CF230 3" discreet 2 way in-ceiling speaker

The CF230 is Monitor Audio’s most visually discreetspeaker system, providing an abundance of design possibilities for integrators, architects and installers. Note requires CFB3kit

Its ingeniously designed retrofit and pre-construction kit ( NOTE: one of these kits are required and make it a dream to install, while itsC-CAM-based driver array delivers the superb audio this British makeris famed for.

Choose from a beautifully flush fit or discreet, trimlessretrofit. Round and square options are on offer, while further choice is provided by the option of ceiling mountingor fitting into a standard stud wall construction.

Used on its own, or in multiples, the CF230 presents beautiful sounding audio from its specially designed coincident driver.

Featuring Monitor Audio’s innovativeC-CAMmetal cone technology and housing both the bass-midrange driver and tweeter within a single assembly unit, the result is superb quality sound from an incredibly compact driver.

In a pre-construction set-up, theCFB3-R&CFB3-SQenablea seamless, flush fit appearance.

You get clean lines, with no shadow-creating edges, and paint the grille to match the ceiling and the speaker disappears even further into the background.

TheCFB3-KITretrofit installation kit cleverly provides a firmfixing behind plasterboard/Sheetrock and requires just threescrews to complete the fit.

Forget cutting out huge chunks of material, and say goodbye to expensive bracket assemblies.

Add a subwoofer and the result is deep bass to further enhance the already impressive sound.

Designed specifically for this model, the driver and chassis is a one-piece moulding, which saves space and enables maximum driver size compared to grille size.

The completely enclosed rear assembly, and its fine mesh prevents ingress of dust and residual building materials.

The CF230’s ability to fit into any environment opens up numerous system possibilities.

Available in mono or stereo formations, the CF230 provides consistent coverage in a room of around 3m², with aceiling height of around 2.4m.

It’s easy to drive, and its impedance of 8 Ohms means that a single stereo amplifier, such as the Monitor AudioIA150-2, can comfortably power a brace of CF230s.

Journey beyond a four-speaker set-up and a multi-channel amplifier, such as Monitor’s own eight-channelA150-8C, works impeccably well.

Whatever the size of the space, the CF230 set-up remains compact, whilst sonically covering a wider area than a conventional in-ceiling speaker, saving on cost as well as visual impact.

Designed and built by people who intimately understand the world of home technology, the CF230 is a shoo-in for anycustom speaker project.
