Monitor Audio Silver 8 Floorstanding Speaker
The Monitor Audio Silver 8 floorstanding speaker has a new three-way design featuring Silver's 4" C-CAM RST midrange driver flanked by long-throw C-CAM RST 6" bass drivers. Introduced for Silver, this specialized configuration is optimized for greater accuracy over a critical frequency band to deliver superb midrange focus and precision as well as extended bass. Silver 8 also boasts Silver's new 1" C-CAM tweeter.
"Talk about hopes realized! From the second the system was powered up, the Silver 8s impressed me," raves Kalman Rubinson in his Stereophile review for December 31, 2014. "I'm at a loss to point to any way in which, for its size and price, the Monitor Audio Silver 8 disappointed. I've been looking at speakers for $3000/pair or less for a while, and have not heard any that I would prefer to the Monitor Audio Silver 8."
Unlike conventional driver cones, the new C-CAM (Ceramic-Coated Aluminum/Magnesium) RST (Rigid Surface Technology) bass and midrange drivers take the form of a continuous uninterrupted dish. Strengthened by a uniquely dimpled surface, their greater area radiates more sound, and driven by a larger voice coil and motor, delivers greater efficiency and a cleaner, more accurate response.
Silver 8 and 10 models feature a newly developed, low distortion 4" midrange driver, operating in its own optimized enclosure to expose visceral levels of detail where your sense of hearing is most acute.
Inspired engineering has also produced the Silver tweeter. Silver's new 1" C-CAM tweeter design vents internally around the outside of the magnet system into a large rear-loading chamber. This releases pressure at the back of the tweeter while producing much lower resonance and better overall damping. You'll experience a wider, more accurate, and extended frequency response for greater harmonic authenticity and a smoother more natural handover with the midbass driver.
The New Silver Series
If you love fabulous sound and design, get ready for a blissful experience. The new Monitor Audio Silver Series delivers a unity of form and function that is as precise as it is compelling. It's the product of over forty years of speaker development, invested with a love for accurate audio.
Features introduced by Monitor Audio's prestigious Platinum and Gold series speakers have been enhanced, and recent innovations in driver engineering have been incorporated across an extended new line-up.
Super-slender and finished in a choice of rosenut, walnut, natural oak, and black oak real-wood veneers (and in devastatingly chic gloss black and white), the new Silver series is made to re-energize entertainment in your home.
Bolt-through Driver Design
Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing vibration at the driver/cabinet interface. By this innovative method, drivers are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to the back of the cabinet. The bolt not only acts as a rigid cabinet brace to reduce box coloration, it removes the need for conventional driver fixings as well, effectively decoupling the driver and baffle to eliminate another source of unwanted resonance. The result is a more fluid communication of mid-range frequencies, and with the absence of front driver fixings, a cleaner more refined overall appearance, especially in tandem with RX's 'invisible' magnetic grille location.
HiVe II (High Velocity) Reflex Port
Developed for the flagship Gold Signature range, the HiVe II reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on airflow as a gun-barrel on a bullet. Rifled groves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so that air moves in and out of the port more efficiently for a faster more dynamic bass response.
Monitor Audio Silver Centre Speaker
The compact Silver Centre from Monitor Audio features twin C-CAM RST bass/midrange drivers in a familiar midrange-tweeter-midrange array. It’s been tuned to match the tonal characteristics of the new Silver series speakers for a seamless front soundstage in multi-channel applications – delivering crisp, clear dialog and full-range sound.
The Silver Centre features two 6" C-CAM RST bass/midrange drivers and a 1" C-CAM gold dome tweeter.
Monitor Audio Silver FX Surround Speaker
The discreetly profile angled baffle design of the new Silver FX surround speaker incorporates a single front-mounted 6" C-CAM RST bass/midrange driver and twin side-mounted C-CAM tweeters. It can be flush-mounted on side or rear walls, and you can change its dispersion characteristics with the flick of a switch for stellar dipole or bi-pole operation. Needless to say, it's carefully voice matched to blend in seamlessly with other members of the Silver series.
Monitor Audio Silver W12 Powered Subwoofer
The new Silver W12 active subwoofer introduces a number of new design developments housed in a compact high power unit. A new 500-watt DSP controlled amplifier utiliszes advanced switch-mode power conversion techniques and superior processing to increase dynamic control and deliver far greater headroom with the front-firing 12" C-CAM driver.
The W12's sealed box construction ensures that this potent unity of power and control delivers tight, fast and tuneful bass all the way down to a thunderous 22Hz in a typical room set up. The sealed box, front-firing driver design makes for easy installation and EQ where close proximity to a room boundary may be necessary.
The W-12 also features Monitor Audio's proprietary and innovative APC (Automatic Position Correction) system, which uses a microphone and test tones to identify detrimental room modes and correct frequency response for the room and position automatically. This simple and quick process will ensure perfectly optimized seismic bass quality in any room.
The RXW-12's rigid, sealed 1" MDF enclosure is front-loaded because it promotes the fastest, deepest bass down to 20 Hz and also for ease of installation. Wherever you place it, top mounted controls are provided for convenient parameter adjustment. For added convenience, a 12V trigger provides power syncing with your AV receiver. A USB input allows firmware updates.
Rear panel controls include Crossover Frequency Control, Phase Control Switch, Power Mode Switch (On-Auto-Off), and 12 V Trigger Input. On top of the sub you'll find a Volume Control (for fine tuning the volume) along with Movie, Music, and Impact equalization settings. Connections consist of RCA line level inputs and RCA line level outputs.
Kimber Kable KWIK-12 In-Wall 12-Gauge Speaker Cable
Dual-gauge configuration KWIK-12 from Kimber Kable boasts a large-gauge and small-gauge conductor for each channel, or four spiraled conductors in all. This unique 12-awg strand design, along with Kimber's special-recipe dielectric, adds up to one of the best sounding bulk cables for home theater and distributed sound you're ever likely to hear. The slippery PVC outer jacket pulls easily through walls.
