The new CM Architectural Loudspeakers thin-bezel and the magnetically-attached grilles reduce installation time. The series includes round grilles standard and square grilles are available. The grilles can be painted to coordinate with any surrounding décor for added installation flexibility. The grilles are rust-resistant, helping loudspeakers installed in moisture-prone areas such as saunas, bathrooms and even outdoors under eaves.

Niles’ patent-pending spring-loaded mounting clamps compensate for a number of environmental conditions that would cause the mounting surface for the new CM series to expand or contract, such as high heat and humidity.

All speakers in the line feature the same components found in Niles’ DS Directed Soundfield series including copper caps, high-level crossovers and Kapton voice coil formers. Additionally, the loudspeakers have reportedly been voiced specifically to handle content from Blu-ray discs as well as compressed music from sources such as iPods, Pandora, and Rhapsody to ensure the best in audiophile performance from virtually any source.
