Few architectural speaker manufacturers focus on fine-tuning enclosed cabinets for their speakers. Monitor Audio’s new Controlled Performance (CP) architectural speakers do a good job addressing this problem by being fully enclosed.

Unlike open-backed architectural speakers, the CP range is fitted with fully-sealed, low-resonant back-boxes that are optimized for in-wall or in-ceiling location. Because of the enclosed nature of the CP design, a superior level of sound isolation between rooms and floors is a further benefit. Magnetically attached grills provide a discrete appearance.

Monitor focuses hard on driver design and sound quality. Great sounding woofers and tweeters round out the line. The engineered co-axial configurations of bass/mid drivers 1-inch C-CAM dome tweeter makes off axis sound way better.  In each case the tweeter pivots to direct high frequencies for perfect imaging.

The flagship models feature the pivoting IDC (Inverted Dual Concentric) module, which houses both a 4-inch midrange driver and 1-inch tweeter to allow focus of localizable frequencies into the listening area. High frequency and boundary controls on the higher performance models removes bass boom.

Monitor is a step up brand that has sealed the deal with their new CP line of speakers.
