Key Features of Monitor Audio C280

Discreet design

The Monitor Audio C280 In-Ceiling Speaker has high overall efficiency with a stylish discreet design to ensure an unmissable audio experience with Pure Theatre. 

Precise control

For the most accurate sound, your listening position ideally needs to be in line with the treble. Without this, some of the precision is lost. Thanks to its pivoting tweeter, the C280 is ideally equipped. Simply direct the tweeter towards where you're most likely to be in the room. High frequency, level and boundary compensation adjustment further help in refining the sound of this quality ceiling speaker.

Powerful sound

Using an 8" (203mm) bass cone, the C280 is ideal for use in larger rooms and at higher volume levels. Larger coned speakers like these are also ideal for higher ceilings, where the sound has further to travel.

Top quality sound

Using Monitor Audio's C-CAM gold treble unit and C-CAM bass driver, the C280 offers genuine hi-fi sound quality. The C-CAM (Ceramic Coated Aluminium Magnesium) gold treble unit gives an extended frequency response that now stretches to 30 kHz, well above the audible spectrum. This means lower notes that we can hear aren't compressed downwards or harmonically compromised for a treble response that's smooth, sweet and detailed.

The C280 Speaker can also be mounted in-wall.

Who Are Monitor Audio?

Monitor Audio was founded in 1972. From a small base near Cambridge, a tight-knit team of engineers, assembled loudspeakers by hand – with quality, precision and a near-maddening perfectionism. This is still with Monitor Audio today. From the very first speaker, the iconic MA1, the brand developed, innovated, designed and refined, with a pioneering approach that saw patent after patent filed. It’s an ethos that hasn’t changed at all. Monitor Audio is one of very few high-end audio brands still developing new, cutting-edge technologies today.
