The CT180-T2 features an 8" bass driver and gives you all the convenience of stereo sound from a single in-ceiling speaker for high quality sound in general applications or where space is at a premium.
Monitor Audio invest as much care, expertise and research in the smallest loudspeaker as they do in the grandest. Irrespective of architecture or interior design, Monitor Audio’s range gives you the freedom to supply high quality sound from a versatile mix of floor, stand, wall and flush-mounted speakers.
The CT180-T2 offers clear, dynamic performance and feature dual, independent pivoting 1-inch C-CAM tweeters, providing stereo sound from a single speaker. The T2 models are ideal for bathrooms, hallways, or any area where space does not allow for stereo pairs. As part of the 100 Series of architectural speakers, it is easy to install and offers the biggest bass driver size of any speaker in its class, providing a convincing full-range sound in a wide range of locations.
The gold dome tweeter is formed from a ceramic-coated aluminium/magnesium alloy, gold anodised to a specific thickness for ideal stiffness and damping characteristics. Its new profile and surround geometry have been developed using advanced modelling tools, to provide the optimum qualities for accurate sound reproduction. The new design moves the first order of breakup to beyond 35kHz, producing a linear response way beyond audibility, which matches the wide frequency bandwidth available from HD music and cinema sound formats. The gold dome is thinner, lighter, more rigid and therefore more efficient than domes made from other materials which are prone to distortion in the audio band.
Metal Matrix Polymer driver cones have a polypropylene base loaded with metallic particles to offer a rigid and responsive structure. They are manufactured using a sophisticated high-pressure injection process, which modulates cone thickness at critical points to optimise stiffness and consistency, resulting in a superior sonic performance.
Optimum imaging and set-up are established via a pivoting tweeter and high-frequency (+3dB / 0dB /-3dB) level adjustment.
