MP-R80 Multi Purpose In-Ceiling Speakers
The MP-R80 is designed for larger rooms (250 square feet or more), rooms with high ceilings, or simply rooms where more bass is preferred. The aimable silk dome tweeter provides excellent clarity and is hidden behind the grille for a professional, flush-mount appearance. Use the +/-3dB switch to balance the high frequencies to your personal listening taste and to adjust for speaker positioning and room anamolies. Both the grille and frame can be painted to match your decor.

Why HTD Speakers are better

The MP-R80 is an ideal pair of speakers for adding warm, clear background music in large rooms (250 square feet and more). Bass frequencies are difficult to reproduce with in-ceiling speakers and bass notes are easily lost in large rooms. The MP-R80 compensates for this with an oversized 8" polypropylene woofer. The aimable soft silk dome tweeter blends seemlessly with the woofer to provide smooth and clear highs.

Polypropylene is used in many of today's better in-wall and in-ceiling speaker cones because it is lightweight, rigid, and cost-effective to produce. A light cone means the speaker is fast which is important for accuracy and detail; the more rigid the cone membrane the less the cone warps during movement, again resulting in a more accurate performance. Silk dome tweeters accurately reproduce the high frequencies and offer a smoother tone than other, less expensive fabric tweeters.

Like all of the speakers in our Multi Purpose line, the tweeter in the MP-R80 is positioned behind the grille and can be tilted in any direction up to 15 degrees off-axis. This allows the highest, most directional frequencies to be aimed at the primary listening area while allowing the speaker to maintain its professional flush-mount appearance.

Tone is controlled through a +/-3dB switch on the tweeter. This feature (normally found only on much more expensive speakers) allows you to customize the sound to your room and personal taste. It is also helpful when trying to "match" your in-wall speakers to other speakers in your surround sound system.

Our Multi Purpose line of speakers are easy to install and include all mounting hardware, a template for cutting the hole, and an Owner's Manual with an installation guide and tips to ensure your speakers look and sound great for years to come. The grille and frame can be painted to match your decor.

All HTD speakers include a 5-year warranty and 30-day no-risk guarantee.
