Polk Audio MC80 High Performance 8 1/2″ Round In-Ceiling Speakers
The Polk Audio MC80 is a large, basic in-ceiling loudspeaker that makes dynamic whole-house audio possible for the first time. With an 8-inch midwoofer for smooth, wide-range response with low distortion, and a 3/4-inch aimable silk dome tweeter with a powerful neodymium magnet structure for clear, detailed highs and excellent imaging (even in off-axis listening positions), the MC80 is ideal for multi-zone audio systems and delivers more uniform sound coverage even in larger rooms.
Fill your room with great sound, without sacrificing an inch of floor space to bulky speakers. Polk’s MC80 speakers install flush in your ceiling for a sleek, décor-friendly look. The 3/4″ aimable tweeter lets you direct the high-frequencies where you like, so you can fine-tune your system’s sound. The 8″ woofer provides rich, smooth lows. And this speaker’s moisture-resistant design means you can use it in your kitchen, bathroom, sauna, or even under the eaves outside.
Building a system
Install a pair of the MC80s for stereo music listening. These speakers can also work as the fronts, center, and surrounds in a surround sound system. The MC80s are voice-matched with the other MC in-wall and in-ceiling speakers, so you can mix and match.
Sonos CONNECT:AMP – Wireless Music Amplifier
Built-in, powerful digital amplifier
Powers large or small speakers with 55W per channel.
State of the art, great sounding amplifier is small, lightweight and very energy efficient.
Operates silently — all you hear is the music, as the amplifier is kept cool by the aluminum casing, not by a noisy fan.
Tone and volume controls adjustable for each room
Optimize sound performance for each room using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms.
Subwoofer output with automatic crossover
When adding a subwoofer, the CONNECT:AMP automatically adjusts the output to send the low frequencies to the subwoofer and the high frequencies to the speaker.
Access all your music
Pre-loaded Internet radio stations, free of charge
Get over 100,000 free radio stations, shows, and podcasts, all for free. And you can tune in without turning on your computer: browse for stations, or type in specific call letters or a radio host you love.
