New Prod­uct Spot­light [ Mon­i­tor Au­dio Ra­dius Speak­ers ]


The Mon­i­tor Au­dio Ra­dius se­ries is de­signed to meet the de­mands of to­day’s style-con­scious au­dio fans. The se­ries con­sists of eight brand new mod­els, in­clud­ing a soundbar and two sub­woofers. The key per­for­mance en­hance­ments come from the all-metal C-CAM mid-bass driv­ers, pre­vi­ously avail­able in the high-per­for­mance Gold GX range, and now avail­able in the Ra­dius se­ries for the first time. Un­like con­ven­tional cones, which in­cor­po­rate a cen­tre aper­ture for the voice-coil, the new Ra­dius bass cones take the form of a con­tin­u­ous rigid sur­face, cou­pled to a longer voice coil and larger mo­tor by an in­no­va­tive, more ef­fi­cient drive as­sem­bly. Sup­ported by HiVe port re­flex load­ing, the Ra­dius bass driv­ers of­fer greater drive force, longer ex­cur­sions and lower dis­tor­tion, pro­duc­ing cleaner, more ex­tended and ac­cu­rate bass def­i­ni­tion. Com­ple­ment­ing the im­proved bass per­for­mance is a newly de­vel­oped 1” C-CAM tweeter de­signed to de­liver the widest, clean­est fre­quency range pos­si­ble from the com­pact Ra­dius cab­i­nets. Ap­ply­ing re­fine­ments from Mon­i­tor Au­dio’s ar­chi­tec­tural speak­ers, the Ra­dius tweeter vents in­ter­nally through a spe­cially de­signed hous­ing and around the out­side of the mag­net sys­tem to a rear-load­ing cham­ber for much lower res­o­nance and bet­ter damp­ing. As a re­sult lower fre­quen­cies at the crossover point with the bass driver are more ac­cu­rately re­solved, cre­at­ing a smoother, more nat­u­ral re­sponse from the sys­tem. Those look­ing to ac­com­pany their flat panel TV with a dis­crete-look­ing sound sys­tem should take a look at the on-wall Ra­dius225 Com­pact LCR speaker or the Ra­diusONE Com­pact Soundbar, both which are now just 2.5” deep. Top­ping off the se­ries are en­tirely re-en­gi­neered Ra­dius sub­woofer cubes which of­fer a dra­matic leap in per­for­mance over their pre­de­ces­sors. Pow­ered by gen­er­ously up-rated am­pli­fiers, they fea­ture newly de­vel­oped dual driver sys­tems of side­fir­ing ac­tive and pas­sive ABR C-CAM driv­ers, colour­coded to match cab­i­net fin­ish. $399 to $1,299.
