The luxury CP-IW260X and CP-IW460X in-wall speakers combine Monitor Audio's latest drivers in compact three-way, five-driver configurations, built into closed-box designs to deliver optimum audio performance. The CP-IW460X features Monitor Audio's signature C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) cone material with RST (Rigid Surface Technology) deployed in dual 6.5" bass drivers and twin 4" mids astride a high frequency, air motion ribbon tweeter in a symmetrical 'B-M-T-M-B' configuration. All within a cast polymer cabinet with die-cast Aluminium baffle.

Technology

 

  • Dual 6.5" C-CAM bass drivers featuring RST 'dimpled' cone technology
  • Die-cast alloy bass driver chassis provides rigidity; results in punch bass and clean mid-range performance due to reduced transfer of vibrations
  • Dual 4" C-CAM mid-range drivers featuring RST 'dimpled' cone and underhung voice coil technologies
  • C-CAM Ribbon High Frequency transducer
  • Innovative HF rotating system to facilitate portrait or landscape orientation
  • Integrated back-box to provide rear sound isolation resulting in 'controlled performance'
  • Cast Polymer enclosure designed to provide high degree of rigidity and acoustic damping properties
  • High overall efficiency and maximum SPL for powerful home theatre installations
  • High power handling
  • Three-way design in a symmetrical 'B-M-T-M-B' configuration
  • High-end crossover design featuring low loss inductors and audiophile grade Polypropylene capacitors
  • Patented Tri-Grip fixing system is easier to install than conventional clamping systems providing three times the surface area and improved sealing
  • Trim-less, low profile magnetic grilles provide attractive, discreet visual aspect and easy installation and servicing
  • Paintable grille to blend with the living environment

 

 

Ribbon Transducer

Monitor Audio's proprietary ribbon tweeter design uses an ultra-thin sandwich of C-CAM alloy suspended in a powerful transverse magnetic field of high energy NeFeB rare earth magnets. The ribbon serves as both voice coil and radiating diaphragm, with every part of the ribbon driven directly and simultaneously without energy storage. Having a mass of just 18mg, its diaphragm is able to start and stop in an instant, producing a transient response capable of defining the leading edge and natural harmonic resonance of complex musical sounds. Specified to reach ultra-high frequencies up to an elusive 100 kHz, Platinum's magical ribbon tweeter will reproduce with ease every last nuance and detail from vinyl, CD, DVD-A and SACD, together with the wider bandwidth of Blu-ray.
