CLG160 steps up the sound quality for open air living.
Monitor Audio, the renowned British loudspeaker specialist, is ensuring installers can provide their customers with a premium quality, ‘al fresco’ audio experience, by adding a new outdoor speaker to its Climate Garden system range.
“More and more homeowners want to enjoy great quality music beyond the home,” comments Monitor Audio’s Technical Director, Dean Hartley. “Our current Climate Garden system range has already helped installers take advantage of this opportunity. But, we recognised a gap in the market for a slightly larger model that is capable of providing increased audio coverage in larger gardens. With the new CLG160, we now have the power combined with Monitor Audio’s signature quality to provide great sounding music in the great outdoors.”
The Climate Garden system CLG160 features a 6” bass driver and Monitor Audio’s 25mm Gold C-CAM dome tweeter to deliver clarity, punchy deep bass, mid to high frequencies and high sound pressure levels. The tweeter is co-axially orientated to ensure the audio is directed towards the listening zone.
Multiple speakers, including the CLG160’s little brother, the CLG140, can be connected using the integrated 70/100v line distribution system. This provides installers with a fantastic scalable system, which can feature a large number of speakers, connected to just a single amplifier with 70/100 volt line capability and crossover features. The speaker can be paired up with a Monitor Audio CLG-W12 subwoofer.
Installation is simple, thanks to the requirement for the speaker to be wired in a mono configuration and powered by one amplifier channel. The other amplifier channel can be used to power the subwoofer. This configuration allows the levels between bass and mid-high range to be easily equalized. Alternatively, the system can be designed to provide stereo operation if desired by creating stereo left/right zones.
