The Building Blocks: Monitor Drivers
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminium Bass/Midrange Cones. First seen in Paradigm’s Reference line-up, very high stiffness-to-mass ratio and outstanding internal damping. The result? Remarkable midrange clarity, superb extended bass response and freedom from unwanted resonances and distortions. In an affordable audio category – unbelievable quality!
Advanced S-PAL™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminium Domes with powerful neodymium magnets and ferro-fluid cooling for increased power handling! Highs are more soaring and spacious, crystal clear and undiluted even at the higher bandwidths.
Wire Mesh Tweeter Guard and WaveGuide™. More Reference technology, ensuring a smooth, wide panorama of audiophile-quality sound. Wire mesh protection for the pure-aluminium tweeter.
Sophisticated crossovers in an affordable audiophile product! Again, it’s almost unheard of: polypropylene film or bipolar electrolytic capacitors, air core and laminated core inductors, high-power resistors. Crossover topologies are first and second-order with corresponding acoustic slopes of second and third-order providing optimal bandwidth and seamless integration as drivers cross over.
Long-Travel Motor/Magnet Structures. Speakers actually plumb deeper. This is, in part, attributable to the advanced motor/magnet structures: high-temperature copper or aluminium wire voice coils (varies by model) wound on Kapton formers, oversized magnets with all components FEA-optimized.
Foam-Rubber Elastomer Surrounds. Reference Studio Series geometry helps achieve that play loud AND play deep effect by allowing longer, expertly controlled cone travel.
Baffled about Baffles? Don’t Be! For those of you who are wondering. A baffle is the surface on which the speakers or drivers are mounted. It prevents the front and rear sound waves from interfering with each other causing sound cancellation, as well as to absorb sound energy, particularly problematic reflected sound. So a speaker baffle is pretty darn important.
The new Monitor Series 7 baffle is a work of art – worthy of a spot in the arches of a colosseum. It boasts …
A clean aesthetic, nothing to see but the the beautiful drivers, no screws or fasteners visible so the speakers look great with the covers on or off. (we think they sound better off, by the way).
Thick and rigid ¾˝ MDF across the line-up is FEA-optimized (including a stress analysis) to overcome the limitations of the physical materials.A modal frequency analysis allowed us to deliver the most resonance-, vibration- and coloration-free Monitor Series cabinet to date! Critically tuned to the rest of the cabinet; rap on the baffle … you’ll hurt nothing but your knuckles!
