The Monitor Audio Bronze 2, available in Winnipeg from Creative Audio, builds on the strength of its predecessor’s audiophile cred with a neutral tonal balance and high detail resolution combined with high overall efficiency and power handling. These are the perfect ingredients for compelling listening. Armed with a larger 6.5” C-CAM bass driver and front-firing HiVe port, the turbo-charged Monitor Audio Bronze 2 is capable of effortless dynamic scale and presence, revealing all the dramatic contrast in music and cinema sound. For a speaker of its size, the Two will deliver breath-taking results mounted on a stand and placed up to 8” from a wall.
The latest champion moves up a gear from its predecessor and rival budget speakers because Monitor Audio Bronze is simply in a class of its own. The features speak for themselves. For the first time Monitor Audio uses spectacular steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes, available in a choice of Black Oak, Walnut, and a White Ash. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grilles add to the impression of streamlined sophistication, lending Bronze the look and feel of a premium range.
It sounds like one as well. Drawing on Monitor Audio’s flagship technologies they’ve engineered the acoustic design to deliver lower distortion and a wider response from seven beautifully matched, deceptively slender models. Combined for natural full-range music and home cinema sound, Monitor Audio Bronze will transform the quality of your home entertainment at a price that won’t break the bank.
The C-CAM driver configurations give Monitor Audio Bronze the tonal accuracy and consistency of a class leader. Harnessing driver technology developed for their acclaimed mid-market Silver models, Monitor Audio Bronze explodes the myth that high power handling with low distortion belongs exclusively to the expensive world of audiophile design.
The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for Monitor Audio Bronze’s open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality utilize a type of ‘dished’ C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface
to radiate sound. Unbroken by the centre 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 25 mm 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 the accurate reproduction of, say, the decay of a piano string or the crash of a hi-hat. Within the Monitor Audio Bronze tweeter,
an innovative venting system allows air to ow 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. Structural improvements in dome geometry and drive mechanism have boosted accuracy and extension at the top end of the tweeter’s range as well, generating the extraordinary high frequency quality that helps to define the sound of Monitor Audio Bronze.
Enhancing system performance is Monitor Audio’s ‘bolt-through’ driver mounting design, first devised for their Radius series models but now adopted by all our speaker ranges. The drivers are individually mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions the driver at the front. Cleverly this triple-action feature braces the cabinet structure for lower box colouration while removing the need for conventional front fixings, reducing unwanted driver/cabinet resonance and simultaneously improving aesthetic appeal.
The reflex loading found on all Monitor Audio Bronze models (excluding Centre, FX and W10) is of the HiVe II variety, borrowed from the Gold range, which uses rifled port grooves to speed the air in and out of the cabinet for cleaner, more powerful bass and a superior transient response.
Best possible signal integrity through the crossover is supplied by polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors. With slightly higher overall impedance than their BX predecessors, the Monitor Audio Bronze line-up offers superior system-building flexibility with a wider choice of partnering equipment.
