Monitor Audio redefines Custom Installation with new Creator Series.
New models featuring advanced acoustic technologies and smart installer features, segmented into a simple, innovative tiered approach to range classification that offers high-performance sound for customers and flexible system creation for installers.
Essex, UK – 31st January, 2023: Monitor Audio is proud to announce the launch of the new Creator Series. This fresh approach to the custom installation market delivers high-quality sound and clarity, with a comprehensive, clearly defined range of high-performance in-wall and in-ceiling loudspeakers. The Creator Series redefines British high-fidelity architectural sound.
The new Creator Series features nineteen models, fourteen in-ceiling and five in-wall, arranged in three clearly defined tiers. Each of which offers enhanced performance levels and additional functionality over the preceding tier, because Monitor Audio understands that it’s easier to design a fantastic-sounding installation with premium-quality products based on clear, sensible principles.
Through Monitor Audio’s Partner Programme (MAPP), extensive feedback from a wide network of experienced installers has been collected and analysed. As a result, Creator Series is a more simplified range, ensuring performance levels are clearly defined.
A standout innovation within the series is the use of the patent-pending Quik-Link terminal. This revolutionises speed of installation. Quik-Link allows the installer to remove the terminal block from the physical speaker and pre-terminate the speaker cables to it. Once the speaker is ready to be fitted within its cut-out, the Quik-Link can be offered up to the connection point on the speaker and magnetically snaps and locks into place.
Other features include Tri-Grip II, an evolution of the dog-leg mechanism that is considerably stronger and more reliable than the previous generation, making both speaker placement and extraction even simpler.
Creator Series is simpler for installers, but also more satisfying for end-users thanks to the application of key Monitor Audio acoustic innovations traditionally found in its premium standalone loudspeakers.
Across medium and large in-ceiling speaker sizes, the acoustic team have kept the overall cut-out sizes the same as previous models yet increased the driver size from 6.5” to 7” and from 8” to 9” inch drivers–pushing for greater high-fidelity performance.
Driver technology has also been carefully configured within each Tier from C-CAM tweeters and mid-bass drivers (Tier 1), RST II mid-range and bass drivers (Tier 2), and RST II mid-range drivers and RDT III bass drivers (Tier 3). The Tier 3 in-wall model also boasts an MPD II transducer based on the THX Certified Ultra Cinergy home cinema series.
Classification made simple
The new Creator Series features nineteen models, split over three carefully configured performance Tiers:
Tier 1: A range of in-ceiling and in-wall loudspeakers designed for cost effective installations where product simplicity and solid acoustic performance is required. All Tier 1 speakers are a 2-way configuration and feature new C-CAM mid-bass drivers and C-CAM tweeters with Uniform Dispersion (UD) Waveguide I.
Tier 2: All Tier 2 speakers are a 2-way configuration, with RST II mid-bass drivers, based on those found in the award-winning Silver 7G range, and C-CAM tweeters with Uniform Dispersion (UD) Waveguide II.
Tier 3: All Tier 3 in-ceiling speakers are a 3-way configuration with RDT III bass drivers, based on those found in the new Platinum Series 3G. A new Inverted Dual Concentric II (IDC II) coaxial mid/tweeter range driver array, this ground up redesign features a larger voice coil to ensure the Uniform Dispersion (UD)Waveguide II can be used to control the high-frequency directivity. Effectively a point source, it creates an exceptionally large soundstage in the listening environment.
Transparent Design Philosophy
Every Monitor Audio product is the result of intense collaboration, drawing on decades of experience within the design team and ensuring that all the elements of performance, technology and design work in harmony.
The Creator Series is available now.
