Incredible Surround Sound, Sight Unseen
Monitor Audio Architectural Speakers Deliver Immersive and Discreet Sound
We recently added Monitor Audio to our burgeoning collection of hi-fi audio brands, already one of the most extensive in Atlanta. While their Platinum series is highly regarded and well-reviewed, their broad architectural (built-in) speaker line is one that also deserves your attention. They offer the same accurate, detailed Monitor Audio sound in a package discreetly hidden in the walls.
Many different types of speakers can work for home theater and media room duty. Floor standers, stand-mount bookshelf and mini-towers, on-wall, in-wall, and in-ceiling can all be used. The choice depends mainly on your design and style preferences and sometimes on the layout and construction of your media space.
While in-ceiling speakers are de rigueur for height effects from Dolby Atmos and DTS:X immersive soundtracks, some people think architectural speakers represent a compromise in sound quality for the sake of style. Once upon a time, that may have been true - but no more. This month, we have a case in point - Monitor Audio’s Controlled Performance Series. Simply put, they produce some of the most incredible sound we’ve ever heard from architectural speakers at Georgia Home Theater. So if you are looking for a surround sound system for your media space in Alpharetta or Atlanta, you owe it to yourself to listen to these.
Read on to learn more about the Monitor Audio Controlled Performance line.
Fully Sealed Boxes
Many architectural speakers are not sealed - they are designed to use the wall cavity as the speaker enclosure for bass and mid-bass response. That means they might sound great in one room with a particular type of wall construction, but not so great in another room.
Monitor Audio’s Controlled Performance line has fully sealed enclosures for the speaker. This assures that the speaker sounds the same no matter the wall construction material. The sealed design also optimizes the frequency response from the drivers; in the same way, a cabinet is carefully designed, braced, and often ported for a freestanding speaker. It also allows for better sound isolation between rooms, which can be an important consideration in many Alpharetta-area homes.
Excellence in Metal
Speaker manufacturers often look for an edge in their quest to deliver the best audio performance. For Monitor Audio, that edge is in the metal they use in their drivers. Their C-CAM drivers are ceramic-coated aluminum/magnesium that deliver fast transient response to frequencies with very low distortion, resulting in what you ultimately want - rich, full, uncolored sound the way the filmmaker or artist intended. Every Controlled Performance speaker features this technology.
Superb Surround Sound, Nearly Invisible
If you don’t want any speakers visible in your theater or media room, you don’t need to compromise on sound quality. The CP-IW460X models, for example, feature dual 6.5-inch bass drivers, two 4-inch mid-ranges, and an air motion ribbon tweeter, similar to Monitor Audio’s high-end freestanding models. These speakers have all the impact you want for powerful movie action scenes, as well as all the nuance needed for music and dialog. They can be mixed and matched with Controlled Performance in-ceiling and in-wall height and surround speakers for immersive audio that you need to hear to believe.
