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 theater system, the C501 is tough to beat.
