Monitor Audio Core C280 2-way 8-inch In-ceiling Speakers

An 8" C-CAM® bass driver and a more highly specified version of the C-CAM gold dome tweeter offer an extended high-frequency response to 30kHz, as well as higher output and power handling capacity than the 100 Series 2-way models. Optimum imaging and set-up are established via a pivoting tweeter, high frequency (+3dB / 0dB / -3dB) level adjustment, and boundary compensation (on / off) controls.

  • 2-way design with pivoting C-CAM tweeter (15 degrees of play).
  • High overall efficiency.
  • High frequency level adjustment (3dB).
  • Boundary compensation control.
  • Audio match with CP range 200 models and Silver Series hi-fi speakers.
  • Our innovative Tri-Grip® fixing system is easier to install than conventional clamping schemes but provides three times the surface area and a better surface seal, maximising bass response and mid-range clarity.
  • Magnetic and easily removable steel grille.
  • Paint-able surface to blend with the living environment. Additional scrim material is provided for trouble free painting.
