Monitor Audio CP-WT140LCR Single
The new CP-WT140LCR model is designed as a multi-purpose LCR speaker.
Sold as a single speaker.
Ideal for installation as a dedicated centre-channel home theatre speaker, and in portrait or landscape orientations as a high performance music or theatre satellite.
The entry-level CP-WT140LCR utilises twin 4 MMP II drivers astride a C-CAM tweeter. Working in tandem, the drivers offer greater radiating area than a single 6 bass driver, and consequently deliver improved efficiency, power handling and sound pressure levels from a compact design perfect for retro-fit installation.
Complete with integrated fully-sealed back boxes, Monitor Audios 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. In every case a precision-optimised system of drivers and enclosure perfected by our latest technologies, simplifies the installation of discreet high performance sound.
Unlike open-backed designs whose success is subject to the properties of the wall cavity behind, the new CPs will deliver the full potential of Monitor Audios 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 decor. Once easily and securely installed via Monitor Audios patented tri-grip mounting, high reliability is assured by CPs airtight enclosure design, which protects each precision-engineered driver system against the damaging ingress of dust and dirt.
Monitor Audio CP-WT140LCR At A Glance:
Pivoting C-CAM gold dome tweeter.
2 x MMPII bass drivers.
High overall efficiency.
High frequency level adjustment (+/-3dB).
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, maximising bass response and mid-range clarity.
Magnetic and easily removable steel grille.
Paint-able surface to blend with the living environment. Additional scrim material is provided for trouble free painting.
Airtight enclosure design, which protects each precision-engineered driver system against the damaging ingress of dust and dirt.
Gold Dome C-CAM
The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling 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.
Tri-Grip Dog Fixings
All models feature a unique Tri-Grip fixing design. This 3-position ''dog'' style fixing provides a greater contact surface area than other types, whilst saving installation time. The Tri-Grip fixings are made from a tough re-enforced polymer, giving a secure fixing without the risk of over-tightening.
Magnetic Grille Fixing
Ultra-powerful Neodymium magnets hold the speaker grilles in place, allowing for easier installation and access. In-ceiling models offer the opportunity to use square and circular grilles for the ideal aesthetic result
Metal Matrix Polymer driver cones have 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.
