It Will Defy Your Size-to-Performance Assumptions
Monitor Audio's innovative Bronze BX1 bookshelf speaker squeezes the performance of a much larger speaker into a format that's easy to enjoy anywhere in the home. A wider more consistent frequency response from its C-CAM drivers will give you the fidelity and bandwidth you'll need to liberate the essence of your music and home theater favorites, while leaving the choice of installation options wide open.
The two-way BX1 utilizes a single 5-1/2" C-CAM bass driver and 1" C-CAM tweeter in a system designed to defy your size-to-performance assumptions.
The Bronze BX Series
Bronze BX blends the best of the company's award-winning predecessors with advanced technologies from it up-market RX and flagship Platinum ranges, Bronze BX far exceeds the standards of performance and quality you'd normally expect from a speaker in its price class. By using ever more accurate computer simulations and the latest materials, Monitor Audio has fine-tuned the acclaimed Bronze Reference, developing its astonishingly precise and naturally dynamic sound to place Bronze BX on a level way beyond the capabilities of many more expensive rivals.
A sophisticated acoustic design of dedicated driver chambers, rigid bracing, bolt-through drivers, and hard-wired connections ensures that the sonic impact of Bronze BX is as tangible and three-dimensional as the silky BX cabinets themselves.
New C-CAM Bass Drivers
One of the key BX design features is the use of high performance C-CAM alloy (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) for its bass drivers. C-CAM is extremely rigid and holds its shape during explosive film scenes and dynamic musical passages. It's also very light, giving high efficiency. This means that BX models will convey more dynamic detail at a naturally faster rate than ordinary speakers, so you can enjoy jaw-dropping musical resolution and movie surround sound action that enhances the highest definition pictures. To ensure ultimate reliability Monitor Audio optimized the bass driver system with Finite Element Analysis (FEA), strengthening the chassis at critical points and perfecting a more precise motor action for greater accuracy and deeper, more liquid bass.
New C-CAM Tweeter
Ever more advanced computer simulation has allowed Monitor Audio to optimize the C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) tweeter design to deliver higher sensitivity, greater detail and a wider bandwidth beyond 30 kHz. The new tweeter includes a dedicated chamber, which incorporates graduated damping to reduce undesirable resonances for a smoother, more accurate response.
Single Bolt-Through Drivers
Taking a page from Monitor Audio's highly acclaimed RX speakers, all BX drivers are secured on a single rigid bolt, which is fixed to the back panel and passes through the cabinet. This means that the driver effectively 'floats' in the front baffle and cannot transmit vibrations to the cabinet itself, thereby eliminating a common source of box coloration in more conventional speaker designs. The driver bolts also act to further brace the cabinet, adding rigidity and transparency to the system.
Bronze BX may be modestly priced, but it can still impart the spirit of luxury. To complement the slender proportions and precision finish of the BX design, magnetic grille attachment adds to a sense of fuss-free chic.
Crossover design has been optimized for each BX speaker. Incorporating audiophile-grade components, the new PCB layouts keep paths as short as possible to maintain high levels of signal integrity.
HiVE II Reflex Ports
A technology developed for Monitor Audio's flagship Platinum and mid-market RX speakers uses a series of rifled grooves inside the reflex port to speed the transit of air from the cabinet, resulting in more dynamic bass.
Resplendent in a choice of high quality vinyl wood finishes and built with the accuracy that exemplifies the Monitor Audio brand world-wide, the seven slender Bronze BX models will look gorgeous in any room. From their smart range ID baffle-crowns to their precision-machined footings, the Bronze BX speakers project an understated elegance, which borrows styling cues from Monitor Audio's flagship Platinum speakers.
