Where the In-Wall Meets the Audiophile

"From the mayhem of people shouting during a scene in The Revenant, to the crashing of buildings and the pounding synthesizer bass lines in Deadpool that could be felt throughout the room, the CP-IW460X managed to effectively recreate these movies in all their respective glory"

"These are the first in-wall speakers I can actually say are good enough to replace standalone speakers for both home theatre and two-channel applications"

Monitor Audio debuts high-end Controlled Performance in-wall speakers

"Monitor Audio has expanded its architectural loudspeaker line-up with two new flagship Controlled Performance in-wall models. The CP-IW260X and CP-IW460X sport compact three-way, five-driver configurations, built into a closed-box design. The duo are fronted by trimless magnetic grilles.

The speakers, which have been designed for music and home cinema sound, employ a high-end design and use technology tickled down from the brand’s top-end free standing line-up. C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) doped cones are deployed in a dual 6.5-inch bass driver, twin 4-inch mid and tweeter (‘B-M-T-M-B’) configuration."

A "True Audiophile Performance" for Residential Systems


"...they excelled in producing great detail and had a nice wide dispersion that did an admirable job of filling the room with sound."


"Sonically, these are moving into the land of true bookshelf replacement, with rich audio that has plenty of depth and detail, as well as SPL."


"How good did the 380s sound? I had them in my showroom leaning against some tower speakers with built subs and playing some music, and a customer listened for a while and then said, 'Wow! Those tower speakers really sound great. Who makes those?'


"The IWA-250 amp provides enough control to blend the sub's bass to match the speaker, room, and listening preference."

"...it definitely produces those lowest octaves in music, giving extra weight and presence to the sound."
