Proficient Audio Protege C501 In-Ceiling Speaker

Proficient Audio Protege C501 In-Ceiling Speaker

Ceiling Speaker with 5-1/4″ Woofer and -1/2″ Pivoting Hard-Dome Polyamide Tweeter

Compact, affordable and powerful

The C501 squeezes into tight spaces where other ceiling speakers can’t fit. Its small size gives it a discreet look ideal for elegant interiors and narrow hallways —and you can also use more C501s to spread the sound out better. The 5 ¼-inch woofer delivers surprisingly deep 40 Hz bass, while a pivoting ½-inch polyamide hard dome tweeter produces clear highs.

Any amp or receiver can easily drive the C501. Its 8-ohm nominal impedance and unusually high 90 dB sensitivity give you plenty of volume even with a low-powered multiroom amplifier. For small rooms, hallways, kitchens, and even the surround channels of a compact media room home theatre system, the C501 is tough to beat. Includes Thin-Bezel Grilles held by Neo Magnets.
