The CSS230 is a brilliantly innovative back-box design with an impressively shallow 50 mm (2″) mounting depth, custom built to offer hi-fi levels of performance in spaces where no high quality speaker has gone before.

Between 2″ stud frames or where pipework or cabling reduces mounting depth, the hybrid back-box construction and proprietary full-range driver array combine to deliver consistent audio quality with exceptional installation versatility.

The hybrid back-box provides the best of all worlds for installer and customer. Combined, the three proprietary 3″ mid-bass units achieve the bass output of a 6 1/2″ driver, all from a super-stealthy flush-fitted profile.

In keeping with Monitor Audio’s renowned design rigour, the crossover comprises high quality film capacitors and low loss inductors – selected for signal integrity – ensuring peerless audio detail and dynamics from a speaker of its size and application. When the CSS230 is in ‘ported’ mode, a fine gauze protects the acoustic system from dust ingress.
