Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum Bass/Midrange Cones: First seen in their Paradigm Reference lineup, 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 Carbon-Infused Injection-Molded Polypropylene Bass Cones: The high mineral content and injection-molding process have created a durable and rigid cone with affords Paradigm Monior 11 v.7 bragging rights for cone consistency and repeatability.
Advanced S-Pal™ Satin-Anodized Pure-Aluminum 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.
Sophisticated crossovers almost unheard of in an affordable audiophile product! 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. Despite fewer drivers than in previous series’, floorstanding and center channel speakers actually plumb deeper. This is, in part, attributable to the advanced motor/magnet structures: high-temperature copper or aluminum wire voice coils (varies by model) wound on Kapton formers, oversized magnets with all components FEA-optimized.
Foam-Rubber Elastomer Surrounds. Reference Studio 100 geometry! Help 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 baffle is a work of art. It boasts …
– A clean aesthetic, nothing to see but the the beautiful drivers, no screws or fasteners visible
– Thick and rigid ¾˝ MDF across the lineup
– 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!
New Monitor floorstanders sit on a plinth, a sleek and secure base that provides stability for the slimmer footprint — an aesthetically pleasing columnar look.
