Monitor Audio’s CPC-120 In-Ceiling Speaker

Monitor Audio’s CP (Controlled Performance) Series of backbox enclosed in-ceiling loudspeakers features a “halogen” sized mini design to fit into the standard cut-out hole used to house halogen lighting fixtures.

Halogen speaker sizes, the CPC-120 uses a 2.5-inch wide x 3.75-inch deep tapered line enclosure made of die-cast aluminum. This substantial acoustic suspension enclosure enables the two-inch full-range driver to achieve optimal performance in a small package. The aluminum enclosure also addresses issues of rear sound radiation and fire retardancy.

Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing resonance issues. The CPC-120 drive unit is mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to back of the cabinet. The bolt not only acts as a rigid cabinet brace, it also removes the need for conventional driver fixing. High-quality gold-plated push terminals are then used to secure a reliable connection.

At the heart of the CPC-120 is a two-inch full-range micro-driver utilizing a one-inch long-throw voice coil and features a die-cast aluminum chassis. The MMP II (Metal Matrix Polymer) driver shares the same technologies found across Monitor Audio’s range of upscale speakers, allowing the CPC-120 to blend seamlessly with larger floor-standing, on-wall, in-wall, or in-ceiling models. The system includes a low-frequency filter/protection circuit for greater reliability and performance.

The CPC-120 is available in white, chrome, brass, and brushed steel bezel finishes enabling it to match with Halogen light finishes.
