Mon­i­tor Au­dio has gone all square with its new Mon­i­tor 50 book­shelf/ stand­mount, which is the small­est model in its new-for-2018 Mon­i­tor Se­ries.

Rather than be­ing rec­tan­gu­lar, the cab­i­net is square—which we wouldn’t have thought would be great for stand­ing waves—and houses a 140mm-di­am­e­ter bass/midrange driver and a 25mm-di­am­e­ter ‘C-CAM’ tweeter. The cab­i­net is re­flex-loaded, with the port at the rear. The bass/midrange driver uses Mon­i­tor Au­dio’s dis­tinc­tive translu­cent or­ange-coloured MMP II (Metal Ma­trix Poly­mer) for its cone ma­te­rial, while the tweeter’s dome is made from what Mon­i­tor Au­dio says is ‘ ce­ramic coated alu­minium mag­ne­sium’ (hence C-CAM).

Mon­i­tor Au­dio specs the Mon­i­tor 50’s fre­quency re­sponse at 55Hz– 30kHz ±3dB, the sen­si­tiv­ity at 87dBSPL (1w/1m) and the im­ped­ance at 8 (nom­i­nal). The speaker isn’t ex­actly square, by the way, be­cause it ac­tu­ally mea­sures 206×206×237.8mm (HWD), but the depth fig­ure does in­clude the grille and the sin­gle set of rear speaker ter­mi­nals. The cab­i­nets are avail­able in black, white or wal­nut fin­ishes.
