If you’re looking to completely hide the speakers in your room, Monitor Audio would like you to consider its new CWT series.  The technologies used in this new series are developed from Monitor Audio’s high-end audiophile speakers, which have been refined and honed over the last 40 years. CWT speakers have been developed to provide synergy with Monitor Audio’s other custom install and home speakers.

The CWT series offers versatile installation options for both in-ceiling and in-wall applications. This high performance range of loudspeakers has been created to provide flexible installation in stealthy ‘trimless’ round or square grille styles. Featuring proven technologies and unique design features, CWT models combine high efficiency and wide frequency range to facilitate a flexible system design across a wide range of demanding residential and commercial installations. All CWT bass drivers feature MMPII cone technology coupled with Monitor Audio’s trade mark C-CAM gold dome tweeter. High frequency performance has been enhanced further by recent improvements to the C-CAM tweeter, taking the frequency band way past the limits of human hearing. The pivoting tweeter can be directed towards the listening space to provide ideal imaging and reduce unwanted reflections when installed close to corners or wall boundaries. A simple crossover design was implemented using high grade audiophile components to preserve the signal and provide a smooth yet detailed character. 

All models have been designed to be less than 4″ deep, which means both round and square grille styles can fit into a standard stud wall, or where mounting depth is restricted. By integrating the bass driver basket and frame, Monitor Audio engineers have managed to reduce the overall size by around 25% compared to its counterparts, whilst maintaining the same driver size and performance. Grilles are held in place magnetically by high power Neodymium magnets which provide simple installation and servicing. Since the sub structures for the units are identical, it’s possible to change the grille styles from round to square (or vice-versa), should you so desire by simply removing the magnetic grille and replacing with a new one.
