Essential Info

Niles Audio Stereo Input loudspeakers are ideal for small rooms where positioning two loudspeakers is not feasible. Examples would be a small kitchen, bathroom, hallway, or small bedroom. A glass fiber woofer cones with dual voice coils and dual UltraSilk soft dome tweeters on a stereo imaging array create spacious stereo sound from a single speaker. Whether you are listening to background talk radio or a complete orchestra, Niles Audio CM series speakers deliver optimal performance and reliability.

Precision tuned and voiced fixed woofer ceiling-mount loudspeakers provide graduated performance for all types of applications. A 8-inch glass fiber woofer cone with a curvilinear profile for smoother sound and less peaking at high frequencies and a dual voice coil design reproduces left and right channel inputs from a single speaker. The high quality butyl surround increases sensitivity and preserves durability. Integrated baffle/frame assembly increases the cone area for deeper bass than competitive speakers of the same diameterDual 1-inch Teteron tweeters provide wide dispersion for clear and detailed high frequencies. The bridge-mounted stereo imaging (Si) tweeter array directs the high-frequency sounds from both the left and right channels at opposing angles to preserve stereo separation. Three patent-pending spring tensioned mounting clamps permit quick installation and compensate for uneven mounting surfaces and varied environmental conditions. Weather-resistant construction and a MicroThin magnetically attached rust-resistant grille enables installation in moist areas, such as bathrooms or outdoors under eaves.

    About Niles CM Series Loudspeakers

    Choosing the Right Speaker for Your Application
    Niles CM Loudspeakers are designed to be installed in any standard ceiling. When choosing a location, thought should be given to the sound coverage of the loudspeaker, and ease of running the speaker wire. Niles manufactures a large variety of speaker models for many different applications, with special models for shallow depth ceilings, models with Rear Wave Enclosures to minimize any sound bleeding through to adjacent rooms, etc.
      Stereo Sound Applications - The best stereo effect will be achieved if both loudspeakers are at an equal distance from the listening area. Ideally all loudspeakers should be on the same horizontal plane. Avoid installing loudspeakers near corners to prevent a 'boomy' or diffracted sound. Also note that the lower the ceiling, the closer the loudspeaker should be placed to the listener.
      Home Theater Applications
        Left/Center/Right (LCR) - Position the center channel loudspeaker directly over the television, with the left and right speakers equidistant from the center. The separation between the left and right should not be more than the distance to the primary seating area.
          LCR Multi-Purpose Speakers - A versatile ceiling-mount loudspeaker that performs well for
          background music and home theater. Applications include blending with light can fixtures, distributed audio, LCR channel for family room, home theaters and outdoors on the patio
          LCR Performance Speakers - The perfect blend between value and performance, these loudspeakers deliver high-performance sound in a wide variety of applications. Applications include blending with light can fixtures, secondary or primary listening rooms, family rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms, LCR channel for home theaters
          LCR High-Definition Speakers - Provide superior sound quality and longevity by utilizing advanced components, materials, and circuit design. Applications include LC channel for advanced home theaters, primary listening rooms
        Rear & Side Surround Effects - For the rear speakers, position surround effects loudspeakers behind the listening area, to the inside of the front left and right speakers. The tweeters should point to the sides of the room. For the side speakers, position surround effects loudspeakers to the sides of the listening area with the tweeters in-line with the listener. The tweeters should point to the front and rear of the room.
          FX Speakers - Provide the surround effects (rear, side) channel in a wide variety of home theater and multi-channel music applications. Applications include 5.1 and 7.1-channel home theater systems and multi-channel music systems
      Single Speaker Stereo Input Applications - Stereo Input loudspeakers are ideal for small rooms where positioning two loudspeakers is not practical. Examples would be a small kitchen, bathroom, hallway, or small bedroom. Locate the loudspeaker as close to the center of the room as possible for the most even distribution of sound. Avoid installing the loudspeaker near a corner to prevent a 'boomy' or diffracted sound.
