Monitor Audio's slender Bronze 5 floorstanding speaker's 5-1/2" C-CAM bass driver and 5-1/2" C-CAM bass/mid driver are arranged in a two and half way system configuration, operating in separate acoustic chambers with front and rear firing HiVe II ports to provide differential tuning for higher efficiency and greater low frequency extension. The low-distortion architecture combines clean, expressive mid and high frequencies with punchy room-filling bass lines delivering a naturally rhythmic and addictive blend of large-scale dynamics and detail from a surprisingly unobtrusive tower. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grilles add to the streamlined sophistication. Monitor Audio has over-engineered the acoustic design to deliver lower distortion and a wider response. The Bronze series will transform the quality of your home entertainment at a price that won't break the bank. The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for Bronze's open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality utilize a new type of 'dished' C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface to radiate sound. Unbroken by the center pole-piece aperture of conventional driver designs, the cone is inherently more rigid and efficient while being less prone to break-up under high drive conditions, resulting in exceptional detail resolution and life-like tonality. The driver's voice coil is thermally coupled to the back of the cone, which draws heat away from the coil for better power handling and optimal operation at all volume levels. Above the drivers, a new one-inch C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter extends each system's frequency response to an ultra-sonic 30 kHz, allowing the full reproduction of harmonic frequencies vital to accurate reproduction. An innovative venting system allows air to flow outside the tweeter's magnet assembly into a rear loading chamber, preventing air from being compressed at the back of the dome for lower distortion, reduced mechanical resonance, and improved damping.
