Monitor Audio's wall-hugging Bronze FX surround speaker will combine seamlessly with front channels to establish the immersive audio experience essential to successful home theater design. It provides the perfect mix of diffuse or direct surround sound in a Bronze home theater system. Matched acoustically and aesthetically with its LCR counterparts, Bronze FX has an angled-baffle cabinet that can be flush-mounted on side or rear walls. Its dispersion characteristics can be changed at the flick of a switch to accommodate the precise requirements for di-pole (diffuse) or bi-pole (direct) operation. For the first time Monitor Audio is using spectacular steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes, available in a choice of Black Oak and Walnut. The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for Bronze's open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality use 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. Ingeniously, 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 reproduction of harmonic frequencies vital to the accurate reproduction of, say, the decay of a piano string or the crash of a hi-hat. Within the Bronze tweeter, 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.
