Monitor Audio’s new Bronze speaker range uses the new generation of C-CAM drivers with cabinets in four vinyl finishes: Black Oak, Walnut, Rosemah and a new White Ash. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grilles are included too.
The proprietary bass and mid drivers utilise a new type of ‘dished’ C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface to radiate sound. Unbroken by the centre pole-piece aperture.
The driver’s voice coil is thermally coupled to the back of the cone.A new 25mm C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter extends each system’s frequency response to 30kHz. Structural improvements include a new venting system that allows air to flow outside the tweeter’s magnet assembly into a rear loading chamber, avoiding air compression.
The new Bronze drivers are individually mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions the driver at the front. Reflex loading is of the HiVeII variety, borrowed from the Gold range, which uses rifled port grooves. Prices are from £230 per pair.
