An Introduction to Monitor Audio’s ‘Award Winning’ Compact Speakers
Monitor Audio is a speaker manufacturer perhaps best known for its award winning and high valued big box speakers. But what do you do when you do not have the space for these larger speakers? Well rest easy, as Monitor Audio uses the same award winning technology in a wide range of bookshelf loudspeakers, offering a solution for almost any room or décor, so you can enjoy audiophile sound quality regardless of the space.
The third generation Radius Series features the award winning Radius 90 hi-fi mini monitor. The Radius 90 incorporates a 4” C-CAM bass driver and 1” C-CAM tweeter for a tuneful, controlled and powerful sound in pairs or combined as front and rear speakers in an AV system along with the 200 or 225, and the 380/ 390 subs. Use the optional MASM speaker mount or any standard wall bracket for wall mounting via the 90’s single point fixing. Optional floor stands expand the installation possibilities still further.
“…a wonderfully fast, engaging and incisive sound.”
“The end result is a little loudspeaker that’s quite simply big audio dynamite!”

The BX2 develops the considerable talents of its award-winning BR2 forerunner to a new intensity. Improved crossover and driver designs combine to re-calibrate the capabilities of an acknowledged class champion, bringing greater dynamic expression, mid-range clarity and lower distortion to lovers of music and film sound. Loaded with a 6 1/2″ C-CAM bass-mid driver and 1″ C-CAM tweeter, the BX2’s high quality cabinet features unobtrusive dimensions, making it very easy to position, even in smaller rooms. Compact in size, but equipped to reproduce sound of immense stature and detail, the BX2 is Monitor Audio’s new definitive budget blockbuster.

The GX100 is a larger 2-way stand mount speaker featuring a 6.5″ RST bass driver and C-CAM ribbon transducer. Operating with the performance of a typical 8″ driver, its proprietary 6.5″ design provides higher overall efficiency with dynamic headroom to deliver impressive bass extension and control. The GX100’s uncomplicated 2-way configuration renders complex material with tonal accuracy and perfect timing. It may occupy the space of a stand-mount speaker, but the GX100 sounds like a reference floor-stander. Optional, dedicated floor stands are available.
