Wharfedale C170 in-ceiling speaker

The C170 is an in-ceiling speaker, created to integrate the convenience and quality of modern home-theatre and hi-fidelity audio reproduction with the style and cleanliness of interior design without compromise to either. The series connects rooms with a seamless flow of music, unfettered by clumsy cabling or intrusive boxes.

The C170 features a 150mm kevlar bass driver and a 25mm ball mounted, ferrofluid cooled neodynium tweeter which can be adjusted as desired. Both drive units are adjustable to -3dB, 0 or +3dB via a front mounted switch. This enables a good, even frequency response to be achieved regardless of environment.

The speaker is supplied in ‘Raddison’ white, but the surround and aluminium gauze can be painted any colour to blend perfectly into any domestic or commercial environment. Templates for painting are supplied. An ‘anti-moisture’ rot-proof gauze backs the main aluminium gauze for additional protection and corrosion resistance in our hot and humid claimate. This makes it a perfect in-ceiling speaker for the new Home-Theare speaker requirements.
