The C380-FX uses two angled tweeters and a dipole/bipole switch to give you the best performance for your particular system. Install a pair in the ceiling behind your listening position, and set each speaker to bipole mode so that the tweeters and woofer fire at the same time. This is known as being “in phase.”
You can also install the speakers to the sides of your listening position. If that’s the case, switch to dipole mode so the tweeters fire at opposite times (“out of phase”) to create a more diffuse sound field.
Both modes provide rich, lifelike surround sound that will bring movie and video game soundtracks alive with detail.
The C380-FX uses two of Monitor’s signature 1″ C-CAM® (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) gold dome tweeters for clear, detailed highs and realistic reproduction of instruments, vocals, and dialogue. They’re the same tweeter found in many of Monitor’s highly acclaimed bookshelf and floor-standing speakers.
A tweeter level control switch on the front baffle lets you boost or cut high frequencies to best suit your room’s acoustics — a feature typically reserved for more expensive models.
