More Information


For over forty years Monitor Audio have been building global acclaim fr award-winning speaker lines, continuously fine-tuning their technologies to create generations of gorgeous hi-fi and home theatre speaker systems, as we ll as an evolving range of flush-mounting architectural speakers designed to offer the perfect union of great sound and near-invisible installation.

The task of squeezing high sound quality from a speaker small enough to be concealed within a wall or ceiling is usually beset with compromises, but for the new Controlled Performance CP-IW260X in-wall design Monitor Audio have overcome the challenges of scale to deliver the natural, full-range audio energy you'd expect from a free-standing high-end box. In a leap of engineering ingenuity, Monitor Audio have distilled the knowhow driving their flagship hi-fi speakers into a super-compact in-wall format, so that dedicated music lovers and home theatre fans can enjoy the right, detailed, high-impact dynamics they crave - from a speaker that physically disappears in the room.

Big Sound

Big Sound

The large luxury CP-IW260X in-wall speaker remains steathy whilst providing a big sound. The CP-IW260X combines Monitor Audio's latest drivers in a three-way, five-driver configuration, built into closed-box designs to deliver optimum audio performance.

High Tech

High Tech

The 260X uses the latest generation 1" Gold Dome C-DAM tweeter from the Silver range of speakers, which employs a specially vented housing, allowing the driver to operate freely for lower resonance, optimum damping a d greater accuracy over a wider response.

Mid / Bass

Mid / Bass

Further down the frequency spectrum, bass and mid frequency fidelity is preserved by Monitor Audio's latest "dished" cone drivers. The cones are formed from a continuous sheet of C-CAM for a larger, more digid radiating area. With larger motors, underhung voice coils and robust die-cast alloy chassis, the design delivers exceptionally low distortion and efficiency for deep, clean, dynamic bass.

Enclosed Design

The Monitor Audio Controlled Performance range are fitted with acoustically-sealed cast-polymer back boxes, which prevent the sound from leaking into the wall cavity. With this single enhancement you get consistently high audio quality wherever the CP-IW260X is installed.
