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

Protege C501
Proficient Audio Protege C501

Here's the ideal ceiling speaker for places where space is tight. The C501's compact size lets it fit almost anywhere—even in hallways and walk-in closets—yet its pivoting tweeter and high-quality 5¼-inch woofer assure excellent sound quality. High sensitivity gives you satisfying sound even from small amplifiers.

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 theater system, the C501 is tough to beat. Includes Thin-Bezel Grilles held by Neo Magnets.
