Get to know this product.

Choose from a beautifully flush fit or discreet, trimless retrofit. Round and square options are on offer, while further choice is provided by the option of ceiling mounting or fitting into a standard stud wall construction.

Used on its own, or in multiples, the CF230 presents beautiful sounding audio from its specially designed coincident driver. Featuring Monitor Audio’s innovative C-CAM metal cone technology and housing both the bass-midrange driver and tweeter within a single assembly unit, the result is superb quality sound from an incredibly compact driver.

In a pre-construction set-up, the CFB3-R & CFB3-SQ enable a seamless, flush fit appearance. You get clean lines, with no shadow-creating edges, and paint the grille to match the ceiling and the speaker disappears even further into the background.

The CFB3-KIT retrofit installation kit cleverly provides a firm fixing behind plasterboard/Sheetrock and requires just three screws to complete the fit. Forget cutting out huge chunks of material, and say goodbye to expensive bracket assemblies.

Add a subwoofer and the result is deep bass to further enhance the already impressive sound. Designed specifically for this model, the driver and chassis is a one-piece moulding, which saves space and enables maximum driver size compared to grille size. The completely enclosed rear assembly, and its fine mesh prevents ingress of dust and residual building materials.

The CF230’s ability to fit into any environment opens up numerous system possibilities. Available in mono or stereo formations, the CF230 provides consistent coverage in a room of around 3m², with a ceiling height of around 2.4m. It’s easy to drive, and its impedance of 8 Ohms means that a single stereo amplifier, such as the Monitor Audio IA150-2, can comfortably power a brace of CF230s.

Journey beyond a four-speaker set-up and a multi-channel amplifier, such as Monitor’s own eight-channel A150-8C, works impeccably well. Whatever the size of the space, the CF230 set-up remains compact, whilst sonically covering a wider area than a conventional in-ceiling speaker, saving on cost as well as visual impact.

Designed and built by people who intimately understand the world of home technology, the CF230 is a shoo-in for any custom speaker project.
