        Product description

        Value Packed In-Ceiling Sound

        Monitor Audio has managed to pack a ton of value into their C165 in-ceiling speaker. It uses some of the same technology found in their higher-end speakers, including Monitor's directionally aimable gold dome tweeter. 

        Use the C165 for music as part of a low-profile, custom-installed whole-house audio system. Or use it as an overhead effects speaker in a Monitor Audio home theater system.

        Signature Sound from Monitor Audio's Gold Dome Tweeter

        The C165 uses Monitor's signature 1" C-CAM® (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) gold dome tweeter for clear, detailed highs and realistic reproduction of instruments, vocals, and dialogue. It's the same tweeter found in many of Monitor's highly acclaimed bookshelf and floor-standing speakers. 

        A tweeter level control switch on the front baffle lets you boost or cut high frequencies to best suit your room's acoustics — a feature typically reserved for more expensive models.

        Solid Mid-Range Bass

        This speaker uses a 6-1/2 MMP® II (Metal Matrix Polymer) woofer for textured, accurate midrange and punchy bass. An advanced crossover network helps ensure smooth, full-range sound throughout the speaker's frequency range.


        - 2-way design with pivoting C-CAM tweeters ( 15 degrees of play ).

        - High overall efficiency.

        - High frequency level adjustment ( 3 dB ).

        - Audio match with CP range 100 models, Climate 10, Bronze BX and Radius 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, maximizing 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.

        - Features dust protection cover that is designed to prevent the ingress of dirt or dust into the driver and crossover.
