Cambridge Soundworks Newton Series MC300


Bought my MC300s a long time ago along with a powered 8" downward firing Cambridge woof (won't call it a sub though at 275w you CAN feel it). First off, it took at least 2 weeks of regular use to warm the speakers up. They were pretty dim and muted and...

Amazing Midrange, full and even, with the right amount of tweeter. Small and a good price for a well designed 10 lb 13" speaker that is flexible L-R-Center with a separate woofer or sub. Efficient too, 50w is all you'll need

Needs a separate woofer or sub to provide sound below about 100 hz

This review is for the Cambridge SoundWorks Newton Series MC300IW in-wall loudspeaker. Apologies, but there was no listing for this speaker in the in-wall category, so the review appears here with the MC300 rather than in its proper place. We...

Clean, unstressed, realistic sound from about 80 Hz to the limit of human hearing

Little output below 80 Hz. Not really a weakness because this speaker is clearly intended to be used with a subwoofer; hence, one should not expect full bass extension in such a design

I recently upgraded my entire audio system to include the Cambridge Sondworks MC300 speakers. My previous system consisted of the BOSE acoustimass double cube speakers having owned them for over 6 years hence was very familiar with their performance...

Great bang for the buck. Good high mid, mid, and high frequency response. Multiple mounting options. Additional speakers can easily be purchased for extra surround channels

low frequency response - best if used with subwoofer box

I purchased a pair of the MC 300's as part of a set (the ensemble 310- slate) of speakers. I have to admit that i was underwhelmed with the looks of the speakers. They come across as plain... even bland. However, i don't buy speakers to decorate my...

Accurate, crisp, short break-in time required (8 hours), ACCURATE midrange (not boomy), airy tweeters, open soundstage, ambience is conveyed well

when price is considered, none besides grills

Prior to using the MC300 I had used the MC150. I had some difficulty hearing dialogue on the MC150 and it didn't seem to match my mains (model sixes). For dialogue the MC300 is far superior. It sounds decent for music also. They have good mid-bass from...

Very clear for music and dialogue. Overall a good center speaker

The nameplates suck

Product Specifications

A compact but powerful main speaker, the Newton MC300 uses two 4-inch midrange drivers and a 1-inch reinforced silk dome tweeter - the same array found in the T300 Tower speaker. In fact, the MC300 is the perfect center channel for the T300 Towers. But it is more than just a center channel. Its MTM (Midrange-Tweeter-Midrange) design produces a robust, wide-range, well-dispersed output with outstanding musical accuracy. The MTM array also makes the MC300 ideal for use in a home theater system because it can act as a left main, center and right main speaker-resulting in smooth, seamless transitions across the home theater's soundstage.
