The Super Slim Monitor Audio CSS230 in-ceiling speaker

Limited on ceiling void space or facing a situation where pipework or cabling is reducing mounting depth, The super Slim CSS230 at only 50mm deep is designed to fit the most demanding install scenarios.

Featuring a hybrid backbox and combining three proprietary 3" mid-bass units enables the speaker to 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 incorporates high-quality film capacitors and low loss inductors - chosen for signal integrity. This ensures unequalled 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 potential dust ingress
