world-famous driver technologies for the architectural speaker environment, we’ve ensured that the potency of the Monitor Audio CP in-wall/in-ceiling system is as breath-taking as it is from its cabinet counterparts. Complete with integrated fully-sealed back boxes, Monitor Audio’s latest “Controlled Performance” range offers installers the most direct route to discreet high performance audio in almost any acoustic environment. No fewer than ten new models across four performance levels provide a wide choice of in-wall and in-ceiling options for the creative designer. You’ll experience naturally fluid dynamics generated by precision-engineered coaxial configurations of MMP® or C-CAM® bass/mid drivers and our signature 25mm C-CAM dome tweeter. In each case the tweeter pivots to direct high frequencies for perfect imaging. To the range-topping models we’ve added the pivoting IDC® module, which houses both a midrange driver and tweeter to allow you to focus more frequencies toward the listening area. Fine-tune the sound for room acoustics with the high frequency control on each CP model and use the boundary controls on the higher performance models to remove any chance of bass boom. With the breadth of choice available from CP, you’ll have all the control you need to design stunningly involving, immersive audio for music and home cinema more easily and discreetly than ever before. And because of the enclosed nature of CP design, you’ll enjoy a superior level of sound isolation between rooms and floors as well.



Features

The challenge of achieving the wide, detailed, dynamic sound of box speakers — in a room without boxes — is made so much easier with Monitor Audio’s new “Controlled Performance” range. Unlike open-backed designs whose success is subject to the properties of the wall cavity behind, the new CPs, which are fitted with fully-sealed back-boxes, will deliver the full potential of Monitor Audio’s award-winning speaker engineering. This means that in typical stud-wall and ceiling structures, installers and their clients are guaranteed excellent audio quality and versatility, as well as a superior level of sound isolation between rooms and floors. Not only can audio be controlled for optimum results, New trimless bezels and super-discreet, paintable magnetic grilles allow the latest CP range to blend almost invisibly with walls and ceilings for a near seamless integration with décor. Once easily and securely installed via Monitor Audio’s patented tri-grip mounting, high reliability is assured by CP’s airtight enclosure design, which protects each precision engineered driver system against the damaging ingress of dust and dirt. You’ll enjoy the performance of a genuine Monitor Audio cabinet speaker, and the super-discreet qualities of near-invisible installation combined.

Benefits

Monitor Audio's CP range is fitted with fully-sealed back-boxes. Optimised for in-wall/in-ceiling locations, controlled performance speakers ensure consistently predictable sound in any environment, and eliminate sound transfer between rooms. A “stealthy” super-narrow bezel and paintable grille ensure a near-invisible blend with décor. The grilles attach magnetically to the speaker frame, allowing removal and re-fixing in seconds. Every model has a pivoting C-CAM® tweeter. Advanced software simulation has allowed us to optimise our C-CAM tweeter design, bringing higher sensitivity and a wider bandwidth to reveal the finest high frequency detail up to 25kHz at entry-level and 30kHz in the flagship CP models. The CP tweeter is able to pivot through 15 degrees in all directions for optimum imaging. Higher quality CP models feature RST® Bass Drivers. The advanced RST C-CAM cone surface is patterned with radial ridges, which reduce mass, increase stiffness and eliminate the bending associated with conventional metal cone designs. The result is a smoother, more agile response, better control of break-up and a wider dynamic range. Every CP model features the Tri-Grip® Mounting System, which has three clamping points per dog-leg providing three times the surface area and a better surface seal maximising bass response and mid-range clarity.

Company Info

Monitor Audio is a British-owned designer and manufacturer of excellent quality, award-winning loudspeakers. With 15 categories of loudspeakers, including traditional box speakers, Airstream wireless speaker systems, and custom installation speakers for ultra discreet high quality sound around the home and outside, Monitor Audio continue the tradition they started in 1972 of combining style, high performance and value into everything they do.

Whatever your taste and budget you’ll discover a Monitor Audio speaker that answers your desire for great sound. We want you to share and enjoy the blend of style, quality, performance and sophistication that makes Monitor Audio unique.

Monitor Audio has become the world’s foremost expert in developing metal dome drivers. The Ceramic-Coated Aluminium Magnesium (C-CAM®) metal alloy driver cones used throughout our comprehensive range are very light, but very rigid and strong. Such a magical mix of properties allows them to reproduce the most delicate musical atmospherics as well as the dynamic bass excursions of movie action scenes or an explosive kick drum barrage. Our proprietary C-CAM® drivers can be much smaller than conventional designs and yet operate way beyond the limits of human audibility without distortion. This means that we can design slimmer, more elegant cabinets around them, so you enjoy class-leading audio performance from speakers that better suit your décor and lifestyle. And since they all share a consistency of tonal accuracy, our on-wall, in-wall, floor or stand-mounting speakers may be mixed for the perfect aesthetic and sonic result in any environment. In the strength and depth of our ever-evolving product portfolio, Monitor Audio continues to demonstrate the power of a high quality, high performance loudspeaker brand that serves every application, taste and budget — and every possible desire.
