Control 328C and Control 328CT have been engineered from the ground up to deliver exceptional next-generation performance in a coaxial point source design ceiling loudspeaker. The combination of the low frequency cone and the shaped mounting baffle performs as a true 12 inch (300 mm) diameter waveguide for the high frequencies. A unique metal throat transitions seemlessly to the horn to eliminate high frequency beaming which is common among this category of speaker. The result is a coaxial speaker with wide, extremely consistent 120° coverage on a broadband basis.
